All you've done in this thread in that regard is to accuse me of something that's not true. It has nothing to do with politics. You made a personal attack against me even though, by your own admission, you had no idea what my political stance on the issue was at the time. You didn't call anyone out on anything. You just shot your mouth off in what is typically your fashion. Own your behavior.

Example: you still haven't answered my question.

If you had to choose between the two in order to reduce the deficit, would you close the OP's loophole, or would you make cuts in the food stamp program.
Because it's a silly question based in a manufactured reality. This loophole doesn't have to be closed in order to maintain the food stamp program. I just did a quick look on wikipedia (take it for what it's worth) and the article states that the 2012 budget for SNAP (food stamps) was $74.6 billion.
