Snip SNAP

House Republicans have proposed a $39 billion cut to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program over the next decade. It is the second time the GOP has tried to cut the food stamps benefit used by more than 47 million people in the latest count taken in June. The White House has threatened to veto such legislation, which would leave 4 million people scrambling for an alternative.
