136. You and the media are leaving out the fact that a food stamp cut to
a temporary program based only on wishful thinking will hurt millions of poor people. That apparently is an example of "humanity". What about the senate bill to fund the first lady's program which cuts food stamps further. I guess if a little "humanity" is good, might as well go for some more.

Obama refers to himself as a new democrat. New Democrat = DLC = neo lib = free trade/globalism.

Attempting to defend a cut in the food stamp program regardless of whether the program was temporary or permanent without reporting the very real consequences for those who will suffer under these cuts, while spinning the "humanity" of the cut and trying to pass it off as a minor tech fix is bullshit.
