On Friday, President Obama added his signature to legislation that will 
cut $8.7 billion in food stamp benefits over the next 10 years, causing 
850,000 households to lose an average of $90 per month. The signing of 
the legislation known as the 2014 Farm Bill occurred at a public event 
in East Lansing, Mich.

The food stamp cuts are one component of a massive omnibus bill which 
also includes billions of dollars in crop insurance and various other 
programs and subsidies involving American agriculture. Before he signed 
the legislation, President Obama praised it as an example of bipartisan 
problem-solving that would help create jobs and move the American 
economy forward.
