No mention of teabaggers cutting subsidies for multi-national corporate agri-business.
Just a lifeline in some cases for Americans.
"Some Republicans would cut food stamps by more than $100 billion over 10 years and tighten eligibility rules".
So....teabaggers are going to cut off the associates that work at Walmart?

How much is the bill cutting from agribusiness subsidies? How much are Republicans cutting from subsidies to Big Energy or the military industrial complex?
No way poor people get cut first. To hell with that. Keep tossing the bill back into their faces until they accept that.
