Rationale for Cutting Food Stamps

Republicans have insisted on cutting food aid to poor people while agreeing that Israel deserves an increase in the billions of dollars we provide for them to purchase arms and munitions (from us, by the way). Apparently the military-industrial complex has better lobbyists than the poor do.

Republicans figure that food stamps undermine the drive of American workers to go out and get a job, or maybe to get a second or third job to be able to feed their families. They feel that being hungry provides motivation.

Each of these Republicans needs to be asked if they ensured the success of their own children by making sure they went hungry every day or did they undermine their success by feeding them fully?

  1. Some Republican politicians probably received food stamps at some point personally. But THEY “earned” them, or as in that famous quote, “I was on welfare and food stamps. Did anyone help me? No!”.

    • Amazing isn’t it.

      PS We’ve moved (again)! Just change the Apt # from 28C to 17A (110 feet down and about 30 feet east). Effective Date: October 1, 2013

    The poor elect their lobbyist to Congress (when they vote) but somehow they don’t get the benefit of their choice.
