No jimmy, you stink. Instead of whining about the "evil" Republicans with Nancy "we have to pass it to see whats in it" Pelosi, why dont you consider cutting the $2 billion we sent to Pakistan last year,$1.5 billion to Egypt,$676 million to Jordan, Kenya -$652 million, Nigeria -$625 million, Ethiopia -$580 million, Tanzinia -$531 million? thats nearly $10 billion right there.

How about keeping that money state side and investing it in our crumbling cities and towns instead of feeding war lords across the globe. Ohh thats right, its not for war lords, its for the starving children right? I keep forgetting that when I pass the homeless here in Worcester everyday. According to ol' Jimmy, it more important to bash republicans than actually taking action like feeding our own poor and homeless and instead making sure Cuba's people are properly nourished with our tax dollars. ohh those evil Tea partiers!!!

The Colorado 4:

4 teabagging con representatives that voted against hurricane Sandy aid, now have their grubby little teabagging hands held out for federal aid for the recent flooding.

Teabaggers are doomed by themselves. The rest of us will sit back and just laugh at them.

hahahahahahahahahahaha

BTW, that $40B cut? Yea, its over ten years. Its not like the House is demanding it all be cut tomorrow. Currently $80b is what the SNAP program costs us anually. Asking that $4B a year be cut is hardly "throwing woman, children and minorities out on the street" as the Dems would like you to think. Sad when Democrats have to fall to scare tactics and obvious lies when they cant justify their bloated enititlemtn expenses.

Nobody is against anyone who needs help, getting help. Its the fraud, abuse and generation welfare that Dems refuse to curtail.

besides, if the economy is doing so great as Obama claims,$4B a yr cut in SNAP shouldnt be an issue with all the jobs Obama created right? Ohhh wait....
