Banksters. Medication Killers.

A Cut From Charity

Today, one out of every seven people in America receive taxpayer-funded food stamps.

However, in what is society’s attempt to meet subsistence needs of people in dire situation, JP Morgan’s Christopher Paton told Bloomberg News that “food stamps are big business” for the big bank. Of course, without a hint of shame.

The GAI report, Profits From Poverty: How Food Stamps Make Corporations Money, says JP Morgan’s political donations to members of the House and Senate Agriculture Committees (who oversee the food stamp program) skyrocketed once the bank entered the EBT market !
