Pretty awful clickbait site, regardless of the validity of the 'article'

I took the liberty of not changing one word of your post.

I simply bolded the most relevant part.

I cant think of a better system than people only receive benefits WHEN THEY QUALIFY.

Again, not sure what your reasoning is that people who qualify should NOT receive benefits except your own beliefs that needy people (the definition of qualifying for assistance) should be denied help.

If there is fraud, those should be expelled and prosecuted. The rest (those who qualify) should keep their benefits

Or, if of sound body and mind, get off your Fn ass and get a 2nd job or do something to improve their lives. Somewhere there has to be a willingness to improve your life and that of your family. Unfortunately the past shows it often continues generation to generation and the giving of handouts contributed to it.

The difference is I believe most people are capable of improving their lives if forced to. Whereas you continue to defend laziness and poor life decisions.

Boz,

https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2019/02/01/2018-28059/supplemental-nutrition-assistance-program-requirements-for-able-bodied-adults-without-dependents

Please read the first sentence first paragraph in that link.

It states people able to work have restrictions on the amount of time they can receive public assistance within a given time frame 36 months or i.e. once you have received your quota of benefits you are ineligible for at 3 years from any more benefits.

What you are advocating IS ALREADY IN EXISTENCE.

Again, not sure why you are imagining the government is just handing out money with no time limits to undeserving people.

You have yet to show an official government link that says your claims

All the links I have given advocate precisely what you want.

Please clarify.

A fast food combo meal is running $10-$15. Food Stamps only pays $3-$6 a day. #FightFor15



I eat off of the dollar menu so why can't they? I get two chicken sandwiches, a fry, and a drink for $4 at McDonalds.

Bah. Using their app can knock 25% off that. Stop throwing your money away. Food stamps can't be used at fast food joints. In fact, it's hard to use them on any hot food. That seems counterintuitive.

I used to buy sirloin steak when it was $3 a pound. I'd buy like half a dozen steaks and throw them in the freezer. Years later, how much is steak? $25 a pound? There's no keeping up with inflation here.

Working at a job or multiple jobs, improving our lives, and collecting food stamps are not mutually exclusive activities.

There are a lot of people who do get off their ass, earn an income, support a family and get welfare. There are also people who do that and don't collect welfare. And then there are people who sit on their ass all day and collect a government check. And people who sit around all day and don't collect.

The problem lies entirely with the people who continue to give out the welfare when not appropriate. Continually and constantly blaming the people collecting it is completely illogical and is a big part of what allows it to continue forever.
