So that is $606 per year for something giving maximum benefits of roughly $2,000 per year for an adult. So, unless I'm going to be on food stamps about half the time, that is a bad deal. No thanks to that one to. I'll chose the risk of starving to death instead. But, you don't want me to have that option, right?
and on food stamps, well sometimes I go through very slow months out of the year, and I apply for food stamps and get them for no more than 6 months. that $150/month in benefits helps immensely. and I pay into it, so why not? why wouldn't you take advantage of the system put in place?
but honestly, I'd rather see programs showing people how to grow their own food.. wouldn't that be novel?
