The U.S. Army is asking soldiers having a hard time with inflation to sign up for food stamps. Sergeant Major Michael Grinston stated in a special guidance that those serving our country are dealing with an increase in rent, gas, and groceries and that they’re finding it hard to get by. He also suggested they take advantage of the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program.
Republicans and conservatives are not happy with this. Black conservative leader Allen West:
“It really does anger me that the United States Army is recommending that our soldiers go on food stamps — yes, the SNAP program — in order to combat Biden’s inflation disaster. At the same time, we just saw earlier this week, this celebration about the Inflation Reduction Act. This is a high crime and misdemeanor, in my opinion. This was an impeachable offense that the commander in chief of the United States of America would have our soldiers go on food stamps while he is at the same time unconstitutionally saying that he’s gonna provide taxpayer-funded relief.”
