    facts, or logical conclusions get in the way of their "food stamps are just a gift to lazy people to buy votes" mentality.

    Its the same with most problems, wingers don't take the long view on anything it's all about the here and now and never you mind tomorrow, unions are killing business today! If unions won, and american business had to pay a living wage, not only would fewer people be on foodstamps, but people everywhere would have more money to spend, and when they do, they will generate demand. Businesses would then hire more workers to keep up with demand, and more Americans would have money to spend and so on and so forth. It makes sense to anyone who takes the time to think about it, it even makes sense for businesses! when people spend more money at their store, they make higher profits!

    the race to the bottom is just so wrong headed on every level.
