Democrats love to get their voters hooked on social benefits so that they can manipulate them into voting for them come election time.
According to reports, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors have created a special marketing team to encourage people to sign up for food stamps.
They are trying to increase participation in order to maintain federal funding for their program.
Conservative Tribune reports:
The supervisors are also trying to increase the percentage of eligible residents who are participating in the program by 50 percent, from 66.3 percent to 100 percent, Breitbart reported.
The point is simple, and it’s not necessarily about helping the poor: Since Los Angeles County would lose $1.8 billion in federal funding if President Donald Trump’s proposed federal budget is approved, as Breitbart points out, the county is trying to increase its welfare caseload as much as possible to keep the federal money flowing.
Participation in the program among Hispanics has dropped recently due to concern that applicants may be targeted by Immigration and Customs Enforcement. According to data compiled from the Lucile Packard Foundation for Children’s Health, Hispanics account for which account 59 percent the county’s food stamp participants.
Not only are Democrats looking to increase food stamp usage, they also want illegal immigrants to be eligible to apply for them.
Yes, you read that right. They want the American tax payers to fund the wasteful lifestyles of non-citizens.
Remember, when 2018 rolls around, vote Republican and help put an end to these kind of wasteful policies.
