     - "If the part about cutting the food stamps is true, then it is stunning in its lack of compassion."  quiet.american   Jul-17-10 04:24 PM   #82 
        - So you are saying Obey told a lie? You are really doing that?  madfloridian   Jul-17-10 04:26 PM   #84 
           - You can be assured there is no "stunning lack of compassion" regarding food stamps.  quiet.american   Jul-17-10 04:28 PM   #86 
              - I am backing off, but I believe what Obey said to be true.  madfloridian   Jul-17-10 04:31 PM   #87

  - A good point. One that the elite can't be bothered with.  Jakes Progress   Jul-17-10 05:08 PM   #104 
  - After what Arne did in Chicago taking food stamps away is a natural for him  proud2BlibKansan   Jul-17-10 04:54 PM   #94 
  - Except that the administration has increased food stamps funding.  stevenleser   Jul-17-10 04:57 PM   #98 
     - So if they take it away it goes back to where it was before the increase  proud2BlibKansan   Jul-17-10 04:59 PM   #99 
     - Except that the idea was immediately rejected.  DevonRex   Jul-17-10 05:07 PM   #102 
        - The fact that it was suggested at all should ring a few alarm bells  proud2BlibKansan   Jul-17-10 05:52 PM   #109
