This a total fabrication was created by, Empire News, one of the many "satirical" websites, that circulate fabrications as if it were truth. See the site's disclaimer page that most readers do not know exists. Read about the epidemic of political satire websites that spread lies
Tom Cotton, AK GOP House
Cotton says "President Obama hijacked the farm bill (and) turned it into a food stamp bill."
Food stamps have been part of every farm bill enacted since 1973. Cotton and his allies in the House attempted to strip the food stamp provisions, so they were the ones who were trying to make a radical change.
Arnold Abbott
"Drop that Plate!" A 90 year old man was arrested for feeding the poor in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, under a new ordinance that can jail him up to 90 days.
Ninety year old "Chef Arnold Abbott" and two pastors were arrested for serving food that they cooked in their church kitchen. Some 30 cities have tried to introduce laws similar laws at a time that more veterans face homelessness and after two harsh winters drove homeless people southward.

An Ohio report shows that 1/3 had a medical or physical limitation, including depression, PTSD, or mental or learning disabilities. Many were caregivers or had other impediment to employment.
Facebook
"Newly Elected Republican Senators Sign Pledge to Eliminate Food Stamp Program in 2015."
But they failed to do due diligence and were snookered, since the story came from a publication that bills itself (quietly) as a "satirical, parody website."
Bill Gates
Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation which has helped hundreds of millions of people around the world, has published its Annual Newsletter.
They predict that "the lives of people in poor countries will improve faster in the next 15 years than at any other time in history. And their lives will improve more than anyone else's." They will have "unprecedented opportunities to get an education, eat nutritious food, and benefit from mobile banking", driven by innovation in technology. Goals include making drinking water from sewage, wiping out malaria, polio, HIV, and more.

Rush Limbaugh
Limbaugh says,"85 percent donated to the Clinton Foundation ended up either with the Clintons or with their staff to pay for travel, salaries, and benefits."
Limbaugh's statement ignores critical facts that would give a different impression. While 85% did go to Clinton Foundation staff for travel, salaries and benefits, most of the foundation's charitable work is done in-house. The Clinton Foundation says 88% goes to charitable programs, including 15% went to charitable grants to outside organizations.
