The omnibus spending bill does not defund the Department of Agriculture’s controversial advertising and outreach campaigns — including a partnership with the Mexican government — aimed at promoting food-stamp use.

Instead, House Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers is “strongly” encouraging the department to stop those activities.

In an explanatory statement offered in conjunction with the spending bill, Rogers lays out the concern about the use of taxpayer dollars to fund advertising, outreach and the department’s decade-long partnership with the Mexican government aimed at promoting food stamps.

“There is concern about the use of valuable tax dollars to promote enrollment of SNAP through radio, television and other advertisements as well as outreach activities with foreign governments to encourage the use of SNAP,” Rogers writes.

“USDA is strongly encouraged to cease these types of government-sponsored recruitment activities,” he said.

I read about people using EBT cards at vacation locations, gambling casinos, selling foodstamps on Craigslist...

What is wrong with the ruling class in this country? 

Are these really poor people?
