Fed poorly no more, somehow getting easy cash (5,3,3,4)


I believe the answer is:

money for old rope

'easy cash' is the definition.

'fed poorly no more somehow' is the wordplay.
'somehow' indicates anagramming the letters.
'fedpoorlynomore' is an anagram of 'MONEY FOR OLD ROPE'.

'getting' is the link.

(Other definitions for money for old rope that I've seen before include "A piece of cake" , "An easy job" , "Profit for little effort" , "dealing with elderly guys?" , "Easy profit" .)
