City politicians will speak out against the Republicans, who decided to eradicate the food stamps for NY’s commoners. The city council and Mayor Blasio are imposing some rules by refusing access to “Walmart for the poor’s”, which is one of the most useful anti poverty programs for the less fortunate people. When Michael Bloomberg was the mayor, he backed Walmart’s hard work to open a store in NY but officials and union opposed and disapproved the move, and once Blasio became the mayor, Walmart finally gave up the effort.

Mayor Blasio strongly opposed against the program saying that Walmart do not belong in NY City, whereas Walmart helped the poor families to save up to $2,300 per year. City politicians do not understand the idea to call of the food stamp which offers such benefits.

Though there were rumors about Walmart’s alleged exploitation of its workers nobody discouraged the people from other cities to join Walmart whenever there were new openings.
People not in favor of Walmart complains how the government is increasing the burden on tax payers, whereas subsidies on medical is accessible for lower income people in other industries, which is yet another problem for Walmart workers.

Shutting down the Walmart food stamps is though unreasonable, but city council and the mayor still have not convinced the public to do so. In 2015, New Yorkers preferred Walmart in a poll which asked whether Walmart be allowed to continue. Though this didn’t pay any heed to mayor and his allies as the buyers pay high prices, some portion of their money will belong to the campaign contributions.
