If your wife is REALLY concerned about nutrition, then mandate (and you DO have the power) that food stamps can onlly be used to purchase unprocessed food. Welfare folks can cook wholesome meals and learn a work ethic and a sense of accomplishment. Or are they truly lazy or are many getting a handout to supplement their regular income for vacations and cars?
It is a shame what is happening to this country. It started with Barney Frank's "house for everyone" to create the financial crisis. Bush's biggest mistake - TARP. Obama continuing the Bush mistakes and doubling down, spending like mad. It is truly sad what our kids, and us, will be left with. My crystal ball says buy things - Real things like property that has intrinsic value. Money and stocks will soon be worthless!! Just watch.

This is not my first time here, nor will it be my last. (Applause.) I am here today because we are taking action to bring many thousands of Americans closer to owning a home.
