Food Stamp Vote Exposes Republicans for the Soulless, Selfish Jerks That They Are 


Nothing quite brings the Republican Party and its vision for America into focus as sharply as the fight over Food Stamps. Suffice it to say, it’s not a pretty picture.

GOP House members voted last week to cut $40 billion out of the country’s primary food security program over the next 10 years. The cuts would knock an estimated 3.8 million Americans off Food Stamps, now known as the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program, or SNAP. Coincidentally, that number is just slightly less than the 4 million people that the program kept from slipping below the official poverty line last year. Maybe the GOP loves the poor after all. Republicans seem to be doing their damnedest to make sure there are more and more of them...
