Food stamp program

"In the average month of 2012, according to the Department of Agriculture, there were 46,609,000 people participating in the food stamp program (formally known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program). That contrasts with the 44,059,000 women who worked full-time, year-round in 2012, according to the Census Bureau’s report on Income, Poverty and Health Insurance Coverage in the United States." Doesn't anyone understand that eventually there won't be enough people working to pay for welfare? We'll it has already started to happen. Get a job people! If you are able bodied get any kind of a job to avoid subsidies and handouts like food stamps, WICK, welfare etc. Our country is going down the tubes fast. It won't last through the rest of Obama 's dictatorship.

How about Eastwood getting some FACTS.

Like the fact that MOST people receiving snap..including in our County...ARE WORKING. Many work FULL TIME. Yet wages are so low that they cannot buy food for their children.

Bash the hard working poor.

Why not bash instead the greedy companies that allow wages to be so low that full time employees still are eligible for such benefits?

who cares who's on food stamps? if they're able bodied have them do community work to supplement the cost. a little exercise might even cut down on their medicaid tab?

During my high school years I worked part time at The Brigham Food Market, a small store on Brigham Road. I remember the owner placing a sign in the front window saying "we do not accept food stamps". He did however keep an account ledger behind the counter listing those folks who ere given credit for goods they could not afford. The point is that you can be compassionate without being stupid. Americans today, led by their government, are just plain stupid.

Once again judeye fails to grasp the intent of the article. Poor soul. No concept of money, finance and good sense.

Have you never researched who is on food stamps?

Most of the adults ARE WORKING..many FULL TIME. The employers pay such low wages that even when working, they qualify for SNAP.

Most of the rest of the people on food stamps are disabled, senior citizens, or CHILDREN.

How about you try looking something called FACTS UP before condemning something you obviously know little to nothing about.
