Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Washingtontimes.com: “AOC rips GOP’s ‘freebies for the rich’ as new food stamps rules roll out”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Thursday it is “shameful” for Republicans to issue work requirements for food stamp recipients while they also support tax cuts for “the rich.”

The New York Democrat excoriated Republicans for changes to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), which affects people ages 18 through 49 who are childless and not disabled.

“My family relied on food stamps (EBT) when my dad died at 48,” Ms. Cortez tweeted Thursday. “I was a student. If this happened then, we might’ve just starved. Now, many people will. It’s shameful how the GOP works overtime to create freebies for the rich while dissolving lifelines of those who need it most.”
