Often the words “hypocritical” and “Republican” go hand and hand. After all, these are the people who talk often about “small government” while massively growing government, and claim to be “fiscally conservative” yet seem to always drastically grow our national debt when they control the White House.
So when Kansas Republican Representative Tim Huelskamp mocked people who receive food stamps while his family received millions of dollars in government farm subsidies, I wasn’t shocked.
Rep. Huelskamp had some choice — and tasteless — words for those who rely on food stamps to help feed their families:
“Go pick up trash in a road ditch–you got to do something. There are 3.5-4 million American adults who are able-bodied, have no dependence and what do we require them to do to get a free check for food? Nothing.”
