What's wrong with the requirement to work (if not disabled) in order to receive food stamps?  Is work anathema to the left?

Not to mention over 1 Million Veteran's needing food stamps to survive.

Trump’s GOP is looking to deeply cut food stamps — hitting his voters hard

 

 

If Republicans succeed in their multi-front campaign to cut back on food stamps, the burden will fall heaviest on the working-class, rural white voters on whom President Trump has staked the future of their party.

 

House Republicans on Thursday passed legislation that would require Americans ages 18 through 59 to either work part time or enroll in 20 hours per week of workforce training to receive food stamps.

 

On the same day, the White House unveiled a proposal to consolidate the public safety net — including the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) — under a revamped health department. The program, my colleagues Amy Goldstein and Caitlin Dewey write, “has an explicit aim of building standardized requirements that people must work or prepare for jobs to qualify for government help.”
