Mail: No more cuts for food stampsTell North Platte what you think
 

Last year’s $5 billion food stamp cuts have slammed low-income Americans so hard that food pantries and soup kitchens are running out of food. Seriously.

But despite these devastating cuts, Democrats and Republicans are nearing a deal on a farm bill that would cut another $9 billion from food stamp benefits.

This horrific news proves that private charity cannot compensate for food the stamp cuts that have alreaey taken effect – let alone another, even deeper round of cuts.

We need to make sure that every member of Congress gets the message that any cuts to food stamps is absolutely unacceptable.

Register to vote in 2014. Listen to what Dave Domina would do if elected to the U.S. Senate. Vote 2014. Vote in the primary election and vote in the general election.

Think about good men and women from the GOP and Democratic party who have served Nebraska and this One Nation.
