That average monthly benefit of $133.24 for 44.199 million people will help with the purchase of one third of a very edible iPad. Food stamp participation chart presented without further commentary.
Great news which means Obama is a shoe-in for re-election.
You know, mentioning food stamps is racist or something, according to David Gregory.
Was this unexpected????
Yep, ol Newt was just making this stuff up calling baraq the food stamp president.
Obviously “Bush’s” fault. Just look at the graph.
I think anyone who receives welfare should not be allowed to have cell phones.
Cell phones are frequently cheaper to have than land line phones anymore.
Do you think they shouldn’t have electricity or running water too?
This was a GOAL.
Leftists aren’t honest about their goals,
because those goals are abhorrent to decent people.
The same people who get food stamps are the same ones whose kids are fed at school for free. And some schools send home backpacks full of food for the weekend.
If the schools now send food home with kids, then why do we double dip and give them food stamps too?
Just anecdotal evidence, some of these people with food stamps drive some nice cars, in addition to having bling and cell phones.
If subsidizing food for people just allows them to spend the money they have on other stuff, is that really a good expenditure of public funds?
We don’t want people to go hungry, but we also shouldn’t be enabling them not to work or enabling them to have a better living standard than those who do work for a living.
At the food bank, you’ll often see those “dropping off” have much older/humbler cars than those “picking up”.
I’m fine with cell phones. Just turn off the cable or satellite, please.
Take their shoes too.
I think anyone who receives welfare should not be allowed to vote.
“We dont want people to go hungry, but we also shouldnt be enabling them not to work or enabling them to have a better living standard than those who do work for a living.”
We’ve lost our way. There was a time when being on public assistance wasn’t a good thing. People felt embarrassed to be in that situation. And public assistance wasn’t meant as a way of life, it was meant as a means to avoid starvation until you could get back on your feet.
Now, people view welfare as “getting theirs”. And there are plenty of people who live good lives, take nice vacations, drive nice cars, live in good homes, and are on welfare.
Why, this is unexpected news.
But what if they want to watch HBO? Isn’t having HBO a civil right nowadays?
They should put Obama’s portrait on the food stamp.
As with all technology it's how it's used that makes the
difference. I am currently unemployed and have signed up
with several on line job search engines that email the latest
jobs posted to me. My Droid has been a real asset.
