Reduced food stamp benefits have been a long time coming. Despite what the so called experts tell you , food stamp assistance stunts individual initiative to hunt for a job. Now doctors are warning us of the potential health issues from cutting food stamps.
Food stamps also known as the supplemental nutrition assistance program(SNAP) feed around 15% of the United States and cost around $85 billion a year. Working people effectively pay for the food that non-working people consume. Oh yes, I know some people have fallen on hard times and need temporary help. However, the folks that choose to live off the fat of the land, making no attempt to find employment, should be cut off. If they then choose not to work, then they choose poor health and ultimately death.
Government assistance abuse is prevalent in the United States. Cutting Food Stamps is a step in the right direction with respect to reducing this abuse. Read about the lowlifes in Albuquerque, NM who claim they lost their EBT card(credit card convenient food stamps) when they had really just sold it to buy meth or their drug of choice. It gets worse, the government sent them another and the cycle continues.
