Biden’s Food Stamp Expansion Linked to 15% Jump in Grocery Prices

Bidenomics is a phrase that instantly brings to mind the out-of-control gas prices, the cost of grocery shopping, and other expenses. This is why more than 7 out of 10 Americans think the country is headed in the wrong direction.

Before we proceed, have a look at this “X” message from Joe Biden’s handlers.

Bidenomics is about growing the economy by lowering costs and investing in America.

Absolute nonsense. Joe’s “investments” are a wealth redistribution scheme.

You got it? Now let’s get back to reality.

According to government watchdog Foundation for Government Accountability, the Biden administration’s push to increase benefits for food stamps by more than one trillion dollars is probably behind a 15% increase in grocery costs.

In 2021, the Department of Agriculture released revised nutritional standards for the Supplemental Assistance Program (SNAP), which increased the program’s average by a staggering 27 percent.

It gets worse.

According to the watchdog group, the overall spending on the program has more than doubled from 2019 to 2022. It went up from $4.5 billion to $11 billion, and it is expected to increase by 5.8% in 2023.

Jonathan Ingram is the vice president for Policy and Research of the Foundation for Government Accountability. He accused the USDA of falsifying its books.

USDA manipulated its books in order to increase food stamp benefits by 27% — the biggest permanent increase ever recorded. They did it without consulting Congress. The data shows that the Biden administration’s overreach caused massive increases in grocery prices. They are feeding inflation and not stopping hunger.

It doesn’t take Alex Jones for me to think that the Biden Administration is on a mission to create a permanent underclass in America. They are reliant, of course, on the generous federal government coffers. Then, everything falls into place. That is, in the eyes of Democrats.

It all makes sense. George Bernard Shaw, an Irish playwright who was also a socialist, summed up the situation nicely:

Paul will always support a government that steals Peter.

Did I mention the Foundation for Government Accountability estimated that Congress could recover more than $193 Billion in taxpayer funds if they had the courage to repeal Biden’s massive expansion of the food stamps program?

Fairly, the Republican-controlled Congress has proposed legislation that would create stricter work requirements for SNAP recipients — food stamp recipients. This is to ensure long-term recipients are required to work at least part-time and also to end the practice whereby several states waive work requirements entirely.

It should be obvious to Republicans that this is a big issue. But, as we have seen in the past, when Democrats lie to the public and claim that Republicans plan to “cut” benefits from Social Security, and other government programs (taxpayer benefit programs), a majority of Republicans fold like cheap suits.

Meanwhile, Bidenonomics: The socialist program that Democrats continue to lie about.
