It seems that all politicians love welfare.

After all, when you get that deposit into your EBT card account each month, you can't help but thank your legislator for providing you with your monthly government stipend, can you?

Enjoy your government cheese.

House rejects farm bill, 62 Republicans vote no

WASHINGTON—The House has rejected a five year, half-trillion-dollar farm bill that would have cut $2 billion annually from food stamps and let states impose broad new work requirements on those who receive them.
The vote was 234-195 against the bill. Sixty-two Republicans voted no, while 24 Democrats voted in favor of the bill.

Members of both parties had signaled opposition to the food stamp cuts in the bill.

Many Republicans say the cuts are not enough; the food stamp program has doubled in cost over the last five years to almost $80 billion a year and now helps to feed 1 in 7 Americans.

Liberals oppose any reductions in food stamps, contending that the House plan could remove as many as 2 million needy recipients from the rolls.

Boner and the HOUSE can't pass a damn thing and they know it because McConnell don't have enough baggers in the senate to pass a bill that this loser house passes the baggers are puff and smoke and the baggers are the real welfare moochers and even if they did scrap some votes President Obama could always veto them.

Instead of commenting in a rational and intelligent manner, the Fake Black Guy babbles again. Good one, Fake Black Guy.

We need some tough love and even tougher work requirements. Too many on this program are free loaders and need to either start working or starve!
Once upon a time there was CCC, if they don't want to work for the private sector they can work for the Government. Many good things were created by the CCC, do it again.

It was meant to provide landlines for emergency services (say you lived in Alaska in a village... Well this gave you a LANDLINE PHONE TO CALL 911) in 2012 the program exploded and now provides unlimited free cell phones with 250 minutes/unlimited texts a month.....
