One in Four American Children Are on Food Stamps

And the Republicans want to take it away:

“This is craziness,” said Representative John Linder, a Georgia Republican who is the ranking minority member of a House panel on welfare policy. “We’re at risk of creating an entire class of people, a subset of people, just comfortable getting by living off the government.”

Mr. Linder added: “You don’t improve the economy by paying people to sit around and not work. You improve the economy by lowering taxes” so small businesses will create more jobs.
But, hey, it's okay. Surely the answer lies in the middle! Sure we can't kill them, but we can just starve 'em a little.

(No, I can't wait to see what the blue dogs will do to the jobs bill either.)
