About 900,000 veterans participate in SNAP — the food stamp program the compassionate conservatives just cut. Don’t worry, the same people will fight to keep your World War II monuments open.

There never were any “warm-hearted insurance companies,” just like there never were any warm-hearted businesses. If you want warm hearts, go to a charity. Businesses are there to make money.

When they had the typhoons in the Phillipines, our goverment was sending our tax money there within 36 hours. So let’s see how long it takes these people in Illinois who just got hit with these tornados to get some kind of help from our government.
