Here's the thing, unemployment at 4.3%? What about those who have exhausted their UE benefits, and appeals for UE benefits, and the unemployable, the people who might be working 2 or more part time jobs and still aren't able to make it, wages are stagnant, very few pay raises by employers and corporations, those Trump tax cuts? the wealthy and top 1% are pocketing that money and not giving anything to employees.
Fox noise would have their listeners believe that SNAP recipients are living high on the hog and eating steak and lobster.
And I'm relatively sure that red states and whites are the people receiving the most in SNAP benefits. That would be the GOP and Trump base red states receive the most in snap benefits. I could be wrong about my claim though, if I am, someone please correct me.
