"A lot of the spending cuts that we're making should be around areas like defense spending as opposed to food stamps," President Obama told in an interview with NPR.

Must feed the Democrat voters.
Everybody has their priorities, but the truth is the cutting has to start.
I suggest we means test those 44 million.
Cuts are going to come. They will hit everywhere. Defense will be hit hard. I think most people understand that. But saying "Let's cut Defense" is easy -- everyone says that and they have done so for years.
Let's go beyond the easy stuff -- what else needs to be cut?
From the land of the free to the land of the freeloaders. Barry’s “fundamental transformation” really sucks. Unless you’re a lazy, freeloading commie type looking for handouts.
The USA has been protecting much of the rest of the world since WWII. When we disarm ourselves, who will be there to protect us or the rest of the world? No one. That seems to be the goal of those who admire evil...the left.
Our soldiers do not live as well as those on welfare programs. Time to end that.
Just curious....why do kids on food stamps need to get free breakfast, lunch, and dinner at school? Are their parent(s) too lazy to actually pack them some of the free food they already get in a brown bag?
The weapon that is the biggest threat to our military is debt.
Just another way Americans will be defeated, while waddling around without a care in the world.
I think they ought to be WEIGHT tested...a lot of that crowd is north of 300 lbs., IMO....
If they're really needy, government cheese, dried milk, dried beans, macaroni, butter, meat loaf and other USDA surplus commodities do a good job of filling an empty belly.
Yes, defense cuts need to come (and I’m a defense contractor) but seriously, it’s not an either/or situation. Everything needs to be cut.
Nope. Notice should be given that in six months the Food Stamp program shall end. In addition, all Federal workers involved with the Food Stamp program shall be fired. Also, any Federally owned buildings involved in the Food Stamp program shall be leveled.
I know that's all fantasy, but it would definitely be how our Founders would want it.
Trivia question. Who’s picture is on a $3 food stamp?
They don’t need to means test food stamps..they need to run them via e-verify.
There are lots of illegals and others working for cash and getting foods stamps and other bene’s.
..which is why the McConnell surrender is poisonous. It gives 0bama carte blanche to make all the decisions in terms of what gets cut. Then it takes 2/3 to override the eventual veto of their initial vote to deny. Massive cuts to DOD are what 0bama, his boss Soros and other enemies of America desire along the path to destruction of the Nation.
Social programs will remain untouched, while Defense once again serves as the left`s cash cow.
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
