    The Food Stamp program is administered by the USDA, hence a provision of the Farm bill.

    A sound and appropriate policy, as many receiving Food Stamps are also receiving unemployment and need a phone to search for work. Most employers won’t consider applicants who don’t have a phone number.

    In addition, those disabled and elderly receiving SSI are eligible for Food Stamps, they need phones to set up routine medical appointments or to use in the event of a medical emergency.

    It's impossible to raise a family on minimum wage without food stamps. The majority of those who get food stamps are children. The majority of those families who get food stamps are working.

    Republicans want to cut school lunches. The seem to care so much about the fetus, but when it comes to children? Not so much.

    Is that how the left thinks?

    "By God, give them cell phones, food stamps and health insurance, but don't you dare ask them to present an ID when they vote!"

    Oh no! A fox news link!

    Corporate welfare in the federal budget costs taxpayers almost $100 billion a year in direct subsidies, tax breaks, and all kinds of creative loan programs.

    Corporate Welfare Costing Taxpayers $100B a Year - Blog - The Willis Report with Gerri Willis - Fox Business

    Social welfare is a drop in the bucket compaired to all the give a ways to the corporations. But in the minds of the radical right:

    A few pennies to the poor = Baaaaaaaaaad

    A boatload of taxpayer money to the richest of the rich = Goooooooood
