This year, Congress gave every millionaire in the United States a $51,000 tax break under the new tax law that Republicans passed in 2017. To pay for the new tax law, Republicans in Congress are proposing a whole new array of cuts to public programs starting with big cuts in the Farm Bill that would make it harder for millions to put food on the table for their families.
The House Republican Farm Bill (H.R. 2) cuts $20 billion from SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) by creating new requirements, red tape, and bureaucratic hoops that will make it much harder to access critical benefits. The bill is currently under consideration by the House Rules Committee and will be up for a vote later this week.

If we can afford tax cuts for the wealthy and big corporations, we can afford the food that working families need to survive.
