Ryan's plan, that is, the Republicans' plan, would eviscerate food stamp program, too

Tucked away in the final quarter of Rep. Paul Ryan's budget manifesto is yet another proposal for dismantling the legacy of the New Deal and Great Society programs that have been on the right-wing's hit list since they were first enacted. The target this time (p. 41) is food stamps or, as the program is now known, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. Over the past 47 years, no thanks to the 92 percent of Republicans in Congress who voted against it, the program has prevented massive hunger in America.,-that-is,-the-Republicans-plan,-would-eviscerate-food-stamp-program,-too

By "innovative approaches to delivering aid' could Ryan mean the good old days back in the '60's when people stood in line for commodities?

The reason republicans come up with budgets like this is to take people's eye off the ball. If one of them had to run on their voting records and all the spending they have done was in the public day in and day out, people might just start waking up. That's why they demonize different groups, because they don't want to actually have to talk about the way they have helped destroy this Country and the people in it. They sure don't want to address their unfunded wars and the fact the debt ceiling limit was raised inside their bank bailout bill in 2008. No, they don't want that, so they create hate among different people to take the limelight off themselves.
