    there has to be republicans who are family farmers, or on food stamps, or a senior citizen, or will be one. Why do these republicans put up with this kind of thing?

    Why are there farm subsidies? Is Archer Daniels Midland going broke? Have Republican members of the Agriculture committee fallen on hard times?

    I guess the Teabaggers won’t be happy even when the bridges and overpasses collapse on the starving living in tents underneath.
    Great drawing BTW.

    It is either that or live in Walmart’s parking lot if you are homeless. The parks are becoming off limits.

    A Library of Congress study showed it also may be the first time in history the House has rejected a farm bill, although in 2012 a farm bill died without being brought to a vote.- Reuters 6/20/2013

    There are Republicans who are farmers, but not family farmers. Gentleman absentee farmers. That’s why the vast farm subsidies were not cut in the farm bill. But those subsidies are also not the reason for killing the bill. The bill was killed because it didn’t kick the poor enough.

    Working at Walmart you’ll still need welfare and food stamps to get by. Walmart itself is a taker.

    Scott Faber, senior vice president for government affairs with the Environmental Working Group, said the failure to pass a new farm law should be a wake up call to lawmakers. “The full House was right to reject a bloated farm bill that increases subsidies for the largest and most successful farm businesses, while needlessly cutting programs designed to help feed the hungry and protect the environment,” he said. “Many lawmakers simply couldn’t support a bill that lacked real reforms.”

    Lawmakers should address one thing at a time not try to pass legislation that is a cornucopia of governmental giveaways.

    Someone wants that job until they find out how hard it is. USPS is trying to hire, but 50% can’t get past the drug test, others can’t get past the driving test, and others quit once they see the job is not a walk in the park, and supervisors don’t give a damn about service, just numbers. Until you screw up. Then it’s ALL about service! We need to start holding corps and gov accountable for how they treat people, AND how thy train them!

    Lots of excuses there.

    Make sure you are registered to vote. Along with your family, your friends, your neighbors and – as done in some liberal circles – vote often.

    Get out on the street and support your candidate but make sure that person is honest and has integrity.

    Next election, vote against every incumbent regardless of party.

    Sure, that means you have an inexperienced congress. So what? They time incumbents spent sticking the knife in your back should be counted against them.

    But… I like my rep….you say.

    Then yes, you will continue to be screwed.

    “Gee, y’think it might’ve been the Republican amendment to gut the SNAP program?”


    But they proposed it and voted against it. Quite strange when you consider that the Teapublicans like to gut our social infrastructure in the name of waste.
