lobster boy: new Republican poster child

As discussed in this NPR storyCongressional Republicans have seized upon this FOX News video in their attempts to generate support for cutting back the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). See the entire collection of FOX News' "Great Food Stamp Binge" at

  1. Wow, what a fallacious argument is being made here! Firstly, their polling was a Fox News poll; clearly not representative of the American people. Secondly, they interviewed a single person. Cry me a river! The Republican's obsession with getting rid of SNAP is really sad, because people who do not abuse SNAP (the vast majority of people, by the way) legitimately need it. I had a pregnant friend who was here at UTSA, and she went to apply for SNAP. They told her since she receives financial aid, she could not get it. Where is her interview?!
