Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) told the House on January 24th that she wants “to challenge the utilization of words”. More specifically she is challenging any negative connotations that may be associated with Barack Obama being labeled as the ‘food stamp president’. The Texas representative said, “The negative connotation of ‘food stamp president’ is to denegrate those who receive it, rather than to suggest that there are opportunities in this nation that no other country can provide.”
