Your point is right on, We are giving out more in food stamps to more people than ever
and we need to put an end to how easy 0dumbo has made it
food stamp data
Shut down the food stamp program. That would cut almost 1/10th of the yearly deficit. But don’t forget the bipartisan efforts to continue spending increases on public/government education, social services, planning offices, building inspectors, animal worship laws, environmentalist laws, enforcement of feminist laws against men and families, enforcement of laws against heterosexual people, all of those who collect pay without properly doing their jobs, preventing new competition in business and so on.
And before the false allegations are posted, no! I don’t receive food stamps or any other welfare. But many thousands of perverts, thieves and other crooks are sucking big, fat incomes from debt while producing nothing but trouble.
