TN Rep. Brown: "I suspect God might be a socialist."

I understand this is just a bit of political rhetoric from Rep. Brown but I hope she doesn't fall into the trap of thinking socialism = compassion. There are millions of people in Cuba and North Korea that would strongly disagree.


Rep. Tommie Brown, D-Chattanooga, a House Finance Committee member, said that as cuts come, “I will be there doing battle for children and poor and middle-class families.

“We have to try to protect them,” she said. “Maybe that’s socialism, but I suspect God might be a socialist, particularly Jesus Christ when he stopped to feed the multitudes.”
