    Democratic lawmakers in Congress are racing against the clock to pass legislation in time to prevent America from flying off what they are calling the “food stamp cliff.”
    The “food stamp cliff” is the expiration of the temporary increase in funding to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) provided for by the 2009 stimulus bill that will expire at the end of October, according to The Hill’s Floor Action Blog.
    If the increase is not renewed, a single adult’s benefits will reportedly be cut by $11 a month to a total of $189.

The temporary increase in food stamps also know as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program expires Oct. 31, meaning for millions of Americans, the benefits that help them put food on the table every month won’t stretch as far as they have for the past four years.

    The “Extend Not Cut SNAP Benefits Act,” proposed by John Conyer’s (D-Mich.), would “amend the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 to extend the period during which supplemental nutrition assistance program benefits are temporarily increased.”

    The economy today, food-stamps for everyone. How long can we eat our own heart out?
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    SNAP and Section 8 should be reduced by 10% of 2013 levels for the next ten years. Section 8 should be completely done away with and SNAP should be only issued on a limited time emergency need basis. All public housing should be converted to senior housing.
