A very long article about food stamp use. Very depressing and rather heart wrenching until you arrive at this:

"For the past three years, the OrtizesÂ’ lives had unfolded in a series of exhausting, fractional decisions. Was it better to eat the string cheese now or to save it? To buy milk for $3.80 nearby or for $3.10 across town? Was it better to pay down the $600 they owed the landlord, or the $110 they owed for their cellphones, or the $75 they owed the tattoo parlor, or the $840 they owed the electric company?"

Now, in case you missed it, let me point out what sets taxpayers off:

"... or the $75 they owed the tattoo parlor,..."

Yes, the tattoo parlor. They actually make payments to the tattoo parlor while their kids are going hungry and we're paying for it.

I saw a lot of this in my former hometown. People living off their parents and the system but still have dope money, smart phones and covered in tattoos. I hated to move away, a lot of good memories there, but it was starting to get sickening.

Bet the kids appreciate that as much as the taxpayers do.

The worst part is people like that putting their own wants ahead of feeding their kids.
