They Call THIS a Compromise

[UPDATE Below]

When you can't feed your family and your kids are hungry, look to your Republican neighbor first, then take a good look at your Democratic neighbor, especially the one that voted for and continues to support Barack Obama. Maybe they can make up the difference in food stamp losses. They, the Republicans, Democrats, Independents and God only knows who else, take your money, keep it to use for buying votes, or spend it on lawless wars and bail-outs for the Banks and Too Big To Fail 1% oligarchy, and you and your children can eat dirt.

This is a news headline on Democracy Now this morning Wednesday, February 5, 2014:
Senate OKs Farm Bill with $8.7 Billion in Food Stamp Cuts
The Senate has approved a long-stalled farm bill that includes a major cut to food stamps. The measure would reduce funding for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program by $8.7 billion over a decade. The figure amounts to a loss of $90 per month for 850,000 families in need. The cuts mark a "compromise" between a Republican plan to slash food stamps by $39 billion and a Democratic one to cut them by $4 billion. The bill would also end billions of dollars in direct payments to farmers, but still hand out billions more through the expansion of government-subsidized crop insurance. President Obama is expected to sign the measure into law. In a statement, the Children’s Defense Fund said: "It is shameful that Congress continues to treat poor Americans like second-class citizens by cutting supports they desperately need."
The Google definition for compromise is:
1. an agreement or a settlement of a dispute that is reached by each side making concessions.
1. settle a dispute by mutual concession.
2. weaken (a reputation or principle) by accepting standards that are lower than is desirable.
The Biblical definition for Sin is Compromise - The real reason Jesus Christ was put to death. To try to force him to sell-out or compromise his soul, to extinguish the light.

Despite majority vote, Democratic plan to restore long-term unemployment insurance fails to clear parliamentary hurdle

Don't you just love them?
