Future of food stamp program in question

Republican lawmakers on Capitol Hill are proposing to cut the food stamp program by as much as 5%.

According to a new study, those cuts would eliminate more than five million Americans from the supplemental nutrition assistance program

The report comes just as Congress is working to pass a new farm bill which the food stamp program falls under.

The legislation could be up for a vote as early as next month.
