Everyday people across the country leave their homes in search of work, only to return at the end of the day with more worries and less hope," said Rep. Sam Farr (D-Calif.), the agriculture subcommittee's ranking member. "At a time that people continue to struggle to make ends meet, Republicans want to cut funding to food programs that are helping put food on the tables of those most in need."
"Governing is about choices. It is clear where the House majority’s priorities lie -- and it is not with those of the American people," said Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.), a strong WIC advocate, in a statement. "These cuts are unconscionable and will not only hurt families trying to survive, but also hurt our economy."
"We understand that we have an obligation to get our fiscal house in order," added Farr. "And Democrats are ready to work with our friends across the isle to make that happen, but not by discriminately targeting those most in need.”

Leftist soros propaganda machine the huffington post says republicans want to starve poor families oh my! Teach a man to fish and he will never starve keep giving man fish and you will both starve. The democrats love giving you what you "need" to survive so you will depend on them for everything and vote for them over and over and over.....nevermind the fact that these cuts are being implimented after discovery of people using govt aid to gamble ect in casinos and buy drugs and disease causing sugar foods and on and on....how horrible of those mean republicans to take away peoples drug money
