Huelskamp: “More food stamp recipients should be working” (VIDEO)
Both chambers of Congress have passed versions of the 2013 farm bill, and right now a conference committee is working to resolve differences between them.
Eighty percent of the farm bill is for food stamps, and according to First District Kansas Congressman Tim Huelskamp (R-KS,) that’s where the hold-up is:
The House has passed legislation to slash approximately $40 billion annually, or about 5 percent including changes in eligibility and work requirements. The Senate wants to cut a much smaller $4 billion cut.
