Response to turbinetree (Reply #14)

16. Definitely

Lyin' Ryan, who will thankfully be going away, was all over SS & Medicare elimination.

But there is ALSO a deadline that is going to hit this weekend that has fallen out of the news cycle (and it ain't the government appropriations and CR that was signed yesterday). It's the FARM Bill. That expires tomorrow night at midnight. That funded SNAP but also funded all those subsidies for the farmers (in addition to Drumpf's trade war bribe money).

The last time it lapsed (for a year), it still had enough funding to sortof continue the programs and there were a couple short-term extensions, but the battle was fierce and this time it will be worse.

So eliminating or severely slashing SNAP (food stamps)/WIC/ADC is the next knock-down drag out to come and probably sooner rather than later.
