Biden admin announces massive permanent boost to federal food stamp program

While Afghanistan falls to Taliban forces, President Joe Biden’s administration is preparing an attractive distraction for millions of Americans who are enrolled in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) program, known traditionally as food stamps.

According to Fox Business, Biden is set to authorize the largest permanent boost for SNAP recipients in the program’s entire history, meaning some 40 million Americans will receive roughly a 30% increase to their SNAP allowance each month. 

“To set SNAP families up for success, we need a Thrifty Food Plan that supports current dietary guidance on a budget,” deputy undersecretary for food, nutrition, and consumer services Stacy Dean said. “Too many of our fellow Americans struggle to afford healthy meals. The revised plan is one step toward getting them the support they need to feed their families.”

The increased benefits of the SNAP program, which is managed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), is reportedly an “effort to strengthen the country’s social safety net,” the Associated Press reported.

The bottom line numbers mean the average American on SNAP assistance will go from receiving $121 per person to roughly $157 per person, on a monthly basis.

Activists in favor of the SNAP program claim that the pre-pandemic totals per person were not enough to allow participants to make healthy food choices. The pandemic, they claim, simply made the situation even worse.

“This technical revision will mean a more adequate benefit level for SNAP [that] will help lots of families,” Dr. Diane Schanzenbach, director of the Institute for Policy Research at Northwestern University, said, according to Yahoo News. “This is a long overdue change that pushes SNAP to be more aligned with reality.”

Changes to the SNAP program do not require congressional approval.

While SNAP program recipients will now have a safety net to hedge against Biden’s out-of-control inflation, hard-working Americans who don’t depend on the government to feed their families will have to buckle down and work even harder as Biden’s economy continues to worsen. And that’s exactly what they’ll do.

My last pay check was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend Anna has been averaging $15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can’t believe how easy it was once I tried it out.

So SNAP recipients are getting a 30% increase and they did nothing to earn it. What about seniors on Social Security who contributed to FICA their entire working lives, what increase will we get? How much of the FICA reserve did Congress divert to other uses and never repay?

I guess the people who do not work or contribute to our country in any way are the only ones who get a raise. This is unacceptable. When will the republicans get of off their asses and do something. The democrats are killing our country and everybody is just sitting back watching.

Way to go Joe. Trying to turn people against your, divesting withdrawal, out of Afghanistan with out a plan because the Afghanistan forced were 700,00 strong against the Taliban with only 75,000 strong. Joe is a joke but if we impeach him that will put Harris in control as president and Pelosi as VP. Do we really want that? I feel we need to concentrate on beating them in 2022 by taking back the House and Senate then have Biden under control and wait for President Trump to run again or Ron DeSantis. It’s a hard plan but I feel we don’t need Harris as president. And especially Pelosi as VP. You think we have it bad now just wait if they come to the office. OMG!!!!!

I honestly believe that if a person needs assistance then they should get it. But they should be working a full time job with atleast a 40 hour work period and must turn in their recipes showing that in deed they bought food if they do not have a job then they must complete 40 hours a week community service for their state every week to stay on the food stamps
