Anxiety as stimulus hike in food stamps set to end

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - A temporary increase in food stamps expires Oct. 31, meaning for millions of Americans, the benefits that help put food on the table won’t stretch as far as they have for the past four years. Food stamps — actually the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program — go to 47 million Americans a month, almost half of them children and teenagers.

If it did put food on their table I would feel bad for them. But all it buys is better phones and tats so who cares if they lose the extra money

Did you know that despite this and despite the "shutdown", despite not having money to pay death benefits to the families of soldiers killed in Afghanistan; federal funding for PBS and NPR continues because it is deemed "essential" by the President?
