    Except....private charities have never been able to match the need.....and contributions are diluted by the overhead for so much redundancy.

    Really? You need that explained? If you object to the majority, you either go along or leave. No one forces you to be a citizen.

    no matter the issue, that is your canned response?

    peoples rights shouldn't be subjected to such a simple majority. slavery wasn't ok just because a majority said it was ok. your explanation is asinine

    How many financially well off liberals don't pay taxes?

    I guess you would rather pay for IRS obscene wasteful spending, because if you pay taxes that's what you're doing.

    Ah, the old blame it on conservatives "look over there" game.

    Lawmakers on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee accused the agency of grossly misusing taxpayer money when it spent at least $4.1 million at the conference on luxury hotel rooms, expensive training videos and outside speakers on topics such as leadership through painting.

    A Treasury report released this week condemned the conference and said $3.2 million of the cost was funded by money set aside to hire enforcement employees.

    Fink on Thursday said the IRS did not keep full records of the Anaheim, California, conference and warned the overall cost could have been as high as $5 million.

    See the hypocrisy in this statement?

    The average American Joe couldn't get away with that.

    You big government idolizers crack me up.

    I don't think you are going to get very far making a morality argument AGAINST charity, if I remember there are some writings about tithing...... and giving unto Ceasar.

    I object to over sixty percent of discretionary spending going to "defense", but then a real perspective on the SNAP spending was not expected.

    PS....you do know that the biggest recipients are poor Whites in the South, were most of those states are not net contributors?

    biblical responses are poor debate, which you seem to excel at.

    How many well off cons don't?

    Who would be defending waste?

    Ah, the old blame it on conservatives "look over there" game.
    I'm sorry, who is trying to change the subject?




    See the hypocrisy in this statement?
    Nope, care to explain?

    The average American Joe couldn't get away with that.
    Non-sequitur, tha average joe doesn't have the IRS budget.

    You big government idolizers crack me up.
    You cons make poor argument.

    I hardly ever make Biblical argument, only when someone starts making morality arguments that conflict with the assumed morality playbook.

    Don't make morality arguments if they make for poor debate.......duh.

    Congress should be forced to spend a month in a poor single mother's shoes.
    Maybe I'm just misreading the OP, but the people targeted by the legislation would be those getting state waivers for not working 20 hours a week
