No food stamps for you (or your kids)

If you're a striking worker and the GOP gets there way (and let's be
honest, it's not like we have a labor supported democratic president
to stop this visciousness). You allready can't get food stamps for
yourself if you're in an academic college program (you can for your
kids though). So let's add another class of 'bad' poor people to the
list of folks who should starve to death. Poor college students who
try to rise above their station by getting an actual degree instead of
a technical certificate, striking union families who try to rise above
their station by demanding fair compensation. Man, it seems like the
only thing you get when you actually do pull yourself up by your boot
straps is an empty plate.
