Cuts could be made by removing some of the "food" choices available, like soft drinks.

The whole point of SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) is to provide nutrition. We need to take a hard look at the "food" items allowed.

Oh, and Rahm Emanuel, is in favor of limiting soft drinks purchased with food stamps. I wanted to point that out before everyone gets their underwear in a twist about Republicans starving the poor.

Unlike the government jobs republicans cut from their state budgets. The austerity measures the republicans foisted on the public has hurt recovery.

"Liberals insist President Barack Obama's "stimulus" program has worked to pull the nation out of the economic doldrums. Yet when it is suggested social programs expanded - allegedly temporarily - to help victims of the recession can be pared back, they resist.

Of course, most Republicans voted in favor of the cuts - but 62 did not. Why? Some analysts say they voted no - in effect supporting anti-cut Democrats - because they did not believe the spending control went deep enough.

Perhaps not. But apparently conservatives who voted against it have never heard the advice that half a loaf is better than none, especially in view of the fact Democrats control the Senate. This is no way to save taxpayers from bloated government."


The Editorial-joke writes itself!!
