People with $7K Worth of Food Stamps?
People with $7K Worth of Food Stamps? The State Where This Is Happening Might Surprise You

“Should there be a limit on how much tax payers dollars can be given to someone on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program?” Texas’ KGBT 4TV asks in an investigative report on possible food stamp abuse in the Rio Grande Valley.

“One valley man was outraged after finding out how much money some people on government assistance are getting,” reads the report. “Action 4 News uncovers just how many people are on SNAP in the Valley and how much money they are getting.”

The report was helped along by a gas station clerk who had grown tired of seeing customers make enormous purchases with their Lone Star cards. In some cases, he says, people would show up and have a balance of at least $7,000 on their cards.

“There are times I see customers come in and they’ve got thousands,” “Bob,” who spoke on condition of anonymity, told KGBT 4TV.

“[O]n an average day he sees about 10 different people all with over $2,000 in food stamps, who report to the government they cannot make ends meet,” the report notes.

“But they’re driving Mercedes,” he adds.

bsflag this is complete made up story, that isn't possible. No fucking way. The most one person can get a month is $200 and IF YOU DON'T SPEND IT YOU LOSE IT AFTER THE 3RD MONTH.

PEOPLE ON SSI WITH HIGH RENTS STILL ONLY GET LESS THAN $150 A MONTH.. AND THATS PEOPLE WHO ARE REALLY SICK AND CAN'T EVEN TAKE CARE OF THEMSELVES.

Re: People with $7K Worth of Food Stamps?
When will you Morans learn the social programs are a way for the money printers to distribute inflation directly into the economy. They dont give a shit of who and how much as long as it gets into the economy. Then it is extracted back out of the economy through higher fuel prices (laudered) and then it is distributed to the OPEC countries.

Can anyone understand this or is it to complex ?

Re: People with $7K Worth of Food Stamps?
It's a real conundrum... Having programs available that truly aid a person during emergency or temporary situations and yet keep it from being abused...

I go to church with a family that is on every assistance program you can imagine from food stamps, electric assistance, and medicaid for a chronic health condition. Yet they live in a very nice house, drive a newish truck and constantly facebook post about restaurants they are eating in... They are consummate takers. They're not bad people per se, but they are inherently selfish.

Same church different family I know who's been without a decent job in 2 years. Went from 80k to 20k. When someone needs help they are the first one to bring a meal or mow a yard. I know for a fact they will go without if it helps someone else.

The really crazy thing is family B brought meals to family A not too long ago after another government sponsored baby delivery. The wife complained to the head of the meals committee about what was brought - that it wasn't very substantial or generous - along those lines - cuz there wasn't enough for leftovers and was meatless.

I love Jesus. The only way it's even possible to love a person like that is thru Him... People are wretched and disgusting sometimes...
James 1:2-4 Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing.

True.

So lets say the OP story is true.. Then that family maybe didn't use half of their balance the previous month and they have at least 15 dependents.

Or they did use their balance last month and they have a tleast 34 dependents.

The story is bullshit. Or people are hacking into their cards or the system somehow and adding zeros to their balance.

Well, I'm guessing you are not familiar with the Valley area of Texas. If you were, this wouldn't be so hard to believe.

I mean no disrespect - it just is what it is...

Imagine a high population center of poor immigrants with a religious conviction against birth control, a cultural bent toward multi generational housing and employment scenarios that are undocumented and under the table. Wouldn't be hard to conjure up a household of 15-20 with little to no income...

I think the scammers use those cultural norms to their advantage.

I am NOT saying the majority of people in these situations are scamming...

I'm saying scammers scam - it's who they are... And they will be brazen if they're allowed to be...

This is absolute garbage. Go work a retail job that sell food. You will see how VERY VERY wrong you are.

I've never seen 7,000, but I have seen women in their 20s come in with five kids, that they cuss at constantly and won't buy a damn thing for, spend close to 1,000 and still have upwards of 3,000 left on their card.

I lost my job awhile back and, prior to starting my current job, I had to use food stamps. I had to fight tooth and nail for over a month to get anything, but, in the end, I got $360 a month, for myself. So, yeah, that alone blows your "fact" out of the water. $200 is the MINIMUM, maybe.

As said earlier, food stamps do nothing but assist in the hyperinflation that's been going on for awhile. Grocery stores know that a large amount of their business comes from food stamp usage. They also know that people that get 2K plus a month don't give a shit what they pay for something. This is a large part of the reason that food has gone up so quickly. They can make their bank off the food stamp crowd alone. Fuck the rest of us that have to use cash. They don't mind if we walk out with just a bag. They know they have plenty coming that will fill several shopping carts full and overpay with foodstamps.

Re: People with $7K Worth of Food Stamps?
Actually it is possible to get quite a bit. Here in TX, when I was on them back in 2003, we had a family of 4 and we received $6-650 a month. And it did roll over if we didn't use it.

Now $7000, they either let it roll over a lot or it's false. But, I do know, the more dependents you have, the higher it goes. There was one point that we thought we may need to apply, we are a family of 7 now, and we would have gotten well over $1000. However, we decided that things were not severe enough and we could make it work without. We did and are now back on our feet again.

As said earlier, food stamps do nothing but assist in the hyperinflation that's been going on for awhile. Grocery stores know that a large amount of their business comes from food stamp usage. They also know that people that get 2K plus a month don't give a shit what they pay for something. This is a large part of the reason that food has gone up so quickly. They can make their bank off the food stamp crowd alone. Fuck the rest of us that have to use cash. They don't mind if we walk out with just a bag. They know they have plenty coming that will fill several shopping carts full and overpay with foodstamps.

It's not a theory it's the law and I said it was the law. Who else is in your household?

Re: People with $7K Worth of Food Stamps?
I managed a lube center and have worked with a few people on assistance (yes some actually work), these guys make minimum wage have 3-4 kids.

Though they ate good, neither drove a Lexus, Mercedes or any other luxury car. I have never seen anyone pay with a lonstar card and get into a Lexus, Mercedes, Cadillac ect..

Most of that shit is just that, made up shit.

Re: People with $7K Worth of Food Stamps?
bsflag this is complete made up story, that isn't possible. No fucking way. The most one person can get a month is $200 and IF YOU DON'T SPEND IT YOU LOSE IT AFTER THE 3RD MONTH.

PEOPLE ON SSI WITH HIGH RENTS STILL ONLY GET LESS THAN $150 A MONTH.. AND THATS PEOPLE WHO ARE REALLY SICK AND CAN'T EVEN TAKE CARE OF THEMSELVES.
