President Trump just trimmed the fat by taking 700,000 people off food stamps. It’s a great achievement that will save billions of dollars but it comes at a price because of the heartlessness of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, who insisted, against Trump’s protests, that military families be included in the cuts before she would allow it to pass.
When Trump drafted the bill, he had specifically excluded the families of military personnel. Upon her review, Pelosi immediately jumped upon that exception, saying that the House would not allow it unless “everybody suffered equally.” In the end, active duty military were reluctantly included so that the much needed savings could be realized.
Nancy Pelosi is as cold as they come. One can see by the state of the streets in her California district that she doesn’t care about her constituents. Now we know that she cares about nobody at all.
