How many kids need to go hungry to pay for corporate tax breaks and giveaways?

Tell Congress: No child should go hungry to pay for corporate tax breaks.

This week, the House will vote on Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s (R-VA) proposal to enact cuts to SNAP food aid programs that are twice as large as the cuts originally proposed. This would leave millions without the vital nutritional assistance they desperately need.

You may recall that earlier in the summer the House debated cuts to food stamps as part of the Farm Bill. Instead of finding a compromise to send the bill to President Obama to sign, House Republican leaders crafted legislation to vote only on the SNAP cuts, in an effort to cut away as much nutritional aid as possible without having to work across the aisle.

Nearly one out of four Americans (24 percent) say they had trouble putting food on the table in the past 12 months — making the United States stand out among wealthy nations in the percentage of its citizens struggling to afford life’s basic necessities. Cutting food assistance to families, including children and low-income seniors, is simply the wrong thing to do.
