Huh? You want to reduce fraud, so you cut help for EVERYBODY? That must be some more tea bagger logic. And four out of every five people who receive SNAP work. Nine in ten have children. You're an idiot. You support welfare for rich people, but not poor people - you're the perfect tea bagger. 200 of the largest, most profitable corporations in the US pay no taxes whatsoever, and you're bitching about poor people. We give more money to Exxon than we spend on the entire SNAP program, and you bitch about poor people. Keep up the good work. Just don't wonder why your party can't win an election.
Tea bag this Mf'er. Your comments always get around to calling anyone who doesn't agree with you a tea bagger. Blow me.

George......If you look at the census and also the wefare guide lines then you will see. A family of 4 usually gets at least $500 per month. Plus if they also get TANF the get another $900. Add on housing assistance with help of utilities is an average of another $900 per month. That adds up to $2300 a month and multiply by 12. You take that answer and divide by 52 for the weeks in a year. After you get that answer you divide by 40 to determine a full time work week and it averages to over $13 an hour. It veries from state to state. Hawaii has the biggest hourly rate.

Some more numbers for ya. The total average for a WVian if they get food stamps the entire year? 1440 dollars. Mr Fincher? 269,000 dollars per year. Average WVian lifelong foodtamper got 18,720 dollars in the same time frame that Mr. Fincher got 3,500,000 dollars. LOL

WVStamper vs Republican Congressman

$4 vs $135 Per Day
$1440 vs $269,000 Per Year
$18720 vs $3,500,000 Total (same time)

AFTER farm subsidies are cut then we can talk about cutting food stamps. Sorry but in my book poor hungry people come well before rich Congressmen if we are going to start the penny pinching. And so do MANY other things.

$900 a month TANF? Wrong by over $400.
$900 a month housing? Wrong by over $300

TANK is under $400 for a family of 3. SNAP benefits are $1.40 per meal, per person (impossible).

That is ridiculous, no one gets that much. Your numbers are extremely inflated and not realistic in the least. And this was about cutting food stamps, why the need to try and lump every possible benefit program in together?

I showed you PROOF of how much the average West Virginia food stamp recipient gets. Lets stick with that for now because that is what the Republicans want to cut. We can talk about cutting other benefit programs another time.

There's conservative. But people who think that Bush's tax cuts for billionaires, trillion-dollar wars and the GOP's $100 million in votes for laws that can't ever become laws are good things can't be labeled "conservative." They're reckless spenders. The hypocrisy makes them tea baggers. I know lots of conservatives. They aren't tea baggers.

120/month for food stamps = 0.75 cents an hour

This was about food stamps and I showed PROOF of 75 cents an hour. You are talking about many others things which most people do not even get and seem to have pulled numbers out of the air with no verification provided. What do all those other things have to do with rich welfare getting Republicans wanting to cut food stamps?

George......I do not think they should cut food stamps. They should have the farmers grow all they can to contribute to a food bank to help offset some of the cost of food stamps.

Here's what's funniest.

The GOP wants to slash public assistance to the poor (mostly children). We know that - they've made it clear. They'll say that's because they want people to work, despite the fact that 4 out of every 5 recipients already work. But they also want to cut minimum wage, despite knowing that the simplest way to reduce assistance programs is to increase wages. So they'll say people need to get better jobs. But they want to cut education funding, the only way to get a better job. So they'll say we need more jobs that pay more. But they've blocked every bill aimed at punishing outsourcers and every jobs bill set before them.

Then they wonder why they can't win an election.

Wow.

Bacon Hater......Again with the people working getting food stamps. I already showed you many pages back on that. The ones working and getting food stamps are mostly part time jobs and they are below the poverty level. You can only work so many hours compared to your pay. Do ya think after a few pages of this topic that the facts go away? And you better look a the national average. Obama's numbers took another dive as well as the democrats.

Of course they're part time or low-paying jobs. They're on food stamps, dipshit. The point you dumb tea baggers can't get through your heads is that you're calling people who work lazy and saying they sit on their asses collecting, when nothing could be further from the truth.

Tell you what, you name me the Republican candidate that can win the GOP primary AND the general election, and I'll start worrying about 2016. You don't have one.

The midterms are meaningless. The Republicans have no chance of winning the Senate and the Democrats have little chance of winning the House. Congress is little more than a punchline. They've marginalized themselves. Anything that gets done gets done because the President issues an executive order or holds the dumb tea baggers hostage and rams it down their throats.
