Republicans to the starving: Go die!
Oh, and enjoy your celebration of Our Savior's natal day. Reuters:
The U.S. House of Representatives voted on Friday to cut $700 million from the food stamp program, despite objections from antihunger groups complaining that estimates show some 235,000 people would lose benefits.
Food stamps, the major U.S. antihunger program, help poor people buy food. Some 25.8 million Americans received food stamps in a program run by the U.S. Agriculture Department.
It's a moral hazard, though, isn't it? Republicans are oh-so-concerned with moral hazard--Because they're so very very vulnerable to them! Lying, looting, stealing elections...
But, people, let's be reasonable here. Dollar stores sell pet food, so why do we need food stamps? Yuletide cheer!
