Trump administration to pursue rule that would remove 3.1 million from SNAP

The Trump administration is expected to propose a rule on Tuesday to tighten food stamp restrictions that would cut about 3.1 million people from the program. Currently, 43 US states allow residents to automatically become eligible for food stamps through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).

Yes please, we really need to cut spending, and the welfare state is our biggest issue.

So the new rule is to verify income to see if they qualify... how is this not already standard practice.

Sorry, but I don't have a ton of sympathy for food stamps applicants. I worked at Walmart as a cashier for about a year and the amount of waste I saw was horrifying. Steak, cookies, soda, and chicken nuggets were the biggest purchases. The WIC program is far and away superior for helping the needy. You can buy healthy products, baby formula, and dietary specialty items and it saves taxpayers heaps of money.

Prepackaged MRE's delivered to their door by social workers that can do a health check at the same time. Have a mobile medical unit ready to take urine and blood samples.

Tax breaks for the rich "paid for" by literally taking food out of the mouths of starving children.

How much is a sandwich? Like a dollar max? Go to the store and get some cheap ass meat and cheese and some bread and eat it over time instead of spending 10 dollars on a double cheeseburger twice a day.

Bout time! In my city you can easily buy food stamps for .50 on a dollar. Most just want cash for drugs!

*gets nervous for a family I know* CBS: You're not going to be auto-enrolled via TANF, you have to apply and meet the criteria like everyone else. Me: oh, good, they're not on TANF. Tighten away.

If Trump and the Republicans really wanted to cut the budget go after Corporate welfare. The Fossil Fuel Industry receives annually between $775 billion to $1 trillion. But of course, their lords and masters are paying them big bucks to keep Corporate Welfare going and increase it as much as possible.

If the economy is doing well, we shouldn't be having food stamps

BTW, you people know this is some bizarre mirror world bullshit right there... The war is over... For a while now. Time to eliminate food stamps, don't you think? At first I thought it was some sort of an expression... But no, really? Actual "food stamps"? 😂👍
