    Is that the same program that had parents suing schools for taking away kins home prepared meals, and making them eat a school prepared meal, because they didn't meet the government sanctioned requirements?
    The left says the right is full of racists and bigots and have no tolerance. Nobody from the right organizes interference with gay pride parades, or other leftist events. The left however always has a group interfering with events organized by the right. Who are the tolerant ones I ask? Most certainly not the left.

    It should be noted that Republicans hate the poor of every color. What is mystifying is why do so many poor whites vote against their own self interests. This issue is addressed in Thomas Franks excellent book What's the matter with Kansas. https://www.amazon.com/Whats-Matter-...s%2C161&sr=8-1

    It is extremely difficult to get a GOP Senator to accept something when their salary depends upon not accepting it.

    How about a single example, linked, and explain why it should be considered.
    It's either a fact or not. It's not a "viewpoint" or opinion. The House either passed 350 bills and sent them to the Senate or not.

    Here are a few of them:
    H.R. 1: For the People Act -- policies that help secure elections from foreign interference and make them more accessible to voters.
    H.R. 5: The Equality Act -- seeks to provide comprehensive anti-discrimination protections for LGBTQ Americans in employment, education, federal funding, housing, public accommodations and more.
    H.R. 6: The American Dream and Promise Act -- would protect young immigrants who came to the U.S. illegally as children — known as Dreamers — and establish a path to citizenship for more than 2 million immigrants without legal status.
    H.R. 7: The Paycheck Fairness Act -- includes provisions that would prohibit employers from asking about prospective employees’ salaries, forbid retaliation against employees who compare wages and mandate employers show that pay discrepancies are based on legitimate factors.
    H.R. 8: The Bipartisan Background Checks Act -- the legislation seeks to expand background check requirements on private sales, including those at gun shows, on the internet or through classified ads.
    H.R. 9: The Climate Action Now Act -- would block the Trump administration from exiting the Obama-era Paris climate agreement. Many recognized the legislation’s limited scope but said they hoped it would be the first of many pieces of legislation introduced in the House seeking to combat climate change.
    H.R. 987: The Strengthening Health Care and Lowering Prescription Drug Costs Act -- The bill seeks to lower prescription drug prices, bolster the Affordable Care Act and protect care for those with pre-existing conditions.
    H.R. 1585: The Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act -- Congress had allowed the act, which provides funding and grants for several programs that tackle domestic abuse, to lapse in February when it was left out of a spending bill ending a partial government shutdown.
    H.R. 1644: The Save the Internet Act -- The bill would reverse the Federal Communications Commission’s party-line vote in 2017 to repeal net neutrality, shorthand for the Obama-era rules prohibiting broadband companies from blocking, throttling or prioritizing certain websites.

    Here are all of them (389 bills and 151 resolutions):

    The bottom line is that Trump wants to cut over $5 billion from SNAP (Food Stamps) while giving farmers who are being hurt by his tariffs $16 trillion in handouts.

    Re: Trump, Who Slashed Taxes by $1.5 Trillion, Is Pushing Cuts to Food Stamps

    Here's a good example of progressive fuzzy logic:

    Under current rules, SNAP recipients would continue their current work patterns. In contrast, with a lower threshold, the “tax” on their earnings at the cutoff would be so substantial that recipients would likely cut back on their hours worked in order to maintain eligibility. A similar scenario holds for the asset test — people would be forced to spend down their assets or not accrue assets in order to maintain eligibility. I don’t think it is the intention of the Trump administration to discourage work and savings, but that would likely be the outcome.
    Only a liberal would define the reduction of a benefit funded with money taken from "the rich" as a "tax."
