Uh Oh: 47 Million Food Stamp Recipients Are Having Their Benefits Cut Back On November 1st

American Dream
October 22, 2013
47.6 million Americans are about to have their food stamp benefits cut, and most of them have absolutely no idea that it is about to happen. Needless to say, a lot of them are going to be very angry when they discover that they cannot buy as much food for their families anymore. The reason that this is happening is because a temporary boost to food stamp benefits that was put in during the last recession is expiring. But most of the people that are having their benefits cut will not understand this.
Image: Food stamp user.
Most of them will just be very upset that the government is “taking money away” from them. And considering the “mini-riots” that we witnessed earlier this month when the system that processes food stamp payments went down for a few hours, it is obvious that a lot of food stamp recipients can very easily be pushed over the edge. So what would happen if we have another “debt ceiling crisis” in Washington D.C. early next year and food stamp benefits are temporarily cut off completely?
Wherever “austerity” has been tried in Europe, it has resulted in protests and riots. Could a similar thing happen in this country?
NBC News is reporting that ALL food stamp recipients are going to have their food stamp benefits reduced in November. This is certainly not going to put those living in poverty in a good mood…
Millions of American families could face a sparse holiday table when food stamps benefits get reduced in November, and that could be just the start of deeper cuts to the program to feed poor families.
The modern-day food stamp plan, now called the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, is scheduled to scale back benefits for all recipients on Nov. 1 because a recession-era boost in benefits is expiring.
Sadly, the truth is that food stamp benefits don’t even buy a lot of food right now. According to the USDA, the average monthly food stamp benefit is approximately $272 per household.
And now it will be even lower.
The government says that a family of four will be getting 36 dollars less per month starting on November 1st.
That may not sound like a lot to you, but for those living on the edge of poverty it can make a huge difference.
What are impoverished families supposed to do? Eat a diet that consists entirely of Ramen noodles?
Of course the real solution would be to provide good paying jobs for those families, but unfortunately our leaders continue to pursue policies that are systematically killing American jobs so that is not going to happen.
Meanwhile, those living in poverty continue to become angrier and more frustrated.
We got a glimpse of this earlier this month. The following is a brief excerpt from a recent article posted on offgridsurvival.com
Over the weekend, the debit system that allows people on government assistance to buy food, temporarily went down. The resulting chaos is a small glimpse at what I believe will happen, should the government plunge this country into some sort of economic collapse.
A couple of Walmarts in Louisiana decided to allow people to shop, even though the system was down and they had no real way of knowing how much credit people had on their cards. The resulting chaos had the store’s shelves in Springhill and Mansfield, LA stripped bare, as food stamp recipients attempted to defraud the grocery stores.
When the system went back online, the grocery store found people who had as little as .49 on their Food Stamp cards attempting to steal over $700 in food. Local police were called in as the crowd started to turn ugly, and overflowing grocery carts were left abandoned in the aisles.
To summarize, it's the culture & for a real challenge, find some who are truly starving

Yes, I'll tell you how so-called "African" Americans live here because I lived here, and I'll tell you how real Africans live there because I lived there. I din't just live in Africa, I lived in the heart of the jungle in central Africa.

Hey dumbo. I recall you defending Democrats stance on Voter ID. You scoundrels just want anyone to be able to show up and vote.

To illustrate what hypocrites you are, let me tell you what my state is telling me on my drivers licence renewal so I can get a "verified" drivers license that as a valid federal ID so I can use it for air travel, etc.

To renew the license as "verified" they require "ALL" of the following documents:

1 - Passport or Birth Certificate
2 - Social Security Card or W-2 or 1099
3 - Bill from a Bank, credit card or utility company
4 - Bank Statement or pre-printed pay stub or property tax bill

If non-US born, also need more stuff

This is no chit, and it's our Obama/Democrat Federal Gibberment requiring this, hypocrite!!!!!

Yet, a bozo like you says it's too much to ask a voter to bring a single form of ID?

You musty like being shown to be wrong all the time.

You right wing losers have no answers, just whine, whine, whine.
No one cares what you teabaggers think, we know you only have whines, no solutions.
You don't matter any more.
Of course, Obammy in his own mind, is blameless as usual. His mind and the low-informed, like you.

And could there be more convincing proof that President Obama is more concerned about himself than he is about the Americans he is supposed to serve than his Monday morning speech defending the disastrous Obamacare rollout rather than apologizing for it?

Could there be more compelling evidence that he is first and foremost a SAUL ALINSKY AGITATOR than the fact that he took the offense and attacked Republicans for fighting him on the budget -- a fight that in no way caused any rollout problems -- rather than humbly admit these inexcusable and humiliating problems?

Democrats and the LIBERAL MEDIA SAVAGED President George W. BUSH for allegedly never admitting a policy mistake. Can you fantasize them expressing disenchantment with Obama on these grounds, with far more justification?

OBAMA WILL NEVER APOLOGIZE FOR ANYTHING. Instead, he pretends everything he touches is golden, as if to say, "Don't believe your lying eyes, and especially don't believe partisan Republicans, who simply want to embarrass me."

But EVEN SOME OF THE LIBERAL MEDIA ARE NOT BUYING INTO HIS PROPAGANDA on Obamacare. They're acknowledging that more than glitches are involved.

USA Today described Obama's remarks as "defiant."

National Journal's Ron Fournier said that "Obama should be freaked out over Obamacare," that "it reflects poorly on the president" and that "it's worse than we know, this is the easy part, and millions of Americans could be hurt."

BUT OBAMA MUST NOT SHOW WEAKNESS, EXCEPT WHEN DEALING WITH FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS.

More to the point, it's not just that he won't show weakness; it's that the FAILURE OF HIS POLICIES doesn't even register with him.

He's an incorrigible ideologue whose perception of his failed policies is that they actually are working because the liberal academics' chalkboard predicted they would work -- so they do. It can't be otherwise.

Apparent failures are an illusion, mostly created by intractable Republicans.

Despite reports that his group is nearly broke, FreedomWorks CEO Matt Kibbe predicted in an interview with MSNBC host Chris Matthews on Monday that his group would help Tea Party Republicans dominate the GOP within a year.

“I think it’s a process,” Kibbe told Matthews.“I think it happens by 2014,’cause we’re trying to shift the center of gravity.”

Kibbe did note that he favored supporting moderate Republicans in liberal-leaning states, but southern states like South Carolina should be represented by a “hardcore constitutional conservative that doesn’t want to spend money we don’t have.”

However, Daily Beast correspondent Michael Tomasky challenged Kibbe’s forecast, calling it “delusional” and blaming the Tea Party for costing the GOP in states like New York and California.

“You remember, Chris: It was only 15, 20 years ago, the Republican party was competitive to dominant in California,” Tomasky told Matthews.“But [now] it’s dead. It’s dead because it’s gone so far right, and it’s gonna stay dead in states like California and New York. All they’re gonna do is play in these deep red states and they’re gonna elect more radical and extreme people.”

That's no surprise. ObamaKare is just another Marxist welfare program. Nobody is going to volunteer to pay for what someone else should be paying for themselves.
Those living on the government plantation enroll in existing welfare programs like Medicaid. This was predicted before the Democrats forced it down everyone's throat.

Now pass on, this one small example of the fallacies of the republican’s erroneous policies and deceptions..
.
That is WHY some of us choose to remain Independent voters. Doing so allows us to vote with better conscience based upon PRINCIPLES, rather than herd pack, lemming, labelDUHM party labels.
Absolute power corrupts absolutely-no matter the sticky note label attached to it.

And if the current admin were seeking to follow actual principles, rather than megalomaniacal poliTical power grabs-they would've already COMPROMISED on the mounds beaurocraTic monstrous mess of out of control healthcare, and admit, they've fallen SHORT of fixing ANYTHING--and DELAYED PUNISHING innocent, struggling hard working people, for their own LACK of vision in how thing SHOULD work, rather than focusing on protecting the current MESS at all COSTS to EVERYONE, as if it were some sort of all perfect, grand design.

Because it's NOT.

And they should absolutely NOT be taxing and fining ANYONE, for such UNSECURED, UNVERFIABLE, UNFUNDED, UNSTABLE outcomes of Not Ready for prime time anything, let alone PURGE citizens of this nation into HIPPA violations and breaches of security, with out as much as a blink of an eye as to the ramifications of such RECKLESS abandonment.
And the fact that "leadership" would even venture to utter ANY words that condemn the attempts at something that demands such collosal efforts, and instead would allow OTHERS to shoulder the blame for releasing such NOT ready for prime time beaurocracy speaks volumnes unto itself--of the INEPTNESS and LACK of any REAL "leadership" these days.

If they'd acted like half reasonable adults, willing to work WITH others logically , rather than petulantly AGAINST everything, like three years having temper tantrums, it might be different. But they haven't, choosing to instead act like commie-dictators demanding it all "their way" or not at all, which just amounts to yet more FAILURE in actual leadership, in an admin now rife with it.

No matter the labelduhm label.

Congress shut down the parts when they refused to fund them.
"A 2010 Congressional Research Service report summarized other details of the 1995-1996 government shutdowns, indicating the shutdown impacted all sectors of the economy. Health and welfare services for military veterans were curtailed; the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention stopped disease surveillance; new clinical research patients were not accepted at the National Institutes of Health; and toxic waste clean-up work at 609 sites was halted. Other impacts included: the closure of 368 National Park sites resulted in the loss of some seven million visitors; 200,000 applications for passports and 20,000 to 30,000 applications for visas by foreigners went unprocessed each day; U.S. tourism and airline industries incurred millions of dollars in losses; more than 20% of federal contracts, representing $3.7 billion in spending, were affected adversely."
Closure of national parks.,
Again, you are shown to be wrong.
My God, get better informed. You are embarrassing yourself.
the open-air Memorials along with National Mall WERE NOT closed during the last government shutdown in 1995-1996. According to the Associated Press in an article from December 17, 1995:

“Tourists were free to wander the halls of the Capitol, touch the walls of the Vietnam Memorial and climb the steps of the Lincoln Memorial to read the Gettysburg Address – those and other similar sites don’t require supervision by federal employees.”

This picture below from 1995 shows how the visitors’ information center at the Lincoln Memorial was closed during the shutdown, but the public was still able to visit the site. This makes perfect sense. What the O'bama Administration did made no sense-of course Americans would expect nothing less from O'bama.

Here is the problem with the ObamaKare website:
DataTables is free, open source software that you can download and use for whatever purpose you wish, on any and as many sites you want. It is free for you to use! DataTables is available under two licenses: GPL v2 license or a BSD (3-point) license, with which you must comply (to do this, basically keep the copyright notices in the software).
For some reason, this clown act Obama has decided to eliminate the copyright notices from the software, setting off software bombs.
Every problem with the website was caused by Obama's "programmers" violating the copyright agreement and removing the copyright notices from the code... for some reason.
Now, why would anyone use free software, then change the code to make it appear as if they weren't using that software?
This is just part of being a pathological liar. It was important to them for ignorant people to think they are smart enough to write the code for the ObamaKare website.
The truth is, this is just another case where Al Bundy could be our president. His plan A blows up in his face, and he doesn't have a plan B.
This is not only the most incompetent administration in the history of this country, it is probably the most incompetent administration of any country in the history of civilization.
So, how much more money will it cost us to fix Barack Bundy's stupidity?
And, when will you dupes wake up?
