If your healthy & able to work then work & pay for your food without getting any help if your disabled & can't work thats another story there's nothing wrong with taking food stamps some people are just lazy & decide to rip off the government then government cries with the economy is low
Now days you have to be employed or going to school to qualify for benefits. So if you are working than you also pay into it with the taxes taken out of your check(s) as well. The homeless can not receive them because they dont have an address...now that is ridiculous...
Food Stamps were made for, and should be for, people in dire need. There is nothing wrong with being "at the end of your rope" and needing to feed your family. What concerns some is when they are abused. Meaning illegals, popping out 8 kids, getting welfare, food stamps, etc. so they can stay in the US. Or, people being lazy who are perfectly able to get a job, legally and slum around not even trying. If used properly, there isn't any problem. If abused, it hurts us all.
Nothing is wrong with Food Stamps, and without that program we'd have even far fewer farmers than we would have without them. First and foremost, Food Stamps is a farm commodity price support program.
Even if nobody signed up to get Food Stamps, the government would still be buying farm commodities so that farmers don't abandon farms due to costs of producing being greater than the price they get for their produce on the market.
Without Food Stamps we would double the number of destitute people as you would add on the number of starving farmers to the number of starving jobless, infirm, handicapped, children and elderly.
just a sign of the times. just a way to feed the family right? because you cant work right? or work but dont make more then min wage because you dropped out of school right? and dont have a partner or family to help durning this hard and most difficulte span of life..right ? life is all about focus for the right look into power beyond measure....
Nothing if u truly r needy or un or underemployed, I'm mostly conservative n hate that my family has needed welfare assistance but I work as much as I can and pay taxes, lying and abuse of this great aid we can do for legit people is disgusting, some groups of people abuse welfare as an inherited way of life, they r a drain on society and thank them for high taxes n difficulty for cruelly needy,
I'm on FS there is nothing wrong at all its only how you feel about it. I was ashamed at first now I call it EBT and slide my card. I search all the time for work and fill out apps and if the gov doesn't make jobs but wants to still help that wont keep me from feeding my son. They need to quit outsourcing all our jobs and and then paying for those who don't have them, they need to make jobs here at home. Wal Mart has everything you need but they are not cheap AT ALL anymore and they outsource all their goods and all the profits go to one mega family. That is bleeding America dry. Not people who need food. Theres nothing wrong with it. There is something wrong with people who can work and take SSI for 40 years however.
