Joe Biden is giving his political allies a lot of money with help from the government. His rogue government doesn’t care if about the law.
And the White House is in flames after Biden’s illegal cash grab was exposed in this shocking report.
The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), which used to be called “food stamps,” is one of the most important parts of the welfare state.
Since 2008, when Barack Obama was president, the amount spent on SNAP benefits has nearly tripled, from $40 billion to $113.8 billion.
SNAP benefits grew a lot again because of the pandemic, and now President Joe Biden is trying to keep the gravy train going by breaking a law that former President Donald Trump signed.
A report from the Government Accountability Office (GAO), which is an independent agency that keeps an eye on Congress, says that the Biden administration is breaking the 2018 Farm Bill by illegally increasing SNAP spending by a huge $200 billion.
The $200 billion increase would be the first time in 45 years, since Jimmy Carter was president, that SNAP benefits have gone up more than the rate of inflation.
When deciding how much to raise SNAP benefits, the Biden administration broke the rules set by the 2018 Farm Bill.
The Department of Agriculture (USDA) figures out how much it costs to eat a healthy diet at four different price points: cheap, moderately priced, expensive, and lavish.
The “thrifty” price point has always been used to figure out SNAP benefits, and the price level was last looked at 15 years ago.
The 2018 Farm Bill said that every five years, the USDA has to figure out how much a healthy diet costs.
The USDA uses a computer model to figure out how much a healthy diet costs. The model takes into account a wide range of foods, their nutritional information, and their prices.
The GAO said that the USDA changed the data that went into the computer model in order to get more SNAP benefits.
This illegal action broke almost a dozen rules set up by the USDA, which led to a 21% increase in SNAP benefits.
Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack was angry when a GAO report pointed out that his agency had given illegally higher benefits.
“We stand firm on both the quality of our work and the difference it made in millions of people’s lives,” Vilsack said in response to the GAO report. “We owed it to the American people to get the revaluation done well and get it done quickly — and that’s exactly what we did.”
After illegally trying to get rid of more than $500 billion in student loan debt, President Biden is at it again by illegally trying to give more money to people who get food stamps.
Now that the pandemic is over and unemployment is low, businesses are desperate for help, but the Biden administration is trying to give government money to able-bodied workers.
Joe Biden is trying to completely change the United States by illegally expanding the welfare state in a big way.
