Another Pint of Blood

Where do you even start to preface a story like this?

The class war continues apace in the halls of congress. The fucking vampires truly are going to try and suck the last pint of blood, aren't they?

Congress May Cut Food Aid, Not Farm Aid:

...Republican committee chairmen are looking to carve savings from nutrition and land conservation programs that are also run by the Agriculture Department. The government is projected to spend $52 billion this year on nutrition programs like food stamps, school lunches and special aid to low-income pregnant women and children. Farm subsidies will total less than half that, $24 billion.

Senate Agriculture Committee Chairman Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga., said the $36 billion food stamp program is a good place to look for savings...

It's gonna be a long, hot summer I think.
