Dana Rohrabacher 'Would Defund White Trash'

Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.) said on Twitter this week that he would like to "defund white trash" who take advantage of federal social programs.
Rohrabacher made the remark in a reply to a Twitter user who was complaining about immigration policy.
House Republicans are seeking cuts to food stamps that would trim the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program's cost by roughly 5 percent over 10 years.
In June, Rohrabacher said that John Boehner (R-Ohio) should be removed from his position as House speaker if he brought immigration reform to a full vote without majority support from Republicans.
