They deserve it.

As we all know, people who live in poverty do so because they deserve it. I salute those brave Republicans who recognized that fact and voted to deny these malingerers and loafers access to a living wage. It's about time the Senate stood up and said "NO!" to the tyranny of the slacker class. If these people want to waste their money on food, rent and clothing, so be it, but America's hard-working business owners shouldn't have to subsidize those sorts of wasteful habits. As any smart person knows, business owners can only pay wages if they make profits and raising the minimum wage in this country will a) destroy the profit-incentive and b) end profit-making as we know it. Three cheers for the kleptocracy!
