An average family of four would face an 11 percent cut in monthly benefits after Sept. 1 and, even more important, tighter enforcement of rules would require that households exhaust most of their liquid assets before qualifying for help. [...]It's the worst case scenario, cutting both benefits and eligibility, forcing families to "exhaust" their resources before they can qualify for less. Millions would be shut out of the program entirely.

That's your Republican, Romney-endorsed budget right there: let millions starve so the Pentagon will be happy and the rich can keep their taxes low.
