Nov. 7, 2013 Rolling Stone

On Nov. 7, 2013 Rolling Stone’s Elizabeth Drew wrote “GOP vs. The Poor” about how the Republican party threw 3.8 million poor people off of food stamps. Because of the economic collapse during the Bush Administration there was a dramatic increase in newly poor Americans applying for food stamps. US Congressional Representative Eric Cantor and fellow Representative Steve Southerland rigged a normally bipartisan farm bill to increase hunger among the poor. They sought advice from the Secretary’s Innovation Group or SIG and The Heritage Foundation. The Heritage Foundation is funded by Allstate insurance, Boeing, Koch brothers, Lockheed Martin, GlaxoSmithKline, Pfizer and others.
