Stephens Miller ignores reality, attacks Rust's support for autism treatment

Delegate Tom Rust (R-86) was an advocate for a bill that would have required insurers to pay for therapy for children diagnosed with autism-spectrum disorders. So why is Stephens Miller distorting Tom Rust's record?

Does Tom hate puppies too? And lollipops? Maybe rainbows?

Miller's attack would be a lot more funny if it wasn't so desperately false. Consider the facts:

Rust attended a rally organized by the Autism Help Network in July to push for the legislation.

In February, the Washington Post's Loudoun Extra noted that "Many politicians representing Loudoun have been vocal in support of this legislation, including delegates Bob Marshall (R-13), David Poisson (D-32), Chuck Caputo (D-67), Tom Rust (R-86) and Joe T. May (R-33) and state senators Jill Holtzman Vogel (R-27) and Mark Herring (D-33)."

This month, the Virginia Autism Project just named Delegate Rust as a friend of their past and future efforts.

The kicker? Miller's name was not included on the list.

I'm sorry, but that's just despicable.

Think about this, the honest hard working American who work daily to follow the laws of the land, trying hard day after day to raise honest U.S. American children. Respect. books, family, friends, games and Salute the U.S.A. flag, all the, what used to be proper things in life are going to hell in this country so all the punk left wing liberial politically correct degenerates can go ahead and destroy this country that WE have fought to keep free. I am sick of watching the Honest Hard Working Americans get screwed by a bunch of communist democrat no good political crooks who are living high on the hog for now, but i tell you this, soon we all have a meeting with Lord Jesus in Heaven and we shall see where the real power lays. Laugh now for you shall mourn and weep. This was once a great country but look what is happining to us. Are there no longer any Americans with backbone? Communist are ripping at our throats. Are only a handfull of us seeing what is happening? I am crippled with parkinsons disease and other crippling diseases, a Vietnam Era Veteran (Honorable) and Proud, but sick to my stomach for what this country is turning into. It makes me sick to my stomach. I sit here in great pain this morning, but, i cry thinking about the parents who sent their sons and daughters off to battle to keep murderous rapist and thugs from infiltrating this great country, U.S.A. Meany of our troops come back crippled or dead,but it seems the bad guys are already here and each time a Proud U.S. Military person goes down on the field of battle, another communist from hell takes their place while the spineless politicians and rich get richer. Sure wish all you left wing freaks would go make well for yourselves in a third world country and enjoy your leberial ways.
