Republicans Defund SNAP. Next Up: Work Houses
Wow, the Republicans really went there. In a 216-208 vote the House approved the Farm Bill. With no food stamps support. Yes, the Rethugs stripped out the funding for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).
The Dems didn’t make it easy for them - by all accounts it was an acrimonious fight. And there’s hope that the conference committee will restore the funding. But at the end of this day the Republicans had more votes. But there’s really no difference between the two parties, amirite?
