Food stamps become a way of life for many in the US and the way of life is passed to the next generation. I have seen this so many times. No incentive for some to ever move beyond this because it is made easy for them.

================================================================

It comes down dependency...the more people that are dependent on "big brother' means more votes for the Democrats. The Republicans are the party of business and its private sector jobs that get people off the dependency train that the Democrats depend on for votes.

The private sector has to provide jobs paying a living wage so the poor in our Nation can get off Food Stamps. Until that day comes let's not begrudge those in need of a meal to eat. I know that some take advantage but a hungry child doesn't understand political end fighting, they just know they are hungry. It is a shame when some would rather give the 1% a fat tax break than feed the hungry among us. Where did the Christmas spirit go?

My question is how many Walmart employees are on food stamps. THAT would tell us something.

I was the one that requested a decent and  non partisan discussion regarding this thread.  I found it very interesting that so many Americans were on Food Stamps when the unemployment  was so low.

 I read many of the explanations and realize that many States have not bother to pull back on their Food Stamps requirements.

Shame on them. they are wasting tax payers money and in reality not helping anyon e at all.

Yes, whether you are a Republican or a Democrat. anything that affect the good functioning of any government is our business and we should all know about it. and discuss it  without the amount of partisanship that pervades in this message board many times.

Thank you all for your answers they were informative.

Why in the world would this be a big story that we have such a discussion on it. We even have the so called regs quoted as if that means anything. The regs are made to be interpreted locally and that is how you get school crossing guards paid for by Medicaid. If some states had their way the food stamp program would be ended or never started. Does Ga., Miss, Al have a program. It has helped people all know that. Oh I forgot Trump is still in the news in a bad way and the far right leaders try and keep all busy on the silly stuff by telling their followers to flood the Internet with the silly stuff.

Why there could be topics about the height of one of the poster's wives, snow in which states, the cult, the swamp, who did who and a host of great topics. The nerve of someone infringing on this high caliber community!!! The shame you must feel. We should hit the poster with a wet noodle. Geez, why do I think that would be so easy to find?


Read the answer I got. It makes no sense and sounds like something written to take up space and a desperate effort by the far right enablers to keep the nonsense going.  Once again the far right enablers prove what the experts have said about them. One item was they have trouble thinking for themselves.
