This story comes to us from the great state of…

The Obama administration managed to lengthen the fuse on the layoff bomb so it didn’t detonate until after the election, and you have to wonder how much coordination went into making sure these notices weren’t mailed out until the voting was over in the Buckeye State:

Ohio families receiving food stamps could get an unwelcome surprise come January: $50 less every month in assistance.

For the 869,000 households enrolled in the program for the poorest Ohioans, that could amount to about $520 million annually out of the grocery budgets.

Because of the way the federal government calculates utility expenses for people receiving the benefit, a mild winter nationwide last year, and a lower price for natural gas, many families could experience a significant cut in aid, those familiar with the program say.

Recipients should get a letter from the state Department of Job and Family Services this month explaining the change, said Ben Johnson, a spokesman for the agency.

As Glenn Reynolds would put it, “they told me if I voted for Mitt Romney food stamp benefits would be cut, and they were right.”

We knew WIC & FS were going to be cut in 2013 no matter who is President. There NEEDS to be cuts.

 So people complain because they claim that they give too much in food stamps. NOW, he is an ass because they cut back. Clearly, it doesn't matter what happens, people will find fault with him.

Zilla, you really should think about cultivating a hobby... All this negativity can't be good for your spirit.

According to the OP the letter in question was sent by the Ohio STATE Dept of Jobs and Family Services. What do Obama or the Feds have to do with it?
