Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) on Thursday objected over and over again in order to keep statements out of the congressional record that accused Republicans of hurting working families by taking food stamps out of the farm bill.Before a vote could be taken on the Republican farm bill that drops the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) — or food stamps — Democrats attempted to voice their unhappiness by inserting statements into the record.
“Mr. Speaker, I ask unanimous consent to revise and extend my remarks in strong opposition to the farm bill rule and the underlying bill because it will increase hunger in America,” Rep. Suzanne Bonamici (D-OR) said.


Although requests to “revise and extend” remarks are routine, Gohmert immediate shouted, “Objection!”

Apparently he is, and if you're a republican that says a lot about your party when you have Gohmert as that position :lamo

Choke off folks that are ripping off the system and everyone wins.
 
Re: Gohmert repeatedly shouts ‘Objection!’ to silence claims food stamp cuts hurt hun

From the article: "“Mr. Speaker, I ask unanimous consent to revise and extend my remarks in strong opposition to the farm bill rule and the underlying bill because it will increase hunger in America,” Rep. Suzanne Bonamici (D-OR) said."

So what she means is, separating the two would require each to stand on it's own merits. Doing so would cut some of the bribery for people to vote for democrats so she is against it. Removing people from the democrat plantation is very upsetting to democrats. They like to keep 'em poor or less than middleclass for a lifetime or just hook them government goodies because. Why if this happens she will lose votes and she doesn't want that.

Way to go Louie. Glad to see my Rep is not just sitting in Congress and not doing something to help the people.

And to think, I only voted for him because his Dem opponent was a Welfare Liberal.

I just Googled, and in addition to Raw Story, Crooks and Liars, Care2.com, and Democratic Underground are very upset.

$28 a week is over a $1000 a year. This should be changed to 40 lbs of rice, 40 lbs of beans, and classes on gardening.

Apparantly Suzanne doesn't understand the House's parliamentary procedure despite having been there for a while now.

So everyone who uses food stamps is ripping off the system?

Did he say that?

Agree, but if you wanted to choke off those ripping off the system, you would not have passed the farm bill at all.

So you are in favor of food stamps then?

The only person who used the term everyone is you. I know first hand of food stamp fraud, and I tried to report it and the bureaucrats forking it over don't care. I'm all for helping people in need. People wo need dietary supplemental foods would do well to eat more rice, beans, and one grown vegetables. With the volumes of money we are talking about they could even establish community gardens / urban farms for people.

So it's ok to hand people money to buy fast food at McDonald's but not ok to subsidize food production which saves money for everyone?

Proves that Republicans have just as much interest in silencing dissent. Unless Gohmert is a Liberal in disguise...hmmmm....

Absolutely. I don't see Republicans wanting to "choke off" the corporations, that get billions in farm subsidies, which most of them don't even need.

Hmm, the latest figures I have for both Welfare and Food Stamp recipients come from Oct. 2012. They show 4,300,000 people on Welfare, and 46,700.000 people getting food stamps. Welfare Statistics | Statistic Brain

Wow, that means 42,400,000 people NOT on welfare use food stamps. Maybe they are all unemployed? Nope, the latest figure from the Bureau of Labor is 11,800,000 unemployed. http://www.bls.gov/news.release/pdf/empsit.pdf

That still leaves somewhere near 30,600,000 people! Must be an awful lot of employed food stamp using cheats out there. We certainly can't need food stamps if people are gainfully employed can we???? :roll:

Well, there was supposedly a Libertarian running. But he never campaigned and didn't even have a website to learn about him. Figured if he didn't care enough to make a minimal effort to inform us about himself, he wouldn't do anything if elected.

Is there 1 person on welfare who is able to perform some labor? If so, that is 1 more than should be on welfare. For those whom are employed, we need a better system to handle them and a lot of them probably need to re-prioritize their spending.

If all your labor earns you in a competitive labor market is eating at a food bank and a space in a flop house, you need to seek better employment and make yourself more valuable, otherwise, I really don't give a damned.

Really? Quit and go "seek better employment and make yourself more valuable," or you don't give a damn? LOL.

My my, well-versed in the job market are we?

You do acknowledge that the government statistics show that 11.8 million Americans are currently unemployed and seeking work, right? Gave you that from the June 2013 Bureau of Labor statistics (which I think are under-valued and a bunch of government propaganda myself).

Well, according to the BLS as of July 9, 2013, there were only 3.8 million total job openings available throughout the USA for those 11.8 million currenlty unemployed. Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey Home Page

Yet YOU want people who are NOT on welfare, but are trying to make ends meet working, to quit and go find "better" employment? Where? People like you seem to think there is a massive hole of open jobs needing to be filled if people would Just... Go. Look! I hope you never lose your job if you are currently employed...(for all I know you might be a retiree). Might wake you the eff up to a little reality. Just saying.

Well, that would depend upon the individual of course. If they have since say, 1960, voted for any pro socialist, job killing, welfare loving Dem, then they are free to look for sympathy in the dictionary. It is located between **** and Syphilis.

If they have not, but have the been the victim of these people, then use the public internet at the library and look up a voting map, go to a liberal area and kill as many of them as you can before being arrested (note: Children don't vote, so no killing them please). In Jail you will receive 3 squares, a cot, free cable/satellite TV and a gym membership. If you are able, the jails are also full of liberals, so feel free to keep killing them. Yes, I know this is a terrible sacrifice and not the optimum situation, however until we end the ravishes of the left in this country, things cannot get better. Should victory and salvation from the evils of the left be achieved, we will do our best to identify you, proclaim you a hero and restore you to a useful existence.
