Don't forget the drugs, booze and smokes. Those 3 things right there come to a heck of a lot more than $29. Oh and the strip joints and cassino's too...It may have taken me 3 years to get a job, but I finally got one...I did not go ask for 'assistance' from the idiots in Washington that has CAUSED this massive cut either. I warned people of this years ago, but guess what folks, the worse is yet to come.

Surely a family can cut back on something to come up with a $29 loss to their SNAP. When I see some of the people using this program talking/using Iphones, I have to wonder how they can afford it with what it cost to have the access for it. We cannot afford that. Do they have cable, internet, video game systems, flat screen TV's? Just wondering......
