I guess we all seen this coming "Dependence", an yes there is a but, is it all the goverments fault, I dont think it is, maybe 75%, and here is the
but, But what about the big Corporations that except the handouts like SNAP? do you think they lobbied someplace in Washington to make it easier to
get that money (SNAP) from the receipeants?
I guess those that collected the old foodstamps back in the day did not like useing the old paper bills from the Welfare office, becuase everyone knew
when they went shopping what they looked like I know, How, back in the 60"S my parents got divorced and my mother ended up on Welfare until she got
back on her feet, (took a few years but she did) but I remember going to the store and to me at the age of 5 it was embarrising.
So why did they go to the card, to elimate the embarrisment?
Should we give drug test to all those that recieve Welfare? Yes I have to pee in a cup to keep my job so I can support those that don't want to
The article mentione Medicare, correct me if I am wrong but don't all the senaet and congressman and other goverment workers use it for free, maybe
we need to kick them to the curb and make them pay for there own medical coverage like I have to.
These programs are abused and it makes me sick, In the past 30+ years I have never been late on bills, paid for everything myself, never filled for
bankruptcie, but the one year when my wife lost her job because of the economy, we found ourselfs with only 1 income, did not go on welfare or
anything but tried to get reduced rates for the kids meals at school and i was told I made to much. I look at my income and said "REALLY" but then
you see those people on Welfare pull up to the Dollar Tree in a Escalad SUV, get out talking on the latest cell phone and dressed like a million
dollars go into the dollar tree and use a SNAP CARD. "REALLY"
Just goes to show that people will use the system to get the handouts.
