.Who has fought against Obama's efforts to pass a jobs bill to create more jobs so fewer kids would have to hungry?
It may come as a surprise to you, but Obama is not really The Messiah, can't create food by magic, and needs the cooperation of Congress to feed those hungry mouths.
The House has passed jobs bills but HARRY REID won't bring it to the floor. HARRY REID has stopped more bills in the Senate. HARRY REID is the problem. Obama WANTS everybody depended on the government and with YOUR help, it will happen. Sorry I cannot say thank you for this mess YOUR president has gotten us into.

Have you studied the House, ahem, "jobs" bills? I don't think so.

Feed the wealthy and starve the needy. What a great country this is!
The problem is we are feeding the needy, but not our own needy. I have no issue with helping our own needy but we are feeding millions of illegal alien needy people who have come over here, and now we are seeing how it's hurting our Country and our own American citizens. I asked my husband years ago how long as a country can we afford to keep taking in and supporting illegals before it effects us? Well we have our answer now cause it's hurting us seriously. That and the huge debt of Obama's with the expense of Obamacare now added to it! He's taking our Country down fast in my opinion.

Please tell me how "illegals" are affecting us.

In addition, I define "our own needy" as the world's human beings.

Thankfully, Pres Obama and the Congressional Democrats have resisted ALL attempts to limit Food Stamp Assistance to HEALTHY FOODS.

Obama believes that hard working American Tax Slaves should be forced to pay for a potatoe chip and soft drink diet for poor people and their children. It's a Progressive thing!

Calling Out Harry Reid
[Harry Reid Flipping Off the GOP - image]

It's really easy for Harry Reid to make the Republicans look bad. They produce bills that Harry Reid tables and they never get to the floor for debate or vote. Are you aware that Harry Reid has tabled 2, 748 bills set forth by Republicans? The Democrats can sit there and say that all the Republicans do is complain and do nothing. It's hard to show what accomplishment when you are bills presented die upon arrival. It's even harder to try and fight the American people when the Bill comes to the floor and gets immediate cloture. That in essence kills everything, there is no discussion, no opportunities to amended to be better, just pass it and if you don't we blame you.

...

I don't know about you guys, but I have come to the conclusion that Harry Reid is suffering from a case of the full of shitness. He invokes Cloture, tables bills, Hey Harry, who is the real obstructionist here?

These phony stories, rhetoric, attacks, and all the like need to come to an end. This bill S 2343 could be a good start getting Congress to move in a positive direction. They don't need to tackle big legislations, no reason to make big moves, no reason to add ridiculous amendments that either side knows will kill the bill. Take the issue of student interest rates, and student interest rates alone and just deal with that, no appropriations, no earmarks, no taxes, nothing. Take small steps, at this point that is the best way for progress. Remember what they say when the question is asked “how was Rome built? Brick by brick my friends, brick by brick.

>>What’s largely missing from the coverage [of food stamp cuts] is why cuts happened in the first place.

Heartless conservative politicians are not responsible for sending kids to bed hungry. The expiration of this expanded spending was embedded in the infamous stimulus bill that was rammed through Congress by Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi in 2009 at the behest of President Obama. Stimulus spending provided for only a temporary increase. After all, people were only supposed to need more SNAP money until the economy recovered. Surely, they figured, the economy would rebound in four-and-a-half years.

But that was before things like Obamacare and the administration’s war on fossil fuels.

Back in 2009, out of the $847 billion stimulus bill, only $45 billion went to feed hungry children. The rest went, supposedly, to stimulate economic growth.

Therein lies the problem.

It is difficult to make the claim that stimulus spending actually worked as intended — creating jobs and growing the economy — while also lamenting that people who should now be self-sufficient still need to be fed through government entitlements. At some point, it can’t be denied the original program failed. Obama himself joked back in 2011 that “Shovel-ready was not as, uh … shovel-ready as we expected.”

Thanks Bush and Obama -for selling out the U.S. equally.
This shit started during the Reagan years. He cut taxes for his rich buddies, never cut spending a dime then he and Bush41 borrowed $3 trillion from foreign banks to cover the shortfall. They quadrupled the national debt, Clinton left a surplus, then Bush43 cut taxes twice, began to borrow from China for the first time in the nation's history, started two unfunded wars, one totally unnecessary and doubled the national debt again.

What used to be the middle class in this country doesn't exist. The median income has remained flat ever since all this started while the top 1% have nearly tripled their income. What a wonderful country.....if you happen to be one of the Lords and not a Serf.

Maybe if you seek out and eliminate the 9 million plus illegals, lazy slobs, perpetual baby makers, cons, and other all around blood sucking leeches out there robbing the system, this won't have to happen to genuinely deserving people. Just a thought!

I guess you mean something...I just can't figure out what it is. This shit is so bad that even when Bush cut taxes twice for the richest people in the country that he put in a provision in the law which declared that the tax cuts would expire in 2011. Guess what... the goddam T Party Republicans negotiated until they finally stopped that. You obviously don't catch on. Take a close look at this charted representation of what has happened in this country since Ronald Reagan and his union buster ideas took over:

Illegals living in this country will STILL get food stamps.. long after the Americans who need it will.. They have more rights than we do. What they need to do is kick all these young, able bodied people off welfare...and stop rewarding women who have no control over their hormones by giving them extra money everytime they breed. All these "bi-polar_ people who want to act crazy..and suck of the social security system..(and the food stamp system) need to be cut cold turkey and take their bi-plar asses back to work

That's what happens when you just give people stuff without them having to earn it.

EACTLY! and far too many Americans have a "welfare mentality". which makes them believe that they are entitled to something. The ONLY thing owed to you is what you get up off your ass and go work for..anything else is a gift.
