Speaker Paul Ryan and House Republicans are planning a $23 billion food stamp cut that would take food assistance away from unemployed workers who are in school or job training programs.
Bernie Sanders called out Republicans for their outrageous policy of cutting food stamps for veterans in order to give massive tax cuts to the wealthy and corporations.
The Republican plan eliminates categorical eligibility which means that a family living at or below the poverty line that owns a dependable car will be cut off of food assistance.
