They never stop. They never stop trying to harm the least of these in this society.
Never ever forget:
The Cruelty IS the Point
As one of our loyal posters points out, they’ll do this, and then turn around talking about ‘ how good the economy is…there are 3 million less people on food stamps’. And, of course, we don’t have a MSM interested in telling the truth. They’ll find some dumb azz Dolt45 voters who will praise them, because ‘ the right people are being hurt’.

The Trump administration moved to end food stamp benefits for 3.1 million people, the day after the president reached a deal with Democrats to raise federal spending by tens of billions of dollars for the next two years.
The proposed rule curtailing food assistance, announced Tuesday, drew a sharp rebuke from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who called it an “act of staggering callousness.”
“This proposal perfectly showcases the Republicans’ cynical special interest agenda that gives billion-dollar handouts to big corporations and the wealthy few, and then steals from children, veterans, seniors and working families to make up the difference,” Pelosi said.
Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue said the administration acted to restrict states’ ability to automatically enroll beneficiaries of some federally funded welfare programs because many state governments “have misused this flexibility.”
“We are changing the rules, preventing abuse of a critical safety net system, so those who need food assistance the most are the only ones who receive it,” he added.
About 9% of all households currently receiving food stamps and 13.2% of all currently participating households with at least one elderly member will lose the assistance, the Agriculture Department projected in a regulatory impact analysis.

EXCLUSIVE: The Trump admin determined that more than 500,000 kids could lose free school lunch/breakfast under the USDA’s new plan to crack down on food stamps…but didn’t mention that fact when the plan actually came out, @BobbyScott tells me. https://t.co/lZDBzsIKkl https://twitter.com/SuzyKhimm/status/1155841366666162176?s=17
