President Obama signs $8.7 billion food stamp cut into law
On Friday, President Obama added his signature to legislation that will cut $8.7 billion in food stamp benefits over the next 10 years, causing
850,000 households to lose an average of $90 per month. The signing of the legislation known as the 2014 Farm Bill occurred at a public event in East
The food stamp cuts are one component of a massive omnibus bill which also includes billions of dollars in crop insurance and various other programs
and subsidies involving American agriculture. Before he signed the legislation, President Obama praised it as an example of bipartisan problem-solving
that would help create jobs and move the American economy forward...

wanted huh? IMO this signing proves that both the Democrats and Republicans are working for the same commonality.
If this doesn't convince people to deny ignorance, I don't know what will, especially with such great quotes as
When House Republicans originally argued for a food stamp cut of between $20.5 billion and $39 billion, the White House threatened to veto both of
those proposals. During his Friday speech, the president did not say whether he was satisfied with the final $8.7 billion figure, or even mention the
cuts at all. Instead, he praised the food stamp program and said that the final Farm Bill preserved much-needed benefits.
Double Speak At Its Finest. What they are not telling you is that in most metropolis areas, you NOW have to work at least 20-25hrs a week just to
qualify for food stamp benefits. That is just to QUALIFY, not receive. ###SNIPPED### is working for the corporate masters, bought and paid for. So
all you ###SNIPPED### supporters, pat yourself on the back. You got what you wanted, "you got to see ya first black prez before you died" at the
sake OF US ALL. At least with a white POTUS, half of this mess would have been scrutinized with such a fine tooth comb it never WOULD HAVE HAPPENED.
Instead, the ###SNIPPED### caricature has Martial Lawed this place for the next sadistic #er who will be the next corporate shill to take his place.
This should concern every American. "Real Foods" such as non GMOs will be affected by this, as production will slow up or cease, as GMOs will be over
produced and their prices inflated. Bottom line is the cost is going to fall on the people, and more people will be forced to eat junk, both in the
form of cheap snack foods and the Fast Food dollar menu's. There is no way anymore without BS for people to grow their own gardens, fish, and/or hunt
without legal tape and expensive permits. So while everybody is spazzing out about Ferguson, take a good long look at what is being snuck past us all
as a collective.
Don't forget, Sgt Major Dan Page's quote from his rant “So number one is – there’s going to be an emphasis on an international event – the
news media is going to pound it, pound it, pound it. The second thing is you’re going to see a group or a person guilty of racism or something along
those lines and they’re going to start pounding on that. They want your attention over here. The third thing you’re going to start seeing is
people will be arrested for domestic terrorism. The fourth thing you’re going to see and this is what I’m going to talk to the ladies about –
it’s what I call ancient hate, ancient madness, ancient revenge. When these things start to happen, people are going to start rioting. The EBT cards
are going to shut down. Can you imagine what’s going to happen in St Louis County when the EBT cards go down, when the ATM machines don’t
Consider yourselves warned and now bracing for impact.
