  1. First off, you Liberals proclaim that the economy has never been stronger. That inflation is low, jobs are roaring back and hero Obama saved us from a depression. If that is true, how do you justify the continuation of an emergency hike in food stamps back in 2009?

    Further, most people who compalin about food stamps don’t live in million dollar homes, drive new cars, or make tons of money. We are working class people who have to buy our own food. While you bemoan about a 5% cut in food stamps, we have to face buying food that is going up 5% every month due to Obama’s money printing. We resent that when we are in line checking out with our chicken thighs that are on sale for 65 cents a pound, knowing that will be dinner for the whole week, you have a basket full of ready made tv dinners, chips, cookies and steak. You can bet I am angry. And many of the people complaining about food stamps don’t have as many kids as you do, because they were responsible and used birth control, knowing they can’t afford kids.

    I don’t care one bit about the children you say are starving. I have seen these kids at Walmart. They are fat and need a diet other than the junk food that is allowed with SNAP. Their parents need to stop exploiting them for free food, rent and earned income credits. And if you are so worried about a 5% cut, then step up and feed these kids. You won’t. Instead, you steal the food from my kids using government force. Disgusting!

  2. 1) I do not make any claims regarding a currently strong economy under Obama. The economy is still weak (except on Wall Street) and that is why we need the 2009 Stimulus’ SNAP program’s hike.

    2) Maybe a percentage of SNAP recipients have made mistakes in life, but that should not justify using hunger as punishment.
