I'm always surprised when single people can't live on $50 a week when my mom feeds a family of four on that much.
I don't agree with the cuts because I know how important they are but people do need to learn to budget.
The healthy food fills you up more than the cheap food, so you can buy less.
Foods high in protein are more filling than those that are not. You're left hungry so you buy more food. When, in reality, you don't need to do that.
People, in general, need to get better at budgeting & eating nutriously. That won't solve the problem but it'd help people be healthier & wealthier.
As far as taking from SNAP, there are probably dozens of programs that could be cut besides this one. I don't know much about politics & those programs but it seems to me that the ones that are cut are the ones we're willing to use our tax dollars for as opposed to those that we do not want our money to go to.
