The Obama administration said it “strongly supports” the federal food stamp program in a Wednesday press release supporting a Democratic-sponsored farm bill that would extend funding for the program until 2017.
“The administration also strongly supports the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), a cornerstone of our nation’s food assistance safety net, which is why it was not subject to cuts in the president’s budget,” the press release read.I would be happier if they "strongly supported" a robust private sector. But that's just me.
Under our great and glorious Leader, The One, He Who Would Heal Our Souls and Cause the Oceans to Recede, spending on food stamps has gone up over 100%.
But heh! "The private sector is doing fine."
