Mike Malloy: “Pro-life” Republicans In Opposition To Social Services? (May 7, 2012 Second 1 Segment 2)

Mike Malloy reads and comments on the Associated Press article “GOP plan protects Pentagon, cuts social programs” and attacks Republicans for preaching a “pro-life” POV that rails against abortion and contraception yet not caring about living poor children. Also, Republicans kept funding for the Pentagon!

For instance, the GOP measure would more strictly enforce a requirement that most food stamp beneficiaries have assets of $2000 or less. “We propose to stop fraud in the food-stamp program by ensuring that individuals are actually eligible for the taxpayer benefits they receive,” said Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis. “That shouldn’t be a partisan issue. That ought to be a common sense issue.”
