This is what I call an online two timing double talking phony.
Congressman Daines’ hypocrisy reached his Facebook page yesterday when posted a staged Meals on Wheels photo op on Facebook to imply he supports the program. In reality, Daines voted to cut anti-hunger programs that would have left mostly children, seniors and veterans without food.
If you are looking for someone who epitomizes hypocrisy, look no further than TEA Party poster boy Steve Daines. Montana’s lone Congressman voted against the bill to restore funding for the Meals on Wheels program. It would have provided an added $41 million for elderly nutrition programs, including the Meals on Wheels. He also voted for the Paul Ryan budget that cut (non-defense) spending by $900 billion which hurt “the ability of federally assisted programs such as Meals on Wheels to continue serving populations.”
But its not just cuts Daines’ has tried to pass. He supported an earlier TEA Party budget that would essentially eliminate the Meals on Wheels program by cutting grants that fund programs like Meals on Wheels. He voted to cut nearly $40 billion from anti-hunger programs that would have left low-income families – mostly children, seniors and veterans – without food. What a gem.
Unfortunately, a few reporters fell for his publicity stunt. Perhaps next time they’ll check his voting record before giving him thousands of dollars worth of free air time to pretend to support something he tried to eliminate. CBS got it right anyway (KECI, KPAX) http://youtu.be/RRK36E46-9M
