Senate panel OKs farm bill, but House wants work provisions

There are 6 comments on the KNOE-TV Monroe story from Wednesday Jun 13, titled Senate panel OKs farm bill, but House wants work provisions. In it, KNOE-TV Monroe reports that:

A Senate panel approved a modest, bipartisan rewrite of federal farm and nutrition programs on Wednesday, sidestepping a fight for now but setting up a clash with House Republicans intent on beefing up work requirements for food stamps. The legislation, approved by a bipartisan 20-1 vote, would renew farm safety-net programs such as subsidies for crop insurance, farm credit, and land conservation.

If you have to do something, anything,to get one, what's the point of a SNAP credit card. It will just raise the price of selling it.

Even if all we can find for them to do is wash reflectors along the road they should work if they can. But, leave them enough time to look for real jobs.
Give a living minimum wage so that we aren't paying walmart's employees for them and people have a reason to work.

Never understood how they managed to put food stamps in to a farm bill.

As far as work requirements, how about this.....

Work or go hungry. Sit back and watch how fast the leeches suddenly find jobs.

We don't need a "Jobs" provision... We need a "Pay" provision.
