Trump Pushes Senate to Pass Work Requirements for Food Stamps

On Thursday President Donald Trump made his support for work requirements for food stamps recipients known.

“When the House and Senate meet on the very important Farm Bill – we love our farmers – hopefully, they will be able to leave the WORK REQUIREMENTS FOR FOOD STAMPS PROVISION that the House approved,” Trump tweeted.

The bill passed through the House, but barely, by a vote of 213-211. This bill includes work requirements for single food stamps recipients. The bill was opposed unanimously by Democrats.

Per Breitbart News:

The House and the Senate have to take the bill to conference, however, which will likely strip the provision from the final bill to get past the 60 vote threshold.

Trump urged the Senate to end the filibuster and move the legislation forward.

“Senate should go to 51 votes!” he wrote.

The current Farm Bill expires September 30.
