So Hungry, So Angry

Competing headlines over at Reuters:

House votes to cut $700 mln in food stamps

Senate approves $60 billion tax cut bill

And while I'm not an economist (I don't even subscribe to the magazine) and barely competent in math, I can't help but think that oh, a $59.3 billion tax cut might be enough.

Next time anyone thinks about voting Republican, they need to think about this: "Under the House plan, roughly 165,000 people who now automatically are enrolled in food stamps when they get assistance from welfare programs would lose their food stamps. The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities said the affected people were mostly working families with children."

Because working families with children shouldn't eat.
