Grothman Pushing for SNAP Amendment
Congressman Glenn Grothman is pushing an
amendment that would prohibit the use of SNAP funding for the purchase of soda.
Grothman says the idea has received a bit of backlash from supporters of the
program. But he argues that the program should be limited in some ways because
it is funded through taxes. Grothman adds that the change would give people
incentive to work for the money to buy extra products like soda if they really
want it – and would create a pathway for them to work their way off of food
