House Republicans successfully passed a Farm Bill Thursday by splitting apart funding for food stamps from federal agricultural policy.
Lawmakers voted 216 to 208 make changes to federal agricultural policy and conservation programs and end direct subsidy payments to farmers. But the measure says nothing about funding for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or food stamps, which historically constitutes about 80 percent of the funding in a Farm Bill.
No House Democrat voted for the measure. Thirteen Republicans also opposed it.
the Republicans have again attacked the economy and the foundation of America … but nobody will notice … at least for a year or so.
The key element is simple economics – remove food stamps and money gets diverted from other uses/purchases to buy food. That diversion will, in time, filter through the retail operations undermining the basic economy.
This is a negative stimulus move.
Now? When is the next election year, and how long will it take for this diversion of capital to hit the overall economic structure?
THE MOST HARM TO THE MOST PEOPLE
STARVE THE POOREST END
STARVE THE ELDERLY AND CHILDREN
IT IS, AFTER ALL IS SAID & DONE,
THE REPUBLICAN WAY OF LIFE
BUT THE REPUBLICANS ARE BACKED BY EVANGELICAL CHRISTIANS!
The legislation denies food to the poor and hungry.
The Evangelical Christians either support the Legislation,
or they reject it.
If the reject it, they will scream loudly at the Republicans!
Why is there only silence?
Must be that Christians support starving the poor.
Therefore, American Christians oppose the words of Jesus.
Be a good Christian, hold up the Bible and spit on it!
You're going to fail the judgement, so does it matter?
Follow the example of Pope Benedict XVI:
stop pretending, retire and live off the riches you've amassed.
