With this being a Republican state, I sure felt the pinch of moving to be near the cancer center and good doctors. Apparently this state is different for disabled people. Here, even though I am at poverty level and my rent is more than half my income of Social Security, I am not eligible here for the full allotment of food stamps.

In Montana, people get full allotments until they hit poverty level, but not here. I called Community Action Program, and it has been cut drastically with many people losing their jobs. Republicans have pushed out their propaganda to make the poor vote against their own interests.

Meanwhile the poor in this country starve, with food prices rising and food stamps cut and dished out unfairly to people in poverty. If the poor do not wake up and fight for themselves, I hate to say it, but they deserve what they get. It is very simple: Republicans stand for the very, very wealthy. Democrats have tried to stop their taking from the people in severe poverty. Wake up, sheeple.
