Revamped Food Stamp Program: Get Off Your Butts

The Left often talk about the wealth of the super rich, and it’s true how much the one percent possesses. But it’s nothing compared to the wealthiest evildoer: the Federal government.

There is not ONE of the wealthiest one percent who could amass the debt of the Federal government and survive. He or she would be removed from the Forbes list post-haste, and likely be in jail for embezzlement or some “white collar” crime the Fed commits daily.

Because the Fed is rarely scrutinized, we never consider how much money goes to the 47 percent Romney made famous. Consider that if 100 million people soak the taxpayer for $10 each, we are talking $1 BILLION dollars. $100 each, and it’s $10 Billion. $1000 each, and it $100 Billion.

It’s time we fight back from the waste, fraud, and abuse of these programs and force politicians to stop making government, ergo the American taxpayers responsible for the irresponsible.

As the US Herald commented, Sometimes it takes a little “tough love” to motivate those able-bodied individuals, to get off their asses and do a little job hunting.

The article goes on,

According to recent reports, between 500,000 and 1 million of SNAP (Food Stamp Program) recipients will lose benefits over the course of 2016 due to the return of a three-month limit for unemployed adults aged 18 to 49 who aren’t disabled or raising minor children.

The impact will affect recipients in the 23 state that are required or electing to re-impose the time limit in 2016.

This provision limits individuals to three months of SNAP benefits in any 36-month period when they aren’t employed or in a work training program for a minimum of 20 hours a week.

This obviously sounds like a sound idea in getting the chronically unemployed back into the job market, however government has in the past instituted similar measures only to fall back as the primary enabler of able-bodied individuals not seeking employment, and in many cases responsible for promoting a “welfare mentality” within the inner cities.

However this program is considerably different then the others, in that it operates on a time limit basis rather than opportunity, so more people are set to be cut off than the other programs.

In short the time limit becomes the motivating factor in getting a job and forces the welfare recipient to actually look for employment…let’s see if tough love actually works, like in getting a job!

I couldn’t agree more. It’s time people became more motivated to find jobs and not rely on the false safety net that has no choice but to end.
