"Provide for the Common Good"; The US Constitution

Here's today's NYTimes editorial. It's about Senate Republicans' opposition to extending Unemployment Insurance, even though the House has passed it.

Once again the GOPhers behavior shouts: 'I got mine, get your own! You're own your own. We only socialize losses of the rich. Pull up your own bootstraps. Safety nets are for us, not you.

So, we bail out the wealthy whose malfeasance has caused the loss of jobs and homes for millions, but turn our backs on those millions. This is the kind of behavior which makes me ashamed to admit being of the same species as these arrogant, cold hearted beings.

These people are criminals for having shredded much of the Constitution, including the pledge to "Provide for the Common Good".
