With the start of the holiday season around the corner, millions of Latino families who rely on food stamps to put food on the table will receive less money for groceries as a $5 billion cut in the Cheap NFL Jerseys program takes effect on Friday.
The program, known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), benefits more than 47 million Americans. The National Council of La Raza (NCLR) estimates 17 percent of the program's participants are Latinos.
Families who are enrolled in the SNAP program will see their benefits reduced by about 5 percent, or on average about 16 meals per month, starting on Friday. To put it into perspective, a family of four will see their monthly benefits go from $668 per month down to $632. For one individual, the benefits will drop from $200 per month to $189.
The overwhelming majority of households that receive food stamps through the SNAP program are families with children, seniors or people with disabilities. Eightythree percent of SNAP households have incomes below the poverty line. That's according to a report by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.
The report also estimates the monthly cut in SNAP benefits for individual households.
More cuts to food stamps could be on the horizon
More cuts to the food stamps program could be on the way as the House and Senate prepare to resume debate over the farm bill, which is likely to include cuts to the SNAP program.
The Senate already approved a bill that would slash another $4 billion from the food stamps program over a 10year period, but House Republicans want to make deeper cuts. In September, they voted to approve a bill that would cut $40 billion from the food stamps program over a decade.
Rep. Marlin Stutzman (RInd.), who has been advocating for the cuts, believes the food stamps program is costing taxpayers a lot of money. He says that over the next 10 years, the program will cost nearly $760 billion. In fiscal year 2012, the program cost about $80 billion.
"Since President Obama came into office, SNAP participation has increased at 10 times the rate of job creation, the annual spending on SNAP has doubled, and one in seven Americans now participates in SNAP," Stutzman said in a statement. "This explosive growth in both the SNAP enrollment and federal cost of the program is alarming and requires lawmakers to take costeffective legislative control measures."
Janet Murgua, president and CEO of NCLR, calls these measures to gut the food stamps program even more "unnecessary and downright cruel" and says they will "only serve to cut off access to healthy food for our families."
"Some in Congress are prioritizing arbitrary deficit reduction over feeding America's children," Murgua said in a statement. "Risking the health of America's future is irresponsible."
"We need Congress to instead invest in our future by ensuring that children who will need SNAP in their lifetime are properly fed," she continued. "Our lawmakers must avoid senseless cuts to SNAP and pass a responsible longterm budget."

Rudy Giuliani And The Price Of MilkWhile running for president in 2007, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani told a reporter at a Montgomery, Ala., supermarket that he estimates "a gallon of milk is probably about a $1.50, a loaf of bread about a $1.25, $1.30, last time I bought one." It must have been a few election cycles since his last trip: The grocery store's website listed milk for $3.38 and bread up to $3.49. Bush's reelection campaign in 1992, Vice President Dan Quayle scoffed at the "Murphy Brown situation," referring to a television character who had a child out of wedlock. Quayle called the Brown story "totally unreal," adding, "A highly paid professional woman [with a baby] . give me a break."
Martha Coakley And Shaking HandsIn a display of aloofness that many political observers say led to her defeat by Republican Scott Brown, Democratic Senate candidate and Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley erred in brushing off the idea of ramping up her campaigning. When asked whether she was being too apathetic, she referenced one of Brown's ads and fired back, "As opposed to standing outside Fenway Park? In the cold? Shaking hands?"
Spiro Agnew And Poor NeighborhoodsRepublican vice Wholesale NFL Jerseys presidential candidate Spiro Agnew, branded as Richard Nixon's goto guy on cities, vowed in 1968 to avoid poor neighborhoods. "If you've seen one slum, you've seen them all," Agnew said. Bush caught flak for appearing awed by a supermarket checkout scanner while touring a grocers convention in 1992. It turned out the president was being shown a new bar code technology, and the convention worker who was alongside Bush later said it's "foolish to think the president doesn't know anything about grocery stores. He knew exactly what I was talking about."
George W. Bush And Gas PricesIn 2008, President George W. Bush said he had not heard wholesale nfl jerseys predictions that gas prices could soon hit $4 a gallon. At the time, the national average was $3.29 a gallon.
John Kerry And Cheese SteakIn 2003, Democratic presidential contender John Kerry ordered Swiss cheese on a cheese steak while campaigning in South Philadelphia, straying from the traditional favorite topping, Cheez Whiz.
Mitt Romney And WawaMitt Romney has had his fair share of seemingly outoftouch statements this election cycle, admitting he likes to "fire people" and expressing amazement at the touchscreen ordering system at convenience store Wawa.
Barack Obama And The Private SectorPresident Barack Obama is not exempt from the "gotcha" moment. In June, he described the private sector economy as "doing fine." The gaffe immediately elicited comparisons with his 2008 Republican opponent, John McCain, who said that the "fundamentals of the economy are strong" in the midst of a crippling financial crisis.

unit apartment complex near Malik Jackson Jersey Baylor
Houston based Asset Campus Housing will place a 186 unit complex featuring apartments and townhomes about a mile from Baylor University on University Parks Drive. It will target students with a plan to have "individual leases" that will allow them to pay rent only on each bed used.
Construction will begin soon and a leasing center will open this summer for the complex that could be available in fall of 2015. http://www.broncosnflofficialproshop.com/Nike-Danny-Trevathan-Jersey.html
Every apartment will come fully furnished with hardwood style floors, granite countertops, flat screen TV sets, stainless steel Duke Ihenacho Authentic Jersey appliances and private baths.
"We know the Waco community well and are confident that with the addition of The Domain at Waco, we will continue to offer Baylor University students a highly desirable community with an environment that will contribute to their success," said Mike McGrath, CEO of Asset Campus Housing, in a prepared statement.
Barrett Kirk, senior vice president of development at Asset Campus Housing, said the company manages other properties in Waco and is familiar with market demands.
"There is a buzz around www.texansofficialproshop.com/Nike-Andre-Johnson-Jersey.html Baylor University now and we're excited about developing what we believe is a needed project," he said in a phone interview.
He said the fact Baylor is investing $260 million to build McLane Stadium on the banks of Lake Brazos at Interstate 35 "didn't hurt in making our decision."
He said the complex will rise southeast of LaSalle Avenue on Malik Jackson Orange Jersey 18 acres near another off campus complex called The Grove, located at 2826 S. University Parks Drive.
"We have not yet set the final lease rates and likely will wait until closer to the Duke Ihenacho Kids Jersey time we begin leasing," Kirk said.
He said residents can take advantage of what he called individual leases, meaning they are responsible only for the rent of individual beds and not the rent of the entire apartment.
At 186 units, the complex will feature 564 beds spread over the apartments and townhouses.
Features of The Domain at Waco will include an 11,000 square foot clubhouse; a resort style pool; an Internet caf; outdoor fire pit; and a pro style sand volleyball court.
Other highlights are a poolside lounge area with hammocks; video gaming center; sports field; tanning and fitness centers; and 24 hour gym.

PNM to add http://www.texansofficialproshop.com/Nike-Arian-Foster-Jersey.html four more solar power plants
Public Service Company of New Mexico plans to build four more solar power plants at a cost of $79 million to help it meet the state standard for renewable energy in 2016. http://www.texansofficialproshop.com/Nike-Brian-Cushing-Jersey.html
The additional 10 megawatt solar power plants will raise the company solar capacity to 107 megawatts, which could provide the power used by 40,000 average J.J. Watt Jersey homes in a year.
believe our proposal will help us provide J.J. Watt Youth Jersey dependable power cost effectively while reducing water use and carbon emissions at power plants, said PNM Planning and Resource Director Pat O said in a statement.
PNM filed its new procurement plant with the Public Regulation Commission on Monday. The PRC will schedule a public hearing and make a decision on the plan later this year.
Starting next year, the state will require 15 percent of electricity to come from renewable sources. PNM says it will be able to meet that requirement with a combination of solar, wind and geothermal energy, along with renewable energy certificates from its customer solar program.
The new solar will help PNM meet the renewable requirements in 2016, but it also will help replace some Jadeveon Clowney Navy Jersey coal fired generation when two of four units at the coal fired San Juan Generating Station are expected to be closed to meet federal haze requirements, the company said.
The new solar projects will create construction jobs for qualified New Mexicans and thousands of dollars of new tax revenue for the counties where they are located. PNM is evaluating multiple sites in the central part of the state.
PNM said the new solar centers will feature polycrystalline silicon solar panels mounted on single axis tracking devices that follow the sun. Polycrystalline silicon (or single crystal silicon) panels feature silicon that Jadeveon Clowney Jersey is cut into wafers and used to make the modules.
