Why America Is Failing – ‘House Passes Farm Bill, Now Without Food Stamp Cuts’
For those Americans, the elderly, military families, single mothers, working poor who depend on food stamps…..The Republicans will get right on that…..Right after they cut funding for it.
WASHINGTON (AP) — ‘The House has passed a scaled-down version of a massive farm bill, putting off a fight over food stamp spending and giving Republican leaders a victory after a decisive defeat on the larger bill last month’.
‘The GOP leaders scrambled to get the bill to the floor Thursday and gather enough votes this week after making a decision to drop a politically sensitive food stamp section of the bill and pass legislation that contained only farm programs’.
