Dick Durbin Tells Republicans To "Put Down Those Ayn Rand Books"

Dick Durbin (D-Ill) Tells Republicans To "Put Down Those Ayn Rand Books"

Why don’t you pick one up, Dick, maybe you’ll learn something.
[Ed; Durbin, being a Democrat, voted FOR ObamaCare.]
Via The Hill:
Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) asked Republicans to stop reading Ayn Rand books and help Democrats pass legislation aimed to give struggling Americans a hand.
“I say to my conservative friends, put down those Ayn Rand books for a minute and take a look at the real world,” Durbin said on the Senate floor Wednesday. “If we can’t stand behind those who are struggling in life, who are we; what are we?”
Durbin was marking the 50th anniversary of President Lyndon Johnson’s war on poverty speech.
Durbin said the first step Republicans could take in showing they want to help the public would be to vote with Democrats to temporarily extend unemployment insurance for the 1.3 million people who lost their benefits on Dec. 28.

Thank You The Hill, and Zip.

And Thank You Senator Dick, ObamaCare Durbin for personifying so beautifully one of Ayn Rand's maxims.

"The uncontested absurdities of today are the accepted slogans of tomorrow. They come to be accepted by degrees, by precedent, by implication, by erosion, by default, by dint of constant pressure on one side and constant retreat on the other - until the day when they are suddenly declared to be the country's official ideology. ~ Ayn Rand"

Yes, Senator Durbin, He's ALL Yours, and You're Welcome to him, because This is every bit as much Your doing as it is Your Dear Leader's.
