aAfter illegally bailing out college graduates with a $400 billion student debt amnesty, President Joe Biden is back at it again. This time, he’s illegally increasing his food stamp benefits by $200 billion. House Republicans must put an end to both of these illegal actions.
According to the Government Accountability Office report Biden’s Department of Agriculture, announced last week, has abused its powers under the 2018 Farm Bill to speed up a legislative review of food costs. , and broke its own guidelines. As a result of these illegal changes, food stamp benefits increased above inflation for the first time in his 45 years.

The 2018 Farm Bill called for a new assessment to be completed by 2022, followed by a reassessment every five years. This reassessment is essentially a computer model that inputs food, price and nutrition data to create a “market basket” of food and beverages needed to support a healthy diet.
According to the GAO, the Biden administration essentially cooked up its computer model book, breaking almost 10 internal USDA guidelines in the process and increasing maximum food stamp profits by a whopping 21%.
Predictably, even after being presented with the GAO’s conclusions, the Biden administration did not apologize for its misconduct.
“We stand firm both in the quality of our work and the difference it has made in the lives of millions,” USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack said in a GAO report. said in response to the letter. Get it done quickly — that’s exactly what we did. ”
From illegal student relief to his outright refusal to enforce our country’s immigration laws to this food stamp bonanza, Biden has proven there is no law he won’t break for political gain. A House Republican withdrew this food stamp bonus and added a dime to the USDA until he re-evaluated it as required by the 2018 Farm Bill, which this time established. not.
