The food fight over the farm bill is not about the deficit or the cost of the program. It is entirely about the very idea of supplemental nutrition programs. The right-wing radicals never have had a stomach for feeding the poor — the working poor, here — and their complaints about the high cost of food assistance are just so much noise that distract us from the real intent of ripping apart the social safety net in America.
