Fury as Democrats cut food stamps to bail out union workers

Nancy Pelosi (pictured) may be anticipating that a Republican could well be Speaker of the House after the November elections.

This, then, could be her "parting shot" as she called the House back from recess to spend more taxpayer dollars - $26 Billion to be exact.

Even Democrats are blasting her spending this time as reported at the link below:

Some Democrats are upset and advocacy groups are outraged over the raiding of the food-stamp cupboard to fund a state-aid bailout that some call a gift to teachers and government union workers.

The bill strips out $12 billion from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, commonly known as food stamps to help fund this "gift to teachers and government union workers."

The food stamp program currently helps 41 million Americans.
