Government assistance is a privilege. It's for those who try thier very hardest & still can't makes ends-meat. It's there to help not to be a sole source of income or be a dependant.
I work with the public & it makes me more then mad to see a person pull out the newest phone, wearing a coach bag, dressed to a 't' and pay for their groceies with an EBT Card. And these 'groceries' that they are buying is nothing but junk food & snacks. If you get money to buy food for your children why wouldn't you give them something healthy? Are fruits & veggies not permitted to buy with an EBT Card? As far as I've seen it's just soda & chips. Cookies & candy even.

Does this bother anyone else or is it just me?

You shouldn't judge them....just because they have a new phone or nice purse does not necessarily mean they have a lot of money. I myself have taken designer things to the local Good Will. They could be needing assistance to get out of a slump. We should NOT judge!!!

I can't stand that our government gives away cell phones and pay the bill

I know of a guy that will give his new loaded food stamp card as payment for stuff. That's abuse of the system and that card should be revoked. ALL government aid programs are abused to the point of ridiculous. I'd really like to see what would happen if ALL aid programs were instantly cut off. Think of all the lazy,no good sob's that would actually have to get a dam job.

It's interesting because my husband works for the city (makes very little putting his life on the line daily) I have been ill for sometime. We are raising a teenager and a 2 yr old and would get no assistance at all. I have applied before and am always told that our income does not qualify us. He makes about 8.00 an hour. It just pisses me off that people who truly need a little help can't get it simply because they DO work.

No one is judging. It's simply my opinion. Those who work hard & try to make sure always be able to get a bit of assistance, if needed. However, those who sit on their behinds & draw a check & use government aid to do nothing more then get by. I think its ridicilous. EVERYONE can do something to better their situation some are lazy and choose not to & I think those people should get limited aid.

Hahaha! I GUARANTEE my children, who aren't even school age, have more money in their bank accounts than you! And for the record, i have a job AND an extremely good job at that.....You should consider educating yourself and be sure and take a spelling and grammar class! I probably pay in more taxes than you make in a year! LMAO

I think there should a time limit on any and all government assistance. I understand that people fall on hard times, but I guarantee you that there are more people on assistance programs that abuse it than those who truly need it. It's a sad society that we live in these day :(

Majority of people on welfare and food stamps look at that as their occupation.
They don't want anything more. When a cost of living increase comes along, they look at it as a raise. A full and complete physical should be given to anyone receiving federal aid. If there's no apparent reason other than obesity, then " GET YOUR FAT ASS TO WORK"!!!!
