With House Republicans hell-bent on cutting food stamps, some Congressional Democrats believe they can strike a "compromise" in the upcoming Farm Bill by "only" taking $90/month away from 850,000 poor families.

This is unacceptable, as food stamp recipients are barely struggling as it is. Further, there is far more abuse of public funds in the Farm Billís subsidies to Big Agriculture, which have a higher erroneous payment rate than food stamps and which funnel billions into Wall Street coffers.

Noted & signed. TY, Beverly! I deem nothing else more important than ensuring that our nation's children are adequately fed. As a large majority of the Farm Bill is subsidies to huge corporate factory farms, the least they could do is feed those who have no means of support. The site was welcoming me back; so I have already signed this petition. How far we have not evolved since Dickens' Christmas Carol times

Signed. Seeing a pie chart shows that children who depend on parents, ect are receiving the most from the food stamps. Don't make cuts to growing children's meals.

Done. Also did the survey.

Got a letter from him today. I answered it by telling him he is supposed to be the president of a free people, not a dictator.
