UPDATE: Tell your senator: Stop the backroom deal that cuts food stamps.
After months of backroom deals and negotiations, a “compromise” Farm Bill passed the House 251-166 on Wednesday, January 29th.
And this Farm Bill—which some Democrats helped negotiate—would cut food stamps another $8 billion.
This is unacceptable. Food stamp recipients are barely struggling to get by as it is, with soup kitchens already running out of food.
The bill now goes to the Democratic-controlled Senate, where we have a chance to help defeat it. While the Senate voted to cut food stamps last summer, this bill would more than double these cuts.
Sign and send our petition to your senator today, urging them to vote “no” on any Farm Bill that cuts food stamps.
