Problems with the SNAP Program

by Eli Kroes

Jeremy continues the discussion on Obama's prisoner swap, and how it directly conflicts with a law he signed into effect last year. Why wasn't Congress involved in the decision?? Later, Jeremy digs into a report coming out of Stanford University regarding the SNAP (or Food Stamps) program. One conclusion is that people who DON'T get government assistance are healthier, but why? And what can we do to get people on Food Stamps healthier? Photo courtesy of USDAgov.
