AOC Ridiculed For Claiming Her Family Would Have ‘Starved’ Under New Trump Food Stamp Rule

By: - December 6, 2019

AOC was ridiculed online when she took to Twitter to suggest that her family would have likely starved when she was younger under the new welfare rules announced by the Trump administration.

Under the current law, work-eligible adults without dependents under the age of 50 can only get three months of food stamps over a three-year period if they don’t meet a work requirement of 20 hours per week. The new rule restricts states’ ability to exempt work-eligible people from the work requirements via waivers.

An outraged AOC took to  Twitter to attack the new rule, claiming that her family relied on food stamps after her father died and how this rule would have left them starving.

“If this happened then, we might’ve just starved,” the congresswoman tweeted. “Now, many people will. It’s shameful how the GOP works overtime to create freebies for the rich while dissolving lifelines of those who need it most. ”

“I have the words now. 1. You didn’t read the regulations issued. I read them. 2. You’re too lazy or stupid to be in your job. Go back to mixology.”

“No one is gonna starve you goon. I was extremely poor and never took food stamps, my family helped, my friends helped. I worked and so did everyone else. Inner cities need JOB support not more FREE things to succeed.”

“This woman is such a liar & fraud. She knows full well that Trump’s new food stamps policy only applies to people between the ages of 18 & 49 who are childless and not disabled. So it wouldn’t have affected her sob sorry. She preys on the ignorant to stir up hatred & division”

“Cult-building by by exaggeration and misinformation… Indoctrination 101…like a boss!”

“Yet another swing and a miss for you missy. Attachment for your convenience…but you have to read it to know what’s in it”

“The rule applies to able-bodied adults between the ages of 18 and 49 who do not have dependents. The rule wouldn’t apply to parents with minor children, the elderly, or disabled people.”

“If they are on food stamps and able to work they should. My family was poor growing up but we worked. We had little box gardens to grow our own vegetables too. A lot of people just don’t want to work. Why don’t you donate your salary to charity like Trump does to help the poor?”
