Members of Congress are living off food stamps for a week to protest Republican cuts. It’s a challenge for them, but GOP cuts would hurt millions of everyday Americans.
Why does this not have more publicity. This needs it!
Signal boosting this A) because it deserves to be seen by more people, and b) because I appreciate some members of Congress are actually willing to see what it’s like living on food stamps in order to make their point about how horrifying cutting food stamps would be.
News flash, regressives: people on food stamps do not load up on Snickers bars and filet mignon. They’re limited in what they can buy, and oftentimes, it’s not enough to get by on. Go on thinking these are entitlements that let minorities live lives of luxury, comfortable in the knowledge that you’ll never go hungry.
You privileged, elitist pricks.
press play if you are a doctor who fan

For a Men’s magazine they stage-managed themselves with other heterosexual socialites [including Herbert Grönemeyer, August Diehl, Moses Pelham, Thomas D] as homosexual couples, aiming more tolerance. (…) The issue now very relevant for the athletes before the olympic games in Sotschi.
Well done, GQ. Well known people from different areas supporting the movement in one of the most successfull man’s magazines.
I think this will help to spread the word about the laws in russia, so people are more aware of the issue. And this consolidates our position towards this (at least I hope so).
