Neither, eliminating a program can't just begone by the wave of a wand, you know?

Snap has a MUCH bigger budget due to there being so many people on it. However, I would prefer to see a reduction on the number of people that need it by getting them jobs instead. Don't just tell them that next month's check isn't coming.

If I must eliminate one, farm subsidies. If these are family farms I'd prefer reform. If these are big AG Farms, definitely the farm payments

My thought on this is to eliminate the farm subsidies, if I must eliminate something. A better solution would be to reduce SNAP and the subsidies, then offer the farmer equal payment for whatever he gets for his harvest, for selling locally within...

...a certain radius. Also increase SNAP benefits for buying from a local farmer. I'm not for government interfering as much as it obviously does in this particular city, but this would hopefully be a movement toward independence for both groups.

Let's eliminate both, starting with Farm Subsidies!
