I read this morning that President Trump wants to cut the food stamp program and have government buy nutritious foods that recipients would have to pick up from government agencies. A lot of canned meats and veggies would be past out every month along with powdered milk a lot of rice and beans which trump said are very healthy for people. It almost sounds like he wants to go back to the surplus foods that were given out years ago when we were kids.
As I read this I thought Trump and GOP & DEMS better be prepared for major backlash from food stamp recipients because they won't be able to buy junk foods or other unhealthy foods. Also look for our grocery prices to go up for us as theft in stores increase. I foresee home invasions increasing to sustain drug addicts lifestyles since the addicts won't be able to sell their food stamps if the program is cut.
I know when I took a couple of college courses a few years back, kids and adults who attended classes were trying to sell the food stamps to others for money. These were people whose families were on welfare. They were doing this right out in the open being quite bold about it if I may say so. No discretion at all.
As for food stamp users maybe this is a good thing that they will have the government buying their groceries every month. I have stood behind slovenly women and men in the area grocery stores that use the abt cards and their carts are always filled with junk and very expensive items and then they hit up all the free dinners given by churches in the area. Welfare and Food stamp people really know how to use the system.
