Pope Francis has brought new spirit into the Church with his
humble lifestyle and direct and often challenging commentary on world
affairs and personal ethics. Read More...
15 members of Congress got farm subsidies in 2012, including Rep. Steve Fincher of Tennessee, who has collected nearly $3.5
million in subsidies since 1999; Rep. Doug LaMalfa of California and his wife own one
third of DSL LaMalfa Family Partnership, which in 2012 alone got
$188,570; Rep. Marlin Stutzman of Indiana has received $196,268 in farm subsidies since 1997.
On his radio show, he used old data and failed to note the large numbers of children and elderly in the
recipient group. Also there was at least one person working in almost 3/4 of the recipient households
Actually the poverty rate has fallen and plummeted for some groups
previously attributed to Paul Harvey, but was written in 1996 by Bob Russell
for a Kentucky Governor's
Prayer Breakfast, then delivered by Rev. Joe Wright at the Kansas House of Representatives.
Why would a true Christian twist the truth?
has compiled more than 500 promises that Barack Obama made during the
2008 and 2012 campaigns and is tracking their progress on our Obameter.
45 percent were kept and 25 percent were compromised. Check it out.
In an 84-page document which is essentially the official platform for his papacy, Pope Francis beseeches politicians to guarantee all citizens "dignified work, education and healthcare". He condemns an economy of exclusion and inequality. Read about his first year.
Administrative costs for SNAP tops out at 5 percent of program costs, and the scholar behind the statistic she appears to have used as support said Bachmann has misquoted his work.
In a message to more than 2,500 participants at the annual World
Economic Forum, the pontiff urged industrialists and bankers to promote
inclusive prosperity, but stopped short of chiding them for excesses
laid bare by the global financial crisis.
The technology behind government electronic benefit cards blocks that.
While the card could have cash value from another program such as TANF,
no ATM would dispense cash based on a person’s food stamp allowance.
First, Paul cherry picked data from outdated estimates/ not facts. His figures are not mathematically possible. Using the narrowest definition
of "sign-ups," there would have to be 3.3 million cancellations in the
state for his figures to be true. In fact, it’s reasonable to argue that more people in Kentucky have coverage through Obamacare than have been canceled.
As many as 400,000 Virginians could become eligible for Medicaid
under Obamacare, and the U.S. would pay their entire health care costs
But the $5 million-a-day figure comes from an old state estimate. Updated data shows loss of $3.5 million a day for the 2014 budget year, and about $4.5 million a day
during the following budget year.
Many hotly contested Texas races produced many false claims on both sides of the isle. Check out if your candidate is telling the truth.
But they failed to do due diligence and were snookered, since the story
came from a publication that bills itself (quietly) as a "satirical,
It's not income as most people think of it. It's how much a poor single
parent with two children under age 5 would have to earn to get the
equivalent value of all programs, including food stamps, medical care,
heating assistance and housing subsidies, plus $6,648 a year in cash
The number of "welfare" recipients -- unlike the number of workers -- is
enlarged by the inclusion of children and senior citizens. The
comparison also ignores that many "welfare" recipients actually work, so
trying to separate the two categories creates a false dichotomy.
This seems to come directly from an article in the Daily Mail.
It’s most glaring defect is
that it compares a 10-year cumulative total to a single-year snapshot
of the number of people who gained insurance.
It’s safe to say around a million Texas adults fall into the coverage gap for making too little money to qualify for insurance subsidies and also remaining ineligible for Medicaid unless Texas expands access as encouraged by the Obamacare law and rejected by Perry and the state’s ruling Republicans.
The technology behind government electronic benefit cards blocks that. While the card could have cash value from another program such as TANF, no ATM would dispense cash based on a person’s food stamp allowance.
The numbers cited by the meme are framed in a misleading way. The sum of money cited has been allotted
to a small fraction of all undocumented immigrant children in the United
States, and it isn’t going into their pockets as family earnings are.
In the GOP debate, Kasich defended
his decision to accept Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care
Act. The Kaiser Family Foundation says
Ohio’s growth rate is 3.3 percent between 2010 and 2013, placing it
