  •  Less $$ to recipients or higher bar to qualify? (2+ / 0-)

    •  Either way it will result in less $$ to recipients (7+ / 0-)

      Because they adjust the amount you get by how much you make below the bar to qualify. So if they raise the bar to qualify (meaning you have to earn less) then they also reduce the amount to the majority of people who are on food stamps, who bring in some amount of money a month. (Working families, people on disability, etc.)
