46M in Poverty, 44M on Food Stamps – but, GOP Wants $9B Food Stamp Cut

Isn’t Alabama One of the Poorest States in the Union? A record number of Americans are in poverty and using food stamps. So, of course, some in Congress would like to cut a program assisting the poor. Nevermind that keeping the Bush tax cut extension costs $400 billion a year and $4 trillion over 10 years.  The first proposed cut came in the Ryan Budget in April 2011 to the tune of a $127 billion cut (over 10 years).  Now, the most senior Republican Budget Committee member, Se. Jeff Sessions, wants food stamps cut by $9 Billion dollars (a year?).  Note that the same Sen. Sessions supports paying $400 billion per year to preserve the Bush tax cuts for high income Americans.
