Food Stamps, Fairness and Too Much of a Good Thing
At a certain point, enough is enough. We can't give everything away free.

With regard to William Galston's "In Defense of Food Stamps" (Politics & Ideas, Nov. 6): I could not disagree more. Food stamps were used by one in 50 Americans in the 1970s, and now we are at one in seven. Categorical eligibility effectively wiped out the program's old asset test, meaning you can have tens of thousands of dollars in assets and still qualify. Additionally, the Obama stimulus removed the work requirement. With the requirement removed, many young, single, able-bodied people signed up for food stamps. EBT cards have removed the stigma; you can now even use them at restaurants (see photo with article). At a certain point, enough is enough. We can't give everything away free.
