Farm Bill's Food Stamps Secures Votes for Dems

Ray Hartwell, American Spectator

The ongoing expansion of dependency on federal entitlements like SNAP (food stamps) not only makes its victims more likely to vote for politicians promising them more handouts, but also keeps them from looking for work and thereby counting as “unemployed” for purposes of the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ monthly employment reports. This shameful situation is a “win-win” for Dems and a “lose-lose” for taxpayers and for millions of currently dependent Americans who would be happier if they were employed and self-reliant.
