I used to think that, but then this memo appeared.
There will apparently be an agreement to lift the government shutdown now, but the memo came out on Oct 11, before the agreement was reached.
The memo is from the USDA, part of the Department of Agriculture. That's the Executive Branch of the government. So, the White House, through the Dept of Ag, says no subsidies in November.
It will be interesting to see if Obama relents on that. Or does he want tens of millions of Americans rioting because they can't buy food?
I think this memo is the most radical thing I've ever seen in American politics--a president threatening the people of the U.S. with starvation and the resultant rioting. That's an act of war, against his own nation. Obama and his whole crew need to be impeached before they can instigate food riots.
