why isn't EMPLOYERS included in that list?? I mean maybe if the employers did a better job of ensuring their employees were fed, they wouldn't be draining the funds from the food stamp program and those funds could be used to feed some of these completely destitute people?

Need some confirmation on this news, it's also being reported on RT New (which, is why I'm requesting confirmation); I knew about 3 months ago this was coming and about 2 months ago, I thought it was already in place since I had to renew my app for EBT, which is odd, since I remember doing it just 3 months before.

I'm really hoping that this isn't so but......
Not all, but most could get a job.
I lived and worked around these types for a long time.
I will always support cutting the hand outs. I work two jobs to make ends meet, and I have a broken spine from a car accident, it causes pain every day, you don't see me crying and asking for a handout.
