Food stamp participation dropped below 40 million for the first time in eight years, according to the latest numbers on food stamp enrollment from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).

The most recent USDA data reveals that 39,604,428 people were enrolled in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)—the program that administers food stamps—as of April 2018. The last time enrollment dipped below 40 million was in February 2010, when 39,588,993 people received SNAP benefits.
Republicans sign checks on the front, democrats sign them on the back…True story!

The impending work requirement
It's been falling since 2012, as employment improved.

Trump is a living saint. Under Obama, 50 million Americans were on food stamp.

Trump has been helping Americans to learn how to fish, without relying on a bottomless public food basket............... :biggrin:
