Madame Foxx to Poor Constiuents: Eat Wallpaper!

Virginia Foxx has been busy as a member-in-good-standing of the Republican Study Committee, working to pass a budget reduction bill that would require longer work hours to qualify for welfare, allow states to impose new costs on Medicaid beneficiaries, cut assistance for child support enforcement, trim student loan spending, cut back agriculture supports, and curb eligibility for food stamps ... all to pay for yet another tax cut for the rich.

At the moment, according to the WashPost (linked above), House Republican leaders acknowledge they don't have the votes to pass this monstrosity.
