Brace yourself for the newest domestic threat

We’ve already seem mobs for less.
Check it out:

With 20 percent of all American households on food stamps, amounting to 23.1 million households and 47.6 million individuals in July, an across-the-board cut in food-stamp benefits is scheduled to go into effect in November, even though most recipients know nothing about the coming change.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food and Nutrition Service, the benefit increase granted by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 to help people adversely affected by the recession is scheduled to expire Nov. 1.

The USDA projects that the average monthly food stamp payment of approximately $272 per household will decline in November by $36 for a family of four.

Will the resulting drop in benefits prompt riots? A WND investigation has found the problem of abuse in income-transfer programs for low-income individuals and families is not limited to the USDA food stamp, or SNAP, program.
