” from SNAP. We should be getting height and weight measurements on all applicants for this——”
Aaaah no -—that seems to be a bit over-the-top for me.
I certainly get your point but the government asking for height and weight? Nope.
Anyone asking for government freebie handouts SHOULD meet certain requirements.
If they don’t want intrusion, then don’t take the handouts.
Look at you drivers licence, theyve already asked! Its impossible to know whether the program is meeting its offfial goals (as opposed to the unofficial one of buyingthe Democrats the votes of lazy coach potatoes without such measurements. And they should be periodically repeated and analyzed to show whether the alleged malnutrition is improving. And dont give me no libertarian jive about not letting the feds have such personal information. Anyone claiming such is either pushing to ending the entire program as unconstitutional at the federal level, as would Davey Crockett, or is a hypocrite. Id rather devolve such programs to state, local, or ideally private charity levels, but so long as liberal ideals, backed by raw liberal political power are forcing me to spend my tax dollars, the liberals running the program should be held to those ideals.
