President Trump’s new budget is going to crack down on something people don’t like: food stamp recipients buying steak, lobster, monster energy, beer, and cigarettes with the stamps.
Instead, the new bill will give in kind food to people.
“What we do is propose that, for folks who are on food stamps — part, not all — part of their benefits come in the actual sort of — and I don’t want to steal somebody’s copyright — but a Blue Apron-type program where you actually receive the food instead of receive the cash,” Mulvaney said.
Several states are working on plants to do it.
This comes from the budget director Mick Mulvaney.
