Forget About The Cake, Marie... Eat The Rich, Instead!

Eat The Rich:

Under President George W. Bush, the GOP never seemed to make a big fuss about nor any decisive moves to curtail his kid-in-a-candy-store spending habits.

Yet now, under President Barack Obama, the GOP is all about the importance of controlling spending and cutting the Deficit.

O.K.... But what, exactly, are Republicans in Congress willing to cut?

How about cutting the $35 Million in tax breaks given to the (highly-profitable) oil and gas industry?

The GOP said, "No."

How about off-setting those Bush tax-cuts?

The GOP said, "No."

How about the Dems "Pay-as-you-go" plan to off-set all new spending?

GOP: "No."

Well gee, GOP, what the heck are you willing to cut?

Well, Republicans in Congress finally said, "Yes" (Didn't think they had it in them)...
To cutting $6.7 Billion from The Food Stamp Program.

The Food Stamp Program!

This is a national program which both creates economic stimulus AND puts food on the tables of America's poor and their families.

Eviscerating the Food Stamp Program is a terrible, callous and contemptible course of action for the GOP.

Think about it.

The GOP doesn't want Congress to allow the multi-$Billion Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans expire.

But hey, when it comes to cutting the Deficit by taking food off the tables and out of the mouths of the poor, instead... They're all for it.
