Food Stamp Recruiting

Acton Institute Commentary

The above is a link to an Acton Institute article by Elise Hilton.  Prior to reading this article I knew little about the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP),  the federal government’s “food stamp” program.  My Aunt Evelyn who is way smarter than she would admit is a proponent of a “strong central government.”  I can understand the need for the federal government to have clout in a number of important areas such as in national defense and security matters and also in many social programs.  My belief however is that even Aunt Evelyn would agree with the conclusion of this article, i.e., that the government has “run amok” in the case of SNAP.  What do you think?  RMF
