Dems Call 1% Cut in Food Stamps Stealing, Irony Hardest Hit

Written By : Duane Lester
February 3, 2014

Frederich Bastiat referred to the forced redistribution of wealth as “legalized plunder.”  It’s legal theft, which is what makes this claim so laughable:

Elected Democrats and movement progressives are up in arms over the meager cuts to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP – commonly known as food stamps). Hot Air’s Erika Johnsen covered the non-drama over the farm bill yesterday and noted the very meager reforms included in the legislation, but some Democrats are bemoaning the $800 million in yearly cuts to SNAP in apocalyptic terms. The overall SNAP program costs $70 billion per year.

Hipster congresswoman Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.) said “Congress has lost its way” and described the farm bill as “reverse Robin Hood legislation that steals food from the poor.” Rep. Adam Smith (D-Wash.) described the 1% of the food stamp budget being cut as “essential nutritional assistance” in a time when SNAP enrollment and spending is at all-time highs. Jim McGovern said that the legislation “increases hunger.”

The only thing more ironic than Democrats calling a decrease in legalized plunder stealing is that one of the knuckleheads doing it is named Adam Smith.
