Moonbats who voted for Obama because of promises of a free ride of entitlements galore are about to experience the bumps along the road Those who chose to sit it out for Obama’s so-called generosity of government entitlements will soon be forced into action lest their children go hungry. As for everyone else who lost their jobs, are no longer able to collect unemployment, brace yourselves, it’s about to get even tighter.
Democrats who just last week took $26 billion from the food stamp program to pay teachers’ unions are about to cut the entitlement program even further, this time to pay for Michelle Obama’s initiative program.
Yep, you heard it right moonbats, the Obamas are cutting your food stamps, SNAP is about to go POP.
“The House will soon consider an $8 billion child nutrition bill that’s at the center of the first lady’s “Let’s Move” initiative. Before leaving for the summer recess, the Senate passed a smaller version of the legislation that is paid for by trimming the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, commonly known as food stamps.
The proposed cuts would come on top of a 13.6 percent food stamp reduction in the $26 billion Medicaid and education state funding bill that President Obama signed this week.
Food stamps have made multiple appearances on the fiscal chopping block because Democrats have few other places to turn to offset the cost of legislation.
Party leaders raided the budget to find off-setting tax increases and spending cuts to pay for their top legislative priorities, including the roughly $900 billion healthcare law. Congressional pay-as-you-go rules require lawmakers to offset all non-emergency spending.
Democrats have turned to the food stamp program because funding increases enacted in the stimulus package last year were already scheduled to phase out over time. The changes proposed in the state aid and nutrition bills would simply cut off that increase early, in March 2014. Because the cuts would not take effect for more than three years, Democratic leaders have voiced the hope that they will be able to stop them in future legislation.
But House liberals are balking now, saying that while they swallowed the food stamp cuts to pay for urgent funding for Medicaid and teachers, they will not vote for more cuts in the child nutrition bill. In a letter sent this week to Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), 106 House Democrats urged the speaker to take the House version of the child nutrition bill, which does not slash food stamps, rather than the Senate version.
‘This is one of the more egregious cases of robbing Peter to pay Paul, and is a vote we do not take lightly,’ the lawmakers, led by Reps. Jim McGovern (D-Mass.) and Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) said of their vote on the state aid bill….”
While House Democrats balk about further cuts to the food stamp program and have even shot off correspondence to that effect, in the end, SNAP will go POP for Michelle.
“…The nutrition bill is clearly a priority for Michelle Obama*, who has made a push for healthy eating one of her signature policy issues at White House. When the House version of the nutrition bill won committee approval in July, it marked the first time she weighed in publicly on pending legislation.
The Obama administration has not directly addressed the debate over the food stamp cuts, but it is backing the Senate bill. “We strongly supported the Senate action and look forward to working with the House to get a final bill onto the president’s desk,” an administration official told The Hill.”
Nutrition has absolutely nothing to do with the logic behind Michelle Obama’s initiative program. That was one of the primary purposes of providing food stamps. If the food stamp program intended to aid the hungry and poverty-stricken is cut, then those dollar menus at fast food restaurants Michelle keeps bitching about becomes all the more welcoming…..ya think.
*Translation, what is important here is that Michelle Obama gets hers. From where the Obama’s sit in the White House, a few hunger pains will not kill your fat kids whom the first lady has deemed too fat in the first place and a threat to national security.
By the way, Obama the tyrant supports his wife’s initiative even if it means millions of Americans go hungry in the process. However, one must be mindful that while Barack champions his wife’s initiative, Americans would do well to revisit and recall how MICHELLE O. FOUNDED PATIENT DUMPING PROGAM FOR CHICAGO HOSPITAL THAT MADE THE OBAMAS RICH, then ask ourselves, how much will they steal this time.
There is no rationale in robbing Peter to pay Paul. In furtherance, paying Paul has nothing to do with it because Paul is nothing more than a pawn to get Peter’s goodies. The game plan here is that once Peter has been robbed to hand Paul less than 10% of every dollar taken from Peter and pocket the rest.
As with Obamacare, the stimulus bill and other legislation forced through at the behest of the dictator in the White House, the patient dumping program founded by Michelle Obama, AND Michelle Obama’s initiative program, the needs of the people are an excuse and justification to pillage.
Michelle Obama’s initiative program is an opportunity for the Obamas to run their latest con, as they and fellow progressives pick our pockets, diminish our freedom of choice as a family, as parents, as individuals and continue to pilfer government coffers dry.
