I keep hearing our reps saying we are a compassionate state but they keep cutting benefits to the most needy part of our population. The war on the poor continues.

War on the Poor? Richard please. It said able bodied childless adults between 18-49 were cut off after a certain point. Not kids, old folks, or disabled folks. ABLE BODIED CHILDLESS ADULTS.

my wife is a full time student and i am disabled and we got snap for three months that was 49.00 they did not count our car payment and they told us since we were 49yrs old we had to find a job . so i wonder how many people out of that 25000 got screwed by gov. asa and his dhs mob . all they want to do is put more people in prison because they make a lot of money that way they dont care about the old and disabled just the same crap arkansas has always done to the people of this state .
