Wal-Mart and Food Stamps

Shouldn’t Wal-Mart be lobbying Republicans in Congress for reinstatement of the Food Stamp program (SNAP) the Repubs cut out of the Farm Bill recently? Shouldn’t they also be arguing for an expansion for that program?

I mean, without food stamps, their employees would begin to starve and that would put pressure on Wal-Mart to increase their starvation level wages. And since up to 40% of Wal-Mart’s profits come in the form of government support of their employees (displacing what they’s have to pay for labor otherwise) this could be a big hit to their bottom line.

Just askin’.
