Biden’s Food Stamp Increase Is Harmful, Misguided, and Illegal


Back in January, President Biden issued an order asking the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to “consider” updating food stamp benefits to reflect “the true cost of a basic healthy diet.”

When your boss asks you to consider doing something, most employees—at least those interested in keeping their jobs—know this isn’t really a request at all. Fast-forward to August 16. Not surprisingly, the USDA responded to Biden’s “request” by increasing food stamp benefits by an astounding 25 percent.

That’s a massive expansion of welfare—and it’s harmful, misguided, and illegal.
