The mammoth measure, which took some two years to hash out and endured a collapse of negotiations in 2013, could now be voted on as early as Wednesday in the House of Representatives, the chamber's Republican leaders said.

Afraid that my Rep, a Democrat, will vote in favor of the SNAP cuts. He says he's pro-farmer, but hasn't been a friend to the little ones that I can see. He certainly hasn't been a friend to SNAP recipients.

Petition or not Obama is a dictator now, many should take his sweet words just as Hitler did as he sweet talked those who had no clue to reality what was really being said, He is playing the people for fools, This Country is in so much debt we will never get out of it, Pay raises will not matter becuase everything will cost more anyway so it's going to balance out the very same way. " Hiter" did the same thing., He also used Medical care to control his population and so is this one.

This is a much simpler way to teach the people why this Country is not a free Nation and until the population wake up we will see it get worse and worse. Check out this video.
