To me this is a double edge sword.
I don't think we would of need to cut the food stamp (SNAP) program if there were not so many free loaders (California Surfer comes to mind) misusing
The SNAP program has its merits, but many fall downs as well, Like why are we using SNAP money to fund the National School Lunch program that many
areas are dropping because of cost.
Why are we not looking at all those that come to this country get on Welfare, purchase goods and ship them back to were they originally came from (60
Minutes did a report on this in NY)
When my wife was working for the Dollar Tree, she seen people pull up in a brand new Escalade, get out dressed in their high end designer cloths,
talking on their expensive phones, come in and buy items at the dollar tree and use a SNAP card, this just don't seem right at all, I think they can
afford not to have it. like Maybe cut back on the luxury items
I understand Welfare, I grew up on it in the 60" & 70's, Family of 5 and no father, my mother would go to work but still need help. we never had
that kind of stuff, but she managed.
What the Welfare program was is not the same as it is today, today its just a free hand out for everyone and that is the problem, those that really
need the help are the ones that are getting hurt, those that are just free loaders are hurting the system.
I have seen too many people abuse the system, instead of complain about it lets do something about it, like I have done a few times. If you see or
know of someone that is abusing the system use the link below.
Lets protect those that really need it and get those off of it that are just freeloaders
