we have a lot of old people that have to decide on whether or not eat or take medication, what I mean by this is they have to decide what they want to pay for food or medication, or electric bill, you have a tremendous amount of grandparents raising their grandchildren and great-grandchildren, the food stamp program is very necessary here, I used to be on food stamps I worked my way off of them, these older people here do not have the choice, and if programs are cut like food stamps, you're hurting more old people in little kids. This is one thing I like you to keep in mind. My grand mother and grandfather raised me that was on disability and we received food stamps,it wasn't much but it helped us out, the reason my grand parents for raising me was because my mother got killed, and an accident, around here there's a lot of that grand parents raising their grand kids,that's his skin and be hurting for this kids and older people, very addicts always find a way, but some people don't have much of a choice,

I have see more children go without food and heat because their dead beat parents sold the voulchers for fuel and their foodstamp cards just to get money to cover their habits whatever they may be. I hate to see a child go hungry, however this same parents will still take advantage of extra help. So be it, take all the stamps OR let social services go out and buy the food for they sure don't do nothing else!!!!

The food stamp program and other programs are abused some much that some of these days the government will cut them out. When they do cut the programs out, alot of good people will have to suffer. I'm for the drug testing for food stamps because there are so many people buying pop with food stamps and selling it for either drugs or money to buy drugs. It's a shame that people have to suffer because other people abuse something.

The same is with the heating programs. People get heating oil vouchers, then get the heating oil then sell it for half price so they can buy drugs. That's what hurts people that are honest, these people that abuse programs.
I agree

with Tyran Rex....food stamps do a lot of good for many people in actual need....let them enforce drug testing & that will eliminate most of the ones that abuse them & keep giving food to the elderly & those raising someone elses kids...Rand Paul is an a-HOLE & the people that voted for him will be sorry sooner or later...probably sooner

The trouble this country is in now, I wouldn't doubt that the food stamp program will be cut back. There's too much money going out and not enough money coming in. Right now, the Social Security is being dismantled bit by bit. The first of these programs to go will be SSI, since no one pays in on it. There's so many people making fun of the tax payer, and the only thing they do is sit around and take drugs. These people sell their food stamps, and their heat vouchers for drugs.

There is a big difference between old people who are unable to work and freeloading dope heads who wont work! I say if you are a freeloading dope head then cut the foodstamps!

The funny thing about it is. The same people who voted him in is the same ones that are going to be crying when they take their free ride away! Most of them just didnt have enough sence not to vote for him. More than likely sold their vote for a pill or something.

There are millions of people that deserve food stamps, but the government is about to put a end on the free loader. The government is cracking down on these people that sell their food stamp cards, and the ones that are buying food stamp cards. They also are cracking down on people that buy groceries, then sell them for drugs and money to buy drugs.

There is more then the law here in the city of Jackson, and in Breathitt County. The government is hearing the complaints of tax paying people and they're going to do something about it. There is too much food stamp abuse and abuse of other government programs. Selling and buying of food stamps, buying food products with food stamps and then reselling it, and the list goes on and on. Also it's people abusing all the government programs. It's about time the government put its foot down on these abusers.

There's something you got to remember; The Democrats and Republicans are getting too many complaints from tax payers not to do something about all this. If you and alot more keep on abusing the government programs, there won't be any freebies for you to get. You think just because the Democrats control things right now that nothing is going to be done about all this abuse? I got news for you, you're very wrong. This country is broke and going more in debt then ever before in the history of this nation. If our nation keeps on the path it's going, there will be an economical collapse this country has ever seen.

The Gross National Debt is over $8 trillion and climbing. More than $1.5 trillion of the debt is owed to the Social Security trust fund and indirectly to those who have paid their FICA taxes.

I work part time and go to college full time. I receive some food stamps. The little bit i do get helps my family out a lot. I think Rand Paul is an idiot, if he can even get this passed it will hurt to many people. I agree with the drug testing ideal. Get the druggies off the food stamps and you would eliminate at least half the people drawing them.
