GOP proposal would require food stamp recipients to show photo ID


It's racistssssss.............................................:)

Several House Republicans have introduced a proposal that would require food stamp recipients to show photo identification when making purchases -- a move they say is necessary to prevent fraud in the program that aids 1 in 7 Americans.

Rep. Matt Salmon, R-Ariz., introduced the SNAP Verify Act, which would require individuals who receive acceptance through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program to present a photo ID when buying products at stores that accept food stamp recipients.

"My bill simply requires the photo identification of authorized users of SNAP electronic benefit cards at the point of transaction," Salmon said in a statement. "With over $750 million in SNAP card and food trafficking fraud each year, it is time Congress take action to address the rampant waste in this program."

  1. Hmmm, that means all of the victim class would then have ID, soooo, then we can institute voter ID laws without being racisssst..... ;)

  2. Since voting is a right and requires no id then the same rules apply to buying a gun since you have a constitutional right to buy a gun.
