"People so creative man so apparently there is such a thing as free lunch this last week. The biden administration announced that he free summer lunch program would reach more than thirty four million kids. Yeah they extended at right. Yeah so During summer months is common that low income children suffer the most because they are so dependent on getting the food nutrition from you know already underserved public schools so this program would give a like roughly three hundred seventy five dollars each child which would be the equivalent of about seven dollars a day for lunch monday through friday and that's nothing is nothing for a huge difference that you're making in this child's development mentally emotionally at just their wellbeing in general. That's not we. Yes so stacy. Dean who a deputy under the secretary of agriculture says quote. We know this summer hunger is a problem in normal use but obviously this year It's heightened food hardship as a result of the pandemic. So like this is. This is a great program who the fuck would be against. Yes and on top of that children who are under six years old who qualify for snap or just automatically enrolled are found. Yeah so how it works is the parents are going to get a An e bt card. What they're calling it. The he which is a pandemic electronic benefit transfer card had pep pep. Did congress call us about your brand new. yes so congress passed. This is part of the american rescue act and the program like you said is extended from the existing program goes into the summer and not just this summer but into some twenty twenty awesome so i just want to somebody who does not have children myself like this is fucking rat. Yeah this is great like i. I really would love to see the fucking conservative argument against. It's like thirty. Four million children seven dollars a day monday through friday just so that they eat. You can't guarantee the eating three meals a day but you can guarantee that eating at least one. Yeah and you know the investing in kids like this. I mean these kids are going to be an adult in the blink of an eye. And we want like a neurologically developed people to be our contemporaries and when you're malnourished as a child it just puts you so far back in all kinds of development like metrics and everything else. It's like no. We need to give these kids every single chance that they have food and water and healthcare. That's not again. It is like a weird argument to be on the other side of like providing right. Well hungry kids. I like my kids. Skinny yeah well. Yeah i think like. I don't know like the debate Sort of like kid in me like i did to beaten school so you always have to like the side that you would never take to try and work on your skills and like. I think that the other side of this would be like well. How are we going to fund this. But it's like okay but like how fucked we fund the pentagon the pentagon budget the largest have been. This is like a blink of money in terms of the benefits so outweigh the minor costs. Like you get so much for your dollars here. So this is great. I'm so glad that this happened. Like look biden was not my first choice but like this dude is undeniably doing good again like all. The cases against him are fucking..

"In. What to do about those six hundred dollars. From marketplace I'm sure in for David Brancaccio. WHO's on assignment? Republicans are expected to roll out there. TRILLION DOLLAR CORONA virus relief package today I know we've heard this one before, but it might actually happen this time. The bill would address the expiring six hundred dollars a week. Supplemental unemployment benefit among other things. Marketplace's Nancy Marshall Genzer joins me now live to talk about it. A High Nancy Hey Siri. So are Republicans going extend that six hundred dollars a week. It doesn't look like it instead. They're expected to propose replacing it with a scaled-back supplemental unemployment benefit that would amount to around seventy percent of the last salary of unemployed worker, and they don't have a lot of time Sabrina. The six hundred dollar benefit officially expires this Friday. Weren't the Republicans by the way supposed unveil this last week. They were, but there have been disagreements over what to include in the bill over the weekend White House officials said they've decided on sort of scaled down package It's focused on the extra unemployment payment. Also, it's expected to include liability protections for businesses and schools, making it difficult for them to be sued. If a worker or student got covid nineteen, the Republicans are also expected to include another twelve hundred dollar relief payment in their legislation, and they could push for an extension of eviction moratorium. That's expiring. What do Democrats have to say? Well, they passed him more than three trillion dollar bill a few months ago and that legislation extends the six hundred dollar weekly payments through January. Democrats don't like liability protections either. Employers and schools would have no responsibility to keep workplaces in school safe. Marketplace's Marshall Genzer, thank you so much. You're welcome. The number of people in the US relying on snap benefits for food assistance food stamps, people know it grew by seventeen percent in just the first three months of the pandemic, and as marketplace's Samantha fields reports that number is likely to grow even more if those expanded federal unemployment benefits expire as planned at the end of the month. One of the first things Kevin. Ask You did after he lost his job back in March with sign up for food stamps. Choice Hud. They have something to eat. You know what I mean. He's fifty seven and before the pandemic, he was working as a chef at Carnegie Mellon University Pittsburgh, but he didn't have much savings and ever since the campus closed down. Bar, you know, argue goodbye. No one wants to hire you anything you know right now. Ask You is one of more than six million people who signed up for snap benefits between February, and may we've never seen participation snapper demand for help with food assistance spike like this before Stacy Dean focuses on food assistance policy at the Center on Budget and policy priorities..

People want to hear it and often when I showed people people got to this story on the about page the about page buried on the website when I show them the dollar about how many people look at how awful that was buried telling people put you story put on by. Doug put a big block of takes Sprinkling you'll passionate about whatever topic you do. And the reason passionate about it. Tell people that real story mob personal story is as you mentioned the side of the showers. Same I've brands like folded.

I'm thinking about do you think So if someone had just like a short video of just themselves talking on their homepage or somewhere on their website that the did just that so it wasn't just taxed would that be valuable. I think that's a wider to always say That's definitely by but also if you can integrated into a message about what you do so again just simple examples to show the point if you had a message that six say you're saying you had a business Clients Problem Right If you waive in video that said hi we solve. This problem aches and the reason we did that is because we've been doing this for thirty years and they're really passionate because one day we found this problem with With that why sold that saving better. That's an example of how you've wave You've got the customer to watch the video because the is that how you solve a problem that in video you talked about why do two gotta keeps. Its you've waived into the narrative of you of your website. You'll passion feel your product which story and that works and absolute trait clearly having a video that Says why do really good and paypal definitely will that on definitely saying that but also think about Hack Ma. Wave is in two to problem solving for the client. Okay that makes sense. Thanks for that. Okay what are we on a number number is process again cited. This is another really each talk about us. Humans when we have a problem we might be in this state of confusion with copies Hate how solve that problem. So when they when they land on a website they want to understand how you can you solve that problem but also how do you solve that problem so having something that explains had you solve that problem is really really important? A really good example of that is dollar Shave Club. They've got.

"On our podcast as well so thanks for subscribing to all of you who are dedicated and listening every week I'm sure Anna if not your binging a little bit with our podcast so thanks for a thanks for all your support appreciate your notes that are coming through social media about the show and and special thanks to all of our team that are promoting this at the food bank council and all all across our entire food bank network as well and Michigan farm bureau I mean they they are what they have walked alongside us every step of the way really grateful for their on going support yep coral nor ski the president there and all the whole team the insurance side the Michigan farm bureau side Scott good and all the all the guys there and all the women there are just so they're really like you said they've been with us since the first step they believed in us and they continue to do so so Jerry there's a couple things here I want to cover for twenty twenty that are really exciting and the first thing I want to talk about we we did talk a little bit about childhood hunger but in in regard to schools but I wanted to circle back to that just a little bit because that's not something that is just local or just one food bank so I mean it's almost like our whole network is taking it on well I think we're realizing that the first step to a hunger free community has got to be ending childhood hunger one of our one of our donors put it this way two words that should never go together child and hunger and there's no question that is a fundamental belief we are one of the most wealthy countries in the world there is no reason for our country to say that childhood hunger is acceptable and and it's just it's well understood it's well believed and and we're starting to see that slogan cropping up all over the state in in food banks and I think we are we are all on board with the idea that the first step to a food secure Michigan is a state that that is hunger free for children yep you know I'm I'm thinking back about a show that we did that had Stacy dean from the center for budget priorities and policy and not Stacey made a comment on the show that I think it's very pertinent to what you just said we are a wealthy country we are an incredible country it measures far beyond our income and wealth in we have the ability to tackle big problems like food and security without making hunger and hardship worse in this country and I think that's absolutely true some of the policy changes some of the administrative changes that are being proposed an active male or making it harder not easier and I think Stacy makes a great point here we can solve this problem without making it harder on people so I think as we as again we're looking ahead to twenty twenty I think we're gonna see a lot more being said and done on this issue of ending childhood hunger in all of our communities now we've it it's going to piggy back on some of the other predictions right so I don't want to I don't want to double and double again but I will say liable in down here is that what's going on right but I do want to say that a lot of the things we've talked about in terms of produce distribution and and access and and and health care all those things you know are gonna be somewhat focused on making sure that households with school age children are well cared for so that we can really see progress in ending childhood hunger in Michigan Jerry one of the topics someone's to touch on really briefly here is is nutritional standards because forty years ago when food banking started basically the philosophy was a calorie is a calorie and any food will solve hunger whether that be an apple or a potato chip now there's proprioception for apple and there's appropriate time for potato chips in my life at least but I I want you to talk a little bit about because you're doing some work nationally on this committee how has food banking evolved and particularly opens the door for us to work with healthcare yeah I think the best way to frame that issue is when food thinking got started nobody had any clue how big it would be and how important it would be come to the lives of the residents in our community so the idea at the time was just keep food from going to waste it get it out to those organizations like the captions and salvation army and the other churches and community centers that are distributing food so now that we've been here for over forty years and we realize that people do depends on our work we have to be mindful of the impact our food has on their life we can't just say get anything out there we also have to be mindful of if we're distributing food that people are consuming it's not providing any value the right way strike so so the nutrition standards conversation really encompasses this broader idea of taking responsibility for the food we're distributing and making sure that it's actually useful and helpful to the people were serving in the most constructive ways so so as you said there's a time for a birthday cake I mean you know there's a time to celebrate life we don't just distribute food we distribute relief we distribute hope we distribute joy and all those things are still important to our work yet we have to have a nutrition framework that helps us understand all of the impact that we have in people's lives and especially how it impacts their health very quickly you're talking about the impact in people's lives what's the what's the net affect what's the impact of the food that we give to people you know we talk about in four ways we talk about the economic impact that we have if they don't have to purchase the food and they have our food is obviously an economic impact of between two and five dollars a meal then we also talk about this the way it stabilizes households you know how they have to make fewer trade off every month how solving this problem makes the rest of their life easier we talk about the impact on health which we've already said some things about and then also the empowering impact if you don't have to worry about this issue you can spend time on other things in your life that help you move forward those are the four primary areas that we talk about our work impacting people I like that and then of course we do we don't have time to talk about it but the use of data in our work and how were gathering up all the way from our clients and using it all the way up through our work to really inform some a lot of the decisions it's time for a little food for thought any worthwhile undertaking starts with Y. the purpose or belief that inspires us to do what we do and inspires others to join us collectively the CEOs of the seven feeding America food banks have approximately ninety nine years of experience knowledge and wisdom in this great work of creating a food secure state that's a lot of insight into how we can best get more food more often two more people is both humbling and inspiring for all of us to be leading planning and creating the plan to make food security a reality for our hungry neighbors a.
"stacy dean" Discussed on The Daily Beans
"Welcome back We have a Story now that makes me Really Mad Jordan yes to trump's planning instituted pretty drastic change to the snap program Snap stands for supplemental supplmental Nutrition Assistance Program so food stamps basically Essentially they're instituting a work requirement. That will cause what's currently being estimated. Seven hundred thousand when Americans losing snap coverage which is awful and huge assault on the working class on under served communities on anybody. That's trying to get on their feet again. Basically IT'S A. USDA rule change. It's going into effect April first and it specifically relates to the demographic graphic of people between the ages of eighteen and forty nine who don't have children and are not disabled so that's this specific demographic currently that it demographic is required to work at least twenty hours a week for more than three months over a three year period to qualify for snap. But a lot of states have I've been able to issue waivers for areas that have super high unemployment numbers but this change is basically going to limit states ability to do that In the only states that are gonNA areas. That are going to be allowed to do that. Are Ones that have an unemployment rate of six percent or higher. Everybody else is going to have to just get get off food stamps. Oh my God yeah. It's really the national unemployment rate in October was three point six percent so they're setting six percent is the threshold for saying that. That's just just too much of a difference. Apparently and that everyone in that city apparently must be doing well if their unemployment rate is low. Right right basically. Yeah just punishing punishing people living in a certain reality in a state that doesn't have as pat of an unemployment rate But mostly punishing and like seven hundred thousand. I've heard is a conservative estimate there's estimate sutter in upwards of millions of people that are going to lose that and so they decide by the state unemployment rate I it said areas so area whatever. Yeah let me see Eh. The new rule would limit states from waving standards instead restricting their use to those areas that have a six percent unemployment rate or higher. So that makes me feel like it's like a district sort of thing okay. Because I was GONNA say California's I think like a four percent. Four percent unemployment unemployment rates. Yeah I've been doing it by state you know. We were just disqualified the entire state but it sounds like the state gets to determine the optimal. Yeah thing I I. Maybe it's just by city or county or something or district I mean there's a million ways split it up. Also these economists calculations of what the unemployment rate is or what the economy looks like. It's frustrating considering. We live in a time of GIG economy and no job security people working multiple jobs even if there are jobs available. They're not secure sure and Yeah that's what purdue has been saying you know. The economy is booming. And so this is this is going to save us a lot of money in you know. This is designed for people to be more self sufficient but the way that the way that these conservative economists calculate this stuff is not based on human rights are living standards or like what people people actually deserve. Bullshit yeah now you know it just occurred to me. This could actually be punishment for fair. District maps yeah Because if you think about like when Democrats win gerrymandering cases and they get nonpartisan district's drawn up which a good even amount of all sorts of different demographics and class radiations et CETERA. If because you used to be like if the Republicans draw lines it's all super rich white people and then if you make it more diverse and you bring in more disenfranchised franchised people you lower your unemployment rate. You could lose your food stamps for that. Area might be an incentive against fair. Districting God yeah. That's Shitty to think about. Yeah Yeah there's a lot of facets of this at our poor people tend to vote Democrat. Yeah of course yeah I know to. They are using language saying that. This is also to be fair to the American taxpayer. So they don't feel like their money is. You're going to people that aren't trying to get work in this so like all the money that we paid. That went to rich. The people this time around. Brady's it it's like yes because humans love living in squalor that's something they strive for. They strive to not provide the childhood. They wish they okay could provide to their kids when they're hungry challenged or right. Yeah it's not to mention the fact that twenty hours. Correct me if I'm wrong police because I totally could be. But aren't there certain certain like labor laws that make it so you have to start. Providing certain benefits went to Putin. Were person works a certain amount of hours. Yeah usually so like a lot of jobs are incentivized for even allowing someone to work a certain amount of hours when it's like a part time job situation. Yeah yeah they already do that. Based on that. Yeah right right. And so now you have an additional incentive desensitization incentive his own use decentralized. Yeah Yeah Yeah this is going to. It's going to hurt a lot the people and there's a quote here from Stacy Dean. Who is the vice president of Food Assistance Policy for the Center on Budget and policy priorities? That's a mouthful She's this change. Really weakens really weaken stops ability to assist the unemployed during economic downturn. So it's GonNa make it harder and future for states to get those waivers if things are you know if there's an economic downturn in their state and they're having a lot of indicators that we could be headed for an economic downturn so yeah it's really sad. I know that there's a lot of local food pantries entries to and stuff that I'm sure will continue to thrive and hopefully we'll get even more support as this gets instituted but it's just gonNA put such a huge burden on not only the individual will but also the communities around them that might be. You know I mean every single facet of their community. Everyone struggling everyone. That's maybe not startling themselves but devotes resources and their life to helping their community. It's just and trump fuck charities to by making it making the donation nation tax. Write off Less so by by stifling that so 'cause charities have been in trouble since that tax bill passed already and so just Give a little extra especially this holiday. Season I know we do a neighborhood. BLANKIE drive disco round pick people's blankets. And then we just go down to the village village and hand them out Keep some extra blankets and jackets in your car and food and and There's a lot of banks around. You can get into your also quick tiny a little tangent here. Speaking of Food Stamps I. I've been learning a lot about food deserts recently and like what a lot of Low Income People Face who use food stamps. There's in their neighborhoods in their areas and a lot of cities across the country. They don't have access to grocery stores that accept food stamps. Or they're like ninety minute bus. Ride away or something. And so that's that's like a really huge challenge and so I've been learning a lot about the importance of supporting farmers. Markets and food growing or urban food initiatives in yeah in low income areas areas of snap. Yeah Yeah and donating some money or at least supporting them in some way because That's going to be really crucial for a lot of people who are unhealthy now. What area am I N is under a six percent unemployment rate or above a six percent? Unemployment right yeah and then then it's like if people people can't even depend on getting the sustenance that they need nutritionally to continue on honestly because it says cut and dry as that is you fuck a need food. Are they going to have to now. Put money on credit or something to like. Go and move to an area that has an unemployment rate that can accommodate there needs. It's like the whole thing does create so many so many problems could actually a food refugees. Yeah right that's fucking terrifying food refugees because because they're in an area that is supposedly doing better or arbitrary number is just is chosen. Yeah well it's really really really shitty sufficiently pissed me off so to counteract that it's time for some Schadenfreude saw all right. Nancy Pelosi clapped back after her announcement bouncing that the house will start drafting impeachment articles when a reporter asked her if she hated trump Before we get to the clip do you guys see this today. I want you to know who the reporter was that she was yelling at Yelling as strong term that she was clapping back at Put in his place. His name is James Rosen and in January two thousand eighteen. He was ousted from his job at the Fox News as chief Washington correspondent position after eighteen years for an established pattern of flirting aggressively with peers and making unwanted sexual advances toward three female Fox News journalists for Ales sales and Murdoch to fire you for sexual stuff. That's not good He was also investigated by the Justice Department. As a co-conspirator to espionage you can find that in the Washington in a post. He now works for Sinclair.

"So we're back that was quite the conversation with Stacy dean an important conversation I mean we want to get to this stuff as it's happening obviously it's really important for you listening to know that you know every day every week every month there's something going on that's affecting policies that affect you and when we talk about having a food secure Michigan if we pretend like we have fewer people in poverty than we actually have we're not gonna solve this problem so again I understand these are complex issues there's a lot of math involved there's some things that are very good about the chain the index verses the one we're using now we've got a look at all of that and how it comes together but as it's happening now I think we can say it's it's gonna make the problem worse not better just to pretend that there is less people in poverty than there actually are you know I can't imagine any leadership scenario where ignoring a problem are defining the problem in accurately leads to a great solution right and we've I mean again many times address this issue of how the poverty measure is already flawed and it's challenging to change it because so many things are hooked to it well by the same token by changing the index which the same many things are hooked to and not really thoroughly looking at what is this going to do for the people that are really going to be impacted by it I think that's a mistake so we want people to let their legislators now that this isn't a good idea just to take this one piece of it and try to push it through so if you want to know who to contact hosts dot gov and Senate dot gov we'll give you a way to find out who to contact to say this isn't a good idea because if we want people to work instead of getting assistance we have to have policies that are going to help keep them at work this isn't going to be one of them at least the way it looks now no it's not in its is is again I think going back to what Stacey said if it's a if it's a policy that. UPS lift people out and become self sufficient it's a good policy if it's holding them back or trapping them in poverty is a bad policy and it shouldn't be an option I guess it's time for a little food for thought. the United States women's soccer team recently won the World Cup an amazing accomplishment by any standard at halftime of the match between the US and the Netherlands it was zero two zero our Neil to kneel the US one two two zero but what if late in the game the leaders of the world caught decided that the Netherlands could use their hands but the US team couldn't. and the result was the Netherlands one five two zero we Americans would be enraged that would violate so many of our core values that we would probably invade and conquer the Netherlands if someone could show us where they are on a map. I doubt most of us could find it to me that is exactly what is happening to the working poor families in America the administrative change proposed by the current administration is not right it's not good policy it isn't just it is it best and it is an American we give one another a hand up an occasion if need be we will even give each other a hand out it is who we are we come alongside one another we help one another we stand by and stick together with one another we don't ignore redefine and act as though someone doesn't exist the facts of the matter do not support this re classification.

"Argument. So this right now, just to be clear on the timing of this, this is what they call in committee. So it has passed out of the cultural committee. Okay. So it's passed out. It's on the floor somewhere they are thinking of bringing it up in the floor in early myth which is like next week because Republicans have a big enough margin in the house. They can pass this without any democratic votes. Democrats like left conversations about writing this Bill earlier in the process. I didn't walk away. We didn't walk away. It was largely written behind closed doors. It passed committee with only Republican votes. No Democrats voted for Democrats Gaby's very big speeches about how this was a horrible partisan policy push. We were pushed away by an ideological fight. I repeatedly warned the chairman not to start if it makes it onto the floor for a vote, you expect that it would probably only get Republican support. Do you think it'll get unanimous Republican support the way it did in the committee? Probably not. I mean, I've talked to a lot of Republicans who have said, taking up entitlement reform welfare reform. After passing a massive tax cut is maybe not the best optics like they're aware of what this looks like. You wouldn't think it in two thousand eighteen, but snap food stamps.

Make it month to month. Don't judge me until you walk a mile in my shoes. This is today explained. I'm Sean Rama's firm right now. There's a partisan fight going down in congress over snap, but food assistance used to be the kind of thing. Everyone could just agree on Stacy. Dean has been working on food assistance policy here in DC for a quarter century. The original program began a during the great depression, and that's where we got the name stamps, blue stamps, and orange stamps were issued to low income households so that they could go use them in their local grocery store to buy food with that. The modern version of the program is a creature of the late sixties and early seventies part of the great society. There was a growing recognition in the mid sixties by policymakers and the public of the extraordinary levels of poverty and hunger that we had in this country what was going on in the sixties that led to sort of a heightened awareness of poverty and hunger? Well, you had a pretty amazing CBS documentary called hunger in America. That's looked at a pockets of hunger in different parts of the country. What do you tell your children when they come home and there is no food. We haven't got anything to and wait. Have Palade down like then to the next day, he can find something to just come and drink some water and go to bed. I think that really shocked the country to see that we had levels of malnutrition akin to developing countries. We also had Bobby Kennedy, did the hunger tours what we have here causes. Considerable amount of hunger and we have the children with distended stomachs children as well as grownups suffering. And in response to that Senator Dole Republican from Kansas Bob Dole. Bob Dole and senator McGovern democrat from South Dakota came together and helped to create snap as we know it today as a strong federal response to say that whether your child is born in Mississippi here in DC or northern Minnesota, you should not go hungry at your belly needs to be filled so that you have the same opportunity that kids in other communities do how is the bipartisanship around snap and food stamps changed throughout the decades. There have been detours in the past President. Reagan proposed pretty deep cuts to food stamps and and other programs in the safety net in the early eighties that he get him, he got some and then many of them were rolled back and then the nineteen Ninety-six welfare reform law included very deep cuts to snap and some other changes, many of which were reversed afterwards. Skipping ahead to twenty eighteen how many people are on this program. Now, how big is it. Now, one in eight Americans, one in four children about two-thirds of recipients or children, elderly or disabled, and a little bit more than three quarters of benefits go to households that include children. And is it urban rural everything? Or is it more one of the other poverty and hunger is in every community? So it is rural, urban, suburban people that you meet and work with encounter every day are probably snap participants. And how long is someone typically on the program? It's about ten months for many people. It's transitional. They use the program once and they're and for others throughout their lives when they're in and out of work when they experienced, let's say, again, a sick kid to something happens where they need a little bit of help they may cycle on and off the program a few times over the course of their life. I'm curious what like the step by step process to sign up for snap is, let's say like some fictional guy, Bob snap monster, the sign up, how, how does he do it?

I'm Stacy dean and I'm the vice president for food assistance policy at the center on budget and policy priorities. She is a better name for that. The anti hunger community, the anti hunger community with that. That is a group of thousands of people around the country who worked to make sure we don't have hunger meals on wheels. Food banks sounds like a good community. We are a great community. I didn't know that community today, but we throw a great parties, but. Well catered, I bet you get so mad. We really dance it out as they say, why is the anti hunger community? So mad? This language is so unworkable. So oughta touch and quite frankly, so insulting to the most vulnerable in our country Republicans on the house committee on agriculture. Wanna make big, huge cuts to snap aka food stamps. This Bill cut snap benefits by over twenty billion dollars, and it reduces or eliminates benefits for nearly two million kids veterans working families and other ball Rable adults. It is shameful. This shortstop now, but will it. This story starts with a farm Bill. There's a farm Bill, his a farm Bill. What is the farm Bill? The farm Bill is one hundred billion dollar program. It usually comes up every five years that give subsidies to farmers in that community. It kind of dictates what kind of nutrition programs get funding this farm bills getting more attention than they usually do. Eighty percent of the farm Bill is funding nutrition programs, and the biggest one is food stamps or the supplemental nutrition assistance program. It's also called snap. Tara Gulshan is a congressional reporter vox. Usually this is a bipartisan piece of legislation, but because Republicans kind of want to push this entitlement reform mission through House, Republicans really want to impose harsher work requirements on those programs. The problem with this Bill is the work piece. Unfortunately, the chairman told me that was the one. Non-negotiable provision in the Bill. What are the work requirements? Could you tell me in greater detail with those are about? So currently snap or food stamps does how work requirements. And it requires able bodied adults without dependence between the ages of eighteen and forty nine to work twenty hours per week to receive aid. This proposal would like to harsh this requirement, so it would increase the age to fifty nine. Okay. And if they don't meet those requirements than it would kick them off the program for a year, if they don't meet again, they keep violating these requirements could kick them off for up to three years while he's a really harsh penalties, how many people would this affect how big a cut might be? They expected it would cut twenty billion dollars from the program of the next ten years, and they think that it will ultimately kick off two million people from the program. And just to be clear, how big is this program who who's on it about forty, two million people United States rely on these. Grams. It's huge. Demographically snap is majority white. So it's forty percent, white, twenty six percent black. It's ten percent Hispanic, two percent, Asian, Ron. One percent native American and the rest O report how radical a move is this from the Republicans on the cultural committee to propose these sort of harsher work requirements on on snap. So this issue came up in twenty twelve and it delayed the entire farm Bill process for two years in two thousand fourteen when they passed the farm Bill and it was this bipartisan effort. It was kind of this idea that they'd moved on from these partisan policy tricks. But in the past year, we've seen Republicans trying to get their conservative policies through and in the past month, the White House has also put out a directive to the administration and different agencies to kind of find every place. It can put work requirements possible in terms of the scheme of of Republican ideology and how they see these wealth. For programs. It's not completely out of the blue. But in this farm Bill in kinda this like bipartisan area of legislative debate, it is more surprising. Do Republicans know that two million of some forty, something million people will lose this program. Is that why they're proposing these work requirements or do they have some other motivation? I've talked to a lot of Republicans that say that it's a bloated program in the past decade. The program has become more efficient at reaching out to people and making sure the people who need to be on the program or on the program. So it's working well, it's working well, and it's grown in size, but that means that it's doing better and it's more efficient. Not that it is bloated and reaching people that don't need it too. So I think there's this interpretation that there are people on it that are abusing it and that there are too many. But when you actually look at the numbers, that's not the case. I feel like doing this just to cut two million people from getting food stamps doesn't sound like a popular policy. The proposal or something that would be popular so there there must be some other defensive. So the kind of golden examples for Republicans are in Maine and Kansas, which reinstituted these work requirements and Republicans will say that it drastically reduced the number of people on the federal roles. Okay. That statement does not say anything about the well being of these people. It just means that the federal government is paying less money. So you can see kind of the hole in that argument.
