Nadler: GOP Wants People to Starve

They just want people to starve and it’s disgusting.

— Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY), quoted by Politicker, on the Republican approach to the farm bill.

Poetic Justice

Vote Your Stomach!

They’re hoping 4 million voters
Who happen to to be eaters
Will simply be too weak to vote in the 2014 polls.

— Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), quoted by National Journal, on the debate for funding food stamps.
