    A political deal with two ass ends. No doubt this will be a popular hybrid, until the ’14 elections.

    Now if they can turn their attention to getting rid of some the them money they waste on tax exemption to the NFL and farm subsidies to wealth land owners who never farm, and many, many others. But then it’s some much easier to cut benefits that might aid the greater population than risk losing the big campaign bucks. than angering the upper class.

    This alone, was pure gold.

    Last time I checked under Obama’s rule, food stamp recipients increases I’ve seen between 30% to 70%, it seems more like a recruitment drive to purchase votes for Democrats. It’s far more expensive than whatever gain the Republicans would get for tax cuts for the rich.

    US law guarantees most Americans at least $1.42 a meal. Prove that you have less than that after valid expenses like rent, and the government makes up the difference. SNAP benefits per person receiving them have dropped, but with so many out of work or forced to accept jobs of 30 hours or less, many more have less than $1.42 per meal in cash left after paying their rent. And we’re not talking rent on a Beverly Hills villa—only a tiny fraction of that would be considered a valid expense.


    But you’re right: this is only a step in the right direction. While most people have a hard time putting together a nutritionally balanced meal for $1.42, they should NOT be getting SNAP, they should be forced to go into service. (Which is NOT covered by minimum wage.)
