5. Republicans make the argument that

People use food stamps to buy junk food and that's why our poor people have such poor health and a high obesity/chronic illness rate.

If the food stamp program was truly about nutrition it wouldn't be cut, it would include nutrition education and not allow crap to be purchased through the program.

Unfortunately in Washington's eyes the program is mainly about funneling money to processed food manufacturers and corn producers these days.
