Each one of these Congresscritters need to be publicly shamed. We should bundle up dolls and leave them on their doorsteps to show the children now going hungry while they continue to feed lavishly at the Federal Trough.
The consequences of taking food from the neediest amongst us will be dire as desperation jumps up to the next level in our society. Suicides are already at higher rates. Now watch as desperate for food adults and children engage in crime because these wealthy republicans have left them with no other options.
We can do better than this. Food stamps double the value of each and every dollar spent in the communities they are spent in. If anything we should be tripling the food stamp budget to compensate for increased prices and increased need.
