Robbin' the Hood
In a post titled: "I Fail To See The Connection," Norbizness simply points out to a couple of interesting things. Put them together, you get your values coalition...
(1) Forty-one percent of the tax cuts would go the best-off one percent of all taxpayers, whose average tax cut in 2002 would be almost $27,000 each.
(2) The House Agriculture Committee approved budget cuts Friday that would take food stamps away from an estimated 300,000 people and could cut off school lunches and breakfasts for 40,000 children. The action came as the government reported that the number of people who are hungry because they can't afford to buy enough food rose to 38.2 million in 2004, an increase of 7 million in five years. The number represents nearly 12 percent of U.S. households. (Norbizness)
