Conversion therapy: As posted earlier on Plunderbund

We’re hearing that some southern Ohio Republican lawmakers are so taken by the gays-to-straights conversion therapy idea taking root in the land  that they are ready to try it out in other areas of social concern.  They  would replace food stamps  for a therapeutic conversion that would require food-stamp  recipients to give up eating altogether.
One well-fed lawmaker from down along the Ohio River supported the notion as a cost-saving measure as well as the perfect solution to ridding poor recipients of their nasty eating habits.  ”This isn’t rocket science,” he said, self-assuredly.   “People who don’t eat anything don’t need the stamps. We’re finally getting around to attacking the problem at the source”.

It's clear that KASICH remains the same stealthy legislative cat burglar that he was while serving as chairman of the House Budget Committee under former Speaker Newt Gingrich, when K sprang a Republican spending bill that largely eliminated or decimated federally subsidized assistance for the poor. It was a prime example of long-stamding efforts by the GOP to balance the budget on the backs of the neediest citizens. Now he's wary of leaving his fingerprints on legislation that would deny freedom of choice to Ohio women, knowing that such a move could cost him electoral support when he decides to run for reelection.
