A Short Letter to Kansas Governor Sam Brownback RE: the Elimination of Food Stamps for Poor Children

Dear Mr. Brownback,

I learned today that you, my Kansas Governor [for other readers: Sam Brownback (Rep.)] have eliminated food stamps for children who are American citizens yet whose parents are not.

First, I feel this shows a complete disregard for many of the people you’ve been called to care for. Are you showing preferential treatment against some American citizens simply because their parents come from places you don’t like or who have a different color of skin, perhaps?

Second, for me as a Christian person, Mr. Brownback, this totally shows your cards – that you care more for economic stability of an empire rather than caring for the poor, for CHILDREN who are now going to go hungry. I’m rather surprised that a man of your status and office seems unable to handle two tasks at once.

Mr. Brownback, is the American Dollar worth that much more to you – so much so that you’d rather see a child go hungry than “look” like you support illegal immigration (which is a supposed threat to the American economy)?

— Written by a concerned citizen who now finds himself living next to the children whom you’ve chosen to deprive food.
