Sorry about that. I couldn't help myself. To hear all of the pre-election praise from Ohio Democrats for the "anointed one", and his great economy, free "Obama phones", and how he was just needed four more years to really get things going, this is just too rich.
Just one week after being reelected, Ohioan's get a gut check in their morning paper, telling them that they can expect less in benefits come January. You all were on board for "sticking it to the rich" with higher taxes, but the flip side of that coin, the thing Obama didn't tell you, in fact couldn't tell you lest he alienate his brainless base, was this type of thing. Yes, the "rich" may get soaked with higher taxes, but the poor are now going to get hit with fewer "benefits". You know, like food stamps.
The problem is that because the jobs creators are going to have less money, thus create fewer jobs, you will have even less opportunity to escape your conditions. And you can now not do it with even less than you had before! But at least you can bitch about it to your friends on your Obama phones.
Happy days are here again!
Ohioans’ food stamp aid to be reduced Benefit to fall $50 a month starting in January

Ohio families receiving food stamps could get an unwelcome surprise come January: $50 less every month in assistance.
For the 869,000 households enrolled in the program for the poorest Ohioans, that could amount to about $520 million annually out of the grocery budgets.
