Reid Statement On Republicansí Vote To Deny Nutrition Assistance To Hungry Americans
United States Senate Democrats ^ | Sep 19, 2013 | Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid

Posted on 09/19/2013 4:17:37 PM PDT by mdittmar

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.”

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.

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.

And this is why Reid won't pass a budget in the Senate. He is avoiding having propaganda like this being directed at Democrats by refusing to get the Democrats on the record for anything.

Republicans in the House are doing their Constitutional duty by voting on bills. Reid is using that as a weapon against the Republicans.

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?

Did I miss the part where "poor" harry reid who came to the senate with NOTHING (his words) and is now a multi-millionaire (how exactly does that happen on a senate-critters salary??) is going to forsake his salary for the poor un-washed?

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.

7 million taken in Baltimore food stamp fraud

.... 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 here’s the really funny thing: the name of this guy’s store is The Second Obama Express. Were investigators really that surprised that a store bearing our president’s 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.

What a joke

Doesn’t spending legislation have to originate in the House?

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”.
