Did anyone else out there notice where the Tea Partiers et al in the House have pushed through a new Agriculture Bill that eliminates “Food Stamps”.
They took their stand: No more public money “wasted on feeding the poor“. The Food Stamp program (officially known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program – SNAP), has been killed-off, while these same Tea Partiers piled on yet more cash subsidies for big business (fraud-ridden) agriculture.
The USA already has food poverty rates that are physically and permanently impairing at least 20% of an entire generation of American children. Since 2010, 1 in 5 US children do not know where their next meal is coming from – and the Tea Party and Conservatives latest votes and latest choices and their latest “bold stances”, aggravate an already out-of-control problem. …
The brain damage and epigenetic changes in these children’s DNA and RNA are not only permanent – but the genetic damage has been proven to continue down for 100 years or more through successive generations. … http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,1952313,00.html , http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2861525/ et al
Why did Tea Partiers and Conservatives create and pass this bill?
The Tea Party leaders and Republicans are voting to sacrifice the health and well being of generations of future Americans to try to prove their beliefs are superior….
Fortunately, the entire world has not entirely descended into the depths of Conservative and Tea Party Madness:
