During last summer’s hard-won debt deal, President Obama and Congressional leaders agreed to a set of spending cuts designed to reduce the Federal budget deficit, including a $54.7 billion reduction in defense spending for FY2013.
Nine months later, however, leaders in the U.S. House are set to renege on this agreement by reversing the scheduled defense cuts and making up the resulting short-fall by making an additional $34 billion cut over the next ten years to the Supplementary Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)—otherwise known as food stamps—a program that was explicitly exempted from the spending cuts outlined in the original debt deal due to their disproportionate impact on the most vulnerable.
If you can believe it, Politico has reported on this and Hell yes I will link to them for pointing out some egregious lobbying cocksuckers lying their asses off to the detriment of our fellow citizens to prop up the Industrial Military Complex.
Best of all, it highlights that oh so wonderful Paul Ryan and his Vunderbudget.
The other reason I am linking to them is to give these craven motherfuckers more rope to strangle themselves with.
Are you fucking kidding me?
They are such Ebeneezer Scrooges that they would literally lobby to take the food out of a hungry child's mouth to pay for more fucking bullets,to randomly blow other innocent babies, newlyweds and goat farmers out in the middle of nowhere to Kingdom Come to pad their resumes like a fucking Baseball players stats?
Damn straight they would.
