VAN DREW CALLS OUT PRESIDENT BIDEN AND CONGRESSIONAL DEMOCRATS FOR WASTING TRILLIONS WHILE OUR SOLDIERS GO ON FOOD STAMPS
September 19, 2022 — Congressman Van Drew issued the following statement calling out President Biden and congressional Democrats for frivolously wasting trillions of Americans taxpayer dollars, yet our country’s soldiers are being encouraged to take advantage of food stamps to combat rising inflation.
“Instead of throwing billions of dollars to hire more federal bureaucrats, Congress should be providing aid and resources to our country’s servicemembers who sacrifice their lives to protect our great nation,” said Congressman Van Drew. “To add to this madness, thanks to the funds from the American Rescue Plan, liberal cities are now beginning a program to provide tens of thousands of dollars for homeless people. Yet, our soldiers are having to resort to using food stamps because of Democrats failed policies and misguided priorities.
“Democrats are worried about implementing ‘woke’ programs and appeasing far-left ideologies, and it is coming at the expense of our servicemembers who can barely afford groceries to feed their families. Despite this, President Biden goes on television and claims inflation being at 8.3% is ‘only up an inch,’ further demonstrating how out of touch he is with reality. We must take care of the American people, especially those who put their lives on the lines to defend our freedoms. President Biden needs to get his head out of the sand and start prioritizing our people and our country.”
