Trump SNAP rule puts America back to work

Dec. 4, 2019, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement praising President Donald Trump’s reforms of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program:

“Today’s Trump administration announcement that the SNAP system will conform with statutory requirements that single, work capable people with no dependents between the ages of 18 and 49 are required to work in order to qualify for benefits. Our nation is fortunate to have an abundance of jobs and record employment, which virtually assures those who seek a job can find a job. The current economy has moved 6.3 million off of the food stamp rolls since Jan. 2017, which is great news. However, the food stamps program was never intended to be used for permanent dependency by able-bodied young people with no dependents, and the Trump administration actions will help launch those who have fallen into the trap of government dependency.”
