Help Stop Trump's Cuts In Food AssistanceAugust 5, 2019
Sign my petition to oppose President Trump’s efforts to cut 11,000 working families, seniors and individuals with disabilities off of food assistance.
Trump has proposed major cutbacks on the eligibility for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), commonly known as food stamps.
If implemented, thousands of seniors, children, working poor and individuals with disabilities will be eliminated from a long standing program designed to help our most vulnerable. This includes children who would lose access to lunches and breakfasts at school.
This short-sighted proposal would dis-incentivize people from working to earn extra income and punish those trying to save for an emergency such as medical needs.
Any way you look at it, this represents a continuance of mean-spirited policies aimed at our less fortunate friends and neighbors.
