  • Not just kids. People don't realize the sheer number of elderly who cannot survive without it, and many with nobody to check on them. This will probably kill some people. That's not being dramatic, only realistic.

  • This is ridiculous. Bunch of people STILL receiving their (large) paychecks throwing a temper tantrum because they can't get their way when it's hurting the little people - freaking CHILDREN - and their demands are more important than the children who could now not have food next month? Why would they still get paid if they're having to cut funding to people who NEED it?

    They should honestly just be fired and replaced. There should be a stipulation that if they can't get their job done they lose it, none of this holding their breath while other people basically strangle to death.

    Sorry, this just ticks me off.

  • That is going to hurt a lot of people, especially with Thanksgiving right around the corner.

  • I don't get food stamps but a lot of people in my town do. A LOT. I would expect theft to go up. A LOT.
