That Seal Was Real

Rand Paul learns about one lotto winner collecting food stamps, claims "We're giving food stamps to millionaires!" and proposes $280 billion dollar cut to SNAP program


Spoiler alert: his proposal also includes moving the food stamp program from a federal program to a state-by-state one.

“The cuts would result in an average benefit cut of $90 per month for nearly a half a million households, according to Congressional Budget Office.”

I am eagerly awaiting his proposal to cut hundreds of billions of dollars in corporate subsidies, since at least one company out there has abused them. Because if we find one exception, it means we need to overhaul the entire program, right?
