ProsI can afford to eat .
ConsEmbarresed over the fact I had to ask for food. (a lazy non working woman /3 kids about 800.00 plus WIC..A thanks for never working, just havin kids )
Restricting people from food in AMERICA ? Not all persons on the Food Stamp programs are lazy non working people. They are those of us who have fallen sick, not by our choice, lost our jobs, gained extra mouths to feed ( someone passes on ) and alot of other non choice reasons that we had to get help. Most all of us are embarresed by the fact we need help. And now you want to restrict what we buy ? I do buy the cheaper brands, I use coupons. Lots of Ramen Noodles. Yes, I but coke. If you want to ban sugary sodas, you must ban bags of sugar, tea, koolaid, everything with sugar. Just because I am having a bad time now ( I worked all my life) does the goverment want to make it worse? Please. FYI..With the use of food stamps, it keeps jobs and grogery stores going. It keeps the manufacturers going. The Truck drivers going. Get the point? The state may lay you off but the Food Program helps in more ways than you think. Do I think it is right for some people to lay around and have 4 or 5 kids JUST to get Food Stamps and let our Government pay for their upbringing? NO! Alot of those people NEVER work..And why do they not work? They say they cannot afford a baby sitter, so they guess they will have another baby, different father, and then that keeps them safe once again from working, and then another baby, etc. get the drift?Those are the ones eating T-Bones and name brands. Not me. Most of us older people get very little .I get 51.00 a month to eat on. So do I thin I deserve a Coke if I want one? yes. I worked all my life.
Do not limit or ban what foods we can buy. This is the land of the Free. Do put some of the "under 29" non working-never really worked leaches, TO WORK. IF THEY WANT TO HAVE 4,5,8 KIDS, THEN GET A JOB AND MAKE SURE YOU CAN FEED THEM. THOSE PEOPLE ARE THE ONES WHO GIVE THE REST OF US A BAD NAME. Do not be too quick to judge. Someone who pulls out a foodstamp card, could be very ill and on their deathbed. You do not know, and someday, it could be you.
