Food Stamps Cut By $8.7 Billion

I'd like to hear what you republicans and other "conservatives" think about it.

After you finish fapping, of course.

Aren't you happy that Obama caved in to republican pressure and agreed to let indigent Americans starve?

Should be a banner day for good conservatives who just want the handouts to stop.*



*Unless that handout is going to a highly profitable farming corporation or big oil, that is.

I imagine they're mostly used by families. No matter the circumstances no child should starve (go hungry) on their parents behalf.

Wonder how many registered republicans are living off of food stamps.

Republican leadership like to paint the fact that those on food stamps are the lazy, liberal, left, but dismiss the notion that their own kind require them too.

Anyway, I sense a backlash coming.

Irrelevant in my eyes. Welfare (as it is currently set up) is wrong no matter who's getting it, republicans or democrats.

We are talking human beings not stray cats.

For the record? Do you have a record I can view where the bottom line states no one is starving in the 2nd most obese country on earth. Wasn't aware the only connection to obesity was gluttony. My mistake for assuming that obesity is only caused by our over indulgence.

1. Get a job
2. Buy everything you want
3. Realize you don't have enough left over for food/health care/rent
4. Cry to government
5. Repeat

You imply that my position is that 100% on assistance are scammers
Your position is that 0% are
The truth is probably in the middle, which is a TON of scammers

To be clear, please do not confuse poor nutrition to starvation.
This does not exist in the United States.



It is impossible to starve in the US. Impossible.

No one is claiming that. The vast majority of those on public assistance do, and hurt the ones that are legitimately in a bad situations through no fault of their own. Being poor, then having 5 kids, then crying that you do not have enough is not "no fault of your own." Being an addict or having a substance abuse problem (including gambling and alcohol) is not "no fault of your own." Having a criminal record and no one wants to hire you is also not "no fault of your own."

Just because the US doesn't experience starvation to the level of African states don't imply that no one in the US goes hungry.

Not yet at least, thanks to Our various social programs and the Dems in the Senate and Prez holding fast against a devolution to feudalism and raw "law of the jungle" society.

Let the TPers and radical right have their way though, this is what it might look like just outside the closed gates of 1% communities (except the faces would be predominantly white and significantly GOP and Southern rather than the black inner city meme the GOP/TP have been insidiously implying since at least the sixties).
