The Republicans have struck, again. Seniors, low-income families, the disabled and impoverished individuals will have their meager nutrition allowance cut now, and if the Congressional Republicans have their way, cut again later.

These cuts will impact small business. Therefore, the Chamber of Commerce is readying actions to safeguard their members.

It is time we all stood together against the draconian premise that punishes the poor for being poor while allowing the top 1 percent to continue with impunity. Call the President. Call your elected officials. Tell them to vote.
