It's Only class War When The Rich Pay Their Fair Share

Tell me how THIS isn't class war being waged by the haves on the have nots:

For poor people on food stamps in Arizona: A state legislator has introduced a bill that would color food stamp cards bright orange. The stated reason is to “prevent fraud”, but the veil comes off pretty quickly:

“If that does concern people that they have a bright orange card, I hope they go get a better education or better jobs and stop using that card,” he said.

Yeah, shaming people is a fine motivation for them to go out and get jobs that aren't there.
