    Agree, but if you wanted to choke off those ripping off the system, you would not have passed the farm bill at all.

    The only person who used the term everyone is you. I know first hand of food stamp fraud, and I tried to report it and the bureaucrats forking it over don't care. I'm all for helping people in need. People wo need dietary supplemental foods would do well to eat more rice, beans, and one grown vegetables. With the volumes of money we are talking about they could even establish community gardens / urban farms for people.

    So it's ok to hand people money to buy fast food at McDonald's but not ok to subsidize food production which saves money for everyone?

    Proves that Republicans have just as much interest in silencing dissent. Unless Gohmert is a Liberal in disguise...hmmmm....

    Absolutely. I don't see Republicans wanting to "choke off" the corporations, that get billions in farm subsidies, which most of them don't even need.

    And to think, I only voted for him because his Dem opponent was a Welfare Liberal.

    Hmm, the latest figures I have for both Welfare and Food Stamp recipients come from Oct. 2012. They show 4,300,000 people on Welfare, and 46,700.000 people getting food stamps. Welfare Statistics | Statistic Brain

    Wow, that means 42,400,000 people NOT on welfare use food stamps. Maybe they are all unemployed? Nope, the latest figure from the Bureau of Labor is 11,800,000 unemployed. http://www.bls.gov/news.release/pdf/empsit.pdf

    That still leaves somewhere near 30,600,000 people! Must be an awful lot of employed food stamp using cheats out there. We certainly can't need food stamps if people are gainfully employed can we????

    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.
