"Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said Wednesday that in looking at deeper work requirements, Republicans are ignoring who actually gets food stamps. He said 92 percent of recipients are children, the elderly, disabled or people who are already working."
so this is about the other 8%?
how about some decent infrastructure jobs? Perhaps that would employ some people and get some money moving through the system.

People are on/using food stamps because they can't find work/good enough job. You want to disincentivize people investigate the fraud first. It will save money. Investigate food stamp fraud in the big cities were it is probably the most rampant.
New York food stamp recipients buying food and shipping it to the Caribbean.
Other food stamp fraud cases in the millions
Fix the program before you trim it or eliminate it. Find the fraud and you'll find lots of savings.

Here is a perfect example of a food stamp recipient that should be forced to work. From a Fox news report.
California beach bum-literally living life at the beach including a daily surf and lobster.
The guy doesn't care which is fine but do not do it on the tax payers dime. It would be an empty life for me living life at the beach on charity.
I'm appalled by his lack of shame but not surprised. This is a perfect example of a need for a work requirement.
