Thank goodness, that's nothing compared to what the House has in mind: $21 billion in cuts to SNAP. But it's a good start in the right direction. CBPP estimates that cuts as large as what the House is calling for would eliminate food aid to two million people, many families with children and the elderly.

"They either deplete our valuable national resources by getting abortions, or they have the kids and then plead for food stamps for the kids," Sessions continued. Asked whether he felt a moral compunction to feed America's starving kids, Cruz scoffed. "My only obligation is to fetuses still in the womb; once out, then it's all on the irresponsible harlots who have them."
