Have you been following the failures of the Republicans in the House of Representatives?
Yesterday, in a vote on a farm bill that would have cut help to farmers and cut the SNAP program for the poor, Rep. Steve Stivers (OH-15th) voted in favor of HR 1947. Yes, folks, Stivers voted to cut food aid to the poor. Joining Steve Stivers in supporting this disastrous bill were John Boehner (OH-8), Bob Gibbs (OH-7), Bill Johnson (OH-6), David Joyce (OH-14), Bob Latta (OH-5), Jim Renacci (OH-16), Pat Tiberi (OH-12), and Mike Turner (OH-10).
These members of the House might say that they care for all Americans but it appears that they care only about the 1%. With 16 million American children not getting adequate food, we've got to help the vulnerable, and hungry in our country. Good, healthy food helps children succeed in school, and be more productive in life. Why are so many Republicans against hungry children?
