This is the only thing this worthless congressman does every year, and the lame democrats keep re-electing him.

Rep. Scott is only interested in keeping his job and will do whatever is necessary to keep it. He could care less about future generations and this congressional district as a whole. Many of the people who attend these events are already receiving free medical care along with other freebies like EBT, Welfare, Section 8 housing, free breakfast and lunch for their school age children, etc. at the expense of others. They have made it their mission in life to freeload off others, and Rep. Scott is promoting this behavior.

He needs to be voted out and put in the unemployment line. The citizens within his district need to send a clear message this November. The taxpayers will no longer tolerate elected officials who cater to those who won't help themselves. Those who think that they are entitled to these items and the government and everyone else owes them something, need to be reeducated to learn that you reap what you sow.

.....Welcome to The Land of Freebies :

.....The Democrat Plantation of Clayton County, Ga.

......Ignorance must be maintained in Clayton County, therefore, it must be encouraged and insured with a conscientious effort. A lot of Elected Officials in our Clayton County Government, relies heavily on the Voters being Stupid, Ignorant, and Lopsided...Their Futures and Careers depends on this. Lopsided Ignorance and Stupidly is eagerly embraced with open arms in Clayton County, it is nurtured, fed, fostered by false prophets, and this requires a considerable amount of effort to keep the people in this county Stupid, Ignorant, and Lopsided.
