GA-Sen A: Sarah Riggs Amico (D) Rips Trump For Kicking People Off Food Stamps Before The Holidays
Playing catch up here. Received this e-mail from Sarah Riggs Amico’s (D. GA) U.S. Senate campaign:
In a targeted attack on low-income families, ahead of the holiday season, the Trump administration issued a new rule that will cut nearly 700,000 people off of food stamps.
By enforcing work requirements on Americans already struggling to make ends meet, this administration has made clear their complete disregard for the American people.
The Trump administration is prioritizing a balanced budget at the expense of the American people. It’s downright cruel.
This new rule could affect 54,000 Georgians alone — in a state where 1.5 million people struggle with hunger, including over 500,000 children.
Taking away basic access to food will not encourage people to find work — it will only worsen hardship and hunger.
Sarah will never stop fighting to protect our most basic rights. She knows how crucial it is to look out for our fellow Americans and lend a hand — to lift each other up and ensure that everyone can make ends meet and put food on the table.
Thank you for standing up for what’s right,
