House Votes to Cut Food Stamps by $40 Billion

1.  The Article

2. Consumer/Financial

3. National Level

4.This is a policy that will affect millions of citizens.

5. This is a huge cut from a program that helps millions of people who need the assistance of Food Stamps. If they do end up cutting 40 billion dollars from the budget people's health will only worsen. Families struggle with the amount of money they get for Food Stamps and now it's going to become less, the results will not be great.
6. I personally don't think this will have a good outcome at first. It's going to hit hard many families that rely heavily on this assistance. I understand the reasoning and why Republicans see this as a positive thing for our citizens but it is not that easy to get jobs like they think it is. People that rely on SNAP rely on it for a reason, that report FOX News made of that one case does not justify them passing this cut. It is true that money goes unclaimed but this goes to show that people are not informed, people who could benefit from this program. I don’t think they should cut money from this program, if anything we should spending from areas that we spend highly on like the military. Families that have food stamps struggle greatly with the little assistance they get and not that they are going to make these cuts, it’s only going to get more difficult for families to get by.
