AOC Caught In Blatant Lie About Trump Admin Cutting 700,000 People From Food Stamps

PLEASE CLICK HERE TO ACCESS THE ORIGINAL FULL STORY


The following article, AOC Caught In Blatant Lie About Trump Admin Cutting 700,000 People From Food Stamps, was first published on Flag And Cross.

There are lies and then there are damned lies. Freshman lawmaker Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) doesn’t know the difference between the two – if you can believe that!

It’s as if AOC rolled out of bed one morning and said, I’m running for Congress and I don’t care if I know what I’m talking about or not! And she would have been right, considering she won her initial election.

Check out the incredibly clueless Democrat Socialist thinking she knows what she’s talking about when it comes to food stamps. Clearly, she has no idea what is going on…

My family relied on food stamps (EBT) when my dad died at 48.

I was a student. If this happened then, we might’ve just starved.

Now, many people will.

It’s shameful how the GOP works overtime to create freebies for the rich while dissolving lifelines of those who need it most.

Here’s the rub…

Another viral-but-misleading tweet from AOC. The work requirement rule doesn’t affect parents, which she would have known had she read the story: “The USDA rule change affects people between the ages of 18 and 49 who are childless and not disabled.”

More reactions:

The rule applies to able-bodied adults between the ages of 18 and 49 who do not have dependents.

The rule wouldn’t apply to parents with minor children, the elderly, or disabled people.

The rule ignores the reality of American life.

Plenty of parents who support can’t claim “adult” (18+) children as dependents.

Getting disability status is notoriously difficult &food is an immediate need. What if someone has an undiagnosed mental issue, like severe depression?

Gonna put on my Ryan Conservative hat for one second (just one second, promise), but damn, this is what progressives want: permanent childhood.

Quote-unquote adult 18+ children. My God.

All right, back to Big Government Caudilloism Conservatism now.

And it does not consider those of us who are caring for aging or disabled parents…A 24/7 job.

Well, that and the requirements for being exempted for the work requirement don’t look that onerous, at least on paper: “incapacity to work” is based on a doctor’s note, not SSI/Soc Sec eligibility, inability by reason of being a caregiver is for any child under 6, not just —–

your own kid, or caring for an adult who is incapacitated more than 20 hours per week, based on a self-report rather than some extensive proof, etc.

Nothing is stopping you or others from helping these ppl financially or physically. Why does the funding need to go thru the gov first if you don’t trust their standards of criteria?

These exclusionary “rules” sound great to anyone who hasn’t dealt with the actual lived experience. In truth it means paperwork, waiting, & absurdist bureaucracy.

Let’s talk about the example of severe depression, which is an elevated risk for people in economic hardship.

Hmmm … Not true, Huh? What a surprise! Maybe we should label only the TRUE phrases, as that would be a much lower number to read and absorb. OCA is a real liar (Not at the Schiff level yet, but trying hard to catch-up) but the Left will continue to MAKE-UP oratory(& the media will push it) to fit their insane destructive policies. Trump 2020 – He keeps his promises. “What’s in your wallet”? (If you have not gained from this administration, then you probably are not invested in America).
