I think a 30% cut will hurt the poor people, the ones that need the food stamps...US needs to create jobs, and job training for anybody that receives government assistance, if they are able to work! You work for what you receive, not just get a hand-out!

When did it become my responsibility to feed your kid? It's my tax dollars. The only person that pays for my kids food is ME!

these are innocent you are talking about ignorant...think about how many children will be going hungry, every time your kids take a bite, just think of the little one's that are crying because they can't have a bite, hope you know you aren't a man/woman acting this way, if you don't have to get assistance to feed your kids, then thank GOD for it, you don't want your tax dollars feeding the less fortunate, well your tax dollars are feeding Obama's kids, what do you say about that? I would rather my tax dollars feed some child that actually needs it, then some kid that just wants something, some kids have to eat what they can get not what they want, and If you read closely I am only speaking of children here, adults can fend for themselves, this a harsh thing to say, leave little innocent children alone and go pick on the bigger issue's of the country....THey can all my tax dollars and feed the little children!!!!!

If they want to make cuts how about cutting out the free welfare cellular phones. This outrages me, I work my butt off and for what? So some lazy ass bum can get a free cell phone! Whoever started this program should be beat. I don't have a problem with feeding the poor but I do have a problem with providing cell phones, a cell phone is not a necessity. I also think that they should drug test people who get foodstamps. The ones on drugs just sell their foodstamp card for drugs anyway. I've been approached at walmart several times by people wanting to pay for my groceries with their foodstamp card for cash. I have always declined & tell them to take their card & buy food for their kids instead of a pill to stick up their nose. These druggies on foodstamps are not spending these funds on food for their kids anyway, they are trading it for drugs. Wasn't that the whole point of going to the card so they couldn't sell them so easily? Yet again the druggies out smarted the government. Maybe we should put them in office. They seem to know every trick in the book.

For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat. II Thessalonians 3:10

And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return. Genesis 3:17-19

Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:31-33

Good grief! The cut is NOT 30%. The cut will amount to about $36 per month for a family of 4 who average $670 to $700 stamps per month now. So what if they can't buy that jumbo bag of chips a week and those 2 frozen pizzas! GET A JOB and feed your kids out of your own damn money! My opinion, they need to cut way more than 36 damn dollars!!!

Listen I get that we all pay taxes and some of those tax dollars are used for public assistance! I just don't get how some of you cold hearted people honestly can be so unkind to another human especially children! Their are all sorts of people who work hard every single day maybe they just make minimum wage which isn't enough to support a family these days. Maybe they are a single parent or a parent of a child who is ill or disabled and their only choices is to do their absolute best and its still not enough to feed their child/children! I pay taxes and have paid tons in taxes since I was working at 16 years old and never have I been so cold hearted to ever be able to justify being inhuman! I know their are druggies out there and probable do sale or do illegal things with their benefits , but the little kids still need to eat even with a drug addicted parent. The world has became so cruel and uncaring for others and its a shame! Have a heart people and stop being so selfish your tax dollars pay for far more than just welfare and food stamps!!

They don't care about cutting some huge corporations benefits, tax breaks, or making them pay taxes or bailing them out.
But starve those poor kids to death!
Damned republicans!
