Now, elect Republicans who, in the passed, cut food stamps, cut free lunch programs, cut funding for Meals on Wheels.
Most of the cuts were stopped by Democrats.
What would America look like if Republicans had the majority?
‘In a city of wealth, 1.4 million people rely on a network of 1,000 food pantries and soup kitchens to eat. That’s an increase of 200,000 people in five years, and the city’s programs are struggling to keep up with that need’.
‘“It’s an astounding surge in need, and it’s because it is so hard for people to find jobs, or find a decent-paying job. They are turning to us for emergency help,” said Msgr. Kevin Sullivan, 63, executive director of 90 free food outlets run by Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of New York’.
“So many people, too many people, don’t have enough money to pay for rent and also eat.”
‘The federal government donates about 19 million pounds of canned or packaged food to the city annually’.
‘The provisions are stored at the Food Bank for New York City’s massive Bronx warehouse and delivered to pantries and soup kitchens’.
‘The state gives the nonprofit $3 million a year to buy deeply discounted food to supplement its supplies’.
‘The Food Bank also receives food donations and some grants from private business partners’.
‘Unlike many other major urban centers, the city also adds some money to the pot. The Human Resources Administration oversees the taxpayer-funded Emergency Food Assistance Program, which gave the Food Bank $8 million last year to buy more items for pantries and kitchens’.

This is teabagger Absolutism.
And this is also why they are the biggest threat to America.
We are a society. To be one, you can’t pick who is going to be in the society nor which laws you’ll obey.
If you want that…..buy an island and move to it.
‘Republican lawmaker in South Dakota thinks there’s no need for the government to meddle in the private sector, even if a business were to turn away black customers’.
‘Here’s Phil Jensen, a GOP state senator and free market absolutist, in his own words’.
“If someone was a member of the Ku Klux Klan, and they were running a little bakery for instance, the majority of us would find it detestable that they refuse to serve blacks, and guess what? In a matter of weeks or so that business would shut down because no one is going to patronize them,” Jensen told the Rapid City Journal in a story that suggested he just might be the crimson red state’s “most conservative lawmaker.”
‘In this year’s legislative session, Jensen offered up a bill that was even more extreme than the legislation in Arizona that would have given businesses an opening to discriminate against LGBT customers’.
‘Unlike the Arizona bill, Jensen’s measure was explicit. It aimed to give business owners permission to deny service based on a customer’s “sexual orientation” without the fear of a lawsuit’.
‘The legislation was ultimately killed in committee, with one GOP lawmaker calling it “a mean, nasty, hateful, vindictive bill.”
