4.5 Billion In Food Stamps Benefits Improperly Spent...
Food Stamp Money given to dead people, ineligible people, for pot munchies, medical Marijuana, alcohol, cigarets, etc...

Helluva safety net...

From The New American

According to a report published earlier this week, some $4.5 billion has been inappropriately applied to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), commonly known as food stamps, including benefits that were administered to 2,000 dead people in New York and Massachusetts.

Sen. Tom Coburn’s (R-Okla.) new archive of government waste, entitled the 2012 “Waste Book,” found that “7,236 people in these states are receiving duplicate benefits, while 286 are on state lists that should exclude them from receiving food stamps.” This translates into $1.4 million in improper payments per month, or $147.03 for each beneficiary — whether they’re dead or alive.

Detailed under the section “More money for the marijuana munchies,” Coburn reported that in three states some recipients collected SNAP benefits simply because they smoke marijuana. “Marijuana has been linked to an increased appetite, known as getting the ‘munchies,’ so perhaps it is no surprise the states of Maine, New Mexico, and Oregon gave extra food stamp benefits to users of the illegal drug,” the report affirms.

Saddletramp sucks as much as BRIEF does. Half the shit these retards spew is pure garbage. Only a moron would spend their day worrying about the little stupid stuff like this. This is the main problem with this country right now, we focus on the really insignificant issues like this while trillions are being fleeced. Same goes for abortion, gay marriage, and marijuana.

Tards like saddletramp keep this country from truly progressing. Let me remind you, this tard also believes there is a difference between the democrat and republican parties. He thinks third party puppet is the answer. Our ADHD minds needs to focus on the bigger issues like this country is dominated by the banking cartel and the military industrial complex.

Thanks saddletramp for proving you are either a shill or a piece of shit who doesn't recognize the really huge problems we face today. You want to make a difference? Stop focusing on $4.5 Billion dollar problems and tackle the bigger issues.

Yup, I believe it. There's a small convenience store here in the small town I live in that is very well known for letting people use food stamps to buy cigs, alcohol, pet food, diapers - pretty much anything that isn't food. They don't care.

Wow, that article is blatantly false.

I live in Tennessee, and for a time I did receive the "SNAP" benefit.

I say DID, past tense. I now have a stable job, and pay for my groceries out of pocket. I had the food stamps for about 6 months and felt no issue with taking them since I have paid taxes for over twenty years, and had to eat.

Speaking from experience you can not use them at any fast food places at all. Still cant. Sorry to bust your bubble, but you cant. No energy drinks either, in fact, there are signs at almost every place that sells them that state you CANNOT use EBT for energy drinks. Also you cant use them for beer or cigarettes. There are signs up for those items as well.

People who pay income taxes care about this stuff, waste, fraud, cronyism, corruption, these are huge issues. I'm sorry you are so wrapped up in defending Obama that you will dismiss all of these crimes against the American people, but they are still crimes, regardless of who is in the White House...

You can say, it happens all the time, and you would be correct, but none of the arguments presented here make this crime right in any shape, form, or fashion...

oh wow, wake up, please.

Yes places HAVE to post that sign.....but is anyone there to make sure the store/owners follow the rules? Nope.

The store I mentioned - they just put whatever the person buys under the food category in the register so no tax is added, and so the system *thinks* its food. Its not like a big grocery store where the entire inventory is in the system and items are scanned - at this store the cashier manually punches in the price of each item, and they "claim" its all food they sold. This store has done this for YEARS.
