  • Sorry, you heard wrong. Well maybe not because he says a lot that he doesn't do but it isn't happening. In fact the most recent bailout congress signed into law for teachers uses food stamp money to help pay for it. That's a cut to food the stamp program

  • PP is right. He is going to reduce the FS benefit to pay for one of his projects. So much for his promise that lower income people won't be affected at all by anything he does.

  • I wonder if Obama does have a point though- Studies show that better education increases ones income which would mean people wouldn't need as much Government aid.

    Still to cut benefits during a recession seems kinda heartless.

  • Just in case you were not convinced you will not be getting a raise in food stamps, I read today that they may be going to the cookie jar again to fund Michele Obamas Children's Health Initiative
