There are over 46 million people nation wide on food stamps. the food stamp program which is in the Agriculture bill passed the Senate and is now held up in the house as the republicans want to make 16.5 billion dollars in cuts from the food stamp programs.

the federal goveremnt SunShine when is Romney going to inform us of his plan to create thsoe 12 million jobs and how he is going to do it. And how is he going to get his way with the chinese on their devaluation of their money and cheating on the trade bills agreement. After alll he still has investments in /baim=n and close ties. so how is he going to get things straif[ghtend out with the chinese without the posi=sibility of him losing value in thsoe negoiations.And his spouting off about the Keystone pipeline which is alreaady being put in in the lower leg and already got a new route in Nebraska around the water aquafier . And I guess he kinds of forgot that the republican governors were complaining about the great possibility of their water supply being ruined if a leaking opipeline spilled into their shallow waater supply whchis only 5 feet below the surface,covering much of the state. But they think the problen is now fixed. Even the farmers and ranchers in Texas are fighting the oil company against their coming on their land

Sun Shine if the people of McCurtain county lost their food stamps WalMart would lose half their business. And Hugo would dry up and blow away. What a dust storm that would be--bigger than the Oklahoms dust Bowl of the 1930s. Boy would you have some mad people and hungry kids. And its one thing a mother will not tolerate is her kids going hungry. One thing I learned as a kid Sun Shine is to aim and thn shoot,never waste a bullet. And I could drop a quail in flight with one shor of my 22,a single shot. started hunting and trapping when i was 6. I et just about every thing that walked on 4 legs and some that crawled, some that swam and some that fly, even had a taste of beaver atime or two. Did you know that beaver is a dangerous animal to rile up. Had one kill my best hunting dog in one bite. Guess they didnot like me killing their kin folks at all.

I can't answer that but I will ask you the same thing of Obama. Can you point me to any plan that Obama has about anything he will do in the next 4 years? How can you hold this against Romney but not question obama's plan?

In November we will have a choice to vote for obama or Romney. We should vote for the one that can do the best job of cutting spending and offering plans that will give assurance to employers. Employers are on hold now because of all of the uncertainty. Conditions will remain as they are until the uncertainty changes which will probably be early November. If obama is re-elected employers will be faced with obamacare and more regulation and they will cut back creating more unemployment and less taxes being paid. Regulations such as requiring the auto industry to meet an unrealistic regulation of all autos getting 25 mpg.

I agree that food retailers would be hurt by people losing their food stamp benefits. What I don't understand is why you are fretting over the possibility of people losing their food stamps. I keep asking you where you got this information and you keep answering with Walmart will lose business. Just tell me where you got the information.

How much of the food stamp money is wasted, yes wasted, on junk food, soda pops, all of the unnecessary food stuffs so many on welfare are buying nowadays?? Why is that people who are unemployed with plenty of time on their hands, with nothing to do but sit around smoking cigarettes (where does the money come for cigarettes, beer, etc., somehow or other people figure out how to pay for this stuff) can't or won't figure out how to cook a nice, healthy, wholesome meal for themselves and the kids? It is not hard to cook a nutritious meal, and believe me, it is a lot cheaper than the junk food and tv dinners people are buying.

If so much of my tax dollars were not wasted on junk food, it could be used elsewhere, like medical, or how about more money for our military, especially those who come home so horribly wounded.

I do not object to people getting help when they need it, but to feel entitled, to believe it is the government's responsibility to feed all those kids,(how many different fathers??) to believe that welfare is necessary to keep companies like Walmart from facing bankruptcy is what is so wrong with our country today.

I worked solid, sometimes with a 2nd and 3rd job, I raised my kids and my grandkids, without welfare, without food stamps, and we had good meals which I prepared on weekends for the following week. Their clothes were always clean, and they were respectful. I do not feel sorry for many of the people who are on welfare nowadays. Especially when there are so many who feel entitled.

It use to be so embarassing to have to use food stamps, not anymore, not to many people.

For those who are truly in need, I am sorry you find yourselves in this type of situation. For those of you who just sit around, smoking cigarettes, drinking pops and beers, making more babies...get off of your butts and get to work. That money is needed elsewhere.

REally, insome residential areas there no grocery stores, but small stores that sell gas and quick foods. Now where else do they buy food at? And another thing is that there are over 62c % of the Mc Curtain county residents on food stamps or somer other kind of aid. That info comes from the OK. DHS and the Census Bureau by the numbers. And there are 567,669 people recieving aid of some kind n Oklahoma. Now if you liek to take the food away from families and children just help yourself. And in Mc Curtain county there are very high counts of people on minimum wages. And you do not recieve food stamps or aid unless they qualify. By the way a lot of people that thought they would be on the recieving end of the food stamp line have droppped from the milddle class into the low wages where the food stamp recipient end up. Just hope you do not join them By the way there are a lot of senion citizens andd disabld people on food stamps also. As for myself I consider myself lucky-- I have a nice incoming income that I myself provided and still pay a tax rate higher than Romney and begrudge no one of getting food stamps to make better for theirselves and their kids. And you could end up on foood stamps.

So really, you made it in life better than others, so did I. All of my family hve homes, paid for --none used goverment help to buy them nor th Fannie mae guaranteed mortgage that lots of people get, even the very wealthy. Raised all of my several of them, and never took a dime in aid from the FEderal goverment. And like you who worked 2 or 3 jobs, I worked 80 hours or more per week for myself. Made a good living, retired at a young age before 55 and no federal IRA. I done it myself. For myself. And used no cheating Wall STreet investment s either.

Yep some peopel are very fortunate to have jobs and an income and enough money to put food on the table. McCurtain county Oklahoma is one of the poorest counties in Oklahoma. Masscushessetts was nealy as bad during Romney's years in office--47 th in jobs creation and lost over 222000 people during his tenure in office. Those people that left the state went hunting for a job.

Those people that left the state went hunting for a job.
According to a campaign ad from President Obama, Mitt Romney had “one of the worst economic records in the country” as governor of Massachusetts from 2003 through 2006. But when you dig into the facts, you discover that the ad paints a highly distorted picture of the actual Romney record.

The ad says that Massachusetts “fell to 47th (among the 50 states) in job creation” over the course of the Romney administration. This claim is misleading because, first, it relies on data that has been picked to show the worst possible result, and, second, because it rests on an unrealistic standard for measuring job creation at the state level.

The low ranking that the ad gives to Massachusetts under Romney relies on the US Bureau of Labor Statistics survey of business establishments, which omits self-employed workers. In year-to-year data published by that survey, Massachusetts lost 14,000 jobs over the course of the Romney administration. However, in the BLS survey of households, which includes self-employed workers, there were 57,000 more state residents holding jobs at the end of 2006 than at the end of 2002. This simple recalculation raises the state to 32nd in job creation.

Even that number gives an overly dim view of the Romney record. The capacity of a state to create jobs is limited by the number of residents who are available to take those jobs. Texas ranked third in job creation over the Romney years but had 3.5 times as many working-age residents as Massachusetts.

What matters is that by the end of 2006, Massachusetts employed a larger fraction of its working-age population than did 32 other states, including Texas. This reflects the fact that the Massachusetts unemployment rate fell steadily even as the working-age population rose when Romney was governor.

The Obama ad further says that “when Mitt Romney was governor, Massachusetts lost 40,000 manufacturing jobs.” What it doesn’t say is that Romney inherited a depressed economy when he took office in much the same fashion as President Obama did (and as he constantly reminds us).

Massachusetts had already lost 40,000 manufacturing jobs during the year before Romney took office, and it was only after he took office that the loss of manufacturing jobs sharply tapered off. And despite the loss of manufacturing jobs that did occur, the growth of Massachusetts manufacturing output over the Romney administration exceeded that for the United States as a whole.

Pappy, please read all of post #12. I continue to be amazed at how the liberal media takes a grain of positive truth and turns it into something negative. It is true that unemployment "FELL to 47th in the nation" under Romney as governor. But that was a good thing. It was 50th when he took office so it indeed fell. It did not rise. Read where the numbers came from to arrive at 47th and that those numbers omits the self-employed. If you count the self-employed, Masscushessetts was 32nd. We need turthful information to make informed decisions.

What you say does not justify the waste of food stmap money on junk food, soda pops, and whatever else it is traded for. As I have said repeatedly, I am sorry for those who are truly in need, but when I see healthy young adults wasting my tax monies and not having the good sense to appreicate the fact that they do not work for this money, it makes me furious.

You want to blame certain entities for our problems, how about taking it to the level where it belongs, beginning with individuals being responsible.

And if people can't afford to feed the kids they have, then they do not need to have more kids they can't feed.

Go ahead and help these individuals justify their waste, but it is my tax payer monies being thrown down the drain...

SunRise, you should be doing a lot more fact checking other thn that 36 percent item you used. how did you like the speech on the food stam recilients by Romney and what he thinks of our loer paid people. Some of those people just happen to be our military members Romney just dumped on. Agreat many of them who have family are on food stamps cause of the low. Then he is also talking about the senior citizen that are on food stamps and gets housing help in paying heir rent or medicaid recipients on medicare that are in a nursing home. This video shows the true face of Romney and the working peopele of thsi nation. And Romney is the manthat wants to be president who shipped american JOBS TO CHINA. nOW E KNOW JUST HOW rOMNEY WILL TRULY what he thinks of those he considers to be beneath him.

I believe in cutting food stamps. It is a waist of tax payers money. The elderly gets very litttle in foods stamps. They need to go back to commodities and learn how to cook. People have learned how to work the system and don't say they haven't. I see this every day. I also know they sell their groceries to get their cigs and etc. I have always worked to get what I need and was taught this. I know families that have been supported on welfare for several generations. If I can work and go to college so can some of these people that don't try. Trust me I was not born rich and my parents never knew what welfare was. We also worked and raised what we ate.

SunShine, the self employedare not elgible for unemployeement, so do not get counted. And I did not say a word about the fees he started charging --like $25.00 for fees to get listed on the state rolls as blind, or he fees that soemone has to pay to be certified mentally ill, and the other ees charges that were raised. But that 16.5 billion in cuts to the food stamp program is fact in what the republicans are trying to do to the elderly, the disabled, chilldren and others who use the food stamp program. Wonder how thsoe elderly are going to make it on their puny socail security checks they worked for all their life, and just thing George Bush and P.Ryan wanted to invest their mone yin the wall street stock market. Wonder what would have happened if Bush and Ryan had succeeded ,how much woul have remained of the Society Fund for the people?

OKLAHOMABORN, READ THIS BIT OF INFO ON FOOD STAMPS (SNAP)PROGRAM. The following is the reasons that there will be no changes in what a food stamp recipient can buy--MONEY AND LOBBYIST. SOMEof the biggest banks in the country are making a killing off the administration of the SNAP PROGRAM. J.P. MORGAN HAS A CONTRACT IN 24 STATESTO ADMISTER snap. In New York, J.p. Morgan is paid 112 million for EBT services and justgot a increase of over 14 milion dollars In california a service provider for SNAP is being paid $69 million and the list goes on and on. A few Wal Mart stores in in one state recieved more than 33 million dolllars from SNAP program. one big area of profit comes from the junk foood products such as candy,sodas,and chips. theose inustries make such huge sales on these items that they have a large lobbying group in these industries to head off any changes to put limits on these items of junk food. the snack foods industry are well organized against any changes to be made against their industry in the snack foods area of. Big Business will always be there to protect their sales and profits. One thing you might notice is the space on the shelves that goes to a certain industry, like chips and different type candies and can goods. That shelf space is usually bought and paid for by the different industries using that shelf space and it is one way the store makes a killing on their shelf space besides the items sold from that space. If an industry does not buy space they do not sale much of their product nor make a better profit. Thats the way of big business. READ IT AND WEEP. ITS YOUR TAX DOLLLARS AT WORKDO YOU HAVE ENOUGH MONEY TO HIRE YOUR SELF A NICE LOBBYIST TO REPRESENT YOU??
