They should make it just like WIC. You can only purchase certain foods at certain times. This would cut back on obesity and selling food or letting other people use their card. I see it all the time. People let others use their card and they get cash. Or they have a cart full of junk food and weigh 350lbs. They also need to make it to where if you are able bodied to work, you have to. It should not enable people to live a lifestyle on welfare. Getting rid of the Democrats who have the mindset that you take away from the ones who work and give to the ones that don't work will also be a huge help.
