The Republican politicians who are so self-righteously cutting rich people's taxes and gutting other people's health insurance (while secure in lifetime insurance themselves) would do well to remember the words of the prophet Amos, chapter 8:

4Hear this, you who trample the needy
and do away with the poor of the land,

“When will the New Moon be over
that we may sell grain,
and the Sabbath be ended
that we may market wheat?”—
skimping on the measure,
boosting the price
and cheating with dishonest scales,
6buying the poor with silver
and the needy for a pair of sandals,
selling even the sweepings with the wheat.
7The Lord has sworn by himself, the Pride of Jacob: “I will never forget anything they have done.

8“Will not the land tremble for this,
and all who live in it mourn?
