The Republican Party is throwing corporate welfare at farmers, but telling people who are so poor they qualify for government aid to feed themselves that they are not a priority. As a matter of basic politics, the Republicans have lost their minds. This is Mitt Romney’s 47 percent remark all over again.

President Obama has vowed to veto this GOP farm bill if it hits his desk, so Congress is going to have to try again. You know who needs to find their voice and use it right now? Conservative Christian pastors and leaders. Christians need to seriously reconsider uncritical support for a political party that prioritizes lavishing subsidies on the agribusiness rich while telling the poor to sit quietly and wait for scraps.

Still trying to find that passage after about a year and a half.

Might be interesting to read about one of those "Cadillac welfare queens" and think about how cutting her food stamps will help her out. http://inplainsight.nbcnews.com/_new...be-higher?lite

Well sure. Of course the mainstream media is going to find the one person in America not totally gaming the system.

Sorry, I just don't believe there are other actual people in this woman's situation. I don't ever see them in my neighborhood or hear about them on my TV, therefore, they probably don't exist. The poor people I see on my favorite police TV show all do drugs and are lazy. That's how poor people are.

Yeah, Christ was a turrible Christian. Audience with the Guvnah, and not even one petition of grievance for the state of the Empire's poor.

Hou. 1:1 - 1:2 "Yea, though the land be plenty with the poor, worry not of alms from thine own hand. For you have a ballot, and with it a lawyer elected, who shall tap thy wealthy neighbor, and do thy work for thee."

And for the record, the R's are absolutely retarded for having a fight over food stamps of all things at this point.

Terrible battle selection, TBH.

Let's be real here. Does this really surprise you? After seeing how the 2012 election went down after basically having the race in the bag due to the economy and the midterm results, are you really surprised at any of the stupidity that goes on on the Republican side any more?

After seeing the countless brainless blunders they've unleashed for, oh, the last 24 months or so, a situation like this is par for the course. In any other time, in any other administration, this would be huge news. But there has been such continuously bad battle selection on the part of the Republicans...in fact, there hasn't been any selection, it's just been one big battle.

People are sick of it, as Congress' ratings get worse and worse, setting a new record each month. The Tea Party has infiltrated and is in the process of destroying the Republican Party. If the Republicans want to retain the brand name, they would be smart to adopt the liberal policies so many on here have stated time and again. If they continue to pander to the Tea Party, they will be replaced by a party more resembling Libertarianism. It's only a matter of time.

But regardless, they need to change, and they need to do so by no longer advocating policies that target the poor, like food stamps, minorities, like immigration and voter ID, marriage rights and medicare.

The polls are in, and unless you are still in the bubble that believes most polls are faked, the polls say change, or die.

It's not a TP problem. It's a leadership problem. Leadership says to whomever wants to raise a fuss about a side issue like this "Hey, I hear ya, but we need to can it in this case because it's insignificant in the big picture and here's why"

In any group of hundreds of politicians, you'll always have a few nitwits that want to argue over this or that inconsequential bit, maybe on principle, or for spite, or any myriad number of reasons.

It's the leadership that either lets that see the light of day or sidelines it. And letting this kind of crap fester with the kind of real, cataclysmic type problems we're facing is the real problem. They lack discipline and focus. And they've had enough of a chance now that it's clear that new leadership is needed.

Nope. The GOP invited the radical fringe into the party in order to take the South from the Dems. It was the Lee Atwater "Southern Strategy" that got Reagan elected. They peddled the mantra of "states rights", abortion, flag burning, more prisons and the various wars on drugs and homosexuality. It was so successful, they couldn't afford to change their tune. They had to keep throwing meat to the ravening fringe. Now that fringe has congealed into a tumor the party can't excise. It has metastasized and it wants to sit in the driver's seat.

You can already see what is going to happen. The fringe is going to line up behind Paul and Cruz and the rest of the party is going to line up with Christie and the GOP establishment. It's going to be a cage match to the death. Popcorn time.
