"Owning" a thread by smokescreen is not "owning" a thread at all, even with your non-expert "expert" buddy -- no follow-up yet by that hilarious claim that was made this past weekend.<quoted text>
He is nothing but a democrat shill.
The guy lost ANY AND ALL credibility when he wrote that the republican Congress voted to cut food stamp funding by 40 billion in that article. That is a complete lie. The guy should have his media credentials revoked and should just make it official and go on the DNC's payroll.
The republican house voted to increase funding by 56%::
I'm amazed that even folks who are democrats are just so accepting when they are lied to by the media and the powers that be in the democrat party. If you had any ability to think for yourselves, you would be outraged that you are fed propaganda and outright lies by the media and powers that be in the democrat party. If you had any ability to think for yourselves, you would want to be told the truth about the food stamp funding legislation passed in the house and would want to form your own opinion about it, without being lied to.
Nope, not folks like you ... you are quite happy to be lied to, just so long as it reinforces your views.
The shill and frauds aren't guys/gals that write the news about the actions a Congress. On or about 9/19/2013, the House voted to slash over a 10 year period:
Both the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives are expected to name members of a farm bill conference committee, now that the House has completed its farm bill package. The House approved a three-year nutrition bill last week on a partisan, 217-210 vote. The legislation by Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., would cut $39 billion during 10 years from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or food stamps.
"The road to the 2013 farm bill is not without a few major stumbling blocks along the way and potentially catastrophic caverns into which the bill could fall," said agricultural economist Vince Smith of Montana State University, author of many articles on the farm bill.
Smith said a two-year extension of current law is the most likely outcome. Others say anything from legislative success to a complete stymie is possible. "It's a pretty stalemated situation," said Otto Doering, professor of agricultural economics at Purdue University.
The overarching issue: food stamps for the poor, accounting for three-fourths of outlays forecast for $500 billion over five years. The Senate voted to pare food stamp spending by $4.5 billion over a decade through closure of a loophole on utility costs.
But the House, in a party-line vote, called for food stamp cuts of $40 billion through tighter eligibility rules that end benefits for 10 percent of recipients in 2014. The rules would shorten the number of weeks that some people could get food stamps and eliminate a 1996 welfare-reform provision that allows benefits to people with slightly higher income or assets.
Overall, the Senate bill would spend $23 billion less over a decade than the current law would were it to stay in place. The House would cut $55 billion.
You're only pissing on other Republicans and those who don't know which way the wind is blowing,... and those who can't figure it out and rely on the hogshit of these fractious right wingnuts.
