Republicans should be ashamed of themselves

I see today the Republican majority is now proposing a $40 billion cut to the food stamp program, along with the intention of gutting Medicare and raising the interest rate for student loans. Someone seems to have lost his way here.

While we give grants to foreign students for college, welfare, food stamps and paid education for illegal aliens, we in turn want to take programs away from U.S. citizens who help pay for all of these programs.

This Congress has done nothing for the people who helped build this country. Why are members so intent on penalizing American citizens? They should be ashamed.
