October 23, 2013 12:00 am

Actual GOP weapons of mass destruction, not "imagined" WMDs:

Iraq lie, Afghanistan mismanagement, economic crash.

Constant push for bank deregulation, tax cuts for wealthy and corporations and high interest student loans.

Voter suppression tactics, gerrymandering.

Filibusters, sequester, government shutdown.

Keystone pipeline, fracking, drilling in Gulf and downsizing of EPA.

Overt Tea Party racism. Rush Limbaugh's diatribe against Sandra Fluke and "Feminazis."

Support of vouchers for seniors, privatization of Medicare (at age 67), Social Security (at age 70), Medicaid and schools. No additional mental illness funding.

Nonstop lying about ACA, birth control pills and Planned Parenthood services. High infant mortality rate. Decreasing longevity. Highest number of health-related bankruptcies in world.

Support right-to-work legislation. Block every jobs bill and minimum wage increase. Cut unemployment benefits and food stamp eligibility.
