There’s a basic error here. Gingrich, of course, is calling the Democrats the “Part of Food Stamps,” not because they make food stamps necessary, but simply because they make them available. I’m not even kidding. The GOP plan is, what?, essentially to end that program and hope that impending starvation serves as a sufficient motivator. Presumably, if it does not, the outcome will serve to lower the poverty rate one way or another.
