Are Politicians Who Cut Food Stamps and Deny Health Access Truly ‘Pro-Life?’ - Joe Conason http://t.co/kgkDmAl7TA

@gopTODD No silly, but the Nov.1st cuts harm disabled, kids,Vets & seniors.HB3102 will be devastating http://t.co/BUgPccJ50Z @brucelesley
Todd Weiler @gopTODD
@BallerinaX @brucelesley Or did Congress merely end a temporary expansion from 3 years ago designed for the recession??? #Hmm
ballerina X @ballerinaX
@gopTODD The expansion expired on it's own, hence temporary. Poverty & hunger have not expired however http://t.co/FHoxGpbzeN @brucelesley

@gopTODD @BallerinaX With 22% of children living in poverty, I would say now is not the time to allow nutrition for kids to “expire”

@gopTODD Down from 10% to 3.5% in last 10yrs. Most fraud occurs at retail level & not by beneficiaries http://t.co/iggQapV28w @brucelesley

@BallerinaX @brucelesley I'm not losing sleep over a 4.9% cut phased in over 10 years. #SNAP

@gopTODD You are blessed. The long term effects of poverty on children, including loss of sleep, impact their whole lives. @brucelesley
Todd Weiler @gopTODD

@gopTODD @BallerinaX @brucelesley You're not losing sleep cause you have enough money to feed yourself and your family - others not so much
Bruce Lesley @BruceLesley
@gopTODD @BallerinaX And the cuts do nothing whatsoever about fraud. They just hit low-income kids, seniors, the disabled, and Vets.
Todd Weiler @gopTODD
@BallerinaX @brucelesley And you believe that food stamps is ending poverty?
ballerina X @ballerinaX
@gopTODD Of course not silly.SNAP IS reducing food insecurity for children, disabled,veterans.seniors & working families. @brucelesley
Bruce Lesley @BruceLesley
@gopTODD @BallerinaX It lifts some families out of poverty, alleviates it for others, and more importantly, helps families feed their kids.
Bruce Lesley @BruceLesley
@gopTODD @BallerinaX And the combo of the Nov. 1 reduction and the $40 billion in cuts proposed by the House will cut many families by 100%.
Todd Weiler @gopTODD
@BallerinaX @brucelesley Which is why we're still spending $800 Billion ....
Todd Weiler @gopTODD
@utahcare @brucelesley @BallerinaX under Bush, we had 26 million people on food stamps. Today, it's 48 million and growing.
Todd Weiler @gopTODD
@electrcspacegrl @brucelesley @BallerinaX we've doubled the # of food stamp recipients under Obama. He says the recession is over. So ...
Todd Weiler @gopTODD
