Fridgegate: Oh, SNAP, Chris #Christie! (VIDEO)

Fridgegate Chris Christie

Ruh roh! Chris Christie has another gate to contend with besides Bridgegate (scroll): Fridgegate. No, stop that, it's not what you think. I shy away from jokes about his weight (or anyone's for that matter). This gate is all about SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), also known as food stamps.

Funny (meaning, sad) how someone who claims to care so much about his fellow New Jersyians refuses to help the hungriest among them:

Chris Hayes:

For governors this wasn't about cheating. It was about maintaining a lifeline for poor people who desperately needed the assistance. And it wasn't just Democrats. Pennsylvania's Republican governor Tom Corbett, a tea party ally, is one of the governors who moved to preserve food stamp benefits for his state....

Most of the states that made the move to maintain food stamp benefits are concentrated in one region, the northeast. But there is one state in that region, a state where the governor often claims to put his own people above politics, that notably has not.

Chris Christie:

I've got a job to do here in New Jersey that's much bigger than presidential politics. And I could care less about any of that stuff. I have a job to do. If you think right now i give a damn about presidential politics, then you don't know me.

Hayes:

The same governor Chris Christie who professed to be disgusted when Congress initially did not approve billions in Sandy aid has been silent when it comes to finding a way to keep an estimated 160,000 New Jersey residents from losing out on food stamps.

Of course, unlike helping people affected by Sandy, getting food stamps is politically toxic for Republicans. The last thing Chris Christie wants to be talking about as he eyes a presidential run is how he expanded food stamps in his state.

We reached out to Governor Christie's office about this and received a fact sheet in response that did not address the issue.

NRCC on moving on from "repeal #Obamacare" efforts: "No, we can't."

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

nrcc alert so sick of your sh..t

The NRCC (National Republican Congressional Committee) wants to take health insurance away from millions of people. They're not even trying to hide that nasty little fact. In fact, they made it very public. After President Obama's Affordable Care Act Signed up 8,000,000 People victory lap yesterday, the NRCC decided they would remain in their Bubble O' Obstruction for the foreseeable future. They said as much in this tweet:

nrcc tweet Obamacare

That should go over well with Americans who are now covered, who are now able to afford to treat their illnesses and injuries, whose children are covered, and who are no longer turned away when they have pre-existing conditions. Like being a woman, for example. Or having cancer.

See how "pro-life" they are?

Do they not realize that, in addition to Obamacare consumers, this also benefits their corporate Big Insurance buddies?

How's that outreach thing workin' for ya, GOP?

Here are a few of the replies they got on the Twitter Machine:
