Food Stamp Families to Lose 16 Meals a Month

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program a/k/a “SNAP” a/k/a “food stamps” is about to be DRASTICALLY slashed on November 1st.

In these days when the very idea of being represented by a union seems to be radical again, thanks to Joe Baca (I had to go look you up!) for this:

Amends the Food and Nutrition Act of 2008 to eliminate the provision making a federal, state, or local government employee who is dismissed for participating in a strike against the federal government, the state, or a political subdivision of the state ineligible for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly food stamps).
