The benefits of having a strong, conservative president is that Americans tend to thrive.
That’s because conservatives truly believe the famous maxim: “Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.”
Most Americans believe this, but liberals continue exploiting the poor for votes and power.
Instead of becoming slaves to government handouts, Americans enjoy the opportunity to work. Work to earn their keep and enjoy a better life. Many just need to be shown how much better life is when they have good, fulfilling work.
That’s just what’s happening under President Trump, who is bringing back jobs and seeing a sharp drop in this one handout.
More than 1.1 million Americans dropped off the food stamp rolls since President Trump took office in January 2017, according to the latest U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) statistics on food stamp enrollment.
Participation in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) dropped to 41,496,255 in May 2017, the most recent data available from the USDA, from 42,691,363 in January 2017 when Trump took office…
Food stamp participation on average in 2017 has dropped to its lowest level since 2010, and the latest numbers show that this trend is continuing…
Trump proposed cuts to SNAP in his 2018 budget proposal, suggesting that states match up to 20 percent of federal money allotted for the food stamp program and expand work requirements for able-bodied adults receiving food stamps.
Trump’s crackdown on illegal immigration has also prompted many immigrants, both legal and illegal, to cancel their food stamps over concerns that they might be denied citizenship or deported.
Food stamps have been exploited by big business and lobbyists. Over 1/3 of junk food and soda sold in the United States are bought with food stamps. They are essentially helping poor Americans become fat and sick.
Yet people who buy food with their own money, tend to want to buy the best. They have greater choice in selecting healthy food.
Encouraging people to get off food stamps will help them make better choices and eat healthier. It will lessen a massive burden on the government and tax payer. And it will empower people to work for their food, not become dependent on the government.
More reforms at state and federal level have motivated more people to leave this program and seek better ways to support themselves. With the influx of over 1 million new jobs coming to America, that means these folks won’t go hungry.
