Well since Trump "announced" a slight reduction in Food Stamps, looks like some people are getting serious.

but wait

It must be because of all the economic policies from years ago right?

SNAP crackle POP (sugarless of course)


More Than 1.1 Million Fewer Americans on Food Stamps Under Trump


More than 1.1 million Americans dropped off the food stamp rolls since President Trump took office in January 2017, according to the latest U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) statistics on food stamp enrollment.
Participation in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) dropped to 41,496,255 in May 2017, the most recent data available from the USDA, from 42,691,363 in January 2017 when Trump took office.

According to the latest data, SNAP enrollment during the first few months of Trump’s presidency decreased by 2.79 percent.

Food stamp participation on average in 2017 has dropped to its lowest level since 2010, and the latest numbers show that this trend is continuing.

And how many dropped off SNAP the last 9 months of Obama's administration?

Let's be honest with the numbers here.

Typical Trump propaganda, peddling fake news again...

SNAP use has already been decreasing, and it had nothing to do with Trump:



SNAP caseloads began falling in 2014 and continued falling in 2015. SNAP caseload growth slowed substantially in 2012 and 2013, and caseloads fellby about 2 percent in 2014 and another 2 percent in 2015. For more than two years, fewer people have participated in SNAP each month than in the same month one year earlier. The number of people receiving SNAP has fallen by 2.6 million people since peaking in December 2012.[4] In 42 states, the number of SNAP participants was lower in December 2015 than in December 2012.[5]

But typical Trumpism -- take credit and ride on the coat tails of someone/something else. Take something that you didn't have anything to do with and take credit for it.

Based on power vs impact area ... would Super Trump's small hands make for a more lethal punch?

On topic. Great to see. If business owners have faith in the economic recovery ... then the recovery will happen.

From the same source I posted above:



CBO expects that as the economy improves, the number of participants will fall by about 2 to 4 percent each year over the next decade: from 45.8 million in fiscal year 2015 to 44.7 million in 2016, 42.8 million in 2017, and 33.1 million by 2026.[15] By 2026, CBO forecasts that the share of the population receiving SNAP will return close to 2007 levels, at about 9 percent. (See Figure 4.)[16]


Trump is simply inheriting an existing trend.

People are saying the number of people on SNAP is down under Trump like he's somehow responsible for it.

Trump is not responsible for this.

The numbers were already dropping under Obama.

The source cites CBO numbers. You know, the government agency that tracks this sort of thing.

According to Obama Bush was responsible for all the crappy aspects for many years. SO perhaps you are right.

You're more than free to dig around on the CBO's website if you want...They seem to be down at the moment. At least for me.
