    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ub792aeMjlM&feature]‪The Town - Best Scene (oneliner)‬‏ - YouTube[/ame]

    The clip opens with the character played by Ben Affleck entering a room and saying: “I need your help. I can’t tell you what it is. You can never ask me about it later. And we’re going to hurt some people.”

    The other character thinks about it for a minute and then asks, “Whose car are we going to take?”

    “In the scene they chose to inspire their House freshmen, one of the crooks gives a pep talk to the other right before they both put on hockey masks, bludgeon two men with sticks and shoot a man in the leg,” Mr. Schumer said, a wicked grin on his face. “Literally in the movie, the protagonists say, ‘People are going to get hurt.’ But they have to go ahead and do it anyway.”

    “Ladies and gentlemen,” he continued, “this is your House Republican majority.”

    Some people feel that clip may not be the best choice, but seriously, doesn't that describe their policies perfectly?

    Except for the very wealthy and corporations, who do they help? Not even their own base.

    I read a curious statistic. 40% of those receiving Medicare don't believe they are getting government assistance. I wonder which party the majority of those people belong too?
