Tillis Wants to 'Divide and Conquer' Those on Public Assistance

Just as Thom Tillis (R) was cruising to the Republican U.S. Senate nomination in North Carolina, Greg Sargent notes a video was uncovered which shows Tillis "appears to be a diehard 47 percenter."

In the video, Tillis said we have to "divide and conquer" those on public assistance, by getting those who really need it -- the sick -- to turn on and look down at those who "choose to get into a condition that makes them dependent on the government."

He added: "At some point, you're on your own. We may end up taking care of those babies, but we're not going to take care of you."
