Food Stamp Usage Reaches Its Lowest Point For First Time In Eight Years

Liberals love welfare programs to control the voting populace. Free stuff gets the vote so that works for them. The problem is, nothing is for free and somebody else is paying for them. But, luckily the end is near!

Now, the number of Americans receiving benefits from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), commonly referred to as food stamps, continues to drop. According to the latest numbers on food stamp enrollment from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), food stamp participation dropped below 40 million for the first time in eight years.

Via Breitbart: “The most recent USDA data reveals that 39,604,428 people were enrolled in the Supplemental Nutrition: “Assistance Program (SNAP)—the program that administers food stamps—as of April 2018. The last time enrollment dipped below 40 million was in February 2010, when 39,588,993 people received SNAP benefits.

The latest data on enrollment shows that overall enrollment in the food stamp program has reached historic lows, reaching its lowest point in eight years.

But food stamp enrollment has been steadily declining over the past few months, keeping pace with the downward trend in SNAP participation since 2013.


Using the latest data from the USDA, here is the month-by-month breakdown of how many people discontinued their SNAP benefits in fiscal year (FY) 2018:

October to November- 4,015,110

November to December- 358,242

December to January- 734,178

January to February- 608,039

February to March- 32,294

March to April- 494,961

The Trump administration’s push to reform the country’s welfare system combined with favorable economic conditions in the U.S. might have contributed to the decline in people seeking assistance from the welfare program.

Under Trump, 2.5 million fewer people discontinued their participation in SNAP, mainly due to the Trump administration’s attempts to keep down program costs at the federal and state levels.”

Great job President Trump, keep the good work up.

It takes a while to get over a bad infection like Obama. But people are getting healthy again. The economy is healing and the drug of prosperity returning is kicking in. In a functioning economy, Americans don’t need food stamps! MAGA!!!
