    LMAO!!! Because he thinks mostly people of color are on stamps. Guess what? 😄

  3. Interesting enough many of his supporters are under this program….The Irony!!!

  4. “The new rule makes it more difficult for states to waive a requirement that able-bodied adults without children work at least 20 hours a week or else lose their benefits. The administration says the change is intended to encourage those receiving SNAP to get jobs, but anti-hunger advocates worry it will hurt low-income individuals who can’t find steady work.” -NPR News

  5. I thought Congress was in charge of allocating our tax dollars?

  6. America has spent $5.9 trillion on wars in the Middle East and Asia since 2001, a new study says

  7. When are republicans and democrats going to cut war stamps

  8. Corporate welfare, however, will be increased.

  9. Yeah sure lets cut food from the poor and keep the tax break for the wealthy.

    • dany manchster , yeah let’s keep giving free food to ilegal immigrants that have like 6 kids and the mom always claim to be a single mother and the dad works in construction driving a brand new truck.

  10. In breaking news happy meals take a quarter of a dollar volume to make and are still twice the gas and Restaurant dumpsters could feed an army.

  11. JOB TRAINING AND AVERAGE NUMBERS…. THESE ARE ALL TALKING POINT ANDREW YANG POINTS OUT!, Stop this

    Classy. Just in time for the holidays.

    • THAT RANDOM CHANNEL | December 5, 2019 at 8:36 PM | Reply

      If you are able bodied with no dependents and you are not smart enough to feed yourself then you should starve.

    • @robearl1983 Nonsense! Why not the bloated defense budget. They are going to hurt their own base. They think they are hurting minorities but it is poor whites who depend on SNAP most.

    • @Bantze HotepPeople understand psychology. They understand why abused women stay defending their abusers. This will have no effect on the Red electorate because no one wants to be a victim, so they will allow themselves to be victimized to prove that they are not.

    • It’s the holidays for dead beats all year long!

    • @Bantze Hotep Most people dont care what race just quit feeding the lazy on our tax dollars.

  13. Gotta pay for them tax cuts.

  14. That is a LOT of folks in Red States off Food Stamps.

    – Merry Christmas 🎁🎄 🎁

    • @Vera von Weltin Children and elderly are not expected to meet “Work Requirements” are they? The rule change affects people between the ages of 18 and 49 who are childless and not disabled.

      Correct or not?

      Actually read up on the changes, then feel free to comment again

    • @Vera von Weltin The 1% pays huge amounts in taxes while the lower 50% pay almost none, you are very greedy to feel you are entitled to the property of others, envy is poisoning you, you need to rethink your life, Socialism leads to mass poverty

    • ​@The Truth False. The largest proportion of food stamp recipients come from states like West Virginia, Mississippi and Louisiana – which overwhelmingly voted for Trump.
      Wonder how they’ll feel about the President, who was born with a silver spoon in his mouth, but pretended to care about the common person, when their kids start getting hungry?

    • @W C If they are working, they will not be disqualified from the program tho, the rule change affects people between the ages of 18 and 49 who are childless and not disabled, they must work 20 hours a week to receive the supplement. The issue was States were issuing wavers to the work requirement, when unemployment was high, the new rules prevent these wavers, since the national unemployment rate is less than 3.6% (considered full employment) and in some places, the jobs cannot be filled due to lack of people applying

      https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/politics-news/trump-administration-moves-impose-stricter-work-requirements-food-staps-n950271

      from linked:
      Under federal law, able-bodied adults without dependents are restricted to three months of benefits within a 36-month period unless they work at least 80 hours per month or participate in certain educational or job-training activities. But current USDA regulations allow for states to waive an existing work requirement if the area’s unemployment rate is 20 percent higher than the national rate. The new rule allows for states to only waive that requirement in areas where the unemployment rate is above 7 percent — nearly double the current national unemployment rate.

      About 755,000 recipients who qualified for the existing waiver now stand to lose assistance,

      Did you even bother to research before you commented? Is ok, I am here to educate

    • @milomilo55 Some jobs are not ment to be career jobs. It will help inspire them to do better and stop expecting handouts from the working man taxes. Maybe they will be working like me and not sitting on the front porch drinking beer as im going to work. A job will give them something to do besides that, roaming the streets and making more babies for us to support.

  15. How much has been spent on golfing weekends these last three years?

  16. Goes to show you where his priorities are. Spiteful little man.

  17. He doesn’t even realize 80% of his fans are in foodstamps

    • Well here in “blue” NJ, 700,000 people are here on food stamps, but that is nothing compared to the 4.5 million on food stamps in California. I got the data to back that all up………

    • Stupid Durr
      What’s wrong with you?

    • Vera von Weltin | December 5, 2019 at 10:21 PM | Reply

      @Northern Oh, btw, in the latest elections, the GOP lost in Virginia, Pennsylvania, Louisiana, and Kentucky!

      Trump at Kentucky rally: “If you lose, they are going to say Trump suffered the greatest loss in the history of the world….You can’t let that happen to me!” HE LOST! Watch this if you dare: https://www.yutube.com/watch?v=81kswqUpe5o

    • @Vera von Weltin ….and in the last election the Republicans gained seats in the Senate.

      Trump had an 8% approval rating in 2016 in the Black Community, he now has 34.5%, Democrats are losing the Black vote, that should be scaring the crap out of you, he is also at around 38% with Hispanics, and rising in both groups. Independents are turning against the impeachment (we warned you) and the Democrat party is going so far to the woke progressives that they are leaving their Moderate base behind.

      Read this if you dare 🙂

      The funniest part, you don’t see what is coming for you in 2020

    • Neither do they, the dumb f*cks… And still the simpletons vote for him…

    MERRY CHRISTMAS!
    The Democratic Party should be working overtime to get these people registered to vote.
    If victims of Republicans would vote, Republicans would do a lot less of this.

  19. When you cut food then you would have more people stealing. Now when you have more stealing then you would have more correctional facilities and prisons built. That means more jobs and more investors and more money for the rich.This is the plan, especially for minorities and the poor . You just can’t get a break for the poor, maybe when God comes back or when you die.. (CAUSE AND EFFECT) Prepare

  20. This is the Kremlin Don saying “Merry Christmas again”.
