LOL! Trump says Food Stamp benefits will be cut in half and instead of putting money on an EBT card he's just going to send recipients a pre-made government meal including peanut butter and beans. Lord Have Mercy!!

Trump Administration Wants To Decide What Food SNAP Recipients Will Get
February 12, 20183:21 PM ET

The Trump administration is proposing a major shake-up in one of the country's most important "safety net" programs, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly known as food stamps. Under the proposal, most SNAP recipients would lose much of their ability to choose the food they buy with their SNAP benefits.

The proposal is included in the Trump administration budget request for fiscal year 2019. It would require approval from Congress.

Under the proposal, which was announced Monday, low-income Americans who receive at least $90 a month — just over 80 percent of all SNAP recipients — would get about half of their benefits in the form of a "USDA Foods package." The package was described in the budget as consisting of "shelf-stable milk, ready to eat cereals, pasta, peanut butter, beans and canned fruit and vegetables." The boxes would not include fresh fruits or vegetables.

Currently, SNAP beneficiaries get money loaded onto an EBT card they can use to buy what they want as long as it falls under the guidelines. The administration says the move is a "cost-effective approach" with "no loss in food benefits to participants."---cut---

You're right. He probably just thinks this targeted at Black and Brown people but White people are still the majority of folks on food stamps.

Yeah I read about this.

Very disrespectful.

You dont feed the same food to an puppy that you do to an old dog. People have different needs and wants and if you put something in a box that they may not like and or is allergic to, it will just go to waste.

And they should be the ones on the front lines fighting to preserve the program as is. But we know black folks are going to be the ones seen on camera, up in arms doing the fighting! We all know that poor whites benefit the most from the food stamp program, welfare, Medicaid, and that white women benefit the most from affirmative action, yet whenever any of the these programs are threatened, we are complicit and all to eager to put a black face on them. I say now is as good of time as any to sit this one out.,Smile

As bad as this administration is going it might be in the plans of Jesus he might not get anything that looks as disgusting as beans to go with his Peanut butter. You live by the sword you will also die by the sword.

LOL! I do remember my aunt sending over those blocks of government cheese. But what you've forgotten is that was supplemental food that the government received from subsidizing farmers. It wasn't meant to replace the benefits you received if you were in the program. You got your benefits plus the extra food.

Oh yes, white people are the majority of people in the food stamp program. The stereotype though is that its all Black and Brown folks.

I'm guessing that the average black person doesn't understand percentages.....
