According to research, 1 in 4 people might lose their access to food stamps over a GOP measure

Based on a recent estimate of the GOP proposal, which would extend job requirements to a certain family with kids and seniors over 50, roughly 10 million Americans who currently receive food stamps or around 1 in 4, might lack access to the food assistance.

The idea might have an impact on citizens of every state, but Alaskans, South Carolinians, and Oklahomans might get the worst hurt, based on a study by the left-leaning Center on Budget and Policy Priorities. The research is calculated using the size of families, including those with older individuals and households that have kids older than 7, in those states which are eligible for the new employment rules.

The America Works Act, which was proposed previously this month by Rep. Dusty Johnson of South Dakota and over 20 other Republican members, is intended to increase the number of people receiving food stamps who are employed. Yet, studies suggest that the majority of SNAP recipients, the official name for the food stamp program can work are currently doing so, according to Dottie Rosenbaum, the senior fellow at the CBPP.

Rosenbaum said of the proposal: “It presents an image of low-income individuals that is false.”
