Shouldnt any sane person be trying to wean off of government assistance. The food stamp program is a good one. I hate to see it abused.

Tax Payers are spending MILLIONS to advertise on TV for more people to sign up for Food Stamps.

This administration is determined to attract as many people as possible to their entitlement society which adds to their voter base. People are not going to vote fewer handouts to themselves. Once again, this administration works hard to punish good behavior and reward bad behavior.

How can Sessions doubt the benefits of more money funneling into the community through the grocery store cash register? Maybe the store would hire more workers? If the store sold more food they would need more deliveries of produce, canned goods and so on. All this added economic activity would be good. Jeff Sessions's stance on this issue is the kind of thing that makes people hate political discussions.
As the article states, people with good nutrition are less likely to miss days at work; that's good for the economy too. Also according to the article most people are off the program after a few months. Heaven forbid the government ever does anything to help anyone but banks, corporations and the already well off. What are they thinking?
I understand the position that you think this program is creating a permanent underclass of couch potatoes but the facts don't bear that out. Many people hesitate to even sign up, as stated in the article. Society frowns on an unnecessary hand out. Sure. I'd rather err on the side of feeding kids and families and risk giving away a box of cereal unnecessarily. Over-all I think the program helps more than it harms.


“SNAP helps families become financially stable and make the transition to self-sufficiency, getting them through the tough times.”

USDA contends that SNAP even offers incentives to get back to work, as SNAP benefits only decrease by 24 to 36 cents for every additional dollar a SNAP participant earns.

WOW...I never came across anyone who bought into that line as spewed by former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

PLEASE, explain extracting, by force, $100.00 in taxes from a worker in Pensacola, then it is filtered through the government bureaucracy resulting in $50.00 in food stamps being given to a NON-worker in Pensacola helps the economy in Pensacola or that grocery store you're concerned about.

“I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty but leading or driving them out of it. In my youth I traveled much, I observed in different countries that the more public provision were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And on the contrary, the less was done for them the more they did for themselves and became richer.”

Believe it or not there are many children who go w/o food in this country. Food stamps was designed to provide only 75 % of your food needs to discourage dependency.

AGAIN...whenever the Progressives have nothing...if their program, whatever it is, is shown to be a failure that is irrelevant, immaterial and unimportant. IT IS FOR THE CHILDREN!

What it was "designed" to do and what it has become are, as you know...light years apart.

If you recall, the camel is the result of committee's efforts to design a horse.

Goodness, me. Now how many times, Markle, have you written that health care reform, particularly single payer, will make things tough for our children? How many times have you called us "shameful and immoral" because, according to you, any real change in the way health care is delivered and funded in our country will bring future harm to our children?

Pot, kettle. And so forth and so on.

dreamsglore,

If brains were worth money, you'd be on welfare, foodstamps, and living under an overpass.

Rejection of facts on this subject are based on the notion that they don't fit with the experiences of those posting BS as a response. New data should not be thrown out just because it doesn't match our preexisting ideas. If that were true no one would be able to learn anything new. Fortunately not everyone is so closed minded. Thanks for posting the link Dreams.

From your sensationalized source: "As many as 17 million children nationwide are struggling with what is known as food insecurity."

Food insecurity? What a crock! Schools offer breakfast and lunch to kids, some now offer DINNER along with pre and post class care. Who needs the parents? When were they absolved of THEIR responsibility?

We have 67 poverty programs, we have spent over $15 TRILLION has been spent on the Johnson "War on Poverty" and "Great Society" and the rate of POVERTY remains UNCHANGED.

it took her 3 days to hunt down that story. that story is a bunch of bunk, we dont have starving children like they do in other countries. our kids are fat. look around. even the president said so.

sure, there may be a FEW exceptions because maybe some poor kid has a sorryass for a parent. but thats few. as far as children being able to get food, its wide open man.

what this program does is trying to get people to not be self reliant, but the goc doesnt want people to be self reliant.

ask yourself, why in the hell would the gov pay millions of dollars to offer people to get on foodstamps, they advertise it like its a product. rediculus.

and its rediculus if anyone really thinks we have a bunch of children starving here in america.

shit, i bet the definition of a kid starving in america is he/she didnt get their daily soda and candy fix. < ah mommy, theirs no soda and ding dongs:(

The U.S. Department of Agriculture reported that in 2010, 14.5% of households in the United States -- about 17.2 million -- lacked the resources to provide enough food for everybody. Among those, about 6.4 million households saw normal eating patterns disrupted or reduced because there wasn't enough food.

Food insecurity -- uncertainty about where the next meal will come from -- is particularly hard on one group: children.

This is how stupid you are.

This story seems to be unfolding into something completely different than the original story.

Okay. Then we should have 14.5 % or 17.2 million on foodstamps. I'd bet the number is way more than that.
