Even when they agree, the White House and Republicans can't agree. Both sides believe that spending in the 2012 farm bill should be slashed by $32-35B, with major cuts for subsidies and soil conservation. However, the GOP wants reductions for food stamps, a move the White House is opposed to. Under the fiscal cliff, money for farm programs would fall by up to $10B.

    Sorry to disappoint, but many live in the South, and food stamp recipients are White 63.7% and only 12.2% Black. So, I highly doubt any significant majority are Democrats.

    A few apt quotes:

     

    "Can't we all just get along?"
    -- Rodney King (just after the riot)

     

    "Can't this thing go any faster?"
    -- Rodney King (trying to hit 140-miles-per-hour just before the riot)

     

    "Let them eat Obamaphones."
    -- Michelle Obama (after learning that food-stamp recipients were going hungry)

     

    "If we go any further Foward! we're going to end up in the middle ages."
    -- Charles Murray Berra
