Refers to the USDA's pathetic practice of reducing your Food Stamps allotment whenever Social Security increases your SSI check due to a cost-of-living increase, largely negating any benefit that your additional food-allotment amount would have gained you.
Zheeesh, if Big Brother actually feels that you need more money to cover basic expenses each month, then basic logic and common sense would state that your SNAP benefits should INCREASE, as well, not be REDUCED!! Sounds like a classic case of "The Lord giveth; his dispiciples taketh away"!
