    Gohmert repeatedly shouts ‘Objection!’ to silence claims food stamp cuts hurt hungry

    Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) on Thursday objected over and over again in order to keep statements out of the congressional record that accused Republicans of hurting working families by taking food stamps out of the farm bill.Before a vote could be taken on the Republican farm bill that drops the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) — or food stamps — Democrats attempted to voice their unhappiness by inserting statements into the record.
    “Mr. Speaker, I ask unanimous consent to revise and extend my remarks in strong opposition to the farm bill rule and the underlying bill because it will increase hunger in America,” Rep. Suzanne Bonamici (D-OR) said.


    Although requests to “revise and extend” remarks are routine, Gohmert immediate shouted, “Objection!”

    Gohmert objecting over and over again allowing Democrats statements to go on the record over the recent farm bill that will ultimately hurt working families by taking food stamps out of the farm bill. Gohmert you are a total clown.

    Apparently he is, and if you're a republican that says a lot about your party when you have Gohmert as that position

    From the article: "“Mr. Speaker, I ask unanimous consent to revise and extend my remarks in strong opposition to the farm bill rule and the underlying bill because it will increase hunger in America,” Rep. Suzanne Bonamici (D-OR) said."

    So what she means is, separating the two would require each to stand on it's own merits. Doing so would cut some of the bribery for people to vote for democrats so she is against it. Removing people from the democrat plantation is very upsetting to democrats. They like to keep 'em poor or less than middleclass for a lifetime or just hook them government goodies because. Why if this happens she will lose votes and she doesn't want that.

    Way to go Louie. Glad to see my Rep is not just sitting in Congress and not doing something to help the people.

    And to think, I only voted for him because his Dem opponent was a Welfare Liberal.
    Only a fool measures equality by results and not opportunities.

    I just Googled, and in addition to Raw Story, Crooks and Liars, Care2.com, and Democratic Underground are very upset.

    $28 a week is over a $1000 a year. This should be changed to 40 lbs of rice, 40 lbs of beans, and classes on gardening.

    Apparantly Suzanne doesn't understand the House's parliamentary procedure despite having been there for a while now.
