MamaLenore: Amazing how people think cuts should be made to Veterans benefits but not to welfare recipients. Veterans earned what they get can't say the same for Welfare Recipients.

MamaLenore: WTH ever... I work a great job and barely have enough to feed my family. But because I have an education and great work ethics and a decent job I don't qualify for Food Stamps. As mentioned here:

“I think it’s a horrible thing,” said Najuah Mudahy, 30, also of the Culver City shelter, a food stamp recipient who works two jobs, as a clerk at a shoe store and a hostess at California Pizza Kitchen. They bring in $9 an hour. Mudahy said she runs out of money to keep her 3-year-old daughter fed before the end of every month, even on dinners of canned soup

You live in a shelter not paid by you, work two jobs making 9 dollars an hours and only have one child. How could you run out of money and need assistance? A can of soup by the end of the month. What are you using your money for?

I say cut the Food Stamp program and force people to get on their feet like the rest of working America. Users get to relaxed with being handed everything why would they get up and work. I see everyday McDonalds, Pizza Hut, gas stations and other places hiring. But that requires people to put forth an effort to succeed so they don't work.

Fran: I remember when the President said early in his first term years ago, that his top
priority was getting people to work... since his policies and radical changes to the economy including government takeover of General Motors, Healthcare and hidden inflation have not worked, so neither did his promise to get people to work. Obamacare
has caused working people to loose hours. How about that hidden inflation that has been in effect since he took over...remember what the price of gasoline was when he took office? As the price of fuel went up, prices of everything went up and despite the
price of gasoline going down lately due to lack of demand, the prices at the stores do not get ratcheted downward. People are too numbed down to remember and yes many
were dumbed down when they voted for this change... the young people today who were mesmerized by his campaign are the most hurt by his policies...they will never have the chance to grow up in a prosperous America because of all the debt saddling and total control he and the demoncrats pushed on us. Too bad for the cuts in freebees, like food stamps. Didn't anyone ever tell you that nothing in life was free?

Dr Strangelove: BOO HOO when will you AMERICAN food stamp recipients and bleeding heart liberals start complaining about illegal aliens on food stamps. Did you notice there is no mention of them in the article?
