Mean People Suck: The 217 Members of Congress Who Said Yes To Food Stamp Cuts

Yeah,so…that happened.
Friday, a bunch of overpaid clowns voted  ,”Hell,YEAH!” to cutting $40 billion over 10 years from SNAP. It’s what Jesus would have wanted.
So said Congressman Kevin Cramer  when he threw Bible quotes at someone who basically asked him,”What the hell are you thinking?”.What Would Jesus Cut?

Incidentally, it was the same Bible quote Stephen Lee Fincher (R-Tenn.) used back in May when the first vote for the SNAP cuts happened. These guys have this in their back pocket ,at the ready, whether it’s logical and applicable or not. 2 Thessalonians 3:10, which says “for even when we were with you, we used to give you this order: If anyone is not willing to work, then he is not to eat, either.”

I hate when Jesus gets pulled into this conversation , and I don’t know Jesus personally, but from what I’ve heard, I think he would be like, ‘Dafuq you say?’.

Along with the basic idea of not helping people to eat, Jesus sounds like he’d be the kind of guy who would say something like, “Thou shalt not cast votes based on myths and false information perpetrated by a political party.” Or be a suck-ass meanie.

To listen to the GOP, no one getting food stamps actually works at all. But in reality, 40% do. And then the rest are children ,elderly,disabled… with a relatively small percentage being unemployed. I know,I know… we should be making those children work for their food,too.
Along with the cuts, it’s now specifically stated that you have to be working to get assistance, which is nothing new at all. Most states already have this policy in place and the Welfare to Work program was part of wide sweeping welfare reform. There are some states and regions that have lifted this policy because there just are no jobs in that region.

Republicans say that the cuts to the program are going to make people go out and get a job. I’m guessing they mean a second job or maybe a third? Maybe it’s a magic they conjured up (with prayer,of course) that just automatically created enough jobs at a living wage along with the cuts. That would be some special magic.

So, I bet you’d like to know who these 217 mean people are. Here’s the list:images

13 of those sorry examples of human beings also accept a farm subsidy . They’ve accepted a total of 7.2 million dollars in farm subsidies. Hey, wait…. I have an idea. Let’s save ourselves some money and take away their subsidies. They are not in desperate need of them. Their net worth is $124.5 million. It’s not like they’re going to have to go apply for food stamps or anything . Why should taxpayers support individuals not willing to learn the value of work?
