Last year, the US gov gave out $74.6 BILLION in food stamps.
So, I say we cut everyones food stamps by 10%. All you have to do is cut your eating habits a bit. A meat free meal, a couple less bags of chips, dont get that soda on your lunch break, maybe shop at a cheaper store, use coupons, etc and you have met your pay cut.
$7,460,000,000 <--------thats how much would be saved every year if we cut it by 10%
I used to spend $120 in food every week, my husbands hours were cut so we went down to $80 a week. You know what, its harder but doable. That is a little over a 30% cut. btw-we have 5 people in our family.
