A) You do have a point. I recommend you write your state representative and share your concerns about the current Food Stamp – Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) program.

  1. I agree…People on EBT shouldn’t be surviving on soda..chips..etc.
    Actually…Our whole country should get off all that junk food… It plays a big part in reason USA is 73% overweight.
    The most overweight country in world.. Quite sad.
    Anyways..
    Many of those “Poor people” you say…don’t have kitchens, cooking supplies..etc. Or a fridge/freezer… Or even a home..
    Either way…we shouldn’t revoke what people can eat.
    60% of meats are wasted in USA.. 45% fruits wasted.. 50% of vegetables..wasted from this “great country”
    I’m shocked I fought for USA in Iraq, to become the country it is becoming..
    But..I am homeless mostly now and manage to eat healthy.
    People need to stop asking for minimum wage to go up also…because it makes EVERYTHING else 10%+ more expensive.
