The evil never stops with these clowns.

Nearly 700,000 will lose food stamps with USDA work requirement
The Trump administration’s rule change would limit states’ abilities to provide residents access to food stamps.

The Trump administration Wednesday formalized work requirements for recipients of food stamps, a move that will cause hundreds of thousands of people to lose access to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or SNAP.

Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue and Brandon Lipps, the deputy undersecretary for the USDA’s Food Nutrition and Consumer Services, spent about 18 minutes on a call with reporters outlining the changes to the rule that will take effect April 1.

“We’re taking action to reform our SNAP program in order to restore the dignity of work to a sizable segment of our population and be respectful of the taxpayers who fund the program,” Perdue said. “Americans are generous people who believe it is their responsibility to help their fellow citizens when they encounter a difficult stretch. That’s the commitment behind SNAP, but, like other welfare programs, it was never intended to be a way of life.”
The USDA rule change affects people between the ages of 18 and 49 who are childless and not disabled. Under current rules, this group is required to work at least 20 hours a week for more than three months over a 36-month period to qualify for food stamps, but states have been able to create waivers for areas that face high unemployment.

The new rule would limit states from waiving those standards, instead restricting their use to those areas that have a 6 percent unemployment rate or higher. The national unemployment rate in October was 3.6 percent.

During the call Wednesday, the USDA said that about 688,000 people would lose access to food stamps. That’s down from its earlier estimate that 750,000 people would be affected.

What an absolute crock.
Say it with me again:

THE CRUELTY IS THE POINT.
People who qualify for SNAP aren’t rich. They are barely making it, and they need the SNAP benefits TO EAT.

Yet, here we are, with them cutting people, around the holiday season, because, of course, this is who they are.

All the while, we have the GOP giving farmers WELFARE that we’ll never get back because of his idiotic trade war that he’s losing.
And, what will his supporters say? Since they believe that he’s hurting THOSE PEOPLE, they’ll be ok with it, because the hate is the point.

Never mind that among the largest percentages of those on SNAP are the Elderly and Children….why point that out?

It’s just disgusting, watching them do this to those with the least in this society. But, this just isn’t Dolt45…this is the GOP. They are Dolt45 and he is them. For all the so-called Christians among them…they are not Christian in the least.

Their cruelty never ends.
