The SNAP program that is meant to help out veterans feed themselves and their families is in serious trouble.
SNAP stands for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program and a cut that is coming soon will hit about 900,000 of our veterans.
The Republicans are refusing to increase and allow for additional funding of this program amongst others which will cause these cuts to come.
Veterans face a lot of adversary when they return home and this will not make things any easier. nearly 10% of all veterans with a disability have been unemployed since 2010 and depend on SNAP for food.
This most likely will not be the last cut and Obama is fighting for additional funding for government assistance programs, but the Republicans don’t look like they will approve it.
