Recreating the food (card) program so that it is for a limited time makes more sense and will bring down the cost to the Fed. We have to finance the tax cut to Corporations and the wealthiest Americans by taking from the poor. It is what we historically do. Everybody works and if you can not - long term food subsidies for parapalegics - provable disabilities. 80 billion annually in 2016, taken from the economy will make heads turn if cut by even 20 billions. Not partisan because parties change at all levels of government depending on the will of the citizens. We are not The Nazis, a one party country. Paying off the national deficit by removing programs for non-voters is a better theory. Otherwise, all the subsidy programs will be targeted and most Americans have no idea what is being subsidized with their tax dollars. It is time for a review and some transparency. If you receive subsidies for something needed fifty years ago, for example, please raise you hand if you no longer need the freebie. Leave Social Security alone. Even Republicans will vote against you if you touch their ability to stay off food stamps.
