The massive increase of people on food stamps in the past five years has created many more problems.<quoted text>
Since you didn't have an answer to the SNAP waste, fraud, and abuse question I found this for you:
Its ironic that in this post you're questioning whether States could do a better job when the report points to States' failure to properly identify and treat waste, fraud, and abuse.
The 10 states that were reviewed in this report were still reported to have a "low rate of anomalies" and "a notable achievement in the states making significant progress".
If abuse and fraud can be found in 10 states "given the size and complexity of SNAP", how much more could be found nationwide?
It also pointed out that "SNAP participation has reached record levels".
That's the problem, isn't it?
It's only logical that states can keep abuse and fraud down much more efficiently. Let them determine the requirements based on the needs of the citizens in their own state and enforce them.
