Not all things are ” inevitable”—–Some good stuff here in this Heritage Report
Posted July 10, 2013on:
I hope you read this Heritage article because so many people think that once a law becomes a law it is set in stone—–NOT SO. But this is how most liberals now feel about Obamacare and they are so fast to throw it in our faces that “it’s the law so get over it!”
Well it may be the law but laws have been changed and destroyed before and this abomination will be too.
Also in this report is the shocking fact that there are now 101 million people getting free food from the tax payers. That is 101 million people out of our nations population of 316 million people who are living off of the government dole. There are only 97 million workers in the United States so there are now more free loaders than workers. i am all for helping the poor and feeding the hungry but I can not, and will not!, believe that there are 101 million hungry or poor people in the United States. This is especially true when I live in a “nice” community and know for a fact that 5 of my 15 closest neighbors are on the government dole for food stamps and a whole lot of other government handouts. They certainly are living better than I can afford to! But this was the plan of those who want to over throw our country: overload the welfare rolls until you have more takers than givers because the takers will keep voting in office those who keep giving them handouts and then the country will go bankrupt and fall. the corrupt and communist will be there to pick up the pieces and remake America.

Don’t you love it when the conventional wisdom gets turned on its head?
What was supposed to happen in Washington a couple of weeks ago—passing the pork-laden food stamp bill known as the “farm” bill—didn’t happen.
The special interests expected it to happen. Most of official Washington expected it to happen. But Heritage and our allies made the case that food stamps and farm programs don’t belong together in one big, fat bill.
Taxpayers deserve better. They deserve transparency about how their money is being spent—and bloated programs desperately need an overhaul.
Now, the House has a chance to get it right—and splitting the actual farm-related programs from the food stamps is only the first step.
Breaking the farm programs and food stamps into two bills is a start—but then the House needs to start over. Why does the “farm” bill need a Christmas tree tax? Why does it support driving up consumer food prices?
The food stamp program has its own problems. As Heritage’s Elliot Gaiser points out, “Food stamp rolls have also been climbing for decades, regardless of the economic situation.” This program is supposed to help people get back on their feet, not steer them toward dependence on government.
Want to hear from a fourth-generation farmer? At 11:30 a.m. ET today, Representative Marlin Stutzman (R), a farmer from Indiana, will speak at Heritage’s Bloggers Briefing, which you can watch live here. He will make the case for splitting farm programs and food stamps.
