for a damn wall,
trump is about to put of thousands in jeopardy.
so as you know,
trump has shut the government down.
he claims it’s until he gets funding for his wall,
one of which i thought mexico was paying for.
so our w2s are on hold,
federal workers aren’t getting paid,
and other government funded programs are in limbo.
food stamps are in that vortex as well.
i read this shit on “cbs news” today and…
The partial millions of Americans who receive benefits from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) — the nation’s food stamp program — could have their assistance disrupted.glided into its third week Saturday with no end in sight. If the government is not reopened before February,
The U.S. Department of Agriculture, which oversees SNAP at the federal level, is one of the agencies unfunded during the partial government shutdown. Although SNAP is automatically renewed, it has not been allocated funding from Congress beyond January. Congress has appropriated $3 billion in emergency funds for SNAP distribution, but that would not cover all of February’s obligations.
In September 2018, the last month for which data is available, $4.7 billion in SNAP benefits were disbursed throughout every state. If the shutdown continues through March, there will be no remaining funding for SNAP, endangering food security for millions of Americans.
even tho this really serious foxhole,
but i’m partly amused tho.
many of his die hard stans are on food stamps.
it’s not just blacks from the hood.
many white folks in poorer states depend on food stamps as well.
as mo’nique said:
i don’t what it will take for this hyena to get impeached.
how low do we have to keep going?
lowkey: i feel sorry for the innocent and the cubs in all this.
