The High Price of Food Stamps

Timothy Birdnow

We've always known it. Now a study proves it's true:

Explosive study lays bare the cost of food stamps and their $135 BILLION 'culture of dependency'

* Republicans want to shave $30 billion off food aid in the Farm Bill this month
* Budget expert says cuts hurt 'children, older adults, and people with disabilities'.

The food stamps scheme used by 42 million US residents has become too widespread and costly and hooks recipients on welfare, new research shows.

The conservative Economic Policy Innovation Center (EPIC) in a report urgesCongressto pare back a ballooning program by requiring more beneficiaries to work when they can.

The study comes amid mounting challenges for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), which helps low-income families buy groceries, snacks, and non-alcoholic drinks.

Washington lawmakers are poised to release the text of an updated Farm Bill within days, with Republicans gunning to trim $30 billion worth of nutrition program funding over 10 years.
