Washington, DC Nevada Senator Harry Reid released the following statement today:
House Republicans vote to deny nutrition assistance to hungry, low-income Americans is shameful. The Senate will never pass such hateful, punitive legislation.
Under the leadership of Chairwoman Stabenow, the Senate forged a bipartisan compromise that saves $23 billion without taking food out of the mouths of hungry Americans. Whenever the House gets serious about passing real legislation, they should follow the lead set by Chairwoman Stabenow.
Where is Reuters,where is the old media!
It's shameful I tell ya!;)
Donthca just wish Harry Reid would go on a hunting trip with Dick Cheney?
Doesn’t spending legislation have to originate in the House?
Mass Gov. Deval Patrick vetoes ban on purchasing tattoos, manicures, porn with EBT
its for the children.
“Donthca just wish Harry Reid would go on a hunting trip with Dick Cheney?”
Yeah, on a hunt that requires 00 Buck in the shotguns.
If hungry Americans want me to pay for their food, they should at least have the decency to steal my money by sticking a knife in my ribs themselves, instead of trying to sanitize it by voting the job to some petty bureaucrat.
They aren’t necessarily “hungry”...they are hungry for your money.
Vote to deny taxpayer support for fraudulent applications for benefits!!!
Some states are setting up mandatory drug testing for welfare recipients.
Stories about EBT cards being used to buy lobsters for the DO
GS owned by welfare recipients are enough to make anyone’s blood boil. The fraud in the current system is rampant. How many people are getting food stamp assistance at the same time their kids are getting free school lunches? Double dipping, IMO.
I feed my animals well, but no one in this house has come near a lobster in over 35 years.
Republicans in the House are doing their Constitutional duty by voting on bills. Reid is using that as a weapon against the Republicans.
Harry Reid has not paid taxes the last 10 years. A pixie told me.
If 400,000 people die from obesity each year, and 400 die of hunger, they haven’t cut nearly enough.
Such drama. The Senate Majority Leader is morphing into an hysterical old lady.
Do these idiots ever go to a Super Walmart and see exactly how “hungry” those who get “Nutrition Assistance” actually look?
Hey harry, go f yourself pal; I am not seeing donations blossoming from your hard and greedily earned accounts. Here or the hidden ones abroad.
I cannot post my sentiments regarding yet another elected negro with their hands on my wallet. I will be banned for life. But to say I’m pissed off beyond all reason is an understatement.
.... Of the 10 business owners named in the indictment, the biggest offender was Abdullah Aljardi who is accused of siphoning off $2 million in benefits over the course of three years.
Now heres the really funny thing: the name of this guys store is The Second Obama Express. Were investigators really that surprised that a store bearing our presidents name was involved in theft and fraud?
Ol’ Dingy’s been having dementia again.
They really need to put one of those homing beacons on him. Old folks out in Nevada have been known to wander off into the desert and not be seen again.
Who is being denied? Name them? Probably a cut in the rate of growth.
What a joke
Mass and CA are some messed up places
to what terror group did he send this money?
According to this, the House version cuts $40 billion, the Senate version cuts $4 billion and the two bills must be reconciled.
They wouldn’t be caught dead in a Walmart. They have no idea what it’s really like out here........and they don’t care.
Hey Harry, drug test every welfare/food stamp recipient on a regular basis. If they can afford drugs they don’t need taxpayer money!!!!
Demand they clean up the fraud before funding it further.
Keep cutting it every year until they do.
The last straw for me was paying nearly $4 per gallon and seeing a sticker on the pump that said “EBT accepted”.
