Maine food stamps would disappear with government shutdown


Congresswoman Chellie Pingree says a government shutdown the end of this month could mean that 230,000 Mainers would lose their food stamps:

"A politically motivated government shutdown would be a real hardship for thousands of Maine families, veterans and seniors who depend on food stamps to help make ends meet each month. It's shameful that some Congressional Republicans are trying to use their opposition to Planned Parenthood to force a government shutdown at the expense of families struggling to put food on the table."
