CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - A temporary increase in food stamps expires Oct. 31, meaning for millions of Americans, the benefits that help put food on the table won't stretch as far as they have for the past four years.
Food stamps - actually the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program - go to 47 million Americans a month, almost half of them children and teenagers.

Oh wait...............Obama killed jobs.
They may have to buy day old lobster.
>>>Food stamps - actually the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program - go to 47 million Americans a month, almost half of them children and teenagers.<<<
In other words, MORE THAN HALF of them go to ADULTS.
They may have to buy their drugs from a different dealer. She might have to ask "the daddy" for milk money...
No arugula for them!
Okay....for the 6,891st. time....the reason you DON’T do “TEMPORARY” hikes in benefit programs is because...
What’s the big deal? They can just go to any local school and 3 meals a day... FREE!
The raise they got in their food stamp money was part of a stimulus package. It was temporary. Guess they’ll have to give up a couple trips to the casinos....where they accept their little charge cards.
get a job you evil, lazy, socialist welfare leeches. these welfare scum are all scum
Agreed. If they could stop the fraud, they could easily afford the rest of the program.
eliminate all welfare and 99% of the government
it’s not needed
Not all of them. Some seniors receive benefits. I can see widows with children needing help too. But it shouldn't be government doing it. Less taxes means more money for charities to help those who actually need it.
So now our poor here in America will starve. I haven’t seen too many famished poor people in America unless it is at the hand of delinquent parents.
In fact, you can buy food stamps at $.50/$1.00 on the black market exchange. And that exchange is set up by poor people. Why? Because they get more than they need or can use. They turn food stamps into I-pods, computers, TVs and automobiles.
>>>Danielle Walker, 37, was shopping at a discount Aldi store in Morgantown, W.Va., with what little cash she had, the end of September still three days away. Her food stamps had run out because of a previous cut from $500 to $61 a month that came about when the father of her 12-year-old son died, giving the boy survivor benefits that changed the family’s income level.<<<
So she is complaining that when she got additional undeserved benefits from one taxpayer ripoff scheme, her benefits from another were reduced by a smaller amount?
Free Breakfast, Free Lunch, plus Food Stamps.
I know of a third grade class where none of the students understand it take money to buy food.
There’s an 0bamaCard for food.
Along with food stamps we need to cut back on Postage Stamps. In this age the Postal service is about as necessary as a side saddle on a hog.
