The Senate last week passed their own version of the bill, which cuts $12 billion beginning in 2014 from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance, or “food stamps,” program
to help make the measure deficit neutral. Anti-hunger advocates and conservatives alike decried the move.
“We’re taking money from feeding poor kids so middle class teachers don’t have to look for jobs,” said Frederick M. Hess, director of the Education Policy Studies at the American Enterprise Institute, a conservative think tank.
The bill has spawned criticism from poverty issue advocates as well, who have voiced dissent over the depletion of funding for the food stamp program.
Where to begin? This is one of the reasons why entitlement programs should be killed at the federal level and left up to the states to decide. In addition this is why Unions should be left only to the private sector, if you dont like being on the public dime then join the private sector like the rest of us.
