House Republicans could soon make it harder for low-income families to put food on the table. Both chambers of Congress have passed competing farm bills and those differences will need to be resolved before legislation is sent to the president’s desk. But while the Senate’s version keeps the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) mostly intact, the House’s bill would implement more stringent work requirements for those receiving food stamps. Georgetown Law professor David Super, who specializes in public welfare law, says the issue isn’t requiring people to work; it’s harshly punishing them for situations beyond their control. He joins Soledad O’Brien to discuss how millions could be left food insecure.
