    Braindead republicans want more children and less assistance for them...

    GOP to Hungry Americans: You Can Starve | AlterNet

    BRAINDEAD.

    They hold their agenda above disaster relief for those affected by tornado.

    ThinkProgress » Cantor Says Congress Won’t Pay For Missouri Disaster Relief Unless Spending Is Cut Elsewhere

    BRAINDEAD.

    Look after their own.

    ThinkProgress » With Speculation Running Rampant, House GOP Proposes 15 Percent Cut To Oil Market Watchdog

    BRAINDEAD.

    Screw the old, screw the poor, screw the women, screw the children, screw the needy, save the fetus, save the rich, save the power.

    Please, rational conservatives, take your party back.

    Yes, well that'll be one of the things that pre-abortion counselors can tell a poor pregnant woman who's trying to decide whether she can afford to give birth or not, won't it?


    I am ashamed to live in Virginia.

    Please be advised that Eric Cantor may say he represents me but he does not.

    These are the same folks who want to bring more unwanted children into a world that does not want to support them with the basic services they need.

    Coincidentally T Sowell had an article on the same subject matter today. As usual he hits the nail on the head.

    Dependency and Votes - Thomas Sowell - National Review Online




    I would also be surprised if the 'cut' wasn't actually a cut in a budgeted increase. I would rather see the poor in the middle class rather than be enslaved to generations of government dependency/poverty.

    Yup cutting 11% from the WIC budget is definitely teaching a man to fish. Blind partisan support, it's hilarious.

    R Paul your hero would eliminate the entire program. What is the spending now compared with say 2008?

    Don't take everything you read at face value.

    That quote is a heaping pile of crap.

    By almost every measure (including, perhaps most importantly, the happiness of their citizens), welfare states are at the top of the list in terms of socioeconomic metrics. While this Ayn Rand-ian pablum sounds good in theory, the fact is that people LIKE the services government provides and the role it plays in administering a modern society.

    From the AP

    If you click the link, it also says that they have budgeted $71 Billion for food stamps. $71 billion. I'm just curious why we decided to give Pakistan more money recently. Hmm....oh well. Now, if we could slash 20% from the military budget, 90% from the department of education, ans 99.9% in foreign aid, we might be on to something.

    What does that have to do with the point at hand?

    Correcting fiscal imbalances isn't going to lead ineluctably to this romanticized rugged individualist society lusted after by conservatives but non-existent in the civilized world.

    When did I say it would? I am questioning the utopian ideal.
