Yep. The yearly cost for the food stamp program is less than 10% of the deficit. The whole program could be shut down, but that wouldn’t save the government from default. The total cost of pork from federal government to state and local governments, though, is sky high (regulator/overseer costs, public education, other so-called “family” programs, etc.).

All entitlements and pork together eat up a majority of the annual spending I think
