NY Dem: Republicans 'Just Want People to Starve'

February 11, 2014 - 5:47 PM

Well, if you're one of the most liberal members of Congress, with one of the safest seats, I guess you can say this about Republicans.

Democratic Congressman Jerrold Nadler of New York - Manhattan to be exact - was caught on camera saying that Republicans "just want people to starve and it's disgusting."

Nadler was commenting about his vote against the new farm bill, which was passed last January after a two-year impasse.   Nadler was disgusted by the $8 billion dollars in cuts to food stamps included in the bill.
