    New York’s ‘Squad Member’ Ocasio-Cortez Again Confuses Facts

    The liberal from the Big Apple somehow claimed that 'many people' will 'starve' due to the Trump administration's new rule on food stamps


    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), better known as AOC, claimed that a recent Trump administration action on food stamps would have meant starvation for her and her family when she was in college.

    Given that the former bartender, a member of Congress for about a year, has derided “facts” as a basis for reasoning, this is another example of those pesky facts getting in the way of her conclusions.

    But that didn’t stop her political allies from rushing to also call out the Trump administration.

    ——-

    The Trump administration fought back clearly and firmly.

    “We’re taking action to reform our SNAP [food stamp] program in order to restore the dignity of work to a sizable segment of our population and be respectful of the taxpayers who fund the program,” as Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue told reporters on Wednesday.

    “Americans are generous people who believe it is their responsibility to help their fellow citizens when they encounter a difficult stretch. That’s the commitment behind SNAP, but, like other welfare programs, it was never intended to be a way of life,” he also said.

    The program merely restores many of the welfare-to-work provisions of the Clinton administration’s 1996 welfare reform legislation.

    Many of those measures had been diminished or abolished altogether by the Obama administration.

    Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Act
    The Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996 is a United States federal law passed by the 104th United States Congress and signed into law by President Bill Clinton. The bill implemented major changes to U.S. social welfare policy, replacing the Aid to Families with Dependent Children program with the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program.Wikipedia

    And here is how WaPo framed it:
    Trump to poor Americans get to work or loose your benefits

    Hey WaPo this was originally enacted under Clinton.

    The Dems want generational poverty and welfare, with no work requirements, because that keeps those in desperation mode on the Democrat plantations and dependent on their crumbs.

    Kudos to the Trump Administration.
    This is being done out of respect for the American tax payers.

    "Americans are generous people who believe it is their responsibility to help their fellow citizens when they encounter a difficult stretch. That’s the commitment behind SNAP, but, like other welfare programs, it was never intended to be a way of life,” he also said.

    What rags like the WaPo fail to reveal is that this only applies to ABLE-BODIED AMERICANS.

    The legitimate recipients have nothing to fear.
