Senator Vitter Passes 'No Food Stamps For Murderers And Rapists' Amendment to Farm Bill

The amendment was agreed to by unanimous consent. Thank God we can all agree that taxpayers shouldn't be forced to feed murderers, rapists, and pedophiles.
Vitter’s amendment would prohibit convicted murderers, rapists, and pedophiles from receiving food stamps. Under current law, there is a lifetime ban only for convicted drug felons, though many states have opted out of or modified that ban. Vitter’s amendment would extend the lifetime food stamp ban to dangerous sex offenders and murderers, and would not allow states to opt out or modify this ban.

What's the difference? Murderers and rapists issue them.

This should have been in effect from the beginning. And I strongly agree with 8:20pm: Independence card = ineligibility to vote, especially if they are lifers.
