    better cash in the food stamps!

    Thanks to George W. and his pals in Congress, over 300,000 family's could be cut from the food stamp program if they receive other government services. But it's not just food stamps, it's a number of food aid programs for the poor.
    Cuts in food programs for the poor are getting support in Congress as an alternative to President Bush idea of slicing billions of dollars from the payments that go to large farm operations.
    But wait, there's more!
    Instead, Republican committee chairmen are looking to carve savings from nutrition and land conservation programs that are also run by the Agriculture Department. The government is projected to spend $52 billion this year on nutrition programs like food stamps, school lunches and special aid to low-income pregnant women and children. Farm subsidies will total less than half that, $24 billion.
    Why am I not surprised that George W. Bush and his Republican comrades are going completely screw the poor! But the White House has got different plans for that money...a war.
