"I'm going to be in a helluva mess if they cut them back. I don't know what I'd do without them," said Anna McKee of Topeka, of plans in Congress to cut spending on the food stamp program. McKee, an unemployed widow, said she struggles to pay her property taxes and utility bills and cannot afford telephone service. She said she gets about $200 worth of SNAP benefits a month. "If they want to cut back on something, why don't they cut back on that damn war over there," she said. "I don't see any good coming out of that."
