Just curious if there is any fast food places or restaurants that takes ebt. Personally I don't think its really a bad thing because say you are out and about and your child gets hungry and you can't get home to prepare a meal. Say your at the doctors and they get hungry. What are you supposed to do? Let them starve? Also I don't know anyone that has an oven readily available for people who need to prepare food for their kids while out and about

So not only do you want to live off the government, you're too lazy to actually go home and cook a meal with the free food we provide you by working our asses off?

And I have heard people talk about going to the doctor with body aches and getting a referral for weekly massages and aroma therapy! Pathetic!

This is what we've become...a society of gimme, gimme, gimme where nobody has to work hard for what they get anymore.

I get food stamps and am embarrassed to use them because i worry what people think of me. However, for the last 20 years my husband and I have worked our tails off never receiving any form of public assistance until we got laid off within 3 months of each other. I think being able to use them at fast food restaurants is ludicrous. I think you shouldnt even be able to buy sugar laden soda on food stamps. I feel like such a failure sometimes even though we paid our fair share all our lives into the system. I hope people dont judge me when i use mine. It makes me feel so useless.

You aren't the people that are disrespecting and taking advantage of the system. You did what you were supposed to and fell on a hard time. Big difference from these people that have never worked, don't plan on working, and expect handouts. It really blows my mind that they now want to be able to fly through Burger King instead of making family meals like it's intended.

Amen, the program is there as a safety net for hard working people like you. Its a shame others see it as a way of life and a system to sponge off of and attempt to defraud.

Garnet you USE YOUR FOODSTAMPS PROUDLY, you earned them and are using them right now for all the right reasons.

Seriously if they allow food stamps to be used at BK, McD's, Krystals, Taco Bell.... Can you imagine what backlash effect this is going to have on the healthcare we provide these moochers. Most are already borderline obese.

You are one of those people that truly needs this service, and no question, you'll rise again and not abuse the system.
I don't care for my tax dollars to pay for these situations, it's the lazy people that lean on the system for EVERYTHING and ALWAYS.
You can notice people trying to cost cut using the EBT card, and those that are racking up on the finest.
I will not lie, sometimes I get very angry, because the base of my worries is food. With a family of four, we fall into 20-24 a year range. It's difficult to spread the money even with two children, but we work enough not to fall into assistance.
I can't imagine not having to worry about money for food, plus having the capabilities to buy whatever.
wow fact

I think she wants us to put ovens on every corner now just in case her kids cry "i'm hungry".... I have a friend that works for a local bank she got a woman $15,000 of gov't assistance to put down on a brand new home, then 3 months into her new mortgage the lady threatened her and cussed her out because they cut her food stamps after finding out she had an asset. Needless to say it's in forclosure.... She only qualified because she was getting 1000.00 a mo for 2 kids, one was in a boys home and one lived with the grandma... FLEECING OF AMERICA.
