Starve the Poor to Pay the Rich.....

Last edited Sun Mar 25, 2012, 01:34 PM - Edit history (11)

Millions of people would lose part or all of their SNAP (food stamp) benefits under House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan’s new budget, a new CBPP analysis shows.

The Ryan plan would cut SNAP — the nation’s most important anti-hunger program — by $133.5 billion or more than 17 percent over the next ten years. (Click here for the state-by-state impact.) Since more than 90 percent of SNAP expenditures are for food assistance, a cut of that size would require scaling back SNAP eligibility and/or reducing benefits.

To illustrate the size of the cut:

If the cuts came solely from new eligibility restrictions, more than 8 million people would need to be cut from the program, if the cuts began taking effect in 2013.
If the cuts came solely from across-the-board benefit cuts, SNAP benefits would have to be cut by about $22 to $27 per person per month in 2016 dollars.

2. Republicans have no heart

Republicans have no heart, no compassion, nothing for anyone unless you are rich, then they will move mountains for you.

10. You can't buy it so easy with food stamps...

...I can tell you that from experience. Man at register say, no hot food.

This makes me think I should have spent those days buying hotdogs, chili, rice, and mac salad ingredients in bulk. I could have lived like a king!

11. People of Wisconsin voted for this tool

I guess this is how they believe the country should be run. This budget plan is an utter joke.
