    I'll tell you one way that the rich exploit the poor. That is with ghetto food markets. The poor lack transportation to go to place like walmart where the food prices are almost one half as much. The ghetto markets sell rotten food, are usually filthy and have extremely high food prices.

    Another way the rich rob the poor is with payday loans and car loans which usually have at least 300% interest per year.

    Be thankful that we have vets..... they are the ones that bought you the right to shoot your mouth off, most of the time with their blood.... ass hole.
    740 billion dollars spent in Iraq so far. Projected war vet health care 441 billion dollars.

    The second number is legitimate. The first number should have gone to the food stamp program. We do not allow any of our citizens to starve, except for the ones with no mailing address. They dumpster dive. Everyone eats. The religious charities do as much good as they can. Atheists go elsewhere.

I think if they want to save money in the long run, what they should do is be more careful about whom they give food stamps to, but punishing poor families because of a few bad seeds is a very greedy, and bad idea.
    Those responsible for such cuts need to lose their jobs over it.

    So you'd get a 20% drop in corruption, would Pelosi's congress be more transparent then?
