Everyone knows I lean liberal, but in this case, I am for insuring that no one abuses the food stamp program.

For me, though, it is all about implementation. Will the rug just be pulled from underneath everyone, and those who can prove they need it, get it, or will there be a more compassionate approach.

And I still think Trump is harming our country.

The Food Stamp program expanded under Obama.  It used to be for poor people.  With more than $20 Trillion in debt, do you think it's right that our children and grandchildren ought to be picking up the tab for other than truly needy and indigent people? (especially in the case of able bodied single freeloaders)

" The maximum gross monthly income is 130 percent of the federal poverty level, and the maximum net monthly income is 100 percent of the federal poverty level. For instance, if your household only consists of one person, then the gross monthly income to be eligible for SNAP is $1,287 (net $990).Oct 25, 2017 "

Don't judge a book by that cover today.

You need to cut little vypr girl some slack she's just jealous that Stu has at the very least 10 years of education on her. She was a pre school dropout  who's parent's needed a scarecrow and since she made ugly Betty look like a playboy model she got the job. Hell they even had to tie a rotted bone around her neck so the family dog would play with her.So now you know why Little vypr girl is such a mean stupid bitch.

He took what he got, and made more. That's to his credit.

And because of this, Maine's citizens are flying the coop to states that do have Food stamps? Huh

Hopefully, but most are drug addicts and NY comes to us.

I don't think you actually read what I wrote. I agree that the program needs to fight abuse.

Obama expanded the number of people eligible for food stamps well beyond the poor people this program was designed to assist.  Additionally, the SNAP/EBT card system of "food stamps" has been riddled with abuse.  (within the last few years there was local news here in New York that people were getting cash from their EBT cards at the casino at the local Indian Reservation so they could gamble) http://www.newyorkupstate.com/casinos/2017/07/turning_stone_casino_accepted_gamb...

There have been many arrests made over the years for convenient store schemes giving cash out for inflated prices on EBT cards. 

This program which was designed to ensure poor people won't go hungry, has been expanded to cover people who are far from "poor" and it is full of abuse.

People in their 40s who do not like free loaders should move out of their parents home and try making it on their own then they will see why so many families are living in their cars as they cant afford the high rent and food now days  Turn fox news off and find out how things really are now days. Not being told only what they want to hear.
