Posted on 09/08/2019 2:47:06 PM PDT by E. Pluribus Unum
More than 6.2 million individuals dropped off food stamps since President Donald Trump completed his first full month in office, according to the latest data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). The most recent USDA data shows that 6,268,285 individuals discontinued their participation in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) the program in charge of food stamps since February 2017 when Trump finished his first month as president.
Individual and household food stamp participation has consistently declined since 2013 back when the Obama administration was in power and enrollment in the program reached its highest point in U.S. history.
After 2013, SNAP enrollment plunged once state legislatures passed laws requiring food stamp recipients to work, attend school, volunteer, or participate in job training for at least 20 hours per week to receive benefits.
Food stamp participation plummeted even further once President Trump took office, as 6.2 million individuals and 2.7 million households dropped out of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) since his first full month in office.
There are currently 36,029,506 individuals and 18,230,968 households enrolled in the food stamp program, but USDA officials said those numbers are preliminary due to the 2018 government shutdown, which affected food stamp administration at the beginning of 2019.

Let me guess:
Women and minorities hardest hit?
That EVIL Trump!!!!
What does that translate into dollars not spent by the government?
Translation: illegals and fraudulent recipients were worried about being found out and prosecuted.
6,200,000 x $20,0000 average per person = $124,000,000,000
Fixing typo above:
6,200,000 x $20,000 average per person = $124,000,000,000
Some but more likely, they went back into the workforce because there were stable jobs.
124 billion, that is a lot of bucks.
Good job President Trump!
Yes. President Trump:
And he is opposed and vilified with open calls for his assassination and the destruction of his family!
A man with 50+ years' experience building a multibillion dollar international financial empire! Who is not only a genius but an expert on business, economics, and finance!
Who gave up the luxurious lifestyle of a multibillionaire to save the USA from those who hate it and intend to destroy it and from the decadence of Western Civilization!
Who has made the US economy BOOM! with record unemployment, including the highest unemployment in Black America in history!
Whose announced objective is the revitalization and the prosperity of America's inner cities!
Who donates his presidential salary to charity!
Whose super-rich children work as hard as anyone and have stable, happy lives!
Who loves the USA and believes in the American Dream!
Whose rallying cry is "Make America Great!"
This is how deep into the depths of madness Western Civilization has descended in its decadent phase and how deep into the depths of depravity those who oppose him have descended.
“Translation: illegals and fraudulent recipients were worried about being found out and prosecuted.”
Not only that, even green card-holders should be worried and methinks they know they should not even be on the govt welfare rolls.
Bodega’s are hurting
$124 Billion would build one hell of a WALL!
Hope we can take an equal number off the inflated disability rolls, where they reduced the unemployment statistic during the Obama regime.
Are they counting the 8 million illegals that are going on welfare now?
How dare President Trump make people work for their food. /sarc
