“We need people to go to work,” Mick Mulvaney, director of the Office of Management and Budget, told reporters in May. “If you’re on food stamps and you’re able-bodied, we need you to go to work. If you’re on disability insurance and you’re not supposed to be—if you’re not truly disabled—we need you to go back to work.”
Boteach, of the Center for American Progress, says cutting benefits does not help people find work. “Taking away someone’s food isn’t going to help them find a job any faster,” she says. “If you want to help people connect to jobs, then you should focus on creating jobs and policies that raise wages and address barriers that people are facing,” such as issues finding childcare or with criminal records.

So basically gigantic tax cuts for the mega rich, giving them millions more in their pockets, and a gigantic tax cut for the super poor, taking food out their mouths?
