State officials say the new limits will save public money and prevent fraud. Critics say the test will disqualify thousands of low income families from getting the help they need.

If they really want to save money...how about cutting subsidies and tax breaks to the true welfare queens....corporations making huge profits!! They should not still be getting subsidies from the govt, however, all of our citizens should have the right to food in the house

I never had a $4000 car in my life. I think the asset limit is fair. Anybody can buy tons of nice stuff on credit and then cry poor because their monthly bills are more than their income. That doesn't make them poor. I think it makes them scam artists. They should sell their fancy new cars and buy a $500 transportation vehicle and buy their clothes at Goodwill like REAL poor people do. Then they probably wouldn't "need" foodstamps anyway.
