It is so essential that the food stamp program doesn't receive any cuts as they just experienced. There are people who simply can no longer feed their family on the amount they receive and children are going hungry. If they have school age children, ok, they eat lunch and breakfast at school but on weekends, by the end of the month, there is no food. It is essential, with the way food prices have escalated, that they receive more, not less in food stamps. Hamburger is four dollars a pound, chicken is the only thing reasonable if you want to call two dollars a pound reasonable. Milk is three dollars a gallon on sale, what are the poor to do?
