Much like grocers in the stamp towns of the late 1930s, grocery chains today continue to bring in increased sales from SNAP receipts during recessions. Remember last winter when stimulus funds expired and Wal-Mart disclosed lower than expected fourth quarter profits? While Wal-Mart refuses to disclose its total revenues from SNAP, it is estimated they took in 18 percent of total SNAP benefits in 2013, or close to $13 billion in sales. They publicly reported lower earnings per share as “the sales impact from the reduction in SNAP benefits that went into effect Nov. 1 is greater than we expected.”

Color me shocked that a program that benefits farmers, business, and families has been wildly successful for 50 years and a such huge part of Walmart’s profits that it’s quarterly earnings did when the feds cut benefits to the poor. Republicans may actually be biting the (wealthy) hands that feed them by trying to starve the poor on this one.
