    I'm not sure of the exact wording of the bill, but the group of possible people effected by such a policy change would likely be much more broad than what you suggest, with some more than likely deserving the loss of assistance.

    But I'm not sure how that changes the fact that you just spent 6 pages ranting about things that have no relation to the proposed legislation.


    Does that include federal funds for health care?
    I am always amazed at seemingly how proud you are of your ignorance: raising some red herring based on what you assume my position is doesn't address the fact that you had absolutely no idea what you were ranting about. Secondly, my views on healthcare reform likely don't reflect from the mentally-stunted caricature that you were able to work up in your head

    1)no, but it does serve the purpose of keeping people engaged with the economy.

    2)which isn't exactly a bad thing. twenty hours out of a week is hardly a demanding schedule, even for someone with a kid

    And it's not that I even agree with any policy outlined in the OP< it's just your objections up to this point seem based on nothing more than ignorance and hysterics

    The bill has a requirement that if not employed, AB SNAP recipients must take 20hr/wk of training. The bill is not providing the monies for training to the states. Therefore, if you are unemployed and the state is not providing training on their dime, you lose benefits.....ergo, those unemployed ARE being targeted.

    Well, the op isn't exactly big on details, but I feel in general efforts to tie assistance into work requirements is a good thing. Though I imagine the GOP is approaching it from a punitive angle and over playing their hand

    rereading the article, it deals with those able-bodied individuals, who are under 50, and lack dependents.

    I'm not the biggest fan of food stamps but I think i'm opposing this cut just because Eric Cantor is pioneering it. Can't stand that guy.

    from the article:

    Currently Washington provides a 50 percent match for states that spend their own funds for employment and training programs for food stamp recipients. As proposed now, the bill would only provide this aid if the state is willing to operate welfare reform-like work activities for mothers with children over 1- years-old.
    the article cited in the OP isn't exactly clear on details, but the above seems to suggest supplementation for already existing training programs would be cut, if single mothers were not required to engage in such to receive assistance.

    From what's in the OP, I really find it hard to take real issue with either policy, but certainly leave open the possibility that the actual language of the legislation is more problematic
