What I see so typical of conservatives, they claim to be Christian and have high family values, but all I see are a bunch of greedy people complaining about the small amount of their pay check that goes to helping those that are less fortunate.
They complain that the people on food stamps buy junk food, but let's face it, most conservatives make fun or criticize when anyone (Michelle Obama) tries to present programs that teach people how to eat healthy. They don't want anyone telling them how to eat, but they end up hurting the people that need it (the poor), so they could make better choices and provide their families with healthier meals.
They claim to be against abortion, but they cut the programs that educate people regarding sex and pregnancy. So, in reality, they just care about their money and how much more of it they can keep, but, they don't mind if a lot of it goes to the wealthy.
There may be some changes that need to be made to the Food Stamp program, but privatizing it (as the GOP would like to do), would just cause more money going to companies instead of needy people. However, most greedy conservatives would be happy to just do away with it because they don't really care if people starve to death or not.
This isnít about skepticism, however; itís about ironies and outrages. In 2010, corporate profits grew at their fastest rate since 1950, and we set records in the number of Americans on food stamps. The richest 400 Americans have more wealth than half of all American households combined, the effective tax rate on the nationís richest people has fallen by about half in the last 20 years, and General Electric paid zero dollars in U.S. taxes on profits of more than $14 billion. Meanwhile, roughly 45 million Americans spend a third of their post-tax income on food -- and still run out monthly -- and one in four kids goes to bed hungry at least some of the time.
