Skip to comments.More Than 1.1 Million Fewer Americans on Food Stamps Under Trump
Posted on 08/07/2017 1:24:29 PM PDT by be-baw
According to the latest data, SNAP enrollment during the first few months of Trumps presidency decreased by 2.79 percent.
Food stamp participation on average in 2017 has dropped to its lowest level since 2010, and the latest numbers show that this trend is continuing.
Federal lawmakers are also working on legislation that would seek to expand food stamp work requirements and put time limits on how long those enrolled in the food stamp program can receive benefits.
At the state level, food stamp enrollment dropped significantly in places such as Georgia and Alabama once they instituted work requirements for able-bodied adults to receive food stamps. Both states fully implemented work requirements for food stamp recipients in 2016-2017.

How many are actually real and how many were fake?
Program should be abolished
Along with Sec 8 housing
And all “affirmative action” preferences
Feed yourselves, house yourselves, earn your keep
Some leftist MSM will probably turn this into a story about Trump making the poor go hungry, by reducing the Food Stamp recipients.
As long as they can cut the abusers and ripoff artists first. And people who are able to work. I’m all for it! Go Trump! MAGA !!
The article claims that a lot of the reduction is from illegals withdrawing from the program for fear of getting busted.
It needs to drop to zero. ZERO. The only govt. institution that should be feeding ANYONE are military members, their families, and at Veteran homes. Let the churches take care of the rest. Once we turn off the tit of benefits, illegals will leave, and the lazy will work or starve.
Read that illegals are going hungry because they are scared to get their food stamps.
*head scratch* How can you even apply for food stamps if you aren’t a legal citizen and show an ID or give a social?
Could I just create an alter ego as an undocumented immigrant and get myself some free foodstamps?
Whenever we have an apt for rent and people email us about it(Put the ad on craigslist) the second they mention if we accept Section 8 housing I just delete the email. If I had to bet some of those people no longer collecting food stamps are in this country illegally..they should NOT be getting any benefits anyway, they come here to sponge off the Govt..for life
Not that its not headed in the right direction but...
Obama raised that number to 10+ million.
So, does that mean about 9 million more slacker need to get off their bums just to get to pre-ubama numbers?
How many fewer foreigners?
“How many fewer foreigners?”
I doubt that’s knowable.
Kinda like the Barry Soetoro nightmare never even happened.
No. Your morals would get in the way.
Disagree. There are people who are working hard who still need assistance. Some come to church for help. There are elderly who have no other options.
Get rid of the FRAUD and 3/4 of the battle will have been won.
