Wow. So many mean people on here. I really hope some of you people all up on your high horses get knocked the f*ck off and end up being poor. Maybe then you'd look at the world a little differently. You need to be humbled. Karma will get ya. Who are you people to judge someone because they have a Link card or because they're poor. Last time I checked God is the only One who can judge people and God don't like ugly. Peace :)

Hey Joe.... The link card is there to help people in need; not demoralize them by picking at every single food choice in their grocery cart. In my 40 plus years of being alive I gratefully received the use of a link card for 6 months to help me get through a hard time. I didn't receive a huge amount but it was a great help to me. I've paid in a decent amount of taxes in my lifetime. Now I'm working again with a good paying job and this year paid out over $9,000 in taxes so far. I believe that makes me a productive member of society. Also I do NOT now and have NEVER worked for the state or federal government. I hope that sometime soon you will have to live through great financial hard ship while trying to provide for a family (hopefully only long enough to remove your smug judgemental attitude). Maybe this Christmas you will be visited by the ghosts of Christmas' past, present and future ;-) Sadly thousands of good hard working people are losing their jobs and homes every day. It would be undeserved for them to seek help only to find Joe standing over their shoulder raging about the bag of Cheetohs in their cart.

I was talking about the people that use the system for their entire life and don't teach their kids work ethic then they do the same thing. Using it to get back on your feet, what it was intended for, is great and I don't have a problem with that

If you are working you shouldn't have a link card. I know you can still be eligible for one, but people need to suck it up. America is broke and people just see link cards as free food without thinking of where it cones from. I got by on minimum wage. Its probably a safe bet that you have a cell phone and Internet at home and maybe even satellite. I'm working to pay for your link card and I net you eat better than me. We need to wake up people!!!! The end is near for America. What will these people do when the government is bankrupt? Loot and steal and riot. We need to take care of it now. Link cards should only be used for those that really need it and should only be used for staples like meat, milk, and veggies. No Oreos and doritos.

Shut up. That simple. Why Worry yourself with this? There is a path this country is headed down and its at a point of no return. Get right with YOUR higher power. Its not really important to get on here and judge. Maybe post something like.... hey.. anyone on here on state aid and need a job? I heard such and such is hiring. But u waste ur time and energy bitching about it. That's not actively doing something positive. But look.... this exact type of thinkn is what has RUINED this country and many others alike. Democrat or Republican.... black or white.... rich or poor..... HUMAN.... GODS CHILDREN..... JUST PEOPLE TRYN TO LIVE!!!!! get along and progress." Evil triumphs...... when good men do nothing"

Welfare is for the non innovative, non intelligent , lazy We need to stop supporting the lazy folks. you should on be able to get it once in your life for a maximum of 1 year . Maybe then we wouldn't have families living on welfare generation after generation ... welfare has stifled our country long enough people get lazy when on It and are not forced to think and innovate to create an income for themselves. then again this system was made to systematically destroy America and it is doing a wonderful job of it . If you get welfare for more then a year in your entire life you are just as bad even worse that any terrorist out there..... you and your kind are doing more to destroy America then anyone else out there ..... get off your fat lazy drug addicted ass and create a life for you and your family instead destroying your life and the lives of countless generation's after you with your dept. creating welfare and government handouts and program's

When jobs are lost the most law abiding and hard working families deserve this. We pay our taxes too and deserve to use this when needed.
Not everybody is as fortunate as some. I agree that people do abuse. This is supplement only for those who truly believe in the dream.

State workers cause taxes to skyrocket and businesses to leave to other states taking jobs w them. It's the illinois way. If you are a state worker or dependent on the government to survive that's a vote for a democrat, and that's their plan for total power. If you like freedom and to make money for yourself without being taxed to death that makes you an evil rich republican in their eyes.

I have a link card so what. I'm a mother and the only income in my home. I don't have internet yes I have a cell phone that costs 45 dollars a month. I bring home 400 dollars every 2 weeks my rent is 350 a month so after I pay that I have 50 to put in my gas tank to last me two weeks until I get my next check where my phone card electric water trash more gas money and insurance come out of. Dobi want to use a link card..no! To I have to have one in order to feed my children..yes!! Quit judging and being hateful to those who work and try their hardest to provide for their families. What about the people out there that are completely capable of getting a job but instead go and get a link card for food and cash and still continue to not look for work. I pay taxes to so get over yourself!

link card can have two sets of money on them. One for food, and some have cash accounts, to be spent anyway one sees fit I guess. Idk never applied for that. I have one to buy food, so that bills can be paid. Yes I work,@ least 5 days a week, all day. And just cause a person needs a liitle help does not mean they can not have a soda. Maybe they have a very short lunch break, and only have time to grab something quick. Caseys does have cold food,(sandwiches) the only kind of food a link card can buy. My work has no frig or microwave. Sometimes I use a lunch cooler. Believe me, I hate using mine, cause I feel people are judging me, and assume I don't work. I use mine at a gas station RARELY, unless I have no money at all. I ask for you not to assume a person with a link card does not work. As long as they are not buying 10 bucks in candy,(which makes me sick to see also!) please don't judge too hard.
you shouldn't feel people are judging you. you should KNOW people are judging you. If you can't make ends meet your job, GET A DIFFERENT JOB!!! if you can't find one in southern Illinois, LEAVE SOUTHERN ILLINOIS!!! I'm sick of paying for your doritos.

no excuses. you accept your 200 dollars per week job instead of packing up and moving to where the opportunities are. But why do that when I can buy groceries for you and the kids that you had no business bringing into the world in your financial condition.

There is the rub. The children. They did not chose to be born. Who can allow a child to go hungry and unprotected? Unfortunately the control of benefits are left in the hands of the parents. Most parents put their childs needs above their own. Parents who continue to smoke $6.00 a pack of cigarettes or more a day, and want everyone to hand out food stamps and free healthcare to them because they have children, make me question their priorities. 6 x 30 =$180.00 month. If both parents smoke,$360.00. Where do they get the money for them? That is smoking 1 pack a day. How much food would that buy?

I make less than 1000 a month. I have had a herniated disk for over a year, a chronic digestive disease, and eye problems. I have a bachelors degree and additional certificates. I have many years experience in my field. I am dependent upon the charity of others for warmth and food in the winter. My old belts have new holes in them. My shirts taken in. Only my coats make me look like the man I used to be.

I will never use a link card. If a man can't earn a afford his own food and shelter, then he should starve. I believe that America is becoming the Nanny state and anyone who accepts handouts from the state is pulling our country down.

There's no national health care. There's no free higher education and public schools are being shut down. Our roads and bridges are literally falling apart. The military is giving surplus weapons and vehicles to our police who have to deal with the increase in riots. Last year our national park service shut down. Our national train service is in decline. We are nearing 20 trillion in debt. Our industrial capabilities are pathetic and out technology lagging behind Europe and the far East.

Why? Because average Americans are pigs. Fat, greedy, stupid, selfish, ungrateful pigs.

I would suggest that the 1% give as much as they can to the poor, but this would simply make the situation worse.

How about you all mind your own damn business. How would any of you like it if everything you did in your life was scrutinized because of how much money you have. Somehow barely surviving is sucking the teat of good Americans like you, but corporations take more of our money in welfare. Its easy to pick on the weak, try picking on the real teat suckers like walstreet, bankers, hedge funds. Disgusting.
