maybe throw in some vegie seeds so people can learn to be slightly self sufficient. If they grow more than enough they could sell/trade them, to buy their non essentials.

Government cheese as peanut butter were many times all we had to eat. I'm incredibly thankful that shit was available, and so were the other kids who lived on it all summer.

Households receiving $90 per month or more would get a portion in shelf-stable milk, ready to eat cereals, pasta, peanut butter, beans and canned fruit, vegetables, and meat, poultry or fish. The remainder of the benefit would go onto the debit card for use at approved grocery stores.

Even if some enterprising niggers tried to plant a vegetable garden, other niggers would just steal everything and rip up the plants for fun. That's why Africa is such a shithole. It's in their DNA.

Oh God, this is great. First trump held the daca taco niggers hostage, then just when the dems think they can corner him, he pulls out a tarus judge, points it at the GIBS, and says, this hostage dies now.

So now the democrats will have to fight for either the gibs, or the taco niggers. This will not end well for them.

Gibs are bullshit anyway. The same people who tell us not to feed the ducks or stray animals because they'll become lazy and dependant on handouts are the same people who cry about all the poor hungry people who should get free gibs with absolutely no strings attached.

I want to see someone show statistically how gibs have decreased poverty - show California pre-gibs 1900s to California super-gibs 2018 and how much poverty has increased.

The IRS doesn't have enough manpower to go after welfare cases scamming the system. They have less than 2,000 agents investigating "tax crimes" and half of those are occupied with rampant identity theft and other scams.

It's called the Supplemental Nutrition something something because you're supposed to buy better food with it, on top of your food budget. If you can't afford food, maybe think about applying?

Sure, you can rice, beans, eggs, bananas, and greens your way through life, but if your income is below the threshold then don't leave money on the table.

I was this person last year. Here is the thing....I was on food stamps and WIC, my car was on its last dying leg....I walked into the dealership to trade for another used vehicle....I didn't qualify. You know what I did qualify for though? A brand new 2017 Corolla. How? I have no fucking clue. Something about using the rebate as a downpayment, ect. Ect. I walked in with no money down and terrible credit and they gave me a car. I had to scrape, beg, plead, and borrow to afford the insurance of $150 to drive it off the lot. I didn't have to make a first payment for three months. I still don't understand it. I hekd my breath the entire time I signed paperwork waiting for the deal to fall through. It never did. I took the car. I had a newborn and a 2 1/2 year old and I needed the car to get to work, take them to daycare, and get my husband to his doctor appointments. The payments were $450 a month with a horrible interest rate. Luckily by the time the first payment was due my husband was back to work full time so we could afford it. (He battled cancer). Its the housing lending frenzy all over again.

We can never pay off the debt without totally revamping our corrupt monetary system. Need to borrow the money in order to pay it back... but then there is interest on what we "borrow". I'm looking at you, Fed.

Up until now, I never really cared for Trump. Don't get me wrong, I never went "Not My President", or anything like that. I just didn't think he was all that great.

I can give him points for something like this. I've been saying we should dump EBT in favor of MREs for years. Take the money that is being spent buying soda in a convenience store and redirect it to the preparedness industry.

Eh, I'm not sure. Last year we were on food stamps. We received $300 a month for a family of four. I get that it's costly, but I do think this current system is very efficient. Also low-income households vary widely on their access to certain kitchen appliances, skill, and time. I mean, sending a bunch of food that will take an hour or more to prepare when the able body adults are already working 65+ hours a week each isn't sustainable. Also pots and pans get expensive, the same with microwaves. I don't think a one size fits all solution is the best here. Some households can inly make sandwiches, some households can only make microwave meals, and others can only cook from one pot. It all depends on what you had when you landed in the program. A few fortunate households might come with a fully functional kitchen, but most don't. Just my two cents.

Anyone can afford a $3 pot or pan from a thrift store. One of the biggest problems with people in poverty is obesity now if people want their daily diabetes soda they'll have to get a job instead of buying it on food stamps.

If you ask around, you can probably get a couple of pots and pans for nothing. I know that I've been given quite a few over the years to the point where I have way too many (Oh you're a guy? Here, take this cookware since you don't have any!) and have to clean them out now.

A couple of saucepans, a wok, and a cast-iron frypan are about all I need.

Trump Budget Would Swap Food Stamps for ‘100% American’ Food Packages - Bloomberg

'The food stamp program served 42.2 million people and 20.9 million households on average during the 2017 fiscal year. '

'"This budget, as with every other president’s budget before, will not prevent us from doing that job."'

'The average household benefit was $254.14, thus 81 percent of homes receiving aid would be included in the initiative, according to the USDA. SNAP assistance cost $68.1 billion in 2017, with $63.7 billion given out as benefits. '

'The plan is part of an effort to reform SNAP and save a projected $214 billion over a decade. '

'The program would provide food-stamp recipients with "the same level of food value" as the current system, Perdue added. '
