1 out of every 7 Americans are now on Food Stamps/EBT/SNAP programs and the comment from the supposed "Mr. Wise" above about people get these benefits because they qualify is not truthful or valid. Sure, most people getting them probably do meet the criteria but there's
rampant, out of hand fraud draining that system and it's being committed by people that do NOT meet the requirements and so they lie or misrepresent their situations to garner undue benefits. This is where my opposition to the programs lie, the fact there is
not enough screening and checks made to verify/validate people's information
to begin with so that only those that "deserve" benefits actually obtain them.

As Kellerman stated above, Ohio is apparently undertaking a suggestion I made
years ago and that is to require people that receive EBT/SNAP, etc. to "trade"
for them with volunteering, training others or themselves, or performing work
of some type for the State/Federal Gov't. If nothing else, out roads, bridges,
and infrastructure sure need maintenance or updating. NO FREE RIDES.

Or they will let someone else without a card use their card to buy groceries and charge them 50 cents on the dollar. I know that goes on all the time.

My nephew's worthless girlfriend asked my sister to borrow money for food since she 'had' to sell her foodstamps to pay the utility bills. The doper thinks we are stupid, I guess. Her utilities are paid as well as her tuition, along with the other rewards she thinks she is owed for having a child.

I would like to see every county donate a plot of land to the able-bodied foodstamp recipients and take the foodstamps from a select group all together. They might not be so eager to pop out babies if 'they' have to provide for them.

I saw an elderly black gentleman's interview on a Louisville news station about the foodstamp cuts. He said, "I am democrat, but I have to agree with the Republicans on this one." He ran a private taxi service as his second job and was disgusted with the young and lazy.

A grocery store manager said he watches people come in and buy 30-40 gallons of milk and pay with foodstamps. Then they pull out a wad of money big enough to choke a horse to pay for non food items.

A previous poster said the SSI program would be good place to make cuts. I agree!

No one wants to see the elderly, veterans, or especially children go without food. But everyone has to admit there is rampant fraud going on. A better solution would be to use a system like WIC. Instead of a EBT card, you would get a list of items you could get such as canned food, frozen food, milk, fruit, laundry detergent, meats, etc. No more buying 20 gallons of milk, 25 cases of pop, Red Bull, and so on. There would still probably be fraud, but if families had a list of specific groceries and the amounts of each item they could get, that may help with the abuse and honest people would get the food they needed for the month. BTW, You noticed I did say HONEST people. It's only the ones who are abusing the system,(buying those 25 cases of pop to resale for cash for pills)that scream and yell when lawmakers want to re-vamp the food stamp system. When in fact, the parents are the very ones that are taking the food out of their own children's mouth!!

I don't know how the determination is made who has to do some sort of volunteer work to get their food stamps; but I do know two young single women who have to do volunteer work to get their food stamps here in Pikeville.

Looks like some ppl may have to learn to cook instead of loading up on frozen foods and soda., it pisses me off when I am in the ck out and see the person in front of me buying better food than I can afford then swip the food card. Do you ppl really need 10 cases of soda.
Just my 2cents
That came to my mind the other day while in Wally World. You could tell the people that worked and those who didn't. Just look at the amount of groceries in their cart.

The ones that work normally have less because we have to budget our money. The cheese eaters pile it on to a graveyard hump without worry. They spare no expense. Monster energy, steaks and lobster even. Must be nice.

I agree with you. I did my Master's thesis on the epidemic of out of wedlock births in this country and the effect it has not only economically, but on society as a whole. Did you know when a child is raised on welfare it can actually lower their IQ? The differences between children born out of wedlock and children born to married parents are startling! Even children born to poor married parents have a much higher rate of success when it comes to education and financial stability as adults. They are much less likely to abuse drugs, drop out of school, become teenage parents, and end up incarcerated. Over 85% of children born out of wedlock are born on Medicaid...AKA, the tax payers dime...and "sinlge mothers" are rewarded for their poor choices. They receive almost 80% of all welfare! They also 14 times more likely to receive financial aid to pay for college(not student loans) than a student who made the right choice and did not get pregnant out of wedlock.
That's because being married (man and woman) is God's plan. God is being excluded in almost everything except the church.(Sometimes there too) Look at how upside down our country is now because of his unwanted presence. It's simple yet people make it so complicated.

And I think that is a good idea, and "even trade" if you will that should be the standard everywhere in my opinion. No "free rides" to people that border a sort of "grey area" that could easily volunteer, learn skills or pursue some type of trade education, or go to work for the State/Fed. Gov't. whatever on some type of work-for-benefits type program somehow. I'll be 100% honest here, I know quite a few people that receive EBT and 8 out of 10 of them provided some type of fraudulent info to obtain them..even if it was something as minor as lying about how many people live in their household or the fact they have some type of other income off the books/under the table.

Just as I said before and others have as well, no one wants to see children, single Mothers, Senior Citizens or anyone else deserving going hungry and doing without but common sense tells us that Entitlement Programs have a tendency to be exploited and abused with so much rampant fraud that it's only smart to observe applicants closely with scrutiny and to investigate their information deeper to prevent misuse and waste. Our Government is a mindless, wasteful behemoth of such ignorant excess that we MUST begin
to make cuts and implement belt-tightening reformations wherever we can.
