Here is apparently the official word on the subject:
[link to www.buckscountycouriertimes.com]
President Trump's direction, we have been working with the Administration on this solution. It works and is legally sound. And we want to assure states, and SNAP recipients, that the benefits for February will be provided," Purdue said.

To ensure funding, all states will need to issue next month's benefits — a national total estimated at $5.1 billion — by an early deadline of Jan. 20, the department said.

 Quoting: Pooka


Is that saying that each month we shell out 5.1 Billion just in food stamps?

But they can't give Trump 5.6 billion for the border?

WTF??

Loop hole - states should seek funds in January and federal will be able to fund.

However the state does not have to disburse early and I agree they should not.

 Quoting: CleverCreator


All states got a reserve. Memory flash under obamas shutdown, states had 3-6 month reserve to keep payn welfare.
 Quoting: Phennommennonn


I listened to a discussion about this on the radio yesterday. If I'm not mistaken, food stamps cost 480 billion per month and the reserve was around 420 billion. The numbers may be a bit off but I remember they had a bit less than a months worth in reserve and said payments would have to be cut.

If states had individual reserves, they didn't discuss it.
 Quoting: Rentaigen

They do. Pa is one state
 Quoting: Phennommennonn


That may stave off chaos. Just realize I put 480 and 420 instead of 4.8 and 4.2.

Re: February SNAP Benefits Will be Issued January 20
I faced the concept of hunger, bordering on starvation some months, when I was a child.

Most of the folks on snap (unless an illegal) have never known true hunger. Most kids that experience hunger are in families that don’t qualify for snap. However there are local outreach programs (in many communities not all, but a sense of community involvement helps build these programs).

I feel horrible for the kids that are going to go through this hardship, but I stand on my soap box and agree that border security is needed. My child won’t go hungry even with benefits gone for six months. They should have only purchased shelfstable staples.

Heaven forbid folks pay attention to the world around them.

End rant.
See the good. Prepare for the bad. And enjoy right now.

They should cut these benefits to 200 a month.Shouldn't matter how many kids you have if you need it.It would save money also.Stop rewarding people that have multiple kids and are irresponsible with 800 a month on food.

The two hundred should be the set rate for everyone that qualifies.

Stop making the fat cow entitlement fks more fat and brain dead.

There we go. You found the solution.

We don’t get benefits for two months. There is the wall money.

All ridistribution of wealth is unconstitutional, foolish, and wrong. However if my money is going to be stolen and given to others it should be in exchange for their permanent sterilization. That way, my money would be subsidizing a solution instead of an ever growing problem.
