Newly Elected Republican Senators Sign Pledge to Eliminate Food Stamp Program in 2015

One hundred percent of newly elected Republican Senators have agreed to vote to eliminate the food stamps program including;

Senators Cory Gardner (R-Colo.), David Perdue (R-Ga.), Joni Ernst (R-Iowa), Thom Tillis (R-N.C.), Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), James Lankford (R-Okla.), Steve Daines (R-Mont.), Mike Rounds (R-S.D.), Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.), and Ben Sasse (R-Neb.).

“Small businesses and the American people cannot afford President Obama’s countless new regulations and tax increases. There is a right way and a wrong to improve our country’s welfare system, and the President’s policies just aren’t working. We need to put poor people first and lower costs,” Senator Gardner said in a statement.

6. Some seem to ignore that the "deal" has always been the agricultural supports for the food stamp

program. They might see that they can not pass the agricultural budget without that agreement. There are Republicans against BOTH - and if Democrats hold to demanding the SNAP program, their votes may well be needed.

Interesting example where a coalition with the Democrats may be needed. Looking at the states, I bet that had some taken this position pre election, they would not be Senators elect.

The next two years will be ugly.
