Title: Trump Administration Moves to End Food Stamps for 750,000

 The Trump administration will announce a plan Wednesday to end food stamps benefits for about 750,000 Americans, issuing a new regulation that makes it harder for states to gain waivers from a requirement that beneficiaries work or participate in a vocational training program, according to people familiar with the matter.

Conservatives have long sought cuts in the federal food assistance program for the poor. House Republicans tried to impose similar restrictions last year when Congress renewed the program but were rebuffed in the Senate.

The work requirement only applies to “able-bodied” recipients who aren’t caring for a child under 6 years old.

The measure would be the first of three Trump administration initiatives curtailing food stamp benefits to take effect. The Urban Institute estimated in an analysis last month that the measures together would cut 3.7 million beneficiaries from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or SNAP, often known by its previous name, food stamps.

I will say that this article only adds to my ire when I  hear people say thank you for your service.  Everyone in the USA should be raising LLLLL about this instead of giving veterans lip service.  You want to thank them, write the white house and tell Trump off.

I can't wait.  Do it! 

This is what the American people wanted when they gave control to the GOP in Congress and in multiple states and voted in Trump.  So do it!  I can't wait till they gut social security and medicaid too.
