The House is expected to vote on a farm bill early Thursday. However, many democrats do not support cuts in food stamps. The food stamps program cost 80 billion dollars a year. Do you support cuts in the food stamp program?

Yes, lets get people's attention. The government should not be feeding you. Maybe more voters would be informed.

Some people are unable to fend for themselves whether from disease, mental conditions, or other reasons. We have a social obligation to watch out for each other. I know a cancer survivor on food stamps. He hates it but needs to eat.

Deep cuts ... Not just small cuts in the rate of increase, real cuts.

Some Americans are dependent on the government. It is not the government's responsibility to be a nanny-state. Instead, the government should reduce taxes and regulations, so jobs can be created.

Food, clothing, shelter- basic human needs. Whatever your position on spending, food has got to be one of the toughest things to cut. Somebody's likely to go hungry.

Or someone might have to trade off the cable for food. Tough, but must be done!

Yes, I do see your point. It's just when the cuts are made, the truly needy will suffer while the undeserving get there just desserts. It's a shame the freeloaders take from those who actually need help, even children

Agreed! I don't want people to go hungry, but some are becoming dependent on the government. That is not the American way.
