There is no one in Congress more corrupt, deceitful, and anti-American than Ben Nelson of Nebraska. Ben-dover is the undisputed King of Ethanol corruption. BenGay Nelson has stuffed this bill chock full of kickbacks for himself, his cronies, and the welfare crowd. Benny knows that since his constituents kicked him out of the Senate, that he is going to need all the favors he can get to land a fat lobbyist job in D.C. Not to mention that this TRILLION dollar boondoggle is chock full of welfare handouts. Nelson’s day in court for “high crimes and misdemeanors” is coming soon enough….
|Massive Farm and Food Stamp Bill|
|For the first time in 50 years, it appears the U.S. House will not take up a farm and food stamp bill passed out of committee – and that is a very good thing!
Much like the bill passed by the Senate, the House’s farm and food stamp bill will cost taxpayers nearly $1 trillion over the next decade. How can a farm and food stamp bill cost $1 trillion? Because it funnels subsidies to some agriculture interests and throws cash at unreformed welfare programs like food stamps.
Conservatives – including many principled lawmakers in the House – are taking a stand against this “Soviet-style” bill, in the words of Speaker John Boehner. It’s nothing more than an attack on free enterprise and personal liberty. However, some are now using this summer’s ongoing drought as an excuse to push a five-year farm and food stamp bill through the House. It’s typical Washington – using a “crisis” to expand government and take advantage of the taxpayer.
