I realize some people need assistance, but there was a woman and walmart that said her food stamps did not cover dog food so she was buying steak to feed her dog!

yes. heard the same conversation in Sav-a-lot by woman who explained to her boyfriend that she was buying all the tuna to feed her cat since EBT wouldnt pay for cat food.

We need to shut down all these entitlement programs and start over.

Social Security Disability fund is bankrupt in 2016. that's just 4 years away with 3 million more people applying THIS YEAR.

5.4 million joined under Obama,and up 53% in 10 years.

Wow just no shame these days and takin our tax dollars for granted...Where the hell is the pride these days...It sucks that people that work end up payin for the scum that simply DONT wanna work... This town is infested with them all over!!!!!! Its easy to pick them out as well.

Example #1 Family of 5 cramped in 3 bedroom apartment... Parents never leave there...Both CAN work but would rather draw...Been like this for years... Now if I was one of the parents Id actually feel like Sh@t and ashamed to even be drawing or using fook stamps and making my family live in a place like that... Couped up and not much room WTF what you gonna say to the kids when they grow up and see their parents doing nothing but living like hobbits and stuffin their face all day long? Even these folks that move into a trailer park are riduclous..Always havin to be alert cuz their trailer aint tuff enuf and easy to get tossed across town whenever theres a torando warning....No pride no digitiy at all fine with living in trash and being wiggers and leeching off the system...Cmon get off your ass and work. Stop making america look bad!!!! Have some damn pride work towards better living conditions at LEAST if we're payin for your food!!!!!!!!!!

It is amazing they fill up their carts and hand that card with the flag on it and don't pay a dime. I don't go shopping on the first of every month any more, made me sick. Some of these pigs got 4 kid hanging on the cart like there at an amusement park, no pride. You can't afford your child stop having more kids. I see young men have these flag cards makes me sick--------------- GET A JOB.

Lol even working men and college students get fookstamps.... Proably end up spending it all at the tmart or one of these bodegas stations even tho its always overpriced there they dont care about savings at all they just go hit the aisle and gleefully fill up the cart...Yeah its sooo digusting on the first day of the month at Walmart... Great day to snap pics for people of walmart .com tho ;-) Yeah that red flag card is a BIG give off!

People live this way because they can live better than most of us who do struggle to pay our bills.
My sister is a single mother of one. Makes $8.75 an hour and draws $450.00 in Foodstamps. My husband and I both work, at your average paying job , have one child , and struggle to stay on a budget of $70.00 a week for groceries. Sometimes we juggle our bills just to make ends meet..., and Heaven forbid a medical emergency and have drs collecting their money breathing down your back!Its not fair, but the gov seems to think it is. I think if gov wouldnt allow junk food such as chips, cookies, sodas, ice cream, etc. to be bought with FS that people could survive on a lot less. Its sad that my child doesnt get those "luxury" treats all the time just because they add up to so much. We drink the kool aid, make homemade cookies, and cook from scratch rather than all the prepackaged food. Its no wonder there is so much obesity among children. Michelle Oboma preaches eat healthy yet the gov wont teach families how. I was taught to make my on way no matter what the job was or how little it may pay. You sometimes just do what you have to , like it or not , to provide for your family. I can see why so many people are on FS. The government makes it easy and enticing. Where theres a will, theres a way. Now a days not many have the will.

I think EVERYONE ought to have a fs card. Its so easy for them to rack up food supplies since they also get everything TAX Free with that card meanwhile folks like you struggle to keep the food budget at 70 is just hard...Heaven forbid you have more kids and end up spending more than just 70 a week on food and end up being unable to pay your other bills just cause you went over on the food budget...Ive heard of people being turned down for fs just because they make 1 dollar too much...Its riduclous and not really HELPING the people that actually TRY AND WORK to make ends meet... Only the people that are dirt poor or just refuse to WORK get it easy as pie.

Need to abolish this food stamp program, it is so abused!! If people who have a bunch of kids and can't feed them, then for God's sake STOP having kids. Its that simple!!

Those are the people who SHOULD get them since they're paying into the system (or will be) and not simply leaching from it unlike not Big Bubba, the high school dropout who hasn't worked a day in his life because of the gout in his big toe.

Lol are you kidding me...if you can afford to go to college you certainly can afford your own food...
Workers sure as long as their wages are actually not good... Etc.. no $10.+ hourly workers... Which I already know someone that makes that much and actually has a fs card... Must be nice...Now why dont we all just take our tax dollars back out of the system lets all go in and lie and cheat our way to a free $450. Card each month?

Those who have children and can't provide for them should be sterilized and their existing children taken from their homes.

Except that nobody who wasn't fortunate enough to be born in the money can afford college without financial aid today. When I graduated from college in the 70's, I was able to pay for it out of pocket and with no help from scholarships. That isn't possible now, especially with the insane prices being charged for textbooks.

Thats excatly what financial aid is for.... It couldn't be too much to feed themselves while theyre in college theyre what? Livin by themselves supporting themselves no other mouths to feed. Really what the hell does a student like that need foodstamps for!!!!??? Of course these that are parents and returning to school and tryin to better themselves thats cool but really students fresh out of high school headed towards college f#ck that.... Time to learn resposiblity ya'll in the real world now...Or are you ok with pampering this generation of kids with entitlement programs etc...??? Yeah brillant they'll then proably slack off and drop out after they see how reabile the foodstamp proggy is and just dont have the will to finish school cause they were sooo busy the other night stuffin their faces with junk food and crap.
