Robin Vos Is No Abraham Lincoln

"The time for social justice through government money is over."
Wisconsin State Representaive 
Robin Vos

Can't make it much plainer than that can you? 

Following in the footsteps of another Republican Abraham Lincoln -  Robin Vos defines his political ideology in a tidy 10 word summary.

This from a man who takes and dispenses bribes scholarships from lobbyists and corporations who also fund his campaigns, a guy who uses his governmental powers to get his friends jobs, a dude who sponsored legislation not only to help out a campaign contributor - but to help himself and is routinely known to keep security deposits from students for trivial reasons in the slum-lord operation his runs at Whitewater.

Feel dirty. Us too. Let us take a palette cleansing breath to consume the words of a true statesman and American; a Republican who in today's party would be run out on a rail...Abraham Lincoln:
"The legitimate object of government is to do for a community of people whatever they need to have done, but can not do at all, or can not so well do, for themselves–in their separate, and individual capacities."
Sounds a little like social justice. Robin Vos is no Abraham Lincoln.
