Feds spend more in food stamps in ONE month than POTUS wants for entire YEAR of wall funding

Posted on December 22, 2018 in Border Security, Budget, Democrats, Illegal Immigration, Immigration Now that Democrats have allowed part of the government to be shut down because they refuse to protect our country and give POTUS Donald Trump his $5 billion border wall budget request, it’s time to put some things in perspective.

Like the amount of money at play here. And Democrats’ true motivations.

First the money. Democrats and Leftist talking heads have complained that the $5 billion POTUS Donald Trump wants in fiscal year 2019 funding for his promised border wall is excessively expensive, but a new analysis finds that this argument to be, well, asinine.

The federal government spends more on the food stamp program in a single month than the president’s entire FY ’19 border wall budget request, CNS News‘ Craig Bannister noted on Friday.

“In October, according to the Monthly Treasury Statement, the federal government spent $5,892,000,000 on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), which is also known as the food stamp program,” Bannister writes.

“In November, according to the statement for that month, the federal government spent another $5,428,000,000 on the food stamp program, bringing the total so far for fiscal 2019 (after only two months) to $11,320,000,000—or an average of $5,660,000,000 per month,” he added.
