Congress wants to take food from the mouths of hungry children and families. Literally. They're proposing cuts of about $40 BILLION from food stamps--now called the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or "SNAP"--kicking somewhere between 4 and 6 million people off the program.
After children, women are the biggest SNAP recipients, relying on it to provide food for themselves and their families--including millions of kids who would otherwise go hungry.
Congress could vote on the bill this week. Before they do we have to show them that attacks on programs like SNAP will create intense public backlash. Journalists are just starting to write about the immoral cuts in this bill. If tens of thousands of us speak out now, we can expose what Congress is up to and make sure it's defeated.
