In other news, the Republican-controlled House Agriculture Committee voted today to advance $33 billion in cuts to food stamps (SNAP). According to recent numbers, food stamps have reduced poverty by 8 percent and are directly stimulative for the economy.

And speaking outside of the binary -- go stand in line at the grocery behind a single mother with a baby who is paying for food with food stamps and then tell me we should vote to end them immediately. If you can do that, you aren't human.
