      Unbelievable

      Stop the party of Gut & Spend policies that gut our Earned Benefits programs like Social Security and Medicare and spends on tax breaks for the wealthy elite.

      Senate denies additional GOP cuts to farm billBrian Francisco | Washington editor

      The U.S. Senate rejected farm-bill amendments Tuesday to further cut the food-stamp program.

      The Democratic majority voted down Republican proposals to limit eligibility for food-stamp recipients and halt federal bonus payments to states for administering the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.

      Republican Sens. Dan Coats and Richard Lugar of Indiana voted for the two amendments, which were sponsored by Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala.

      The bill to reauthorize agriculture and nutrition programs for the next five years already contains $4.3 billion in reductions to food stamps.

      The Senate voted 66-33 against an amendment to restore the proposed cuts.

      “It’s beneath this body to cut food assistance for those who are struggling the most among us,” said sponsor Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y.

      If that many Dems voted FOR the Amendment it would have passed, which it didn't. Are you sure that list is for the SNAP Amendment and not another one they voted on today?

      Stop the party of Gut & Spend policies that gut our Earned Benefits programs like Social Security and Medicare and spends on tax breaks for the wealthy elite.
