[su_thin_right_skyscraper_ad]They’d better not buy any beer, Or party favors. Or candy. Or ANYTHING with their money, Anomaly writes.

Freshman Rep. Glenn Grothman (R-Wis.) reportedly said at a town hall in his district last week that constituents should monitor purchases made with debit cards from Food Share, which is Wisconsin’s name for the federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, the Huffington Post reports…

“I would argue some people are arranging their life to be on Food Share,” Grothman said.

And I would argue that members of Congress aren’t doing their jobs.

Let’s all spy on poor people who receive benefits so that we can make them feel intimidated, humiliated and threatened, because freedom.

Grothman is known for controversial statements, such as, “You could argue that money is more important for men.”

Or when he called Kwanzaa,”the supposed African-American holiday celebration.”

Nice man.

    Wow, I do not understand how they can feel such contempt for people, being poor does not give anyone the right to denigrate and marginalize someone

    Unmarried with no children writing bills regulating/Denigrating women and children.

    I wish these GOP lawmakers would show the same zeal against contractors, corporations, and billionaires who take federal money in uneeded tax cuts, subsides and direct payments.

    Huh??? I thought SNAP benefits could only be used for stuff it covers and you had to pay for things like detergent or brillo pads. Doesn’t it only cover products you can eat???

    • whatthe46 February 25th, 2015 at 12:35 am

      yep. you’re right. the only food it won’t cover is hot food. (prepared)

    Well, the lesson here is to not shop in Wisconsin Grocery Stores… Long lines aren’t bad enough, now you gotta deal with rancorous confrontations in those same lines.

    Before you know it, he’ll be blaming gypsies, tramps and thieves.

    Another freaking wannabe Nazi, every other day or two another GOP political type tries to be a wannabe Nazi. What’s with that, you would think that after all this time they would run out of morons making noise but nooooooo, they got plenty.

    I remember a lecture on bankruptcy in law school, when students began pummeling the professor with questions, incredulous that the law allows — hell, favors — executives who ran the company into the ground in the first place getting guaranteed seven-figure compensation while the company struggles with insolvency, at the expense of rank-and-file pensions and ordinary creditors. The professor embarked on a long expose on how Chapter 11 bankruptcy is basically a legalized raid on a company (that’s why the filings go up when the economy is good, contrary to what you would expect). One thing in particular stuck with me. He mentioned that not only are the meetings between company executives and the creditors’ committee catered, but they are the BEST-catered meetings in the industry. “Help someone who’s loaded take over another company, and you get the usual brie and grapes. Prepare papers saying the company can’t pay its workers, you get bagels with caviar. And if you say something about it, you get the standard whaaaa, you are a communist, catering meetings creates jobs, etc.”

    So here is the better alternative: let’s keep tabs on what the biggest recipients of taxpayer largesse are eating: the corporate bankrupts and the executives of companies that we’ve had to bail out. Because if they are eating anything better than gruel on our dime, I think some criminal prosecutions are in order.

    But if a doctor asks a patient if there are firearms in their home, these same people throw a fit. Feeding children = bad. Giving children guns = good.

    Upside down morality at its finest.

      When Jesus was in the desert, would he have renounced his Father, had Satan offered him an assault rifle instead of bread? I wish gun-gun-happy evangelicals would weigh in on this.

    ah, a freshman flexing his stupidity… another Snot Walker wannabe.
