Over 1 million face loss of food aid over work requirements

In Tennessee, Terry Work said her 27-year-old deaf son recently was denied disability payments, meaning he is considered able-bodied. And that means he stands to lose his food stamps, even though she said her son has trouble keeping a job because of his deafness.

North Carolina's Republican-led government enacted a law last fall accelerating implementation of the work requirements and barring the state from seeking waivers unless there is a natural disaster. State Sen. Ralph Hise said the state was doing a disservice to the unemployed by providing them long-term food aid.

A study of 4,145 food stamp recipients in Franklin County, Ohio, who became subject to work requirements between December 2013 and February 2015 found that more than 30 percent said they had physical or mental limitations that affected their ability to work. A similar percentage had no high school diploma or equivalency degree. And 61 percent lacked a driver's license.

Sick...Considering most of these people work and get next to shit of the productivity that they have worked for these past 30 years. Republicans are sick.

I have no problem with getting people off their ass into a job but this is just evil.

Hell, cut another 8.7 billion off of food stamps. It's high time those folks get some of those part-time jobs that are out there, that Nancy Pelosi is so damned fond of....

The fed gov should cut food stamps. There is no constitutional authorization for them.
Ah! If we could just use the constitution as a panacea! Let's harken back to the 18th century when there were no paved roads, rum was used as an anesthetic and only White property owning men could vote! The good old days for just White property owning men.

Not sure whether you're aware, but the constitution prohibits slavery.

It also prohibits food stamps.

Or subsidizing oil companies, yet, they get more than the food stamp budget..

The constition also prohibits subsidizing oil companies.

Not that I don't agree with the "idea" that you are putting forward, but please - where the hell in the Constitution does it state that? :)

Article I, section 8 lists the legislative powers that the states granted their agent, the federal government. Can you find any clause that grants congress the power to subsidize oil companies?

Apparently you can't comprehend simple english.

To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several states, and with the Indian Tribes;


Commerce with foreign nations. If you wish to include oil into that meaning, then so be it.

Did the states, when they established their compact, give their agent, the federal government, the legislative power to issue food stamps?

But to back up a step, you are aware that the federal government doesn't have plenary power but only has the specific, enumerated powers delegated to it by the sovereign states? If you don't understand this, then there's no point in continuing.

Then why were they not feeding the hungry after the Constitution was law of the land?
