They completely cut off food stamps here where I live. Even those who got their money this month can not even use their cards. I saw it at my local Walmart no more than 15 minutes ago. It was eerily quite and their were at least 50-60 carts lined up full of food that people who were using PA had to leave. It was painful to see. Each cart represents a chid who possibly could go without food tonight. 

Though I was hoping the shutdown would last a month, I NEVER thought they would invalidated funds already given out. I was hoping people would at least be given the option of budgeting as tight as they could so their benefits could last a month or two. To just rob people of money they were already given seems so cruel and a complete injustice. Especially to those who were trying to budget and save as much as they could.

 I don't think I'm going to get much sleep tonight.

I heard that. I didn't check our local stores. But I also said a quick prayer for them. It hurts knowing someone somewhere is without tonight bc of it.

 Way to be dramatic. 

If there is anyone going hungry tonight, it's because of their irresponsible parents.  Smh at the stupidity.

I made a post about this hours ago and crickets is all it has seen. :/ mine was more about WIC. They are closing the doors on our local office on the 15th. WIC only covers pregnant or breastfeeding women and children under five. Seriously? Come on now.
