Some recipients do buy food for their kids, so in essence, it will be the kids who go hungry. People need to stop and think before they pop off at the mouth about every issue.
Why not go after other issues where your tax money goes - such as foreign aid to countries who hate us? There are a list of them, yet people want to bi*** about food stamps - as if they want to control what others can and can’t do. Last time I checked that was the mantra of the left.
Yes, there is fraud with the food stamp program, but there is with every program - yet so many on here rant and rave over this. Could it be that you resent helping others who are less fortunate? If so, then you really aren’t compassionate people. We’ve never had a say where our tax dollars go and yet they go to Planned Parenthood as well.
In a utopic world, there would be plenty for everyone - jobs, food, houses, cars, etc, but we don’t live in a perfect world, do we? How many on here actually are willing to sustain a family of four with food for 3 or more years? Some of you may help out at Christmas time, but other than that - nada! People need to eat all year round. So go ahead and throw your rotten tomatoes at me - I’ve been in the trenches and have seen it all -and many families need the help they receive from the food stamps - and those I’ve met aren’t milking the system - they have lost their jobs - gone through a divorce and have kids to feed and clothe and keep a roof over their heads.
Over and out~
not opposed to people getting food stamps to “feed their kids”
opposed to food stamps being used to buy junk food and other luxuries and being accepted at race tracks and the like
we all know that abuse is a problem, we have all seen it, and it is not hard to fix
a govt that can dictate what your kid gets served for lunch can dictate what healthy foods food stamps can buy. we can all break the code on moochelle Obama’s fixation on obesity - it aint rich white people
What I resent are the generations of wasted lives who do nothing for a living and who I ‘get’ to help take care of because the government has taught them it is easier to do nothing than it is to work. Food stamps are a huge area of fraud and waste. What I suggested was random drug testing for food stamp recipients. I have had to do such for places where I was gainfully employed. Those who are ungainfully receiving public dollars should have no problem with it. And now that you mention it, why should I ‘have to’ take care of someone else’s children? The Lord loves a cheerful giver, not someone coerced at the end of an IRS audit. I prefer to help people I know, not strangers who may or may not be doing anything decent with the money they receive.
