    I don't know, but there's no way that 100% of the people collecting welfare absolutely need it. Even you're smart enough to know that.

    Some small business owners are eligible for unemployment benefits due to loopholes in the legislation, I know that much.

    For some reason, a lot of farmers were against removing SNAP from the farm bill
    532 farm organizations, including the American Farm Bureau Federation, the nation’s largest farm lobby, called on lawmakers not to split the farm bill into two pieces of legislation. In a letter on Thursday, Bob Stallman, president of the Farm Bureau, called the split disappointing. But after the vote, Mr. Stallman said the group would move ahead with getting a new five-year farm bill.

    “While we were hopeful the farm bill would not be split, nor permanent law repealed, we will now focus our efforts on working with lawmakers to deliver a farm bill to the president’s desk for his signature by September,” he said.
    While Goofus Gohmert mouths off, loudly, when some of his colleagues attempt to follow procedure in voicing their objections - in back rooms, subsidies were increased for cotton, peanut and rice farmers. The cotton subsidy is a sore point with other nations as it violates various trade agreements which the US has signed.
    “And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”
    ~ James Madison, letter to Edward Livingston, July 10, 1822

    Nobody ever said it was 100%. That's just absurd. Nothing is 100% abuse free.

    How much government interference and additional spending are you willing to accept to make that number become 100%?
