In what would be the end of the party if Republicans would even dream of it, Democrat lawmakers are looking at taking $8 billion out of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (Food Stamps program). All this while still sitting on over $300 billion of un-spent so-called stimulus money. But that’s only the half of it. The reason they’re looking at trimming the food stamp program is to fund the first lady’s “Let’s Move” initiative.
So the self-proclaimed champions of the poor, the less fortunate, the working people, who continually whine about Republicans legislating on ‘the backs of’ the working people are seriously considering taking food out of the mouths of the hungry. And this wouldn’t be the first time that the food stamp program was raided to pay for other Democratic programs like supporting labor unions. I guess the hungry need to have some skin in the game too! What?
