Five Things You Probably Don’t Know About Food Stamps

1. A large and growing share of SNAP households are working households
 One reason why SNAP is serving more working families is that, for a growing share of  the nation’s workers, having a job has not been enough to keep them out of poverty.
2. SNAP responded quickly and effectively to the recession.
3. Today’s large SNAP caseloads mostly reflect the extraordinarily deep and prolonged recession and the weak recovery.
4. SNAP has one of the most rigorous quality control systems of any public benefit program.

5. SNAP’s recent growth is temporary.
 Over the long term, SNAP is not growing faster than the economy. So, it is not contributing to the nation’s long-term fiscal problems.

EU QUERO…

ver mais conversas politicas sérias sendo iniciadas;
corporações fora da governamentação e o povo de volta ao poder;
paz ao invés de militarização;
poder falar o que eu penso sem comprometer meu emprego;
uma melhor regulação de bancos e mercados;
que meus filhos tenham um emprego e saúde;
a democracia verdadeira que 99% de nós não temos mais;

hello sunrisenightfall. Thank you for reblogging this and for translating it into Portuguese (at least that’s what Google translate tells me it is, correct me if I’m wrong). I appreciate it and I’m glad that the message of the 99% can reach those outside of the English language. Thank you for the translation, friend. :)

Olá sunrisenightfall. Obrigado por reblogging isso e traduzi-la emPortuguês (pelo menos é o que o Google traduzir me diz que é, me corrija se eu estiver errado). Eu aprecio isso e eu estou contente que a mensagem do 99% pode alcançar aqueles que estão fora do idioma Inglês. Obrigado pela tradução, amigo. :)
