Take action to support SNAP
Congressman Jim McGovern of Massachusetts tells this story:
"Every indication is that Republicans will try to cut this critical program that serves over 46 million people a year. As a member of the House Agriculture Committee, and a strong supporter of the SNAP program, I will fight any proposed changes that make it more difficult for the hungry in America to get the food they need. We cannot balance the budget on the backs of poor people.
