One in seven Americans qualify for food stamps. Registration is promoted in the electronic media by the Agriculture Dept. The big rise in food stamp participation has been in this current administration. Food stamps is not just for the poor anymore.
Sen. Sessions of Alabama tried to pass reasonable legislation in the Senate to curb abuses, with a federal asset test. Who could oppose such a measure ? All the Democrats in the Senate, but one !
Democrats give more solid evidence that they are as “political” as the Republicans.
Wonder how all these food stamp enlistees will vote? No doubt, many will need a free ride to the polls. Democrats can work that out too. Maybe, a new transportation entitlement.
