SNAP recipients come from all walks of life. Ninety-one percent of SNAP recipients live in households with children, an elderly family member, a disabled person who cannot work, or adults who are working. SNAP serves 900,000 veterans each month.
SNAP recipients are poor. The vast majority of SNAP recipients have incomes far below the Federal poverty level. For a family of four, that's just a little over $23,000 per year. Last year, the extra support provided by SNAP prevented 4.7 million Americans, including 2.1 million children, from slipping back into poverty as they worked to get back on their feet.

SNAP recipients play by the rules. Over 99 percent of those receiving SNAP benefits are eligible. Over the last 15 years, USDA has reduced fraud in SNAP from 4 percent to around 1 percent.

SNAP recipients are working. In households where at least one adult is able to work, more than 80 percent work in the year before or after receiving SNAP.

IMHO, people living off the labor of others should be given prepared food.
They should get nothing that can be exchanged for anything else other than prepared food.

" USDA has reduced fraud in SNAP from 4 percent to around 1 percent."

Sure they have. Yep.

Hey, I've got one for you almost as good as that piece of crap you copied out about the SNAP Program...

"If you like your insurance, you can keep your insurance."

There is no one as trustworthy and believable as the Obama Administration, is there?

Obama is about to create a new Cabinet position, "Secretary of Facts and Statistics."

Every thing will be much clearer and pleasing under the new Government bulletins. He is going to hire the former editor of Pravda to be sure that only the truth will be printed.

A local store beng investigated for SNAP fraud by the Feds.

Like I say provde prepared food to those on SNAP. Nothing negotiable, that way the kids will get fed instead of having their food stamps etc converted to cash etc.

Probably the main reason for underachiving blacks, they arn't getting food needed to function in school.

First ... coming from an anti-religious fanatic like you, that is a riot.

Next ... Libs are always charitable with other people's money. Hypocrite!

Last ... next time you are in Wal-Mart, buy yourself some intelligence and send me the bill. I will be happy to pay that one.

I am always fascinated when those the detest religion the most use it as a justification to confiscate more money from the middle class taxpayers and redistribute it to those who did not do anything to earn that money.
