CMR prefers House Farm Bill

The House Farm Bill has stirred controversy by (among other things) adding work requirements to SNAP program food benefits. The Congressional Budget Office estimates the bill is expected to result in a reduction in benefits of almost $16 billion in nutrition spending. Lest you think any money will be saved by not feeding kids, the elderly and the disabled, the bill will increase spending to administer the program by over $16 billion.

Doesn’t make financial or moral sense to me. What is her reasoning for supporting this bill? Can’t be the arithmetic, eh?
