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.
