Abstract

Good news—Congress was finally able to reach an agreement on the Farm Bill, showing that, although it may be rare, lawmakers on both sides of the aisle can still work in a bipartisan fashion to pass legislation. But hold your applause. The bad news—the compromise that was reached cut another $8.6 billion in funding from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as food stamps. And with the bill now passed through Congress and on its way to the president’s desk, it looks as though this cut is here to stay.
