Vote Description

Commonly referred to as the Farm Bill but more accurately described as the Food Stamp and Farm Bill. Despite claims of reform, the bill continues to spend nearly $1 trillion on a variety of programs, including crop subsidies, conservation programs and food stamps.

Heritage Action Position

America is nearly $17 trillion in debt, yet the bill is projected to cost $940 billion, as scored by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO). Proponents claim it will reduce the deficit, but it is actually a 56 percent increase from the 2008 bill, which was projected to cost $604 billion. Not surprisingly, the 2008 bill actually ended up costing much more. America cannot afford another congressional boondoggle; now is the time to cut spending, not grow it. Nearly 80 percent of the bill’s spending goes towards the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), more commonly known as food stamps. There are now nearly 48 million individuals on food stamps, compared with nearly 31 million in 2008 and 17 million in 2000. Even after dramatic loosening of eligibility standards contributed to one in seven Americans now collecting food stamps, there has been scant discussion of reform. The House bill’s food stamp savings are miniscule, just 2.5% of a program that has experienced exponential growth.
