The coronavirus pandemic has allowed liberals and Democratic leadership to bring the United States one step closer to a government-dependent socialist nation. Beginning in October of this year, the food stamp assistance program will see its single largest increase in history.

The Associated Press reports “The Biden administration has approved a significant and permanent increase in the levels of food stamp assistance available to needy families – the largest single increase in the program’s history.”

Officially known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), assistance will increase by over 25% more than pre-pandemic levels for the roughly 42 million SNAP beneficiaries or 12 percent of the population. The aid package increases the average monthly per-person benefits from $121 to $157.

The Associated Press reports:

The increase is part of a multi-pronged Biden administration effort to strengthen the country’s social safety net. Poverty and food security activists maintain that longstanding inadequacies in that safety net were laid bare by the COVID-19 pandemic, presenting an opportunity to make generational improvements that reach beyond the current public health crisis.

Activists say the previous levels of pre-pandemic SNAP assistance simply weren’t enough, forcing many households to choose cheaper, less nutritious options or simply go hungry as the funds ran low toward the end of the month.

Stacy Dean, deputy undersecretary for food, nutrition and consumer services said in a report, “To set SNAP families up for success, we need a Thrifty Food Plan that supports current dietary guidance on a budget.” She added, “Too many of our fellow Americans struggle to afford healthy meals. The revised plan is one step toward getting them the support they need to feed their families.”

    He and the communist left cause inflation and joblessness to rise so they can rush in and save the needy from starvation at the cost to the American taxpayers. Everything the communist left does is for the sake of their own power and demolition of the greatest capitalist society know to mankind. All they have ever done is to create a problem so they can fix the problem they created while blaming it on someone [Trump] else and then brag about the problem being solved of which they created!
