From what I can see being poor is a pretty easy way of life if your on the government tit. Food stamp card, medical and dental insurance, cell phone, housing, reduced utilities, reduced or free school lunches, free daycare, money for college and big ass tax returns every year for not working.

I like 49% of everyone else work my ass off every day and it hurts to look at the tax deductions on my pay check each month knowing some cow who hasnt worked ever, with 6 kids is standing in line at walmart with a cart full of name brand groceries, catfish, steak, shrimp and other high priced items that is getting these grocerys for free and gonna waddle out to her Cadillac escalade and load those up to go to her HUD funded house.

85 billion in tax cuts. I think the fat needs to be trimmed alright!

Not everyone who receives food stamps is lazy! Some may be! Don't judge everyone who uses a food stamp card. I receive some food stamps and I work my ass off to provide for my children.(And yes I gripe about the cost of food. I get enough food stamps to feed my family well for about a week and I am so thankful for it.)

I don't get food stamps but I don't want kids going without food. Kids that don't get fed don't learn anything in school. I also don't think everyone on food stamps is lazy. Just poor and some think that is a crime anymore.

I'll be all for ending food stamps when corporate welfare is cut out and they start paying their fair share of taxes.

People act like all we have to do is cut out food stamps, medicaid, SS and medicare and all the problems will be solved. We spend far more on wars or subsidies to oil companies than we do these programs. People actually pay into SS.

The same people, mostly republicans, that want all these programs cut is the same people that are against abortion. Why is that? I guess its more humane to let them grow up undernourished or starve to death.

That little rant sounded more like whineing and slobbering than complaining!!!!!!

Heard a statistic on a news show yesterday that for 75% of the families receiving some form government assistance, nationwide, at least 1adult in the family is working full time. I'm sure it's different regionally but I'm sure today a single parent with a couple of kids working full time for minimum wage couldn't possibly pay all their bills. I do believe there is a lot of fraud and I also believe there are community service jobs that those that are not employed could perform for receipt of the entitlements. I also believe they should be willing to go through training if they have no marketable skills if they want money. It should be used as a "lift up" not a hand out.

Food stamps are a necessity because of low wages. People that make low wages and have kids get food stamps.

There is abuse in the system just like anything else. Stop giving many of them the food and teach them how to raise or earn it. Everyone who can should be working. Most people who do receive help have either given into the system or has someone in their family paying. Nothing is free. To whom much is given, much is required. Surely there is something we can all do to help this world to be a better place. Some of us need to realize that there is a better way. Jesus said that we would do greater things than He did. He wasn't here very long, but we need to be finding out what he meant. There is a supernatural way and some of us are beginning to learn a little bit about it. We will see miracles and we will walk by faith. There is nothing impossible to those who truly believe.

I am on food stamps and not proud but also not ashamed either I have four children in my household and NO I do not work!! And here is the reason if I were to go out and get a job yes the state will still help me a little but my paycheck would not make up the difference by no means for example I would have to pay 50$ awesome for daycare they would cut our foodstamps down 200$ hud would lower my assistance about 150$ a month I would no longer be eligible for medicade so iwould have to pay full price for my blood pressure meds and an top off all that you still have to think about gas prices!!!! So all you people out there that thinks a person on assistance has a choice you are wrong! Why would I let my kids be raised by a daycare and work my but off just to be poorer than I am now? If the government would give people incentive to work for example like same assistance they are receiving now for three months just so the person can get ahead a tiny bit or offer more assistance to people that work rather than people that do not it would change things greatly. After reading this and thinking about it why would I work it would hurt me and my family not help them and it is very stupid and seems backwards but it is true I know first hand.

Wow. Those evil people against abortion huh? By your logic maybe the people on food stamps that are struggling should be put out of their misery so the don't have to struggle. Don't give them a choice about it. Just kill them. Babies in the womb don't get the choice and you justify that somehow. Fill in the blank. It's ok to murder a baby in the womb when ________. I wish we didn't have to have welfare. I wish we had more real men that wouldn't leave women alone to raise their children. Real Christian men who would love and fear God and take care of their family. Real Christian men who would sacrifice some of their luxuries and give money and food to help others instead of a corrupt government doing it got us at a mega-inflated cost. Our country has turned from God and so has its citizens. Pray for us all

While I can understand what you're trying to explain, many taxpayers have issue with your type of logic. You do realize that the government isn't footing your bill, it's taxpayers, right?! Why do you feel that I & other hard working taxpayers should pay your way? How old are your children & where is their father? I didn't make those babies, nor should I have to pay for their existence. That's YOUR responsibility, not mine! And if you were in this situation, why did you spit out 4 of them? Since you receive medicaid you do understand that birth control is free, right?! Next what are you doing to prepare for the future? What exactly is your plan? Do you even have one or are you expecting taxpayers to support you forever? How about learning a trade, going to college or votech school? That would be completely free to you too, but there would be an end in sight for not only yourself & your children but also the taxpayers who are footing your bills! Last, why should taxpayers help you get ahead "like for 3 months"? Do you know how I got ahead? Hard work, furthering my education, cutting my spending & working an extra job temporarily!

While I agree with 95% of what you said, I do have one correction. Up until very recently I was an instructor in a Vo-Tech school. It used to be that if you were a single parent you could count on a free ride to school. That has slowly diminished. They may get a full Pell but are no longer guaranteed to get full funding for the rest depending on the cost of the program and what county they live in. They may get a small subsidy for day care and gas but not full coverage any more. It's sad. I saw sooo many people through the years get off of government assistance after just one year of help. Now it's out of reach again for so many people. I believe we would get way more people off assistance if they were told that the only way they would get assistance is to enroll and complete a training program and it would be fully funded then not make it mandatory and partially fund it. Too easy for them to drop the program.

Sorry, but there is a requirement for good stamp recipients that they either be actively looking for employment or enroll in a program like I listed. Of course there are exceptions to the requirement such as children younger than school age in the home. Having said that, they will still pay for the program & daycare, it's just not a requirement that they participate. There are basic education tests, the first one is so easy someone w/a 5th grade education can pass. However, many of these lazy pos purposely fail it so they are deemed with low mentation & nothing more is required of them! Some programs that don't even qualify for pell grants are paid in full by the food stamp program like truck driving school. Many times if a program is eligible for a pell grant 30-50% of the pell grant is applied to the cost & the food stamp program picks up the remainder, letting the recipient use the rest for related expenses such as gas, lunch, etc! If the cost of a program (surgical tech, nursing, etc) exceeds the allotted cap even after using the full pell grant there are other programs to cover the remaining such as vocational rehabilitation, daoc, student loans, scholarships, etc. These folks using welfare as a way of life are quite proficient at finding programs of different types of assistance to keep their bills paid while allowing them to sit on their lazy asses, so don't tell me they couldn't find out about programs to help get themselves out of their current situation!

I understand what you are saying because so many think the government owes them. It doesn't. Yet we do, or at least we owe our own family help and support until they can do better. We are to love our neighbors as ourselves as well. Most of us do pay taxes because we know that we will get something back. You never give something and not receive. It's the receivers who have to eventually give back. To whom much is given, much will be required.

People that have low wages shouldn't be having kids! WTF! I'm only 53 but it wasn't that long ago you planned kids, planned a home, got married first, built a credit rating, paid your own damn bills...and my minimum wage paycheck was $2.65 an hour. Called a starter job where you worked your way up to something better. You can't flip burgers till you are 65 and expect to do all the above. Ever heard of pulling yourself up and being proud? Damn these frickin' cry baby liberals! Ruined this once proud country!
