The poor have it too easy. Time to make them REALLY suffer.

They wont be happy until prisons are full to the rim with poor people that were out stealing and robbing to feed their families.

Anyway, It's always been my opinion that welfare is, dollar for dollar, the best money ever spent on law enforcement in the history of law enforcement.

I'd put it 2nd behind mental health care, but since we don't spend money on that anymore...

You know that phrase, "Throw shiat against the wall and hope something sticks?" Watching the GOP-controlled House vote on these bills is like watching a retarded kid throw his shiat up in the air and then cry when it lands on his head instead of the wall.

Let's be very clear: The Boehner CR would provide even less funding than the extreme Paul Ryan Budget of just two years ago.

My mom knows a guy whose sister's best friend saw a woman buy crab legs with food stamps, therefore everyone on SNAP is a fraud.

Of all government spending to cut, they pick this?   Tell you what cut congressional pensions, that should save $40 billion.

Why are we worried about the House passing a bill that is completely asinine and evil?
It's still got to be approved by the Senate and signed by the President.

Is there a chance in hell of that happening?

As much as I don't want something like this to pass, because this will screw many people that actually need SNAP to get by, there's a part of me that wants them to succeed, just to confuse the people that need government subsidies but think that the government should stop giving handouts.

Reduce food assistance to the poor by $40 billion.  Completely defund Obamacare.

And this will produce jobs in what way, precisely?  I mean, other than in the funeral industry.

I'm more disgusted than anything. It's shameful that such a bill is even being considered, whether or not it has a chance to pass.

I promise you this- if people don't have food or water, they will stop being civil in an effort to survive. You get enough people in this situation and you have riots. You get enough riots and you have a lot of people from all classes who won't be alive.

We *buy* peace in this country. Through welfare. Through food stamps. Through foreign policy. Through subsidies. That is all we are really doing. We are ensuring we can continue to prosper.

People without basic needs met are really just animals.

It's a basic crisis of legitimacy that is the fundamental flaw of all presidential systems. Both the Democrats and Republicans have competing claims of legitimacy to steer the path of the federal government. It's a serious flaw in the presidential system.

You are absolutely correct. This is obviously evil lib science though so will be ignored by our resident right wing farktards (where are they all today btw).

I really don't see Reid even bringing this to the Senate floor. Much less President Obama actually signing it. Its another one of those exercises in waste and grift that House Republicans do to attempt to justify their salaries without actually doing anything in any way.

The government should stop giving away handouts to people.

You know that old saying: "Give a man a fish, he'll eat fo a day. Teach a man to fish, and he'll hang out on the boat all day with his buddies drinking beer and telling stories and he'll come home drunk and sunburned".

Even the resident right wingers have a hard time coming up with anything when the week has been full of reports about the top 1% having the highest percentage of wealth ever, the top 400 billionaires adding 300 billion to their net worth in one year, and the stock market racing to new highs.

Tough to say "the poor are destroying the economy" without flogging yourself.

1 out of every 7 people in this country are getting some form of SNAP assistance. Make of that number what you will.

monoski: 1 out of every 7 people in this country are getting some form of SNAP assistance. Make of that number what you will.


It means we need to raise the minimum wage because most of those people are "working poor." If you work in this country you ought to be able to afford to eat.
 
2013-09-19 04:11:53 PM
I really don't know what to predict for the vote on this bill. I'm sure every single D will vote against it. 17 or more defections from the GOP would defeat the bill. I'd have to think at least that many will defect under normal circumstances, but today...I just don't know.

They shoot around 4, so it'll be Monday. I wonder if they scheduled the vote just to delay coverage on Daily.

And again, I'm amazed at how farking evil Republicans are. Democrats are no prize. They're a disappointing, weak, often corrupt mess. But Republicans are being genuinely evil.

The beatings will continue until morale and productivity improve.

Hunger and insecurity are great motivators. As long as you're not too concerned about what exactly they will motivate people to do.

When Eric Cantor's picture is taped to punching bags at a gym, punching accuracy/power of all boxers improved by at least 30%.

It's a fact.
