    Right now the big press push is that the poverty stricken soldiers are going to lose the subsidies grocery stores.  Of course there is no mention about the cuts that are going to effect the poverty stricken hard working American families who get up and go to work everyday without the social net and hierarchy of a military to help them.

    I think the problem is this negotiation is that conservatives feels it is a problem to help parents feed their kids, but is is ok to spend 1.5 billion, a significant amount that could feed lots of the patriotic working poor, but cigarettes, makeup, magazines, and cleaning supplies.
