Skip to comments.Amazing Fox News Report on California Beach Bum Living It Up on Food Stamps
Posted on 08/09/2013 3:29:21 PM PDT by kristinn
Fox News just aired a preview of an hour long special tonight on the growth of food stamp usage under Obama.
The preview was reported by John Roberts who filmed and interviewed a 29-year-old California beach bum in La Jolla who gets $200 per month in food stamp benefits with no work requirement.
Just watched this and to say I am outraged is an understatement! Welcome to the New America.
I’ve been to La Jolla, that should buy a small pizza and diet coke.
$200 in La Jolla will probably get you a couple of tofuburgers with or without sprouts and some Starbucks coffee (soy milk optional).
Is La Jolla even a US citizen?
Obama Administration Already Tossed the Food Stamp Work Requirement
The Obama Administration sure is getting defensive about its recent action to waive all work requirements in the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) cash welfare program. But this isnt the first time or the first program in which Obama Administration policy has undermined work requirements.
The welfare reform of 1996 requires that after three months on food stamps, recipients be engaged in some kind of work activity for at least 20 hours a week. Tucked away in the mammoth 2009 so-called stimulus spending bill was the suspension of this requirement for able-bodied adults with no children. The suspension expired on September 30, 2010. His next two budgets then requested that the suspension be extended each year. However, he did not wait for Congress to act on these requests; instead his Department of Agriculture issued waivers to 44 states and the District of Columbia freeing them from implementing the food stamp work requirement.
"Maybe I'll go to the movies......by myself."
Sorry, but no one in SoCal is ‘living it up’ on $200 a month. No one.
Thanks for posting that. As you saw, Roberts included Obama waiving the work rules. Surfer dude applies once a year, no follow-up. He let Fox film in in his native habitat: Nice wheels, drinking beer, smoking cigarettes, buying gourmet food and lobster. This will be sure to get people fired up.
I saw it.
What a sleazeball.
Watch the report tonight on Fox and you’ll learn otherwise.
Nobody is suggesting that it is, just that this is a totally unmerited 200 bucks given by you and me to him.
Well he was buying lobster.
I betcha he's "registered" 15 or 20 times.
I actually don't give a shit whether somebody is "living it up" on Welfare, food stamps, etc.
What I DO GIVE A SHIT ABOUT is the FACT that my earnings get confiscated to hand out to assholes who do NOTHING to earn it, nor do they contribute ANYTHING to society.
The inner-cities are FULL of these parasitic tribes, and America just sits by and lets them live off them endlessly.
Everyone, please calm down about this situation! You are missing the whole context to this story. Mitt Romney has a home in La Jolla. This man’s entitlements are completely justifiable. /Sarcasm off
And the guy isn’t even worried that millions will see this. I am so mad. And “EBT lobster”??? Really???
The $200 is EBT free money so he can buy “EBT lobster” - his description.
How is he doing this with $200 a month?
I'm so tired of them confiscating my pay and doling it out to these users.
