‘Updated 12:15 p.m. | House Republican leaders have decided to drop food stamps from the farm bill and are whipping the farm-only portion of the bill for a vote that will likely come this week, according to a GOP leadership aide’.

‘The nutrition portion of the bill would be dealt with later’.

‘Cantor has privately been pushing to separate the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, more commonly known as food stamps, from the farm provisions. According to the Congressional Budget Office, SNAP accounts for $743.9 billion of the estimated $972.3 billion cost of the House bill over the next 10 years’.

“Cantor believes the best path now is to move forward with a bill that has 218 Republican votes since Democrats proved they cannot be trusted to work in good faith, and that path may be splitting up the bill,” a GOP aide told CQ Roll Call two weeks ago’.

    “Hey! Who The Hell Needs Those Costly – Pesky – Free “Gubmint” Give-Away Food Stamp Thingies Anyway?” Is What I Want Somebody To Tell Me!
    Don’t be showing me pictures of desperately hungry little kids holding up signs asking for someone to help them obtain enough food to eat and to remain healthy with – – Don’t show me the pictures because there shouldn’t be a need for such pictures!
    Just leave the Food Stamp Program alone and get help to where help is needed – – – and what else would someone expect from Righties? Isn’t that about par for the course in that side of the political circus tent?
    So what the Hell else is new?
