I guess the EBT shutdown over the weekend was a demonstration of what can be expected to happen.

Is this related to the Farm Bill where they reduced the increase (aka “cut” in DCese) in food stamp funds?

No, this was being funded by the $1 trillion annual infusion of invented money into the economy. So no tax savings.

Utah families on food stamps could be cut off soon

http://fox13now.com/2013/10/14/utah-families-on-food-stamps-could-be-cut-off-soon/

States across the country are being told to stop the supplemental nutrition assistance program for the month of November, pending further notice.

That’s according to a letter from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Fox 13 obtained a copy from the Crossroads Urban Center in downtown Salt Lake City. Crossroads says if Utah families don’t get food stamps, they’ll turn to the local food pantries, which are already strapped due to the government shutdown. Homeless people Fox 13 talked to, some who use SNAP, say losing food stamps would mean going hungry.

You’ll be able to spot the Blue States by just following the smoke plumes...

Threat of course, aimed at doing to the House what the threat of a global economic collapse did to Bush in 2007.

Same as your local school board does whenever the teachers union demands more money - threaten to cut high school football and band.

Thuggery.

Where did that photocopied letter come from ?

“USDA” with no link is not exactly a source.

What exactly is the reason for the cutoff? None of the bureaucratese in that letter mentions that.

On another thread a Utah reporter said the same thing - these letters are going out to the states.

The “^” is an arrow pointing up to what is above the line. It means I agree with the comment above the line in a foundational way and am using my post to amplify it.

It’s pretty commonly used these days all over the internet.

Thanks for sourcing the story.

And here’s the original posting of the letter by a local food bank:

“Every EBT piglet that I’ve ever seen could stand to go a few months without their slop. Obese, every one.”

The only thin ones are the ones whacked out on Meth or crack, who trade EBT cards and purchases for drugs.

If they get the funding are they still going to shut it down?

The temporary EBT shutdown and ensuing chaos followed by the release of this letter certainly raise suspicions of a coordinated attack.

Does that mean they won’t ship containers of EBT resources to Kenya anymore?

So America ‘feels the pain’ of the shutdown obviously.

They have money for barricades and riot cops but not one cop to watch people visit memorials?

It’s all a staged pinch so the MSM can direct anger to the GOP and distract people from how horrible Obamacare is.

The date stamped on the letter looks very suspect. If it was an official document, the date would have been typed on the letter.
