As a retired military officer who was fortunate enough to never have to depend on food stamps, I thank the Republican Congress for going after those 5,000 junior enlisted families getting food stamps on our tax dollars. Who do these military folks think they are? They are truly the 47 percent that Mitt Romney identified as not taking personal responsibility for their own welfare.
Besides, they can’t use the food stamps in the combat zones anyway, so what’s the big deal? Once again, the GOP shows its patriotism by saving money, not from taxes on the rich, but more burdens on the poor.
