GOP budget cuts against the poor are being offset almost dollar for dollar with tax breaks for millionaires.
The republican attack on the poor is targeting food for low income women and children.
“The House Appropriations Committee approved more than $830 million in cuts to WIC and millions more in cuts to the Emergency Food Assistance Program,” according to Think Progess.
The deal to cut funding to food programs for women and children is being offset by $860 million in tax breaks for those earning more than $1 million dollars a year, according to Internal Revenue Service data.
The loss of revenue for the low income food program was caused by the extension of the Bush tax cuts late last year.
