The faces of food stamps
VIDEO ON MSN MONEY
1) Deport illegal immigrants. Like the family in this story. Shame on you NBC for aiding and abetting criminals.
2) Quit having so many children. It is irresponsible to have litters of children you can't support.
3) Cut off monetary aid to 3rd world countries who hate our guts.
4) Reduce congressional salries by at least 1/2.
Wake up America, its the few who take advantage of the system who ruin it for the rest. I live in a resort town in WI, during the summer you would be amazed at the sights we see. People driving Cadillac's or other expensive SUV's, sporting diamond rings, and wearing name brand clothes, then asking if the convenience store they're standing in takes the "Quest card". I'm sorry if you're on any type of state sponsored assistance you shouldn't be buying any thing at a convenience store, much less cigarettes, or alcohol, not to mention a convenience store in a resort town where you've brought your 8 kids for vacation.
You need a job.....Have any of you read the want ads in the papers? it's loaded with ads begging for help! If these people are in such direr straights what difference does it make what kind of job they have. Swallow your pride, at this point the only thing that matters is your family.
One of the biggest problems within our economy is not so much the financial assistance programs as designed ... it is the lack of monitoring it and where the money goes. It still baffeles me that we can have two illegal immigrants living here .. unmarried .. having three children whw are receiving welfare benefits and probably other benefits on the taxes we pay. I am disgusted by it. No wonder there isn't enough available for those that worked for it and deserve it .. we are to busy giving it away to all that don't really deserve it.
The problem with food stamps is that we give $200 per month to 25yr old punks who can work any place and we only give sickly elderly ladies $50 per month.
I can't believe the story of the kid who graduated from the private school and liberal arts college. Let me help him out, Stop going to private schools and getting degrees that are not in demand. Go to a state school for half of the cost. Here is one for you, go see a Military recruiter and sign up for 4 years under the college loan repayment program. You would have a job, they would pay your loans and they will feed and house you.
As for the veteran, the VA system could use some work. It was taking 3 to 4 months to get your claim started as long as it was processed before you got out. This was 2-3 years ago. It is now almost a year. I have many friends in this situation. It is sad and I feel for the guy.
our soldiers shouldn't have to wait for anything and they should not have to get food stamps or loose their homes because they fight for our freedom and rights. we the people need to show them RESPECT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So .... what has Obama done for you and your family and the entire middle class in the last 4 years??
