Food Stamps

Via Southern Beale on 15 June, a great quote about balancing the federal budget:

Horrible person Rand Paul’s effort to drastically cut food stamps was smacked down by the Senate, failing 65 to 33. Said Sen. Frank Lautenberg,
“Hungry children didn’t cause the recession or the deficit, and cutting food stamps will not solve our debt problem,” he said. “But hungry children don’t have lobbyists, so programs like food stamps end up on the Republican chopping block.”

Amen, brother!
