Trump plans to hit Food Stamps

President Trump’s anticipated cuts to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, better known as food stamps, will likely be felt most in regions of the country with chronic high rates of unemployment — from the rural Southeast to aging manufacturing towns to Indian reservations.

Robert Rector, a senior research fellow at The Heritage Foundation who has asked the White House to prioritize work requirements, said the Trump administration needs to “go after” the four million able-bodied adults without dependents in the food stamp program.
“You say to them, ‘We will give you assistance, but come to the office one day a week to do job search or community service,’” Rector said. “When Maine did that, they found almost immediately that their caseload dropped 85 percent.”

I can't say much for the rest of the country, but there are plenty of jobs up here. No, they're not high paying but you don't have to sit around collecting food stamps while you wait years for that perfect job. Might be different in other states, but people eat just as much as they did before. Except now they work and the state pays less.
  

Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek

IF you’re going to get people off their ass, it's the right thing to do.  Don't have a problem helping, but NO FREE ride.

But what about the children? Haven't we been told that 1 in 5 children in America go to bed hungry. Thus, by some convoluted logic, we should let more illegal interlopers come here. Yes, by all means, play the children card. Keep those food stamps a-comin' for all able bodied lazy parasites of every stripe.

I simply want to know his position on foodstamps. Why do you assume he is in poverty? I agree he probably doesn't make much as a shill, and also his language level implies maybe 10th grade, but there is a possibility he has some net worth.

By today's standards, Trump probably qualifies for food stamps.
