All the news and too much news

The repugs have been using russiagate as a cover for some of their moves. But dipshit is doing it also. One hidden item in the budget dipshit put out was a "fee" (The repug code word for tax.) on stores who accept food stamps.


"The White House proposal to overhaul the U.S. food stamp program and the deep cuts it would make to benefits for the poorest households has sparked public outrage on both sides of the aisle. But there's another change tucked into the proposal that businesses say caught them off guard and could wind up costing them more than $2 billion.

That provision is a new fee that the White House wants to charge retailers that accept food stamps, which is now known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.

The Office of Management and Budget said the fee would be assessed when stores sign up and would require renewal after five years. The budget office said the amount would depend on the size and type of retailer, but the president's budget estimates that the fee would generate $2.4 billion in revenue over the next decade."
