Feb 14 - Trump wants to cut food stamps, use controversial meal kits instead
 

 
I can't rock with this

A proposal by the Trump administration that calls for replacing some food a.ssistance to the poor with meal deliveries is raising questions among some social service agencies.

On Monday, the Trump administration proposed cutting food stamps, formally known as the Supplemental Nutrition a.ssistance Program, or SNAP, by $17 billion in 2019 and more than $213 billion over the next decade.

In an effort to cut costs, Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney announced "America's Harvest Box" for SNAP recipients.

Instead of receiving a.ssistance in the form of an electronic benefit card (EBT), recipients receiving more than $90 in monthly aid would get about half that amount in the form of government-provided, nonperishable food items.

That idea isn't sitting well with advocates for the poor.
“These cuts would leave vulnerable families here in Wayne County and Metro Detroit who are working hard to achieve economic mobility without the critical a.ssistance they need to not fall further into poverty,” said Louis D. Piszker, CEO of the Wayne Metropolitan Community Action Agency.

In Michigan, SNAP helped feed 1.3 million people as of December.

This measure comes on the back of the Trump's administration's second budget proposal, which slashes funding for a number of government agencies and a number of social a.ssistance programs, in addition to food stamps.

The plan faces an uphill battle. Trump's proposals would need to pass in both the House and the Senate — an unlikely feat. The government already has shut down twice during his administration over partisan impasse on federal funding — once for three days starting Jan. 19 and again for a few hours on Feb. 9.

Critics also questioned Mulvaney's choice of words when describing the America's Harvest Box. He referred to it as a “Blue Apron-type program,’’ where food stamps would be replaced by boxed food.

I remember some girl on my facebook feed who was a cashier at a local supermarket, would vent about people with the latest iPhone paying with an EBT card.











Fun Fact: You can purchase filet mignon at Whole Foods with food stamps.

Should they instead just get a ton of processed food with no substance? Would that make you happy?

What would make me happy is random ECONOMICAL advanced drug test for food stamp recipients. Continue to provide benefits to those with real disabilities that can't work. Provide proposed meal kits, less people signing up knowing they can't sell their ebt monthly budget.

Wow you’re dense, you’d rather spend even more money paying for drug tests and hiring people or paying to implement these rules. What’s wrong with you? You even human? To a.ssume the worse of people who often don’t want to be on a.ssistance and would rather be in a position they can thrive and provide for themselves. I get there are people who abuse the system but that goes with any system, you think like someone who’s small minded, and that’s just me putting it nicely

You asked me what would make me happy.







I wish there was an economical way to perform drug test but I know that's a far reach. I knew you'd focus on that part of my answer and pivot though.

Hey genius, are you implying that a more cheaper and economical way to drug test in 2018 as compared to 2012 is impossible?

In all fairness the government has been f@#kin over people, specifically minorities, for a long time now so f@#k em. Just to add to this point...minorities aren't the majority of recipients....even tho they try to paint that picture.
