No my friend I will never need the use food stamps. Do not pretend to know me. You do not. As for how I feel about food stamps...they are given to people who DO NOT need them, and they deny people who do. I'm all for feeding children and the elderly, but I refuse to see big bertha pushing her cart full of ice creams and donut holes, steping up to the cashier and swiping that EBT card. Same goes for the ones that have their designer hand bags and cell phones... It's aparent to me that if you have all those nice things but can't buy food, you need to re evaluate your spending habbits.

You CANNOT purchase hot food with food stamps. The fact fast food resteraunts are becoming so desperate tells me they arent making the buisness GOOD.

I thought food stamps were a necessity not a free breakfast, dinner or lunch at a fast food restaurant! Instead of stopping the purchase of junk food, candy, soda, and other unhealthy purchases they're adding to the list!
Whatever knuckle brain politician came up with this idea, probably votes on any spending increase that passes his or her way.
I would understand allowing toiletries and laundry soap to be added to food stamp purchases, but adding these foods are not only unhealthy but they'll only increase health problems and cause obesity.
