Republicans / Speaker Boehner Quick Giving Ukraine $1Billion in Aid; Damning Americans Who Need Food Stamps

From the Root

The Republican Party is engaged in class warfare against poor and middle-class white Americans. It is a little-discussed fact but an ironic one worth noting, since those are the very same people who elect them.  ... House Republicans passed a nutrition bill [in 2013] that eliminates $39 billion from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, previously known as food stamps. Nearly 47 million Americans currently rely on SNAP -- roughly 15 percent of the population -- and 17.6 million U.S. households are considered food insecure, which means they aren't sure where their next meal will come from. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (pdf), nearly 17 million of these people are children, 5 million are seniors and 300,000 are elderly veterans.

So why is the Republican Party quick to damn Americans with their needs while being quick to give aid to other people in other parts of the world?  

According to USA TODAY:

Congress has to sign off on the $1 billion in loan guarantees but leaders have said they want to take action against Russia, and have given Obama plenty of advice. House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, pledged to work with the Obama administration "on measures to impose consequences on Russia for its hostile act."

The GOP is still the same.  Quick to fund possible wars with billions of our tax payer dollars while damning single mothers and veterans.   It's time to DUMP THE TEA GOP!
