Several GOP lawmakers have proposed a new bill that would require photo identification to use food stamps.
Arguing that taxpayers lose $858 million a year on food stamp fraud, they say the bill will ensure that food stamp benefits actually belong to the person who is using them by requiring retailers to check the photo ID of a person every time they attempt to use the federal program.
One of the co-sponsors, Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-OK), joined Tucker Carlson on "Fox and Friends" this morning to explain his support of the bill.
"I think it's perfectly appropriate when the taxpayers are losing almost a billion dollars a year to fraud in the SNAP program - which is the food stamp program. I think it's perfectly appropriate to require a low hurdle like an ID," Bridenstine said.
