U.S. Government Cuts Food Stamps By $5 Billion – Giving Israel $40 Billion

47 million people in the United States just lost some or all of their Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits today. Congress allowed the SNAP allocations built into the stimulus bill President Obama signed into law in 2009 to expire and therefore by inaction allowed $5 billion in cuts to take effect on November 1st.

Here is some of the impact to families across the country: Benefits to the supplemental nutrition assistance program (SNAP) will be lowered by $36 a month for a family of four, officials say. Some 47 million low income Americans will be affected by the cuts.
Food aid in the US has grown to $80bn a year due to higher unemployment and rising food costs. About one in seven Americans relies on Snap, also known as food stamps.
