USA – President Biden’s overreach on SNAP (AEI)

Angela Rachidi

This week, President Biden’s administration increased the benefit levels for recipients of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), or “food stamps,” by more than 20 percent, adding up to $20 billion per year to the program. To put this into context, the total cost of SNAP was just over $20 billion in 2000 in today’s dollars, meaning this change will result in a nearly five-fold increase to SNAP within the past two decades.
