Tell Donald Trump to SNAP Out of It!

Alert--

Donald Trump and his Capitol Hill Cronies want to slash the budgets of income security programs, such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and the National School Lunch Program by 892 billion dollars by 2027. They do this knowing full well that, despite increasingly draconian measures to keep our fellow Americans in need off the rolls, more and working families in rural and urban America have been forced to reach for a hand up to make sure their children don't have to go to bed hungry

The rapid rise in unemployment of middle-class Americans, stemming from the massive layoffs during the Great Recession (Which Main Street American's didn't cause)  triggered a substantial increase in enrollment in programs such as SNAP. Despite the recession being "over" enrollment has largely maintained its level mid-recession levels. People are still hurting, children are still hungry, and we aren't going to stand for it. 

With this in mind, I ask you to join me in signing this open letter to President Trump, Paul Ryan, and Vicky Hartzler. Together, our voices will be deafening. We will let them know that We Will Not Stand Idly By while our fellow American's are left to suffer.

They will insist that they need to cut these programs so they can afford to fund their kickbacks to their fat cat donors but we will just raise our voices louder until we cannot be ignored. The life, health, and dignity of a working family in America have no place on the budgetary chopping block, least of all to pay for a third yacht. 

 

My Name is Renee Hoagenson and I am running for Congress in Missouri's 4th Congressional District.

I humbly but urgently ask you, whether you are from the Rural slow rolling plains of Missouri, or ever-changing New York, whether you are from California or Connecticut, Massachusetts or Maryland I ask you to sign your name on our open letter today and make sure that the most vulnerable among us are not left unheard. 

Thank you, 

Renee Kennedy Hoagenson 

Democratic Candidate, MO-4

    They must be really proud of themselves at the end of each day when they’ve screwed yet another vulnerable population out of a benefit. Congress let CHIP expire, and now that the kids are sick, the Republicans want to starve them out as well. Such a “pro-life” platform!

    Safety-net programs are vital to support those less fortunate, those in need – especially children.

    Outrageous to take lunch off the table in Missouri’s elementary schools to pad the pockets of Trump’s billionaire cabinet appointees. Anyone who is not outraged is not paying attention.

    For all the good it will do. These folks simply do not care about anyone except corporate donors! Thanks to “ Citizens United”. Somehow, some way we HAVE to get it across to the marginal trump supporters that he IS their worst enemy.

    Our children are important – it is incumbent on ALL of us to feed them, so that they may reach their full potential and truly make America great. Great – for the FIRST time!

    We should be bolstering social programs to make them work better and serve everyone.
