Not really. It is evolving. Hope it is not too late to save America from the Socialists. It is America falling apart, not true Republicans. In most of our lifetimes, America will turn into a third-world banana republic. The great experiment in self governance required self-control, morality, hard work and faith. All of this is nearly gone. Just the facts, so sorry.
Let's see, the farm bill,
The Senate passed its version of a longer term farm bill earlier this month on a bipartisan vote of 66 to 27. The measure calls for spending $24 billion less than current law by ending programs such as a $5 billion direct cash subsidy program for absentee farmers. The House plan would have resulted in nearly $40 billion in savings, in large part by slashing the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, widely known as food stamps.
House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) predicted as recently as Tuesday that his farm bill, drafted by Agriculture Committee Chairman Frank D. Lucas (R-Okla.) over the past two years, would “pass with a broad bipartisan majority.”
Instead, by the time the gavel fell, Lucas was left in the middle of the floor collecting condolences from lawmakers on both sides of the aisle. There is no clear plan for what will happen next, as the Sept. 30 deadline for the expiration of the current stopgap farm bill approaches.
“It’s just disappointing that we have seen now the Democrats putting partisanship over progress,” Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) told reporters as he left the House floor after the vote.
So, tell me liberals, when do you stop handing out food stamps and who pays for it? What is the incentive for people to get off of food stamps? How do you measure it?
This is like throwing $40 BILLION out the car window. Sooner or later, this program has to wine down.
do you even understand food stamps. no. do you know how many military people are on food stamps. no. did you know that food stamps started increasing under bush and then after he left us in a depression they exploded. do you know how much food stamps really cost as the money makes its way right back into the economy. you don't. do you have a high school education. no.
