1st increasing money to food shelves is not the answer - many of the poor do not have access.

Will only reduce by 5%. OH MY GOD. How out of touch with reality are you people? Whats your take home pay? What is your wife's take home pay? Plan your budget for next month with only $ 1500.00 to spend - now plan for that budget for you and your family for the next year. HUH - do your prospects look bright for the coming year?

Sorry but with all due respect ( very little if any ) all of you a--h---s in government better start austerity measures and proper taxation on the wealthy and the corp(se)oRATions. Just who the F--K do you think you are all kidding anyway. Just because main stream tv is doing their best not to cover the turmoil in this country - THAT does not mean in any way shape or form that their is no turmoil - there is - And - IT IS GROWING. Continuing to starve the poor and lower class while letting the middle class continue to crumble - Well it ain't gonna reduce turmoil of the population or dissent or derision of the government ( growing derision ) by the people.

WAKE THE F--K Up.

Mr.

Coon Rapids, MN

Dear Mr. :

Thank you for letting me know of your opposition to spending reductions in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).

As you may know, the House made some changes and reforms to this important program that helps those facing hunger and poverty.

First, it is important for you to know that this bill increases funding for food banks by $330 million. This helps ensure our local hunger organizations who provide for our neighbors in need.

Second, you should be aware that spending on SNAP has increased by 100% in 5 years. The reforms in this bill will only reduce spending on the SNAP program by 5% and are tied directly to the same reforms included in the successful, bipartisan welfare reforms passed under President Clinton.

In addition, this bill also included a bipartisan provision I authored with Rep. McCollum to help disabled, low income seniors who are unable to leave their homes use SNAP benefits to get the food they need by allowing nonprofit organizations to deliver to their home. This permits nonprofit groups like Minnesota’s Store To Door to actively assist homebound seniors.

Thanks again for sharing your concerns, as I appreciate hearing from you. Please let me know whenever I can be of assistance.

Sincerely,

Member of Congress

Huh - no comments - no interest - I guess there are just too many distractions today. OH well maybe later.

I don not expect the situation to improve any time soon.

I don't know - there are an awful lot of freshly stomped on citizens - and the A-holes in office just wanna keep stomping on em. Things could change fairly quickly. Stranger things have happened.

I don't know what to think about this post. I said this was coming, over and over and over. I was called an Obama hater, a troll, made out to be crazy because you and others on this forum insisted we were in a recovery. I don't expect an apology so instead I offer you an "I told you so!". We are not in a recovery, never were. It's a numbers game that is being propped up by the Federal Reserve which is why WallSt is freaking the F--k out over the end of QE. QE is and has been the economic growth on WallSt for over 5 years and by proxy, the GDP. There has been a record number of revision of financial reports from government and the private sector over this period and those revisions paint the real economic picture but the revisions take place after the initial reporting, thus the media reports happy fun times and the revisions look a little more like hell on earth.

My only question here is why you changed from supporting the idea that we were in a recovery to posting about the decline of our economy. What was your wake up call?

Hey idiot - I - NEVER said that this country was in recovery.

Actually, you did. If I felt like taking the time, I would find and post the permalinks to those comments.

I have done nothing to be blocked from commenting so I would appreciate you not doing so. Thanks.

Go ahead - because so far all you are is a waste of space. Your comment has not been blocked. But as I expect that you are just another sock because of your past bad behavior and subsequent banning-s - it's likely your agenda will see you booted again if not by me then by someone else.
