Those people obviously need help or the government won't give them aid. It's not like they are taking the money out of your wallet and buying food

Don't you receive enough benefit from the taxes you pay? Have you ever been driving down a road that wasn't paved because we had to pay the food stamp recipients first?

It's not black and white. If we actually focused on real issues besides these talking points, maybe the electorate would vote with the real issues in mind, too.


I just seen an update on what Food stamps cost per year---$80Billion---

Just curious, but where do you think the money comes from?

How many people do you know who rip off the Food Stamp System?

Zero

Nope, nor have I witnessed anything like this going down.

I also haven't ever seen someone with a cart full of ribeyes, lobster tails, etc.... using a food stamp card to make the purchase, but it's possible I just never paid really close attention.

I got a buddy who got separated on purpose to get $800/mth Food Stamps--- & I have also been approached to do the 2 for 1 deal---which you don't even need an ID but I aint down with that Fraud---

Taxpayers getting screwed as usaul!


SNAP Monthly Data

I know a bill just passed today to cut 39B over 10 yrs but Osama will Veto that shite---


Wow. A sample of one. With a 100% result.

You're right. 100% +/- infinity% of the tax payers dollars are being wasted, because you hang out with losers who rip the system off.




Its called SELECTION BIAS my friend. How many people do you actually know who a) are eligible for food stamps and b) would make it your business to know that they are eligible and c) would make it your business to know whether or not they claimed them? If your answer is ZERO to ANY of these questions, then you should expect that 100% of any sample you take of people you know on food stamps will be ripping off the system. This says much more about the selection bias than actual reality.



Now go stuff your gut full of cheeseburgers randy.
