Again I ask… is this necessary?
MADISON, Wis.— Gov. Tony Evers, the United State Department of Agriculture and Food and Nutrition Service came to an agreement that secures more than $70 million in food assistance. According to a press release issued by Gov. Evers, this will benefit more than 400,000 households in the Badger State. That’s more than 770,000 people.[…]
“More than $70 million a month means we can get support to a lot of folks across our state who are still struggling in the midst of a pandemic and need help putting food on the table,” said Gov. Evers. “I’m proud we were able to work with our federal partners to come to an agreement that will ensure we can keep providing these critical resources to Wisconsinites across our state.”
Wisconsin has less than 4% unemployment. Everybody who is willing and able to work can have a job and pay for their own food. Why are taxpayers still being asked to fund this program at the same level we did at the height of the pandemic?
