Trump Admin To Kick Hundreds Of Thousands Of 'Able-Bodied' Off Food Stamps

2019-12-05 02:21:09

The Trump administration plans to kick hundreds of thousands of Americans off food stamps. On Wednesday, it finalized a rule that would increase federal enforcement of the safety-net program. It's part of a broader initiative to limit access to SNAP, which also includes proposals to shift its eligibility formula. Under the new rule, able-bodied adults without children would face stricter work requirements for enrollment. Markets Insider reports the US Department of Agriculture estimates up to 688,000 Americans will be kicked off SNAP. Internal estimates indicate the policy would save the government more than $5 billion over five years. We need to encourage people by giving them a helping hand but not allowing it to become an indefinitely giving hand. USDA Secretary Sonny Perdue.
