SNAP Benefits Will Be Cut for All Participants in November 2013


SNAP Benefits Will Be Cut for All Participants in November 2013

excerpt: emphasis by jap69

n response to the economic downturn, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) increased Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits across the board as a way of delivering high “bang-for-the-buck” economic stimulus and easing hardship.

In August 2010, Congress passed and the President signed P.L. 111-226, which accelerated the sunset of the ARRA benefit increase to April 2014 and used the estimated savings for state fiscal relief through additional federal funding for school districts to maintain teachers’ jobs and maintaining a higher federal match for Medicaid costs.  Four months later, the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act (P.L. 111-296), which reauthorized Child Nutrition programs, further accelerated the sunset date of ARRA to October 31, 2013, to offset the cost of the legislation.  As a result, beginning on November 1, 2013, SNAP benefit levels will be based on the cost of the June 2013 TFP, which is lower than the ARRA levels.

Looks like stimulus money dried up and they used savings for other purposes.

With the increase in medicaid enrollment in states under the ACA will be receiving money from the feds for a few years. Guess what? What is going to happen to medicaid in those states when federal support fund dry up for the states in the program.
That is why a lot of states did not enter the medicaid expansion program. They would have been left hanging for the cost or cut participatation in the program.

The shifting of funds was passed by congress and signed by the president.
Democrat controled senate.
Democrat in the white house.
Somehow people think the repubs are taking away their free stuff, amazing.
Good find.
Last night was an EBT disaster, not only did they strip the candy and chip aisle clean, many are having giant parties tonight, the wings, ice, margarita mix, pop, bloody mary mix, when it was time to pay for the plates, cups, forks, foil pans, sterno, many of them were whipping out those new 100 dollar bills.
One woman and her 4 kids, all of them with cell phones, just texting away.
They bought pumpkins galore, cider, dough nuts, caramel apples.
We made a killing in sales, off the backs of tax payers who are taking it up the rear because of the ACA.
Not one single person asked about a job application, not one!
We closed at 8pm and didn't get out of there until 9:45, they left a giant mess, put fresh food in our freezers, we found a bag of oranges and a bunch of bananas in with the French fry section.
We found a 45 count box of peanut mm"s empty, just stole it.
We found several boxes of cookies opened, the empty wrappers just thrown on the floor.
W are short on our lobster tail counts, 9 packs are missing. They will review the tapes to see who snagged them, thieves are so stupid sometimes, our cameras are so good, we can see the hair on their chinny chin chins.
The bathrooms were disgusting, no excuse for humans to leave such a mess.
Our parking lot, had the usual piles of cigarette butts from people emptying their ashtrays, cans, bottles and dirty diapers, really you pigs, we have garbage cans.
and last but not least, to the azzhole who brought me a 10 pound ham, said he wanted it shaved, when I got the package opened, he says, " I really don't want it shaved I just want you to cut it in 4 equal pieces and wrap it up tight. that lazy oaf, disgusting pervert.
I almost forgot the best one, we have a coffee station, free hot coffee for our delightful customers.
2 little boys, took the liquid creamers and had a fun game of stomp the creamer and see how far they could make it splash, boys will be boys, I get it, I could see my kid turning that into a fun game when he was that age, What got us, was the mothers reaction, she called her children stupid m'er f'ers.
Then proceeded to tell our stocker that it was our fault for having them.
That's the mentality that really ticks me off, blame someone else.
All she had to do was have the kids wipe up the mess, no need for calling them names and blaming us.
The stocker said he could never imagine his mother calling him names, much less a stupid m'er f'er.

people are pigs!

Sounds like the Cheeto, potato chip and energy drink sales are going to drop around here...oh and lets not forget about the sugar water.
