House Cuts Food-Stamp Funds From Farm Bill

Jul 12, 2013 Full story: Wall Street Journal 93

A sharply divided House approved a bill Thursday that would set farm policy for the next five years, using a strategy that pleased conservative Republicans, angered Democrats and left the future of farm programs and food stamps in doubt.

It is so funny to see "libtards" pondering "thoughts" First off, if you were "responsible" you would not have children you cannot afford. Second, it would set a good example to your children to WORK HARD and earn well.. Because there is going to come a time.. in short order.. where you may not be getting the "charity": you feel entitled to. Fact is, if your a total failure and cannot even support your family, than we really have no need for you here in the USA. Get off your ass and WORK FOR IT..

I'll be dropping the kids off at your house @5:30AM.
Ones allergic to peanuts, the other everything else.
They get sick, I sue you and get your house.
Oh, the boss-man says I have to work a double or it's my azz

So I'll pick them up around 10:30PM, K?
Thanks, you're a peach!! ;)

If you can't afford to feed your kids, maybe you shouldn't have had them in the first place.
Taxpayers should not foot the bill for your stupidity or the poor choices you made in your own life.
So you are saying if you don't have enough money to raise your children and support your family even if you get laid off and can't get another job, only the rich should be allowed to have children. That means you think only the very very rich should have children. The poor and middle class, according to you should not have children. Even those who paid tons of taxes before, and lose their jobs because the government subsidized the shipping of those jobs to China, should not receive any help from a government they supported for a long time.

And those who get sick, and can no longer, are just stupid, apparently according to you. They made stupid choices allowing themselves to get sick and not being rich enough.

So, according to you, how many millions should a person have to have in the bank before they can have children???

All I hear is how children of've low income families are going hungry. I can't believe a country that has so much can let this happen. But then I stand behind parents,who are usually overweight,with their shopping carts full of cokes, potato chips, candy, process food. I see the cart is lacking, meats, fresh fruit, veggies, and dairy product. Then I see them take out their snap card to pay for their junk food. Then I see them put their junk food in their nice fancy new car...Then I think, how dare you big fat lazy slob take my hard earn tax dollars to feed your fat lazy ass junk food I can't afford. Then you have the nerve to cry your kids are going hungry. Give my a break....I think that food stamps aka snapcards should only be used for healthy foods. Nothing else....

Just spouting BS
Or are you really that dumb?
(Rhetorical question, cupcake;))
On Friday, March 30, CapitolBeatOK reported the four-year graduation rate at the University of Oklahoma is 35.7 percent, according to OU-generated data. A March 13 advertisement that ran in four state newspapers had placed the graduation rate at 67.8 percent, touting it as “the highest graduation rate in state history.”
The higher figure, however, is a six-year graduation rate. The full text of the OU advertisement was provided in the March 30 story.
OU describes itself as ‘a four-year public university.’ When the man on the street hears ‘graduation rate,’ in his mind he’s thinking four years. Indeed, many people will doubtless be surprised to learn that there even is such a thing as a ‘six-year graduation rate.’
And a source of course.

I agree get rid of the crap and fraud. But to say lets just cut that means ones who need it get hurt,. Also that 200 billion is way off...That is more then the whole budget for welfare and food stamps...Now want to make cuts and get rid of fraud and crap lets look at the military ....WHEW there is some waste.
Dang, you're a little uninformed.

Means tested welfare, which includes cash, foodstamps, housing, medical care, social services, targeted training and education programs, preschool programs...a total of 80 programs altogether, cost the Federal government $717 billion in 2011. States kicked in $201 billion and independent state programs kicked in another $9 billion,...

For a grand total of $947 billion.

Costs for 2012 came in just under $1 trillion.

The government has been spending twice as much on means tested welfare programs than they have been on defense spending for over twenty years straight.

Clearly, you have a computer. Please use it as a learning tool and look this stuff up for yourself.

Yea the rich sure are TRAITORS....
You're a hoot.

Traitors? Got any harsh words for the government, like the idiots that mandated all light bulbs are flourecent light bulbs by 2014 while letting the EPA run wild? They can't manufacture those here...there's mercury in them thar bulbs. To keep up with all the regulations imposed on, say...GE (General Electric) to produce those bulbs, they'd end up costing $30 a piece. So, with our governments blessing, GE closed plants here and went to China.

Auto makers are up against the same thing. Insane regulations and employees who make $19 an hour, get Cadillac benefits packages, pensions and early retirements, and spend their lunch hours out in the parking lot, drinking and smoking weed. And they don't (can't) be fired. They lose $$$ on every car that rolls off the line.

Employees who are lucky enough to land a position in the automated plants do even better.$29 an hour...to do absolutely nothing all day long. But union regs require 5 employees and 1 supervisor per automated line...even though those robotic lines run flawlessly. I know a man who was lucky enough to land this job for his final years at GM in Michigan...it pushed his pension up considerably. He retired at 55 and now lives in a private, gated lake front community. His retirement home cost over $650,000, where he lives with his wife, who also took early retirement from GM.

Do you wonder why these companies are going overseas or to Canada?

Your angst and anger are caused by all the things you seem to have zero understanding of.

"The rich" you keep bleating about are a tiny percentage of all U.S. employers and most that went abroad did/do so with the governments sticky fingers in their pockets, along with their blessing. Others can no longer operate here due to the highest corporate taxes in the world and the strangling regulations. And yes, some went purely to put more dividends in their own pocket.

Please get a clue.

It's all hype from the Democrats.

Food stamps are funded from another source so there will be no change.
