Tell your House member: Absolutely no cuts to food stamps. None.

food stamp graphHouse Republicans are hell-bent on gutting food stamps, regardless of the consequences. But now some Democrats believe they can reach a “compromise” with Republicans in the Farm Bill that would cut food stamps by $90/month for 850,000 poor families.

This is unacceptable. Food stamp recipients are barely struggling to get by as it is.

Instead of hurting poor Americans, members of Congress should focus on the Farm Bill's subsidies to Big Agriculture. These corporate handouts have a higher erroneous payment rate than food stamps and funnel billions into Wall Street coffers.

Sign and email a petition your House member now, and tell them in no uncertain terms: No Farm Bill that cuts food stamps. Absolutely no cuts to food stamps at all. None.
