Dear fellow tax hikers, we are enormously proud of our Congresswoman Jean Schmidt today as she stood up to her Republican colleagues to fight against cuts to the Food Stamp program. Food Stamps are a great way to show that yes, there is such thing as a free lunch, and it's the taxpayers who make it "free".
During the Obama Administration the number of Americans on food stamps has risen 44%, up to a record 46 million Americans. We think that's great and so does Congresswoman Schmidt.
This is our Jean Schmidt at her finest. Jean voted to raise Income Taxes on all taxpaying Americans. Jean raised Gas Taxes by 27%. Jean raised Ohio's Sales Tax by 20%. Jean voted to bail out her billionaire friends on Wall Street, including the parent company of her husband. Jean held a public makeout session with Our Messiah Barack Obama on national television. Now she is joining President Obama to defend the expanded welfare state.
It makes us sick to our tax-hiking stomachs that the great Jean Schmidt was defeated by Brad Wenstrup in this March's primary. We need her tax-and-spend voice on Capitol Hill. We stand behind Congressman Schmidt 100% as she spends her final few months teaming up with President Obama to defend the expansion of the welfare state. You go girl!
