Barack Obama, our next President

Rep. Stephen Fincher (R-TN) agitated against food aid for poor Americans included in the Farm Bill during last week’s House Agricultural Committee debate, accusing the government of stealing “other people’s money.” Funding for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) has already been decimated in both the House and Senate versions of the Farm Bill, cutting off nearly 2 million working families, children, and seniors from food assistance.

Fincher invoked the Bible in his defense of the devastating cuts, quoting,“The one who is unwilling to work shall not eat.”

At a Holiday Inn in Memphis over the weekend, Fincher expanded on his version of the Christian social gospel:“The role of citizens, of Christians, of humanity is to take care of each other, but not for Washington to steal from those in the country and give to others in the country.”

While Fincher interprets food assistance for the needy as “stealing,” he has not similarly condemned the Farm Bill’s massive agricultural subsidies. In fact, he supported a proposal to expand crop insurance by $9 billion over the next 10 years. Fincher has a great personal stake in maintaining these particular government handouts, as the second most heavily subsidized farmer in Congress and one of the largest subsidy recipients in Tennessee history:

USDA data collected in EWG’s 2013 farm subsidy database update — going live tomorrow –shows that Fincher collected a staggering $3.48 million in “our” money from 1999 to 2012. In 2012 alone, the congressman was cut a government check for a $70,000 direct payment. Direct payments are issued automatically, regardless of need, and go predominantly to the largest, most profitable farm operations in the country.

Fincher’s $70,000 farm subsidy haul in 2012 dwarfs the average 2012 SNAP benefit in Tennessee of $1,586.40, and it is nearly double of Tennessee’s median household income. After voting to cut SNAP by more than $20 billion, Fincher joined his colleagues to support a proposal to expand crop insurance subsidies by $9 billion over the next 10 years.

Then, he throws a wedding for his daughter at a local restaurant with a buffet and no open bar; go figure that one out.

Explain how Boehner spent 50 million dollars to vote against nobama care. Where were the extra expenses? The house was on overtime? They turned up the heat because the house was in session? They had to hire extra pages? They had to hire extra security? Just what were the added expenses?

I've called Carol out previously for introducing that groups puke on this thread, actually before that on the Orlando forum Tea Party threads where I first encountered Carol's nonsense and baggage.
America hater's like the Carol poster deserve to be ignored, which is my plan starting today.
A true racist scumbag that one is.
I used to give her the benefit of the doubt, but with the re election of President Obama, she has shown who she really is. It's disappointing as I had considered her above these other beauts.

Have you heard that some in the D party are calling for Bill Nelson to run for Governor of Fl?

I provided two other sources providing the same information. The Latin American Tribune and WorldPress.org .

Ignore the one you don't like then. Doesn't change the information. Would you like me to find a few more you do like? The information will sill be the same again.

Nelson was just reelected to a six year term in the US Senate__he's 70ish__he needs to stay put and let a younger (D) take on crazy eyes.

Sink hasn't completely ruled out running again and rumor has it that Scott might be challenged by a (R) candidate in the primary__namely Adam Putnam who should be able to defeat Scott with ease.

Dummy Carol said that Clinton was "left of center" and that is why he was able to reach across the aisle!!!
President Obama is far from left of center. If he was; then he would have attempted to dismantle the Patriot Act; closed Guantanamo and let the prisoners free; pushed for universal single payer healthcare...I could go on, but you get my drift.
