From Daily Kos:
There is a horrifying twist on the $8.7 billion cuts to food stamp cuts that passed the House—and which will soon face a vote in the Senate.
Almost all of the food stamp cuts come from 16 states and the District of Columbia—including Washington. The rest of the nation is left virtually untouched.

But wait, that’s not all—15 of these 16 states voted for President Obama twice, and 28 of their 32 senators are Democrats.
In other words, these cuts are targeted overwhelmingly at poor folks in blue states.
