This link goes to an article justifying Philabundance's position against the $2000 asset test.
To take action, click link near the top that says "ACT NOW! Contact Governor Corbett and tell him you are not in favor of a food stamp asset test.".
Even if you think SOME asset test might be appropriate, for many reasons $2000 is way too low. As a taxpayer and long-time Pennsylvanian, I would rather pay for a small amount of fraud in the system, than hurt as many honest people as will be hurt by Corbett's plan.
