Ohioans’ food stamp aid to be reduced
Toledo Blade ^

Posted on 11/12/2012 11:11:06 AM PST by AppyPappy

Ohio families receiving food stamps could get an unwelcome surprise come January: $50 less every month in assistance.

For the 869,000 households enrolled in the program for the poorest Ohioans, that could amount to about $520 million annually out of the grocery budgets.

“This is a federal issue,” said Joel Potts, executive director of the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services Directors’ Association. “It is what it is. They have a formula. ... We just think it is going to be really hard on families and individuals. They will see significantly less money starting in January.”

This should have been paragraph number 1, not buried deep in the article.

Maybe some of the PACS need to put money into advertisements telling that it is a Fed issue, not state.

From Nonprofits Face Challenging End-of-Year Giving Season

With the government’s budget crisis and the expiration of the Bush-era tax cuts, significant tax changes could be on the horizon for 2013—and that makes a number of potential donors nervous. President Obama has mentioned potentially reducing or eliminating the tax deduction for charitable giving, a change which Delaney says could have a devastating impact on nonprofits. “There’s talk of limiting charitable giving in terms of the deductions, and in this time when needs are so great, Congress should not be tinkering with this very important tool,” he says.

For those who have no land of their own are you suggesting they come by your property and commandeer a section for their own agricultural use? Maybe I'll let your local community organizer know that grobdriver suggested that and welcomes the chance to share his resources.

They voted for Obama and their allowance is being reduced!

There is no such thing as showing gratitude to Obama voters. Now that the election is over, they can be thrown under the bus!

... Has anyone considered that the line for freebies is closed? Obama's reelected now so he's not in the market for votes, dead or otherwise.
Won't surprise me (but it will surprise the takers) when checks don't come and free phones go dead.

This is an excellent opportunity for faith based organizations, read “churches”, to set up co-op food and labor swaps for people in need. There is a good process for doing so, and it results in a lot of good for a lot of people.

It starts as an in-house process, to find out which current congregants are in need of food aid, which need some labor (usually the elderly or disabled), and who has surplus resources of anything, usually one type of food. Money is not part of the equation at this point.

With a healthy dollop of management, pretty soon food, cooked and uncooked, is shuffled around; the folks who need help around the house get their lives improved a lot; and those doing okay spend some time looking for surplus bargains, like bulk food sales, and maybe doing some cooking.

Often this results in far more abundance than is needed, so the next phase is to slowly start bringing outsiders in, based on both an invitation by congregants and the agreement to help them as well.

For the 869,000 households enrolled in the program for the poorest Ohioans,

Is that number before or after the recent boom in the last (delayed past the election) report on food stamp enrollment?

Because of the way the federal government calculates utility expenses for people receiving the benefit, a mild winter nationwide last year, and a lower price for natural gas, many families could experience a significant cut in aid, those familiar with the program say.

Blame it on the SUV, Satan's global warming machine.

Perhaps you’re right...then he will say it is the fault of the Republicans....
hmmm...

though he MAY want to keep the gravy train going a while for his zombies. At least until 2014.

Oh, who am I kidding? He doesn’t care who takes over then...just like he doesn’t care that the House is controlled by Republicans. He’ll ignore them just like he has ignored the Constitution for 4 years.

Private help to food banks, etc. is going to diminish, not increase. Those who DO pay taxes got a snootful of the ‘Obamaphone lady’ plus many other celebratory folks, happy that the ‘freebies’ will continue, or so they thought. Obama is not a compassionate guy - he said/did what he did to get re-elected and now that he has, he could care less about the ‘huddled masses’. What the ‘freebie voters’ didn’t count on was that taxpayers are SO disgusted, that many have decided not to give the freebie voters a chance to ‘double dip’ - if you are living on government assistance, then you will have to make due on government assistance and paid for by taxpayers who are not going to be making additional charitable contributions any longer.

From the last two-sentence paragraph:

"The Rev. Steve Anthony, executive director of Toledo Area Ministries, said, “It will put a strain on all organizations that provide emergency food. We’re going to have to find alternatives. We can’t pull food or money out of thin air."

But I guess they think the kenyan can; he's the magical half-negro.

And it PAYS! Some prescription drugs are in big demand on the street and people pay big bucks for them.

--Oxycontin: $50 to $80 on the street, vs. $6 when sold legally --Oxycodone: $12 to $40 on the street, vs. $6 retail
--Hydrocodone: $5 to $20 vs. $1.50
--Percocet: $10 to $15 vs. $6
--Vicodin: $5 to $25 vs. $1.50

Taken from Prescription drugs worth millions to dealers

I worked next to the welfare office and one day their secretary packed her stuff and quit. She said the clients were getting more in freebie benefits than she was working a 40 hour week and she was fed up.

Yes, free breakfasts and lunches at our public school... my tax dollars.
