    ThinkProgress » Buried Provision In House GOP Bill Would Cut Off Food Stamps To Entire Families If One Member Strikes


    Want to talk about class warfare?

    The republicans in congress have written into a bill a provision that anyone related to a striking worker will have their food stamps taken away.

    So a single Mom can have her food stamps taken away for trying to strike for enough pay to get off of food stamps.


    The right is full on against ANY workers rights.

    Why do they hate the vast majority of Americans?

    If you choose not to work, why should I pay for you? Honestly TM, do you think anyone should have to be responsible for anything?

    So someone who refuses to work should be getting foodstamps? Why?

    Heck, why do the Feds provide foodstamps anyway?

    I love it, tough love. :lol:

    Wouldn't it be tough love if a worker strikes because the company etc tries to screw them? I guess it isnt tough love then, and we should feel bad for the company trying to screw the worker, but god forbid we stand up for the worker.

    YOu ever wonder why the middle class has been on the decline since you guys started going after unions?

    I don't know, maybe because for every $1.00 that is spent, even more is pumped into the economy.
    I wonder if you guys would have a problem with them cutting food stamps to the military? You do realize many in the military are on food stamps?
    God, forbid the poor try to stand up for themselves.
    :clap2: Bravo, you guys should be so proud!

    I was listening to a radio show yesterday, and one of the callers was just like the rest of you.

    It is alright to pass laws limiting the rights of the people in the unlucky sperm club, but god forbid we pass any law in regards to the lucky sperm club. It is okay to tell a single mom what she can do with her life, but leave the CEO alone.

    no---a striking worker is taking the risk that he or she is indispensable. Sorta silly with the job market the way it is.
