Evil Heartless TEApublicans Quote Bible While Gutting Food Stamps!

Hypocrisy, thy name is the Tea Party. Those hate-mongering functional illiterates that spewed venom about “too much spending” ad nauseum for the last 3 years are noticeably silent now. Congress just passed a nearly trillion dollar farm bill. At 955 billion dollars over the next decade this kick in the teeth to the poor, and giveaway to corporations is BIG. Bigger than the stimulus package (831 billion), bigger than TARP (700 billion), bigger than the 2010 Obamacare estimate (940 billion).

Policy Mic reports:

Included in the bill was a seismic cut to food stamps (SNAP) on the magnitude of almost $21 billion over the next decade, in what amounts to an elimination of 2 million people from the program. The cuts in this bill are heartless at their core; yet, they also represent an incredible display of ineptitude by policy makers and members of Congress.

It’s difficult to know where to start. I suppose we could start with the fact that food stamps have a stimulating effect on the economy. Moody Analytics, in assessing the impact on GDP that food stamps have, estimates that for every dollar of food stamps spent, there is an increase of $1.73 in economic activity. In other words, the cuts to food stamps could actually undermine any potential economic recovery.

There is also the simple fact that food stamps keep a lot of people from going hungry. In fact, the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities report that not only do SNAP benefits keep a lot of people from going hungry, but they also help families purchase more nutritious foods, and they are actually projected to decrease as the economy begins to rebound. Close to half of the recipients of SNAP benefits also happen to be children. From a policy perspective, there are many reasons to avoid making cuts to the program.

Tea Party Republicans don’t care about poor people, or if children starve.

Here’s another longer video from The Ed Show discussing the heartless evil TEApublicans’ decimation of the SNAP program in order to give welfare to billionaires and multinational corporations.

    I used to work for a Teapublican family-owned business. I worked 12-hour shifts, was denied lunch breaks, made minimum wage, and never once saw a raise. I threatened on several occasions to report them to the labor board, but was threatened with termination. I couldn’t risk that because I had bills to pay. Meanwhile, the owners of the company drove around in Lexus’s and Mercedes, and dined at the finest restaurants in town. I finally accepted a better paying job and went back to school. The moral of the story is that Teapublicans are nothing more than a bunch of greedy, self-serving parasites, and everyone below them are peons. For these reasons, I also support labor unions.

    Yet more proof that they only care about children BEFORE they are born, not after. Look up the word “hypocrisy” in the dictionary and you’ll see a picture of a teabag!

    What a load of ish!! My mom gets food stamps, but barely 40 bucks a damn month. and before anyone says anything, she turns 70 this year. So that piddly $40 dollars is gonna get cut, too? She has SS, but a good deal of that goes to her rent at the senior apts she’s living in. I think the reason why these TeaPubes are silent is because they FINALLY realize that this is gonna hurt them too!

    Why is anyone surprised? The Bible and Republicanism dove-tail beautifully and constitute the REAL “Axis of Evil”

  • Caleb Grunfeld

    The Bible says to take care of your poor. Feed them, help them out…… All to often they quote the verse that says “If one does not work, they don’t eat !” But it is a Christian commune that is being addressed here. They would take in the poor, the elderly, the sick, etc. But basically the only thing asked was that they work..Gardening, farming, repair…… And if the able just refused to work, they didn’t eat.

      Well we don’t live in a theocracy and I don’t care what the bible says. What does the constitution say. The Republican Party is the American Taliban. Plain and simple…there is NO difference other than a dispute between Jesus and Mohammed.

    The brazen way that Teapubs hand out money and tax breaks to the wealthy and big businesses while demonizing the less fortunate is disgusting! How can they do the things they do and hold a razor to their throats to shave in the morning?

      Maybe someday the razor will slip and they will cut their throat …

    The teapubliCLOWN bible is like the Taliban’s Quran… a mish-mash of sayings that they can spew out to justify their moral failings and war on the weakest of the weak, while benefitting their corporate OWNERS. Fire ALL teapubliCLOWN members of Congress and state offices in 2014, and recall any that don’t have to run next year.
