The banks were only following policies Clinton and friends put into place.

I blame the banks.
So who was really responsible?
Banks get their money from the federal reserve.
The government created the federal reserve.
The government created Fanny and Freddy.
The politicians supposedly regulated the industry.
Basically the 'bailouts' was the STATE bailing out ITSELF.

I have only ever seen 2 types of food stamp people: The ones who need every last cent and eat it all up and wish they had more for them and their famliy and yep: Druggies who apparantly never eat and sell their food stamps even for .50 cents on the dollar. They'll gladly trade $300 in food stamps for $150 in cash. And unlike this article, you don't have to predate on the poor. They will come and bug you and try and get you to take them to the store and do the trade. It's really gross. But how can Obummer or whoever is next figure out who really needs it and who's the got dang bumbs?
Im not so sure allowing unlicensed vendors at open air markets to accept SNAP without any oversight is really the right way to do that.
And still, the first lady is not elected and should not be given executive authority.
