Speculating that possibly part of the Democrats' strategy here is to create protests and complaints by those who receive foodstamps if foodstamps get cut off due to a government shutdown.

I recognize this is a 2015 article here, just theorizing that the same policies discussed may apply, and that this may be part of what the Democrats' end game may be, creating looting, rioting, and or complaints from those who receive foodstamps. Certain urban and rural areas could potentially experience this if food stamps are cut off to their recipients.

Info. I am reading today also mentions it being unclear how the military would get paid after February 1 if the shutdown continues.

The Democrats say its OK and worth the pain to legalize foreign competitors for jobs that Americans need.

This shut down could last and last. The Dims are so foolish to think they can shoe horn illegal aliens into our funding of government, They need to get this strait. NO DACA without 100% of the WALL pre paid. NO CHAIN!! Zero!! Merit only legal immigration!! Get that crap lottery out of here!! We won. We are in charge, Elections have consequences. You threw us in the briar patch with the shut down and we LOVE!!! the shut down. It makes us happy and giddy. We want the shut down for months!!

Trump should tell congress that he will veto the spending bill if it does not fund the gov’t through Sep 30, does mot fund the complete wall, and if it includes DACA amnesty, chain migration, immigration lotteries, diversity quotas, etc. If Congress wants to override the veto, they will have to come up with two thirds majority in both houses. He should go on TV and throw the ball back into their court and hound them every day on TV until they get it right.

I doubt that it is true, but I hope it is. Once the EBT cards no longer work, we all know what will happen in the inner cities. Win Win.

Totally on board with this stance. It is the right stance for America, the right stance for President Trump! MAGA!

Budget Director Mulvaney stated on Special Report *FNC* Friday evening that the current shut down will NOT be weaponized as was BO’Bs So that was the....during the dark Won’s reign. This is now with TRUMP holding the cards.

"suspend or delay food stamp payments to some of the 46 million Americans who receive the food aid. "

That was in 2015, when bozo ruled, when unemployment was high.

What a difference a few years make.

2018. President Trump.

Unemployment is low, jobs are being created.

Food stampers can now go and get a job! They will not starve. They must learn to stop depending on the government because even the government is not dependable.

Now let's discuss the real issue. The Military.

No way. The Dems will find a way to hand out the freebies in order to buy more votes.

I did a little research earlier and at the time of that shutdown they had not done appropriations. If they did Appropriations last year then Food Stamps are OK.

Whoa, there FRiend. While I understand your strong emotions on the matter, let’s try not to forget that there are more than a few of your fellow FReepers (myself included) that live in the big cities (LA). When the leftists riot, they bus their troops into the inner cities and folks like myself are outnumbered and out-gunned, and the cops turn tail and run. So please take care with what you hope for.

I may be armed but it’s just me and I have no desire to become a martyr or a statistic.

Thanks.

All
DJT needs to do is cut costs by 15% and Feds run cash flow positive.

Anyone think Trump will have a hard time cutting 15% without hurting regular Americans ?

Anyone think Trump hasn’t been planning for this since day 1 ?

That’s why he has Carl Ichan on board

It would be terrible if food stamp recipients had use their drug money to buy food.

It’s a good thing. If food stamps get cut off maybe the price of steak will come down so the rest of us not on food stamps will be able to afford them.

You mean some of those no loads will actually have to get a job? Now that is a plus for the shutdown.
