Hi All,

The House of Representatives voted to cut $40 billion to food stamps (aka SNAP – the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program). 

I do not believe that the federal government should reduce costs by allowing America’s neediest families go hungry.

As this decision is closely tied to the public health of millions of people (it this becomes law, 4 million people will lose SNAP), 

I thought it was important to share the news with you all. I have posted two articles written by Paul Krugman, a NYT columnist and economist. 

What do you think about the articles? Do they gain your support for SNAP? Are his articles credible?

Is this pro-SNAP media effective?
