Food stamp recipients down 2M under Trump, USDA figures show
quote:

Since Donald Trump became president, the Dow Jones industrial average has climbed to 25,000 and fewer Americans are unemployed.

Another interesting fact: The number of people collecting food stamps has declined by more than two million.

Data released by the Department of Agriculture show that the number of participants in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), otherwise known as food stamps, dropped to 42,182,443 for fiscal 2017 – a decline of 2,036,920 from the fiscal 2016 total of 44,219,363.

USDA figures since show that the program has gone from costing taxpayers about $250 million for about 2.8 million recipients in 1969, under President Richard Nixon, to a peak of costing nearly $80 billion for nearly 48 million recipients in 2013, under President Barack Obama.

The numbers have declined since then, in part because of the booming economy and because some states have restored work requirements needed to qualify for SNAP, Fox News reported. In many cases the work requirements had been waived because of the recession of 2007-09.

That's what, 4%? In a year?

That's pretty substantial.

TRUMP is the Paycheck President, Obama was the Food Stamp President.

It still pisses me off standing behind a woman who was buying a prime roast at 100 bucks on her EBT card.

Costs decreased by about 4.2% year over year. They had been decreasing by about 3.9% annually since the peak in 2013. So this a small, but promising, improvement on an already promising recent trend.
