    We as a society should take care of those who can not take care of themselves.

    There probably were a lot of people starving to death.

    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.

    if things are getting as bad as they are telling us they are, there may be no ther way. redistributing our wealth is not working obviously
    "Let the strong survive"? The meek shall inherit the continent in the end. Your trying to put "strong" into the place of wealthy. There's no real connection there. Many of the poor are much more physically and mentally strong than the rich. Check the suicides that happened in 1929.

    In this society you are free to do so.

    But what you really mean is that government should take what I have to give it to your or your friends. And that is morally repugnant, evil, and wrong.

    Why don't you do that then, or haven't you got the time?

    It seems to me that people who make these 'we as a society' claims often expect others to do all the work.

    And others you do not know will determine how much of your earnings you'll be able to keep for yourself.

    Well, it's official, New Mexico would rather Rich People get Tax Breaks then elderly people and the poor eat.
    This will make for an interesting future study if this law sticks. Hopefully not too many people will be harmed to get that data.
