As Twitchy reported earlier, photos of the real, live “faces of hunger” displayed on the House floor today weren’t enough to stop the House from passing its version of the Farm Bill, which would cut $40 billion from the food stamp program over the next 10 years. The bill would also place a three-month limit on able-bodied adults without dependents, unless they could demonstrate that they either worked part-time or were in a workfare or job-training program.

Yeah, how is it fair to expect people on food stamps to find jobs in this economy? P.S. Obama is doing a totally awesome job, by the way. That laser-like focus on jobs is really paying dividends.

MSNBC host Chris Hayes might not have been “physically enraged” by the vote (as he was by the Supreme Court striking down part of the Voting Rights Act), but he was driven to a case of righteous potty mouth.

If it’s any consolation, we go to bed tonight knowing that Hayes made Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz listen to The Coup before tonight’s show.

Speaking of thoroughly shameful sh*t, you remember The Coup, right?

      Obama, members of his adminstration and democratic members of the House as well as democratic members of the Senate and throw in all of the Rinos in both houses and put them on food stamps because they can’t prove they have been working either.

    Chris, just a suggestion:

    Finish puberty before you try on the “Angry Man” persona. It’s just not effective with you right now.

    • junkbondtrader41

      Don’t forget Lawrence O’Donnell’s self-beclowning challenge to fistfight Tag Romney.

      MSNBC is clearly trying to feed a liberal need to feel tough.

        Spot on. Sad that they’re bringing so much wuss into the discussion…

    There is nothing more pathetic than a lame, pasty-white liberal male devoid of testosterone trying to build his “street cred” by throwing around ghetto slang and claiming to listen to rap.


    • Joseph Kurt

      Well, there is the lame, half-pasty-white liberal trying to look tough on foreign policy…but I mostly agree with you.

    Hey stupid (aka @chrislhayes) : The Dem-held Senate’s own version would have also cut it by $400mil/yr.


    • ObamaFail

      If he were to mention that, it would mean admitting that even the Democrats in Congress recognize the amount of fraud and how out of control spending on food stamps has gotten. How can he vilify Republicans if he points out that the Dems want to cut it as well?

    • Jeffrey Jackson
      Scroll down to 2008 and compare it to 2012. The cost of food stamps increased by $40 billion in 4 years. $34.6 to $74.6 billion.

      • Joseph Kurt

        From the CBPP: Average Snap benefit (family of four) = $632/mo at an expense of $80b/yr. That’s $21/day. Republican cuts = $4b/year, or approximately $1/day. So SNAP families go from $21/day to $20. Those draconian GOP bastards. (Sarcasm)

        • Clete Torres

          Evil, EVIL GOP!

        Yep. And 0bama keeps removing obstacles to obtaining benefits, even for those that don’t need it.

  • Maxx

    Distasteful as it was, It should be noted that the Coup’s album cover was created BEFORE 9-11, which made it all the more eery.

    Chris Hayes was also created before 9-11, equally as eery.

    Look on the bright side, Obamacare will save these families $2,500 a year.

    • JesLHW

      Okay, that made me giggle.

  • CobraJet428

    SNAP recipients will now be forced to buy only one LOBSTER instead of two; ribeyes instead of filet mignon.
    The amount of FRAUD is unimaginable! ex: Haitians applying in Mass. and shipping food back to Haiti in 55 gal. drums.

    Maybe this will force states (read:democrats) to cut back on the FRAUD).

    • 0bamasnought

      Only 1 out of 6 dollars gets to the recipient.
      Think about that number.
      If it cost you $6 to handout a $1, how long would you stay in business.

    • lainer51

      and don’t forget my all time favorite — EBT approved Energy drinks. A must-have staple for all households.

  • CombatDiver

    let me get this straight, according to Mrs. Hayes, it is cruel to ask somebody to work for money that is “given” to them and taken from others that are working to provide for their family?

      I think it’s “Miss” Hayes. She and Anderson Cooper aren’t officially married yet.

  • ObamaFail

    There is a lot of food stamp fraud going on in this country, welfare fraud as well. Don’t liberals understand that our economy is in the toilet? And if we can get rid of the fraud, it’d save the tax payers a substantial amount of money if they weeded out the fraud from the real people who NEED food stamps.

    • Rightturn

      Also, corporate fraud. If we could get rid of that we’d be a lot better off as well.

  • LinTaylor

    Chris Hayes: About as intimidating as an attack poodle.

    • NRPax

      Poodles are bred to hunt though and a few of them can back up the attitude. He’s closer to a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, which were bred to be lap dogs.

  • Dee M.

    What is so shameful about this? I and all other non-parasites have to meet certain requirements in order to get money for food, such as: show up for work and do our damn jobs. AND many have to submit to drug testing. So why SHOULDN’T the ones on the government dole have to do the same. This has nothing to do with liberals and democrats caring about “poor” people and everything to do with keeping a bunch of lazy people beholden to them and keeping democrats in office. Too bad we’re not as stupid as they would like to believe we are. It’s time to wake up, people!!

  • Dane Gunderson

    “cruel beyond belief” to cut a program inflated 100% by 5%… you betcha.

    “Work requirements” under conditions of full employment are quite different than w/ mass unemployment and broken labor market.

    Chrissy, didn’t you get the memo from your own network? The economy is roaring, private sector job growth is through the roof and happy days are here again!

  • Axelgreaser

    THINGS HAVE NEVER BEEN BETTER! MSNBC AND THE RODEO CLOWN’S PRESS CENSOR, Jay Corny says so. Am I being lied to? Are the jobs figures not accurate? I mean, O’CrapCare IS deficit neutral, correct? And I can keep my doctor and Bush caused all this so the fact that it just gets worse is his fault, right? And all those Mall shops closing are nothing to be worried about. And the moon is made of green cheese. Right?

    The following sounds like something out of a communist talking points manual, something the ‘Dear Leader’ might have his Chancellor blurt to the serfs as they crawl thru the crowds in a limo: “ATTENTION! ATTENTION! People of Obamrovia…requirements under conditions of full employment are quite different than w/ mass unemployment and broken labor market. I just need another fore! *oops!* We mean four, of course! Hissing to Chauffer…Drive on, they look agitated!”

  • jukin

    Does MSDNC have anybody but ugly lesbians on the air?


    Odd, the economy is recovering nicely when that is the topic of the day. Millions of jobs created!!!!!

    But when food stamps are being discussed, there are no jobs to be had at all.

  • Joe

    Same crap we heard when welfare was reformed. We were supposed to see dead people in the streets and guess what happened?

    People went to work.

    • World B. Free

      Yep, and then the oh-so-smart dog eating POS in the White House undid the reforms, and guess what happened….. record unemployment, prolonged recession, skyrocketing federal debt, etc etc etc.

      But don’t be fooled, it’s all by design.

  • dennis reilly

    Hayes may be receiving food stamps, the stuff he does really isn’t work, look at the guy, how pathetic

  • World B. Free

    Hey, if I was Chris Hayes and had the ratings his show has, I’d be worried too about losing my job soon and having to go on public assistance.

    I cannot believe that Rachel Maddow’s slow-witted twin brother #chrislhayes still has a show.

  • TXKracker

    Is Chris Hayes maybe Racheal Maddows twin sister (fraternal twin), not identical?
    Just curious…she looks like a dude, and he looks like a little bitch.

  • Paul

    yeah, cause 1 out of 6 people in this country are SO POOR that they need assistance buying food. you know, you can’t afford much food when you have two cars, air conditioning, a couple of big screen tvs, multiple cellphones, your kids wear $200 shoes and on and on and on and on.

    oh yeah, forgot about all the illegal aliens who are getting food assistance too. cause you know we gotta advertise in Mexico so the illegals know how to apply for the program as soon as they get across the border.

    and oh yeah, it’s cool that so many people are robbing the system of billions of dollars.. you know all of us who actually pay federal income taxes are all cool with that.

    • JDSoCal

      Meanwhile, Michelle Obama is literally begging people to stop eating so much, as there is an obesity epidemic among the “poor.”
