'pinky' reid Again "The Obstructionist!"
With the U.S. Senate in deliberations on the next 'farm bill--S. 3240--(with the delusionary title: Agriculture Reform, Food and Jobs Act of 2012)' harry 'pinky' reid will play obstructionist in deciding which amendments will come to the floor for debate. The amendment with the most importance to conservatives, the "Tea Party" Movement, is Senator Rand Paul's which would change the administration of Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) funds to block grants to the states.
Senator Paul's amendment--S. Amdt 2177--would require the individual states to administer their own SNAP grants. Each state would establish it's own eligibility requirements as well as monitoring and enforcement procedures. This amendment--which failed, 65-33--would have reduced the welfareRAT income source by $280 Billion "over-ten-years" by freezing funding at the current level of $45 Billion a year.
Although my senators (C. Ellis Schumer and Kirstin "The Invisible Senator" Gillibrand) are communists from New York, 'The Welfare State,' I intend to inform them of my plans to insure they find retirement or unemployment!! Hopefully, you'll do the same if your senator(s) voted against this amendment!!
