Missouri Republicans hate the poor, similar to Kansas’ hatred of the poor. But they’re trying to take it one step further. And hit welfare recipients where it hurts, their stomachs.
A new bill in Missouri could ban food stamp purchases of “cookies, chips, energy drinks, soft drinks, seafood or steak.”
So what’s exactly the issue with steak? Would they rather people eat frozen steaks? As opposed to fresh steak? Will they also ban ground beef? Because technically that’s steak as well. Seafood? You’re meaning to tell me, only non-welfare recipients should have access to healthy salmon and other fish?
What in the world is wrong with these people?
What did poor people ever do to them? Besides keeping them employed?
And then you have the people of the ilk, “If I can’t afford it, they shouldn’t be able to either.”
What’s your life looking like, if you’re not on welfare and can’t afford a piece of steak? Even if it is the cheap parts? Don’t blame the poor people for your inabilities to maintain.
If this ludicrous bill is passed, it would go into effect July 1.
Missouri Republicans, I’ll say a prayer and hope you’re never a welfare recipient.
