House Passes Plan To Whack Food Stamps By 20 Percent

… based on an unmitigated lie that the program is experiencing “relentless and unsustainable growth.” Dottie Rosenbaum of CBPP has the details. (Sorry I missed this back when it happened, apparently in early May.) I swear, the GOP bastards would starve their own crippled grandmothers if they weren’t wealthy…

    For an elder senior living in CA on social security without savings, food stamps cover about $16.00—-enough for about five cans of some really fancy cat-food.

      MandT, I am always dumbfounded by the sheer cruelty of the GOP. It is as if they lack the capacity to imagine themselves in someone else’s shoes. Over my lifetime, the typical GOPer’s attitude seems to have mutated from “There but for the grace of God go I” to “Git along little dogies; it’s your misfortune and none of my own.” How do they face themselves in the mirror in the morning? (Maybe they don’t produce a reflection…)
