This week the House voted to cut food aid to needy Americans by $40 billion over the next ten years. Back in July, the House passed a farm bill that raised subsidies to farmers and agricultural corporations by billions of dollars. If there is a clearer example of the hypocrisy of the Republican members of the US House of Representatives, I would be shocked. These are the so called “deficit hawks” who believe the government that spends least, governs best. Yet they voted to give more money to rich people, and in the process drive food prices higher?
Someone please explain. (And by “someone,” I mean Mike Dawson, Richard Dawson, or anyone else I know who tends to vote Republican.)
