"The way the program to provide the poor with the bare minimum of daily nutrition has been handled is a metaphor for how the far right in the House is systematically trying to take down the federal government."

The sequestration cuts contain billions of dollars in mandatory budget reductions in programs that help low-income Americans including one that gives vouchers for housing to the poor, disabled, and another that provides fortified baby formula to the poor.

Quote: "I had a dream where hundreds of people were coming to my garage sale and then I recognized that nobody bought even the cheapest of things ... homeless and poor they each wandered off and left me with the realization of what it all had meant!" ...

Everyday it gets harder to think of the whiny Republican hate speech as sheer coincidence. Instead, it's beginning to look inevitable -- so much so that maybe the real question is, What is it about health care that brings out the latent racism in the GOP?
In California, Grandma, the Blind Get IOUs; Politicians Get USD

California will begin issuing IOUs instead of cash due to a budget crisis. Sadly, but not surprisingly, politicians and judges will continue to get greenbacks, while the poor, elderly, and disabled will be stuck with California's new "currency."

Elimination of health and welfare programs would come at a steep price. Tens of thousands of families and children would be stripped of temporary financial help and health assistance, and the state would lose a huge pool of federal money.

Socialism has been in the news for months. Some GOP stalwarts charged President Obama with preaching the heresy. John Boehner, the House minority leader, said Obama's stimulus package was, "one big down payment on a new American socialist experiment."
