What new USDA restrictions mean for food stamp recipients

Clip: 12/21/2018 | 4m 51s

After new restrictions on federal food stamps didn't make it into the farm bill, the USDA is implementing them instead. Roughly 755,000 Americans may feel the impact of the changes, which limit states' ability to grant work requirement waivers in areas with high unemployment. The Washington Post’s Jeff Stein joins William Brangham to explain who the affected populations are and what comes next.
