Speaker Paul Ryan and House Republicans are planning a $23 billion food stamp cut that would take food assistance away from unemployed workers who are in school or job training programs.
The quintessential tenet of the corporate right is, if it’s not maximum profit, it’s not worth it. Improving the country and creating jobs aren’t 'worth it' to the GOP.
There is something wrong with Republicans who have become cold and heartless to advocate for more entitlements for the wealthy while the poorest of the poor are going to bed hungry.
By attacking poverty programs in a time of economic hardship, Republicans have proven how little human suffering accounts in their political equations.
Glenn Beck, Fox News, and the Right Wing media have jumped all over the Democrats and Obama cutting aid to the food stamp program. Many of these same people who refer to Social Security as a Ponzi scheme and unemployment benefits as welfare are expressing phony outrage over a benefit cut that will not occur until 2014.
