Critics say the Trump administration is trying to return to its pre-Covid mission of shrinking safety net programs.

Well no shiat. Haven't you heard? COVID is over. The corner has been rounded. It's morning in America again. Back to farking over the poor, who should really just buy some money.

It's kind of amazing how much actual GOP policy is 180 degrees from what they campaign on.  All I hear about Cornyn is his dedication to bipartisanship and pre-existing conditions.  Then we get shiat like this.

Why wouldn't he fight this in court? He owns the SCOTUS now. That banana republic, theocratic court is the law of the land now. Get used to it, second class citizens. Unless you are a white, heterosexual male you are now the scum of the earth in this country.

Surprised Stephen Miller isn't pushing to give people food stamps, most places don't accept them online, so they're forced into the grocery store.

Same with Matt Schlapp of CPAC and Abbott Labs.

It's like they've given up genocidal ruses and genocidal pandemic grifting for Trump's openly hateful genocide.

Well, clearly trump is trying to get on the proper side of his christian worshipers.  I guess christians take the words Jesus to heart.  When Jesus said that there will always being people who are starving, christians take it upon themselves to make sure that happens.

With all of the sheer evil shiat this administration is pulling, it makes me believe even stronger now that the fix is in.  Not just with Barrertt being elevated to the SCOTUS, but with the counting of the votes and probable vote changing that will be carried out by the Republicans.

They will go balls to the wall to make sure they hold onto power, and find some way to drive the Democrats completely from power.  hell, at this point, I almost expect them to declare the Democratic party illegal and all elected Democratic officials be removed from their positions immediately.

I would never have gone so far as to even suggest something that completely off the rails crazy, but then again, I never expected the Republicans to have gone full blown fascist.

I'm pretty sure this is exactly what Jesus would do.  Isn't this what he said when he confiscated the fish and bread from a crowd of four or five thousand that gathered to listen to him without paying him?

"I have no compassion for these people; they have already been with me three days and already I have given them much to eat. I want to send them away hungry, so they may collapse on the way."

The law says the emergency payment can't be higher than existing maximum benefit levels for SNAP, thresholds that are set by the size and income level of a household. USDA has taken this to mean that households already receiving the maximum benefit level each month before the pandemic - because they have little to no household income - are not eligible for any emergency payments.

The 'emergency payments' can't be higher. That has nothing to do with how much the emergency payments plus the usual payments total when combined. If that was the intent it would say "Use emergency payments to max out everyone's benefits". They are 'interpreting' it that was on purpose. THEIR intent is to deny people food.

They don't care if people die of starvation or disease. To the Republicans, the poor are something to be used and abused.

Yea, the GOP knows they can't win if they don't cheat. As that becomes, most clear, they become more brazen. After the election, look for Trump to de-legitimize the result and then start a big distraction to stay in power. I've always scoffed when people said that about W. and Barry, but this farker is laying the ground work for it. Fascism is here right now and the administration moves so fast and so chaotically that they can't be stopped.

The left thinks they can win because they have so much momentum. They can't. That option was removed by the Republicans over that last 50 years. The Dems still think they are playing democracy. The Republicans gave that up a long time ago and gave into Russian gangster statism. The KGB took Russia back and then took on the west. They've successfully gotten the UK to part ways with Europe and they've successfully ignited race wars in this country.

Trump is follow closely in Hitler's footsteps. I think that was one book he, at least, skimmed through. Now that the courts are packed to a tipping point, you can expect some pretty big changes going forward. With the help of the right wing media, they'll drum up support to outlaw other parties and pass an enabling law that allows Trump to make laws without the House and Senate.

Trump won't bother with death camps. He doesn't need to. He'll starve blue states and cut off aid to any minority group and let the virus run wild to thin their numbers.

I know all that sounds insane. I know that. But look around... Every crackpot thing I've written is being put in place right now.

That feeling, 4 years ago, when you realized Trump had one... well, get ready. He's going to "win" again and they're isn't anyone on the planet that's going to stop him.

It's too bad that there is no way to ask the author of the law what they meant when they wrote it.  No way at all.  Can't be done.

Seriously - I know that's not how things work, but I wonder if a system could be implemented to make it work.  If an interpretation of the law is in dispute, and the authors are still alive/in office, ask them.  Give Congress 30 days or whatever to pass a new/amended law if they need to refine something, but otherwise the author's interpretation legally stands.

/Yes, obvious loopholes in that, but working them out is probably better than leaving the courts to guess on what the author meant

I'm fairly well off and I take a mortgage interest deduction and a home equity line of credit deduction and a lower corporate tax rate and pre-tax business expenses and income property depreciation, etc, etc, etc.
