Scuzzbuckets of the Week

I am really at a loss as to how the GOP thinks. They continuously try to kill the Affordable Care Act (AKA Obamacare). I heard somewhere that they have fought the plan - which is now the law - over 45 different times. And the cost of their temper tantrums is unimaginable.

Their latest move is to slash Food Stamp funding in order to effort to effort to "pare the cost and size of government by reducing federal spending." As if there aren't any other alternatives to cut federal spending.

The map below shows Food Stamp averages by state for 2012. Not all Food Stamp recipients are living on the government dole, as some like to think of them. The average Food Stamp monthly benefit in 2012 is $133 per month. Yeah, that's sure dragging down government spending


Food stamp monthly averages 2012 participation in SNAP, as a percent of total state population

Here - by state - are the names of those people who voted to cut $39 million dollars over the next decade for Food Stamps.
