So, Newt "Shut down the Government' states that the Dems are the party of "food stamps' than pay checks. Well, Newt, how many jobs besides jobs going to fund this war effort during the Bush era actually helped Americans?

Because of the Bush era, jobs were shed to millions of Americans unless you were employed by corporations such as Halliburton or Blackwater.

While that administration and the GOP funded two wars, American jobs were shed and are still being shed. It is called the Domino effect.

In the funding of this war effort an American embassy was built in Baghdad which cost the American taxpayer, $592 million dollars. This embassy is as large as the Vatican. Where was any Tea Party movement then?

By the way those on the right raise their fists in the building of a Mosque two blocks away from Ground Zero, yet an American embassy was built in Baghdad which was the site of "Shock and Awe'? For those of you who do not know what "Shock and Awe' was, it was when we as a nation bombed an innocent country in retaliation to 9/11. Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11.

To Newt Gingrich whose surname ends in rich, as a grocery store cashier as a paid position when not writing of politics, you know nothing of people who must rely on food stamps to eat. We must all eat in order to survive. This is what is lost upon all of you who turn your backs on the poor and those out of work.
