Private charity is no guarantee the poor will have food in their stomach. If it was, there'd be no need for food stamps.
Secondly, let's say Republicans succeed is eliminating food stamps, what do you think is going to happen? Riots.
Republicans can talk about elminating food stamps all they want but guaranteed they never will actually do that. Are you kidding? There's be nationwide riots if that ever happened. Roosevelt was absolutely correct when he said if Republicans ever tried to eliminate social/entitlement programs, their party would no longer exist.
Food stamps are here to stay. Just that more jobs need to be created and thus create less dependence on food stamps.
