Whatever wants to punish the children by taking away their food if their parents don't work.<quoted text>
Since 2000, SNAP has grown from $20 billion to $85 billion nationally. The modest deduction proposed will not bring it back close to the percentage of population receiving it before this run-up.
SNAP is now the second largest program in the US. 85% of the bill is SNAP and similar programs.
Objecting to work requirements as "punishment" makes the Dems look foolish.
The farm lobbyist get plenty of support from key Dems too. Depends on state rep is from rather than party.
The purpose of SNAP is to help make sure children, the disabled, etc have food.
