Right on. I posted the same thing before I read yours.
The question is NOT "What can Congress do about it?" The question is: Why WON'T Congress do anything about it? Because the Tea Party is a bigger threat to the GOOP than the Dems...

We should have nuked Korea in the 50's like MacArthur said; following that up by nuking China. There would be ONE superpower today---us.

We wouldn't want the US to go to war against a country that could actually fight back would we?

Ask the Blood diamond miners and Cocoa producers in Africa how they like Capitalism. Better yet, ask the American Indian how he liked giving up ALL his land, possessions, and life because he did not have a piece of paper. Capitalism is DOG eats DOG. A constant competition to be on top, and the insatiable taking and using of FINITE natural resources. It is NOT a free market; it is dominated by the Oligarchs who now rule our country. WAKE UP.

What must I do to obtain Eternal Life?, the rich man asked. "Keep the Commandments," Jesus said to the RICH Wall Street Broker. "This I have done my whole life' replied the CEO of the world's largest bank. "Sell all that you have and give it to the Poor; then you can follow me." Yeshua HaMashiah COMMANDED. The man sadly departed; as he was VERY rich---and did not want to share through voluntarily giving...

What the hell is a "free market"? Getting arrested for selling lemonade on the corner? The "Free market" only exists as an illusion; just like freedom of speech, the 2nd Amendment, and the Republic. We are an Oligarchy now. Pay your fees, get your licenses, insurance, bonds, et al and we MAY let your into the "Free Market".

I am against reducing SNAP benefits (generally speaking) for US citizens... Does everyone understand that illegal aliens (called un-documented non-citizens in government speak) are entitled to receivce the same benefits as US citizens the very minute they sneak across the border into the eligibility office? Worse, they do not have to provide a SS number like US citizens do. That is where the battle should be fought. Further, since they can't legally work; a work for benefits program would not apply to them...
