But how will poor folk be able to buy food with it, "return" the food for cash (at ten cents on the dollar) and then use the cash to buy smokes and lottery tickets (I've spent a lot of time in and among the Chaldean grocers of Detroit...it's one of the oldest food stamp scams out there)
I dont like this and after that pork filled budget they just passed it pisses me off. I work very hard for my money but i wont let another American go hungry. Stop feeding illegals BOOM we got money to feed our ppl. No American should go homeless or hungry we are the greatest nation and its a shame we are still putting others before Americans. So much for #MAGA huh no wall no money in that fat budget for a wall im pissed at him and i voted for him proudly voted for him but im not happy right now
How about we cut the budget from the Pentagon, make sure all Veterans have the food they need, and not present another privatizing government services for poorer quality scheme?
people use there food stamp money to buy drugs, how they buy food and then sell it to other, s then use the money to buy drugs
It would also cut the queuing time in most supermarkets..Most days you spend at least half an hour behind someone with three trolleys full of soda,cookies & chips all paid for with their good old food stamps..
Need some kind of change tired of all the people selling their food stamps for $0.50 on the dollar to get cash and don't tell me it doesn't happen I've seen it happen too many times
As badly as the food stamp program needs overhauled, it would be political suicide for Congress to approve this in its original form. Take away the food stamps and the progressive left would cause a civil war.
Yes!!! I have seen food stamp abuse first hand, multiple times, and even had someone try to convince me to go on them because “it’s free!”. I have plenty of other experience stories, I only share a few at a time, but it’s time to get the leeches off!!!! Let’s just say I’ve seen plenty of Party store owners purchasing pop on sale with EBTs...
Blue Apron style is very expensive. It’s always cheaper to cook and prepare your own meals. SNAP works if you limit the items that can be purchased and don’t allow users to get cash. Cut out soda and fast food. The better solution is to make people work for their food stamps.
It's a great idea...adding a bit of stigma to the food stamp program is a good incentive to get off of it.
It would have the added bonus of running most of Detroit's Chalden-owned grocers into the ground (seriously, never go grocery shopping in Detroit...it's third world conditions.)
