No more Food Stamps

Comments:  | Leave A Comment

According to Cnn.com, House Republicans stripped food stamp provisions opposed by conservatives and narrowly passed scaled back legislation on Thursday to overhaul the nation’s farm programs.

Democrats chastised the GOP for ignoring initiatives they argue poor Americans need to keep from going hungry.

The vote was 216-208 and no Democrat voted for it. Twelve Republicans opposed the bill.
Debate on the floor was raucous and Democrats several times angrily screamed at Republicans and accused them of dismissing the needs of low income Americans.
