As Twitchy reported the other day, Rep. Adam Schiff told quite a whopper when he tweeted that President Trump was seeking to kick millions of families and children off of food assistance.
First off, it’s not millions, it’s an estimated 700,000, and they’re not being kicked off of food stamps; the work requirements to receive assistance are being tightened due to the improved economy and number of jobs available.
Second, the food stamp reform only applies to able-bodied people from 18 to 49 years old without dependent children. So, basically, it applies to able-bodied, childless adults between 18 and 49. And the work requirements are minimal. So much for kicking families and children off of food stamps.
