should snap benefits cover pop, candy, ice cream, and any other junk food?

I was recently in Walmart where 2 young women and a young man bought almost 500$ of ice cream, soda, and lunchables with SNAP benefit card. I realized they hadn't been here long enough to find employment, but this is ridiculous! I don't want anyone to be hungry, but I get heart sick when I see an elderly widow put things back on the shelf cause she can't afford it

I hate it when I see them come in and by steaks,chips and dip,pop and a sheet cake so they can throw a party. Some working people can't do this for their own kids but yet us taxpayers foot the bill for them. It makes me sick to see the elderly have to go hungry because their medication cost and social security not getting a raise but welfare people get a 8 percent raise for cost of living. And even though they have no job except having more kids that we pay for, they get 7-10 grand back in income tax for earned income credit. Isn't the magic word there EARNED income credit? That means get a job, get off your lazy asses so us working folks can enjoy the benefits that you rape for free.

Not only do they get a refund but they get vouchers to get new tires on their cars for free and repair vouchers to get there cars fixed for free. So yes they do have the system by the balls
