Obama Had ObamaCare, Biden Has BidenStamps


The Biden Administration framed its decision this week to increase food stamp benefits by 25 percent—the largest expansion of a welfare program since ObamaCare—as an innocent adjustment to an algorithm. It says it simply “reflects current cost realities.”

In truth, it reflects current political realities.

At the federal level, the same executive and legislative branch leaders who transformed temporary unemployment benefits into a long-term welfare program (and continue to do so despite there being more than 10 million open jobs) still hold the levers of power.
