Dec 1 - Trump's proposed SNAP changes would mean millions lose food stamp access
 

 
Three proposed rule changes by the Trump administration could cause millions of poor people to lose access to food stamps and decrease the size of the benefit for millions more, a new study has found.

Over the past year, the Department of Agriculture proposed three changes to the Supplemental Nutrition a*sistance Program, known as SNAP or food stamps. The new rules create stricter work requirements for program eligibility, cap deductions for utility allowances and “reform” the way 40 states automatically enroll families into SNAP when they receive other forms of federal aid.

A study by the Urban Institute released this week examined the three rules in combination for the first time and found that 3.7 million fewer people would receive SNAP in an average month, 2.2 million households would see their average monthly benefits drop by $127, more than 3 million others would see an average drop of $37 per month, and 982,000 students would lose access to free or reduced lunches.

“What we found is that overall the three proposed changes would reduce the number of households participating in SNAP by about 11 percent if this was implemented in 2018," said Laura Wheaton, a senior fellow at the Urban Institute who conducted the study. "It’s about a 9.4 percent reduction in the number of people participating and about an 8 percent reduction in overall benefits.”

Critics and experts say that would be antithetical to the program's goals to address food insecurity in the United States.

Craig Gundersen, an agricultural and consumer economics professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, who has studied the program for more than two decades, said that about a million people could become food-insecure because of the change. He added that 50 percent of those 3.7 million SNAP beneficiaries were already food insecure despite the a*sistance.

The changes, he said, would put many Americans in a worse position, increasing hunger and health issues. Each additional adult who becomes food-insecure sees an additional $2,000 in healthcare costs, Gundersen explained.

"The essential goal of the program is to mitigate hunger and its consequences in the United States,” he said. "Anything that impedes SNAP of doing that is very problematic as it leads to food insecurity in our country."

The USDA, meanwhile, estimates that the changes would reduce the SNAP budget by about $4.2 billion.

Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue defended the work requirements in a USA Today column, emphasizing that it would save taxpayer dollars.

“At USDA, our informal motto is ‘Do Right and Feed Everyone,’” Perdue wrote. “With these proposed improvements, we will ‘do right’ by the taxpayers and restore the dignity of work to the able-bodied who receive SNAP benefits. And, we will ‘feed everyone’ by ensuring the health and stability of SNAP for those who truly need it.”

All of the new rules have gone through a comment period with the changes to utilities currently taking feedback until Monday. Tens of thousands of people have already responded, with most providing negative responses.

Let's demonize the poor while a company like Walmart is saving an estimated $2.2B a year thanks to the Trump tax cuts.

Good, let all those broke red states suffer for voting against their interests. Maybe when it hits them hard then they'll realize they're in the wrong team.

What are they thinking?
"The wealthiest people will have so much food that it will trickle down to the poors"

Seems like a ploy to fill the prisons back up cause they know how loyal a hungry dog is
poor people will get it how they live

That will never happen. They think black people and illegals all "abuse the system" and that somehow cuts on SNAP will only affect "those people."

Yes I do realize a lot of the people that get this do have jobs...but a lot do not but are capable.

I’m more willing to help the people with jobs use the a*sistance as a stepping stone to get out of poverty but I really don’t like the idea of giving freebies to people that are life time food stamp users but are capable of working.

Some people on foodstamps do have jobs. Just after bills people still dont have much left to eat.

Wow I watched that video and was so dumbfounded by their stupidity I had to watch it again to show my wife.

They are literally dying in that town from the coal, but want the jobs backs. Obama care is literally saving their lives, and thousands of a month they couldn’t afford otherwise.

These clowns are not only voting against their personal interest, they’re vote against themselves living.

That hatred runs deep

I hate when they run with that narrative that Obama had a "war on coal" when they're favorite Republican Moscow Mitch wouldn't vote so they wouldn't lose their pensions and health benefits......Obama actually tried to pump money into their dumbass communities.

They were offering programs where they got free education and a decent paying job but they turned it down because they said coal runs through their veins. Now they have neither and want to act like they're the victims. They were thrown a life saver but turned it away because it was the wrong color and still complain that they're drowning. That's the power of privilege
