Having a boogey man to blame everything on doesnt even resemble critical thinking. It resembles a way of alleviating yourself of finding ways to better your own life.
The problem with cutting food stamps is they are not the welfare problem. Yes, the SNAP program should be a bit more restrictive in what foods they allow people to purchase, they do not give out cash benefits and are not even close to being abused like the TANF and SSD areas of public welfare. All you can buy with SNAP is food. You do not even get a lot to buy food with as 200 dollars a month is hugely restrictive for a person with no alternative. I also should note that SNAP is actually relatable to the farming industry of america as the benefits directly contribute to the demand for the products of the agricultural areas of our nation. When you cut food stamps you are cutting actual commerce for our farmers along with distribution and retail areas of our food industry. In this case it is relevant to the bill.
Welfare and food stamps were strongly implemented after the great depression since people would literally starve to death , before Regan .
