Oh and the program goes way, way back. Even Bush Jr. in 2009 expanded the program -- one of your own fellow Republicans!

Because you are using recycled Rush Limbaugh terms like "Santa Claus" (which you misspelled) I can theorize that you are:
1. a troll
2. lacking in any original thought
3. having fun and being sarcastic
You see, the poor and "uneducated Obama supporters" are not that unlike the "poor, midwest, sheep 'loving', backwards, ignorant, bigoted Republicans".
If you overlay the "red states" with the biggest takers of food stamps you'll soon see a pattern.
I have no further desire to comment on this discussion.
Boy, the trolls and uneducated masses are out in force tonight with their pitchforks, aren't they?
I do have to say that the vast majority of the people who "play the system" in this area are also very, VERY die-hard republicans. They sit at home all day, drawing their government checks that they lied to get and rant and rave about "those dirty democrats" and tell everybody around them they should vote republican
The biggest "republicans" in this area are the exact same people who are popping pills, drawing welfare or faking their way into a disability check.

Wait till I rope you into a convo about our education issue here. We were transferred here a few yrs ago and my kids from the "dumb country school" were almost 2 years ahead of the academically lacking warm butt in the chair for fed bucks school. Ever heard of "participation points"??? If not, oh boy, wait till I tell you!
Honestly, and many people will believe I am trolling, but the best way to beat the people who feel entitled to your paycheck is to quit working.
The system cannot continue without willing participants.
Did Ronald Reagan change history? Well, we all change history in our own way. The more interesting question: What changed Ronald Reagan?
What changed the labor advocate — with enough street cred to get elected president of Hollywood’s actors union — into a labor basher extraordinaire? What turned Reagan the standard-issue New Deal Democrat into the 20th century’s premiere pusher for almost entirely unrestrained “free enterprise”?
The answer? According to Reagan himself, the federal income tax — specifically the over 90 percent top rate on top-bracket income that went into effect during World War II — changed Ronald Reagan. That tax levy absolutely incensed the amiable actor.
At his Hollywood height, actor Ronnie Reagan was making $400,000 per picture. With the top federal tax rate over 90 percent, Reagan used to tell his White House chief of staff Donald Regan, he always chose to “loaf” around rather than make more than two pictures a year.

It is the Santa Clause Gov. That is the big attraction right? Free ice cream if you vote for me.
Am I misunderstanding?

You can afford internet access?
You don't need any free stuff.
26" chrome wheels cost more than internet access yet I see those cars outside our welfare offices all too often.
