Indecent Proposal: $20 Billion in Food Stamps Cut for a Few Farm Subsidies
The 2013 agriculture bill that was passed in the Senate proposes a few modest but welcome cuts to programs subsidizing big agriculture, but it also insures that millions of the poorest Americans will once again struggle with hunger. Sadly, Democratic Senators like Missouri's Claire McCaskill voted for the bill.

President Obama will spend four more years in the White House defending women's freedom and privacy, and many NARAL Pro-Choice America PAC-endorsed candidates emerged victorious!

A mailing arrived today on behalf of Todd Akin (R-MO) from CitizenLink, an entity associated with the James Dobson founded right wingnut group Focus on the Family.

Akin's Ad Claiming McCaskill Got Rich on Stimulus Money Falls Flat on the Facts

Todd Akin is out with a fanciful new ad. In it he claims that, "federal stimulus spending 'made McCaskill rich.'" (Not to distract from the main point, but wasn't she rich before the stimulus?) Apropos the ad, Akin asserts:
... Claire McCaskill is on record for going through the stimulus line by line, and stated that the stimulus was solely for creating jobs and stimulating the economy, [...]. Now we know that McCaskill's family business received $1 million of taxpayer money from the stimulus bill that she voted for. I voted against this bill because I did not believe it would help the economy and because pork-barrel spending can neither stimulate the economy nor create jobs.
