The House has voted to cut food stamps by $2 billion a year.

The chamber rejected 234-188 a Democratic amendment to a wide-ranging farm bill that would have maintained current spending on food stamps and cut farm subsidies instead. The bill cuts the $80 billion-a-year program by about 3 percent and makes it harder for some people to qualify.

Opinions?

Cut $2 Billion? WTF.

Should have been a red flag the second it reached $2 Billion.

What no more high dollar steaks and alcohol?

They should have gotten together on a bill that eliminates food stamps AND farm subsidies.

But that would make to much sense.

"If I can't buy lobster with my food stamps I will sue, that is discrimination."

Watch, it will happen.

Have mercy! How will the other half of the dead people manage to get thru the month? 3% takes care of some of the fraud, families still collecting benefits for grammy gone for months, if they even try to catch them.

I'm all for sharing charity with my fellow man in need. But this is what? the third generation of perfectly healthy people we are paying to sit at home and do nothing but make more unloved babies out of wedlock and mess with drugs.

Fuck, I hope so.

That's the only way I can think of to cut down on some of the trash.

The Demwits aren't about to allow anyone to put a stop to vote buying.

are the number of people on food stamps up because the requirements have been relaxed or because more people qualify because of the economy?
Link Posted: 6/19/2013 6:05:59 PM EDT
I used to work with a lady on food stamps. Bought new shoes and purses all the time. Yeah most people don't deserve it.

Not enough. I am sick of seeing people walk up to the counter with luxury gourmet ice creams, whip out the EBT, and then go and get into a new Escalade.

60-100 million to visit his african marxist mentor Nelson Mandela. Val Jarret, jerimiah wright, bill ayers and vann jones are celebrating Mandela too.

Obviously Romney and Ryan's pledge to cut their foodstamps, obamacaid, abortion funding, npr, big bird etc sent the VOCAL obamabot internet flash mob FSA into OUTRAGE.

No wonder they spammed the internet against the NRA endorsed ticket. They got what they wanted. 4 more years of their kenyan marxist, Val Jarret, Eric Holder, Brady bunch, WH enemies lists... and foodstamps

Yeah, the bill would require that they check pulses.

How much would it cost to provide rice and beans to everyone currently on food stamps? I'll wager it's less than $80 billion a year.

Yep. They will all just have to switch to EBT cards now. And resell Obamaphones to make their drug money. No more free ride wih food stamps.
