Can Ryan’s budget be a light in the forest fire? The Obama Administration has generated so much debt, we are at a make-or-break point this election. A prime example of a possible remedy can be shown in Paul Ryan’s budget, and specifically in the FNS Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) –-formerly called the Food Stamp Program. It seems few remember the saying: Feed a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish, and he will eat for a lifetime.
The above truism sheds light on every negative statement made about the Ryan Budget. Albeit, quite a few were made. The amount of food assistance each family needs is directly related to the priorities by the family on feeding their own children. That priority supersedes having 3 TV’s instead of two, normal vehicles instead of fancy ones, fewer CD’s, I-Pods, and toys to propel one through the day.
