Seth Dixon's curator insight, March 24, 2013 7:06 AM

Rhode Island is one of five states in which the number of people getting  help from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP-formerly known as 'food stamps') has more than doubled since 2008. In 2012, 16 percent of its residents received aid from the program. Read the related article.  The article details how Woonsocket's economy is impacted by these monthly fluctuations is disposable income.  Why is Rhode Island one of that states with a doubling participation in this program?  What other spatial patterns to you see?

Cam and Co’s war on poor is a twisted joke

Cam and Co’s war on poor is a twisted joke
.
By AAMER ANWAR
.
COME tomorrow — April Fool’s Day — we will see a series of sickening attacks on the welfare state begin.

David Cameron’s Bedroom Tax will lead to misery and suicide while food stamps will be given to the poorest as emergency cash handouts are scrapped.

Stamps will be usable only for what the Tories deem essential.

The Government claim they want to slash the benefits bill by £10billion by declaring war on ‘scroungers’.

But why not target those responsible for the crisis — the private banks bailed out with £1trillion, 70 per cent of our national income?

The champagne is flowing again as bankers reward themselves with multi-million bonuses, yet for some reason the banks and Government have treated a £1trillion loan as a gift — which the rest of us must pay back through pay cuts and austerity.

My immigrant parents worked hard every day of their lives, obeyed the law, never claimed a penny of benefits.

They believed this to be the best country in the world, where their taxes did not end up in the pockets of dictators but were used to help the sick and vulnerable. If you grew old or couldn’t work you wouldn’t be left to die on the streets like their native Pakistan.

Now, as OAPs with nearly 100 years of paying taxes between them, my parents can no longer be guaranteed security in their old age.

Three decades ago Thatcher began dismantling the welfare state. That process continued under Labour to be followed again by the Tories, each as vicious as the other.

Their project is almost complete — the desperate are turned into ‘charity cases’, ‘workfare’ is the modern day ‘workhouse’ and we are brainwashed into envying those on benefits of £70 a week. Cameron, below, doesn’t care that the majority of those on benefits have already paid taxes while his millionaire pals avoided paying £13billion in taxes last year.

The Coalition knows that slashing the benefits bill will not reduce the deficit, but so what? It’s all about vilification — first the asylum seekers, followed by the immigrants, then roll it out to the vulnerable, disabled, sick, jobless and single parents.

Half of our children live below the poverty line. Thousands won’t take up free meals because of the stigma and bullying.

Backed by a spineless Labour Party, the Tories know that the experiment of food stamps on asylum seekers was a failure.

A black market flourished as shops profiteered from the misery of the destitute.

Today’s food stamps will deny emergency relief to those with ‘no money to heat their homes or fleeing domestic violence’ as a cabinet of millionaires dictate what the poor should be able to buy.

Immigrants will soon be told that their children cannot get emergency operations unless they pay. Such measures, once tested, will I suspect be extended to the poor, so they too can be denied access to universal free healthcare. The Tories are desperate to destroy the NHS in favour of privatisation.

When they have taken the last remnants of a person’s dignity, what do they expect people to do? The Tories say that is no excuse for criminality, but they live in a fantasy land far removed from a life of poverty.

Each law is passed without even so much as a whimper from Labour, as the Tories dream up new ways of wreaking devastation on the poor. There is only so much people can take.

This was never what my parents shed blood, sweat and tears for.
