Two thirds disabled/elderly/underage and a third with jobs, suddenly "get a job" doesn't seem so clever a thought.

Oops, there goes "muh welfare hogs!!!" and "fast food EBT!"

Differences in the expenditure patterns of SNAP and non-SNAP householdswere relatively limited, regardless of how data were categorized.
Whoops, there goes "SNAP users eat steak while working people eat ramen"
You're doing all the gay shit that made me leave reddit minus the censorship. You're taking the word of shitty blogs as fact without thinking about it. Forming extremely strong, "confident" opinions from an extremely low information state based on emotional reactions. Not reading or researching anything even a little. Worst of all wetting your panties over seeing yourself as victims like some virtue signalling faggot!
