A fiscal wh*re is a fiscal wh*re no matter what color or Party he represents. Taking money from one person to give to another is thievery no matter who does it.
Question: What's the difference between a thief, a grifter and a Communist?
Answer: A thief steals your stuff, a grifter steals your stuff and tries to make you feel good about it, a Communist steals your stuff and tries to make you feel like it was your fault because you had it in the first place.
All politicians are Communists at heart as soon as they try to "solve problems" with money that belongs to someone else.
