2-M Kids, Parents To Lose Food Aid Due To GOP Inaction

As US lawmakers finalize this year's funding bills amid yet another shutdown threat, progressive advocates warned that Congress must act immediately to ensure the uninterrupted flow of food aid from a key program on which millions of children and their parents depend, as reported by Brett Wilkins for Common Dreams.

Advocates including US Congressional Progressive Caucus Chair Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) and Rep. Cori Bush (D-Mo.) rallied outside the US Capitol in Washington, D.C. to implore lawmakers to pass a clean budget without cuts to programs like the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), and Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP), Raw Story also reported.


All the news: Business man in suit and tie smiling and reading a newspaper near the financial district.

"Programs like WIC, TANF, and SNAP are essential tools for ending poverty and hunger. But instead of helping Democrats expand these programs and deliver for working families, Republicans are constantly working to CUT them in favor of tax breaks for the wealthy," Jayapal said on social media.


Government & politics: Politicians, government officials and delegates standing in front of their country flags in a political event in the financial district.

"It's shameful." Rep. Lori Trahan (D-Mass.) warned that "Republicans are forcing us to the brink of a shutdown for the third time in four months," and that "shutdowns don't affect the donor class, but they're devastating for service members who need their paychecks, moms who need WIC to feed their kids, and families trying to heat their homes."
