This Week on Between The Lines

"Today, Democrats are theoretically in charge of the U.S. Senate and the White House, and why they think they have to settle every single dispute with the lowest common denominator of something marginally less insane than the most insane position of a minority position within a minority party, is really beyond me. The people who sunk our economic ship should not be complaining that we’re giving life preservers to the drowning."

– Interview with Joel Berg, executive director of the New York City Coalition Against Hunger, on Democrats' "cop-out" allowing cuts to food stamps in the Farm Bill, among others, in the overall Republican austerity agenda

hunger

Surrounded by hay bales and politicians at Michigan State University on Feb. 7, President Obama signed into law the federal farm bill which will cut $8.6 billion from the federal food stamps program, known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or SNAP, during the next decade. Along with the cuts, the law provides agribusiness $7 billion in crop insurance and new subsidies for rice and peanut growers.  Story continues

citizensunited

On Feb. 5, 128 members of Congress introduced the "Government by the People Act" in the U.S. House of Representatives. Among that number was one lonely Republican, Walter Jones of North Carolina. The bill is a response to the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision of January 2010, which declared that corporations are people and money is a form of protected free speech which may not be regulated by government.  Story continues

GOP House Members Attack Endangered Species Act

MP3 Interview with Brett Hartl, endangered species policy director with the Center for Biological Diversity, conducted by Scott Harris

endangeredspecies

The federal Endangered Species Act, signed into law by President Richard Nixon in December 1973, has succeeded in saving many species during its four-decade lifespan, including the bald eagle, American alligator and the gray whale. The act currently protects more than 1,500 plants, insects, mammals, birds, reptiles and other creatures according to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. But now a group of 13 House Republicans are proposing to dismantle key elements of the law with potential deadly consequences for threatened species in North America.  Story continues
