Well then, if that's true, we shouldn't hear The NAACP or LaRaza whining about it when the cuts are made!

Not bad! Now put about a 150,000 troops on the US/Mexican border and we can start to get a handle on the DEFICIT.

There's a MAJOR problem in this country! The richest 1% don't have enough money and the Poor has too much so it is the moral duty of the RepubliCONs is to take that money from the poor and give it to the rich!
You're right there is a major problem in this country, it's the socialist...I mean democrap party. Waging class warfare and attempting to divide the united. It's the moral duty of the (R) party to try and show those made dependent on gov't by the socialist...I mean democrap party. That if they truly want to be free. They have to EARN IT! Just like all those evil rich people. The problem with the socialist...I mean democrap party is they don't believe in freedom. They would rather convince some useful idiots like YOU that the reason you're not as well off as those evil rich people, is because they stole it from you. Just out of curiosity are you poor because you had a stash of wealth somewhere, and those evil rich, came in and took it from you? Is that your EXCUSE? Thanks to the socialist party many Americans are convinced that is why they are poor. Fact is the reason many are as dependent on gov't as they are, is because they CHOOSE to be indoctinated into believing they are incapable of succeeding on their own. I'm not rich, I'm not even college educated, but that hasn't kept me from busting my a$$ and working my way up, to eventually owning my own co. Fact is if you are ABLE BODIED there is no excuse for not being able to live a decent life in America. You don't have to be rich, to be happy. Fact is if you are able bodied, and can't make a decent living in America. You damn sure aren't going to make it anywhere else! So quit crying and blaming others for you lack of ambition, poor decisions, whatever, get off you a$$ and do something about it! If I can, anyone can! Tea Party 2012!

That is where you need to pull your head out of nobama's a$$! What part of, there is NOTHING FAIR ABOUT LIFE, DO YOU IDIOTS NOT UNDERSTAND? Ok, lets talk about FAIR. Is it FAIR to take from someone who has devoted their lives to learning a trade or going to college, whatever, and busting their a$$es to get where they are. Then vilify and steal from them to give to some useful idiot like you who THINKS they have been cheated because you CHOSE to sit on your a$$ and be made a victim? Maybe it's because you're just a douchbag who's made a lifetime of bad decisions and feel it's someone elses responsibility to take care of you? Did you have a stash of wealth somewhere, and those evil rich people stole from you, is that happened? Because when you say the rich have stolen from you, that's the ONLY way it can be true! It's parasites like you, causing the problems. Quit crying about how you've been wronged, get off your a$$ and do something about it! Cause I've got news fer ya. You "poor" people think you're poor now. Wait til there are no more rich people to steal from! Then who are you going to blame for your incompetence? Tea Party 2012!

Do you REALLY have to ask that? Do you REALLY believe anyone, even evil (R) want to take from people in LEGITAMATE need? That's the same arguement liberals have been using against (R) on SS and medicare. Yet it's nobama that is stealing $500 BILLION from them to fund nobamacare!

would it be ok if the person who needed some help was also someone who worked 20-30 yrs then found themselves unemployed or homeless? They paid into the system shouldn't they be entitled? There are freeloaders but cutting the programs the way the gop wants to is irresponsible,wreckless and dangerous. All the while giving breaks to the filthy rich.

Dont judge a person until you walked a day in there shoes...I know a guy on social security who is 40. He has a weird lung illness. He looks good and some days he can get around ok..Some days he is on oxygen in bed and can hardly get to restroom.... Some like you might think he could work...But what jobs would let you be sick in bed 2 to 3 days a week..
This system is in place for those who have fallen on hard times dues to unforeseen illness or job loss. It was never intended to be used by able-bodied losers who depend on them because they refuse to pull themselves up by their bootstraps to become self-reliant and personally responsible for themselves and their families. The amount of fraud associated with this program is proabably quite high, however when do the Feds ever go after any of the fraudsters? Too many applicants probably fail to list all income that is actually coming into the household.

it's federally funded and administered by individual states. So if your state gives it to the wrong people how is it the federal governments fault?

No one is entitled to welfare and no one directly contributes to welfare. It is government charity. The only insurance against being unemployed is unemployment insurance which most states guarantee 6 months.

Everyone knows that Tea Party revolutionaries fear and hate socialism about as much as the Antichrist. Which is funny, because the Tea Party movementís dirty little secret is that it owes its existence to the grandaddy of all Antichrists: the godless empire of the USSR.
What few realize is that the secretive oil billionaires of the Koch family, the main supporters of the right-wing groups that orchestrated the Tea Party movement, would not have the means to bankroll their favorite causes had it not been for the pile of money the family made working for the Bolsheviks in the late 1920s and early 1930s, building refineries, training Communist engineers and laying down the foundation of Soviet oil infrastructure.
The Koch family, Americaís biggest pushers of the free-market Tea Party revolution, would not be the billionaires they are today were it not for the whim of one of Stalinís comrades.
Koch pleased his Soviet clients by ensuring top quality and helping the cause of socialism.

look at the name of this thread genius. Gop to cut food stamps. Where does the money come from? Taxes. You pay taxes like a good socialist don't you? So if someone pays taxes they are entitled to reap the benefits of the social programs that are so funded.

Please genius ... show me on your W-2 where it states the amount that you contributed to welfare.

Unlike unemployment (which is listed on your state tax W-2) you do not contribute directly to welfare, and therefore are not entitled to welfare, you only qualify for it as it is charity.

The problem is there are fewer taxpayers contributing to this system. Chances are some of the recipients never have...especially the illegal abusers, err, I meant partcipants as well as those who have made it a lifelong quest to make a living off the taxpayers..

My W-2 also doesn't show a "war tax".

Liberals love to show thier lack of education.

Charity:
1. generous actions or donations to aid the poor, ill, or helpless: to devote one's life to charity.
2. something given to a person or persons in need; alms: She asked for work, not charity.
3. benevolent feeling, especially toward those in need or in disfavor: She looked so poor that we fed her out of charity.
