At least the Grinch stopped at Christmas.
Donald Trump and Republicans, on the other hand, will make PA families go hungry year round. Just before the holidays, they’re rolling out plans to cut nutritional assistance for millions, including at least 75,000 PA families.
President Trump’s proposed #SNAP rules could leave 3.7 million Americans hungry – largely children, families, seniors, and people with disabilities.— Senator Bob Casey (@SenBobCasey) December 4, 2019
We are the richest nation on Earth. There is no reason we can’t afford to feed our Nation’s most vulnerable.
