There Were 42,691,363 Food Stamp Recipients – Guess How Many There Are NOW

A new report from United States Department of Agriculture reveals that the food stamp rolls have decreased massively since President Trump became the new president of the United States.

 

But How Massively you may ask?

 

The amount of recipients in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program in January was 42,691,363 and in May dropped to 41,496,255. That’s a staggering 2.79 % drop. This would be the lowest number of people on food stamps since 2010.

 

The President has made the lowering of food stamp recipients one of his top priorities and plans to reach an even lower number by 2018.

According to Politico, “A small part of those savings would come from tightening work requirements for able-bodied individuals, but the vast majority of the proposed sum would come from making states match 20 percent of the federal SNAP outlay.”

 

“The documents released by (the Office of Management and Budget) didn’t provide details on where all the cuts would be generated. But a lengthy table included among the newly released budget docs proposes raising $2.3 billion in SNAP retailer fees over the next decade to help defray costs of the program.”

 

A big factor that goes into play as well is that many homes that house illegal immigrants have pulled out of the program in fear that their illegal members of residence could be deported because of recent regime change on immigration due to President Trump.
