I think everyone should be glad that they themselves don't need or use food stamps.

I have never used them, or needed to.

As far as cutting the federal and state deficits, there are higher priorities, like the reverse-tribute called foreign aid. This is the greatest fraud on the Amercan taxpayers of all, where US tax money is sent overseas to foreign rat holes like Pakistan.

The states waste the most money on expensive programs like in-home care for the disabled. This should be a city and not state program. States should balance their budgets instead, build roads and dams and bridges, and patrol the highways.

Education should not be subsidized either, especially not college. Since when should the taxpayers pay for someone else's college degree?

Food stamps is just a pimple on the buttt of an uglier and bigger problem called out of control federal and state spending.

I hate using it cause people always look an stare. But I go to work everyday and still just cant make it with out some help. Heck I dont even get child support so the way I see it. If I work 40 hours, pay all my own bills, and get a little bit of help from the goverment. I am going to take it. I dont ever buy lobster or tbone steaks but, I have bought name brand food before.
Now see...THAT'S what the system was designed for, to give people a hand UP not a hand OUT. Keep your head up, things WILL get better!! ...I hope...

That's what I think, too, 'Gello. At least that's the way it is in Illinois, I think.

I know that in Pa the rules say you cant get prepared foods meaning food already made for you. But the way around it that all the people that are just scamming and abusing the system do is say they are taking it home. Since the rules only say you cant use ur card for eating at the bussiness. If that makes sence.

Even at the grocery stores, food stamps can't be used to buy prepared foods. I have seen people in the grocery store check out line have to put items back, such as rotisserie chicken.

No prepared foods (meaning cooked, like that rotisserie chicken, frozen pizza is fine), no alcohol, no tobacco.

Red bull, monster, amped, no problem.

At least here anyway.
