The only thing House Republicans voted to cut — and only modestly — is the rate at which food stamp spending will increase during the coming decade. While Democrats wanted to see a 65 percent spike in food stamp funding, the GOP agreed to an increase of 57 percent.
Using sneaky and completely misleading language, Democrat mouthpieces erroneously claim that evil conservatives voted to cut spending by almost $40 billion in the food stamp program. In actuality, that number just represents the difference between what the former, i.e democrats, wanted to spend —$764 billion — and what the latter, i.e. republicans, ultimately agreed to —$725 billion.
They didn't cut food stamp spending. That's a lie. They agreed to spend much more (57 percent more) than we are currently spending on the program over the next decade.
You have no clue what you are talking about.
When all these mouthpieces -- including such as agalert and hoosieragtoday *rolls eyes*-- report on what the House action for SNAP was vis-a-vis the Congressional Budget Office baeeline and what their analysis of H.R. 3102:

http://www.hoosieragtoday.com/cbo-score-of-h-...

The Congressional Budget Office has released the score for the nutrition bill organized by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor. H.R. 3102 – the Nutrition Reform and Work Opportunity Act of 2013 – would cut food stamps and make other changes to federal nutrition programs. According to the CBO – the bill would cut 39-billion dollars from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program over 10 years. The CBO summary projects – under its baseline – that SNAP participation to decline from 48-million people in an average month in fiscal year 20114 to 34-million in 2023. The CBO says the two provisions with the largest budgetary effects would reduce the number of waivers available for certain childless adults who would otherwise be subject to work requirements or time limits and restrict categorical eligibility. A provision that would change benefit levels for program participants would have the third-largest budgetary effects. Because enacting the legislation would affect direct spending – CBO notes pay-as-you-go procedures apply. Enacting the proposed legislation would not affect federal revenues. CBO has not estimated the additional discretionary spending for nutrition programs that would result from implementing the bill – as such spending would be subject to appropriation actions. CBO has also not reviewed the bill for intergovernmental or private-sector mandates.

Cost to the taxpayers: In its May 2013 baseline, CBO projected that spending for SNAP would total $764 billion over the 2014-2023 period. Relative to that baseline, we estimate that enacting H.R. 3102 would reduce direct spending by $39 billion over the 2014-2023 period.

It's not difficult to detect who's shillin' and fraudin'. It ain't the "mouthpieces". You do know what the CBO is, right?

That is very situational. Take UPS for example, spouses of UPS workers can keep their coverage if they can't get insurance from their own employer. If they can get their own coverage UPS is dropping them from their plan without any choice. Barry never said that you might get to keep your plan, he said that you would, he lied, period.

What he meant was evidently 'You can keep your current policy but it will no longer be honored.' You get to keep it in your file cabinet for posterity.

So, evidently penalizing Americans for not signing onto Obamacare and having their exemptions are more important to democrats than funding the V.A.

Yup. It's not about doing the right thing. It's about showing everyone that Obama's the boss.

Shill that is a CBO projection forecast which is a GUESTIMATE of what spending on food stamps MIGHT BE over the 2014-2023 period. When they prepare long term debt analyses and budget forecasts, the CBO tries to guess what spending on various programs MIGHT BE. They don't say what they SHOULD BE, rather what they think Congress will appropriate.

This CBO guestimate is just that ... an educated guess of what we would be spending ... it is not a comparison relative to what we are currently spending. Relative to what we are currently spending on SNAPs, the republicans voted to increase funding by 57%. That’s a fact.

You shills will use anything you can to spin your tale. If you are going to spin, why not go all out and say some guy named Jim predicted we would spend 1 trillion over 2014-2023 on food stamps and relative to this guy’s guestimate baseline, the republicans would reduce spending by 275 billion. That sounds better, doesn’t it … makes it sound like they are cutting 275 billion, instead of just 39 billion.

Obama can send armed guards to surround the WWII monument and protect it from geriatric patriots in wheelchairs, but could not send even one to save Benghazi embassy staff.

At this point , IMO.

They should call a,press,conference on Primetime .
(Equal time)

announce because the debt ceiling is,coming Up

Because the DEMOCRATS will NOT negotiate .

Because the,President IS ONLY GIVING EXEMPTION
to some people INCLUDING THE whiTE HOuSE AND CONGRESS
And staff .

In.order to open the Government ..they will pass the horrible budget that trop Dems are holding over their heads including Obama Care .

BUT BE CLEAR THEY DO THIS UNDER PROTEST ...since Harry Reed will not negotiate ..holding all hostage .

Tell the people To SEE for themselves the results ..which ate being applied unequally ...And it's accordingly next year .

THEY HAVE to say this,as,simply ..SHORT WORDS,SOUND BITES ..as possible ..then.make ads to use .

Mention actual people whose premiums,have gone up ..etc

Then sign it and prepare for a,fight next week .

As it stands now the Dems hAve no reason to budge ..

Creepy
