Pity the poor


Well, Happy New Year. At least for the people in Washington who are getting raises in their pay.

Food prices are going up-up-up and the government starting this month is cutting food stamps. I don’t get food stamps, but I know a lot of people who do. Three families I know got cut $30. They could not even make their stamps last all month with the cut they will never be able to feed their children.

I do not understand why the cut in food stamps and food prices are going higher each day.

What is wrong with this picture? The rich get richer and the poor get poorer. Why? Our government stinks. They don’t care about the poor people.
