Rep. Kevin Cramer (R-ND) on Friday responded to a constituent opposed to drastically cutting food stamps for the young, elderly and poor by citing a Biblical quote: “If anyone is not willing to work, let him not eat.” [...]
A constituent, Kevin R Tengesdal, took to Cramer’s Facebook page to express his apparent displeasure by quoting some Biblical passages.
Cramer subsequently responded by citing a different passage from the Bible, one more favorable to his position on federally funded nutrition assistance.
“Let them eat cake” was apparently too socialist in its innuendo. “Let them not eat” will do.
Or as Chez said the other day — Poor? Fuck You.
