This just proves that our elected officials only care about their wealthy pals and nothing about the people they are supposed to be serving. This is also another real good reason why the average person should get involved in what their representatives are doing.

I say if it is WASTE cut it! There is no logical reason to just spend taxpayer money without it providing something essential. If it is not a good investment then do not do it... like everything Obama has done... WASTEFUL spending, almost entirely!

To date, 7 million people lose their healthcare, 50 thousand sign up for Obamacare. GREAT? less that 10% of the enrollees needed but way more than we were told would lose, if you like your plan...

If the editorial was about food stamps readers would be in an uproar; but, no one cares because the people who get farm support are all white people. Racist much Fulton County?

FC farmer subsidies were about $300K in 2012 while they were $1.5 million in MC during the same period. To see who gets what locally, go to "farm dot ewg dot org/" and navigate the site.

TOT...study, or at least have someone read it to you, the Constitution. Obama didn't appropriate those funds, Congress (yes regressives too) did!

CBS new poll says Obama down to 38% approval rating. It is very hard to believe that 38% of Americans are so disconnected from what the liar in chief is doing!

No amount of money is enough when it comes to progressive spending. Progressives didn't treat the people that wanted to get this president to start to spend fairly. The president shut the country down to avoid fiscal corrections! One of witch could have made him a genius instead of an incompetent leader! (the year individual mandate delay)
