I’m not sure which is the good news in learning that there are more welfare recipients than college students, given the state of wackademia.
Since most degrees are worthless, and a crazy number of college kids have no jobs and are living at home, or worse, I’m not surprised to learn that there are more food stamp recipients than college students in Michiganistad.
In today’s academic environment, Liberals have created a university-to-welfare program.
According to Breitbart,
Michigan, which announced on Friday plans to begin drug testing some welfare recipients, currently has 1,679,421 individuals on food stamps (known officially as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP), according to the U.S. Agriculture Department. According to the Michigan Department of Education, the state’s total pupil count for K-12 is 1,564,114.
Michigan’s food stamp program has struggled to combat fraud and abuse. As recently as last week, for example, three brothers pleaded guilty for their roles in a food stamp fraud scheme at the Middle Eastern Market in Grand Rapids, Michigan, that cost taxpayers $1,278,700.
This year, Michigan’s food stamp program cost taxpayers $2,576,165,148.
Perhaps Michigan will soon investigate the fraud of higher education as well.
