House Republicans Vote to Throw 300,000 Kids off Food Stamps In Order to Cut Taxes for Millionaires

House Republicans passed John Boehner’s DOA Plan B 215-209-1, but what is important is how Republicans tried to fool America into cutting taxes for millionaires by throwing 300,000 kids off food stamps.

Before the House could even vote, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, let them know that it didn’t matter what they passed because the Senate would not be voting on it. White House Press Secretary Jay Carney called Plan B an exercise in futility, “Plan B, which is the only thing the House of Representatives, the Republicans in the House, are focused on right now is a multi-day exercise in futility at a time when we do not have the luxury of exercises in futility. The Speaker and his lieutenants have spent days trying to twist arms and wrangle votes within their own conference. It’s an exercise in Republican vote counting that will not result in anything for the American people. It cannot pass the Senate. The President would veto it if it got to his desk.”

  • Corporate welfare instead of helping the poor (and giving them a return of their investment IE: “taxes”) – Military funding instead of peace money – all in a day’s work. Meanwhile…. the Federal Reserve (not federal and has no reserves, ah hem) is printing / loaning into circulation $85 Billion a month. This is loaned to themselves at ZERO interest and inflated times 10 using fractional reserve lending, and discount windows. – how was your day?
