CBO - Food Stamp Benefit Rolls increased 70% since 2007 - will continue growing until 2014
The Congressional Budget Office said Thursday that 45 million people in 2011 received Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits, a 70% increase from 2007. It said the number of people receiving the benefits, commonly known as food stamps, would continue growing until 2014.

Spending for the program, not including administrative costs, rose to $72 billion in 2011, up from $30 billion four years earlier. The CBO projected that one in seven U.S. residents received food stamps last year.

Well!, I know for one, that Long Island/NY metro area is high up among those, including from Brooklyn to the End of Montauk and NYC and probably about 75 miles radius from center Manhattan. And like a "Badly Run Business", "TPTB" are going to get rid of it somehow-I would!

And Long Island/NY metro area was a SETUP and TRAP, started by FDR, "The Levitts" ("Alfred and William -2 High Kapo Jews-"Who would sell their own mother for a price") and many top official jewish people (back from early 1940's), that sold out other jewish people. (for planting the European Moved jewish to the Long Island/NY metro area).

How to I get some free shit. I have never been on the dole a day in my life. I've never received food stamps, pell grants, HUD vouchers, WIC, et al yet I'm stuck paying for this shit. If people had the choice between starving or finding a way they would find a way. I am far from rich. When my spouse and I had our child we didn't qualify for WIC yet we didn't make much more than the cut off limit to qualify. Even if we had qualified we wouldnt have gotten on the program since its not anybody elses responsibility to support our child. My point is we had to get rid of cable, eating out at restaurants, unnecessary driving, cell phones and all kinds of other luxury shit just to eat. If cutting back was good enough for us it is good enough for the leeches in this country on food stamps.

Here in Pennsylvania, the migrant workers get first dibs on food stamps. So, if you are a unemployed, broke american citizen with a family, a non-citizen, non-tax payer will get food stamps over you.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

I agree with you 100%, unfortunately things were set in motion, 66+ years with putting certain people on "Entitlements", many "Blacks and Latinos" and many type "jewish people" who receive much larger "Entitlements" than the "Minorities". Policies, actually wrong policies, were created during FDR administration that set things in motion and the momentum to be the way it is for certain groups of People. It can't change unless the total collapse and "kill off" of regional areas of this Country (USA), which probably "TPTB" already have in mind already. I would rather work, than receive Unemployment, but not sure (@ this point) if I'm capable of working anymore, with many medical problems, I have.

You need to lose that way of thinking.Dont blame people for taking whats handed to them.I use to do the same thing but then I thought about it.Why should my family sit and struggle and do without when people with more than we have are getting help.Doesnt matter how many people think like you it wont change a thing and you still get by on less than if you got some assistance.The shape the country is in cant be fixed so you may as well get what you can qualify for.Its wasted over and over again.If you can qualify for some food stamps,get them.Let your family enjoy the food from it.Why work so others get benefits and let your family struggle to get by.
You posted a whole list of things.Do you think because you are to proud to accept help it will help the country,no it makes life harder for you and thats all it ever will accomplish.There comes a point when one says 'if you cant beat them,join them.'That time is where we are at now.

If you weren't illiterate then you wouldn't be broke and on the dole you stupid fuck. I have NEVER qualified for free shit as I said in my original post. Learn to fucking read. I said we were just over the threshold for qualifying for WIC when we had our child but even if we had qualified I would still have not taken WIC or food stamps because nobody else is responsible for taking care of my kid or my family but me. I'm not a leech. We cut out cable, cells phones, unnecessary trips and going out to eat and we made it. Others should give it a try. That was 14 years ago and I'm a hell of a lot better off now than I was back then.

People like you are EXACTLY what is wrong this country. You are too much of a pussy to cut back. Instead you feel your family is entitled to luxuries. If you cut the luxuries out then you would be able to afford to feed yourself and any children you spawned. If you cant afford the bastards then don't have them. Food stamps are not so lazy losers like you can have extra money left over to afford cable, eating in restaurants, your car note, cell phones, etc. All the shit I listed are LUXURIES. If you can afford them then you can afford to feed your own ass as well as everybody else in your family.

I will be so glad when the taxpayer funded dole is cut off. People will learn quick how to cut back or their stupid asses will starve.

Let me tell you something asshole...
You are the one that cant read.No where did I say you took anything.I said you were stupid to not take what you would qualify for and make it easier on your family.For instance not taking WIC if you qualified so the child could thrive better.

Dont you ever jump my shit like I get a handout.I have worked my whole adult life and even now I make enough that I cant qualify for food stamps.If I could qualify I sure would take them.As for luxuries you dipshit even with all my work I still can only afford a mobile home due to all the medical bills we faced when my husband went through his cancer ordeal and has since passed away ,also put 12 years of his life to the military.Also tons of medical bills with a sick child.I have no cell phone and no cable and my last vacation was over 20 years ago..

Illiterate my ass,I have a good education that I worked hard for.As for children I had one and it sure as hell wasnt a bastard you know it all fuck and paid for it completely,also paid for the funeral when she passed away.

I drive a 15 year old car that was paid for when purchased.I havent eaten in a restaurant in so long I dont recall when or where it was.

As for whats wrong with this country...its the retard assholes like you that somehow feel they are so much better than the rest of us and for some reason qualified to pass judgment on others such as you just did me without knowing one fact about me motherfucker.

What family and what luxuries.My husband and my child and my parents are all dead.Yes sir I am living the life of luxury.I am not on any dole and never have been shit face.

PEOPLE LIKE YOU ARE EXACTLY WHATS WRONG WITH THIS COUNTRY.

Before its all over you will be slapped off your high horse looking down on people and judging people you know nothing about just because you assume.

But you are just so much better than the likes of me.Fuck you and the horse you rode in on.

I love it when people feel this way... let me share a quick personal story.

I've been in and out of hospitals since I was born. My parents worked hard to get what they have and to take care of me. I worked, to my own detriment, from the time I was 15 until recently. I've always lost jobs to medical reasons, and I'm at the point in my life where I can no longer work.I just lost my last job (where I was working from home) and if I'm having too many problems just getting up and down the stairs in my home to sit in front of a computer and telephone to work, there doesn't seem to be anything I could possibly do. I started receiving food stamps (SNAP), for
myself, my wife and my 4 year old daughter, and we now have a son on the way. My family is also on Medicaid and I've recently had to apply for SSI/Disability...

I've been able, over the years, to support my family by arrangements I made with my parents, which is impossible now that my father has passed away. I can understand how you feel, that your hard earned money is going to support me and my family... and I thank you. I've already cut bills to the point where there is nothing left to cut, I pay for a $10 monthly cell phone, $6.95 internet, car insurance (on a 12 year old car). The household bills are being paid through escrow.

All of this aside, if you think for one minute that my life is happy shit, or that I'm wasting even a dollar of any of the services I receive, you're insane. The only other choice I have is to die, and for my family to do the same.

My sense of "entitlement" is just to live, I don't want or need anything superfluous. I think you would find that quite a few people are in my situation, what else would you have us do? Please have a heart, I know you and others work hard, but it couldn't hurt to try to be a little understanding too.

You posted a whole list of things.Do you think because you are to proud to accept help it will help the country,no it makes life harder for you and thats all it ever will accomplish.There comes a point when one says 'if you cant beat them,join them.'That time is where we are at now.

If you weren't illiterate then you wouldn't be broke and on the dole you stupid fuck. I have NEVER qualified for free shit as I said in my original post. Learn to fucking read. I said we were just over the threshold for qualifying for WIC when we had our child but even if we had qualified I would still have not taken WIC or food stamps because nobody else is responsible for taking care of my kid or my family but me. I'm not a leech. We cut out cable, cells phones, unnecessary trips and going out to eat and we made it. Others should give it a try. That was 14 years ago and I'm a hell of a lot better off now than I was back then.

People like you are EXACTLY what is wrong this country. You are too much of a pussy to cut back. Instead you feel your family is entitled to luxuries. If you cut the luxuries out then you would be able to afford to feed yourself and any children you spawned. If you cant afford the bastards then don't have them. Food stamps are not so lazy losers like you can have extra money left over to afford cable, eating in restaurants, your car note, cell phones, etc. All the shit I listed are LUXURIES. If you can afford them then you can afford to feed your own ass as well as everybody else in your family.

I will be so glad when the taxpayer funded dole is cut off. People will learn quick how to cut back or their stupid asses will starve.

I love it when people feel this way... let me share a quick personal story.

I've been in and out of hospitals since I was born. My parents worked hard to get what they have and to take care of me. I worked, to my own detriment, from the time I was 15 until recently. I've always lost jobs to medical reasons, and I'm at the point in my life where I can no longer work.I just lost my last job (where I was working from home) and if I'm having too many problems just getting up and down the stairs in my home to sit in front of a computer and telephone to work, there doesn't seem to be anything I could possibly do. I started receiving food stamps (SNAP), for
myself, my wife and my 4 year old daughter, and we now have a son on the way. My family is also on Medicaid and I've recently had to apply for SSI/Disability...

I've been able, over the years, to support my family by arrangements I made with my parents, which is impossible now that my father has passed away. I can understand how you feel, that your hard earned money is going to support me and my family... and I thank you. I've already cut bills to the point where there is nothing left to cut, I pay for a $10 monthly cell phone, $6.95 internet, car insurance (on a 12 year old car). The household bills are being paid through escrow.

All of this aside, if you think for one minute that my life is happy shit, or that I'm wasting even a dollar of any of the services I receive, you're insane. The only other choice I have is to die, and for my family to do the same.

My sense of "entitlement" is just to live, I don't want or need anything superfluous. I think you would find that quite a few people are in my situation, what else would you have us do? Please have a heart, I know you and others work hard, but it couldn't hurt to try to be a little understanding too.

I understand completely but as for thinking him I sure wouldnt.Lets assume his little drop in the bucket goes to the bankers or the big wigs that he wont mind dishing his loot to because they are so high class they are worthy.That kind never helps the people that really need it without bitching but yet remain mum to all the other waste and big spending and the ones really living the life of luxury off their taxes.I like to think that if or when the time comes that I need help mine will come from a kind soul that wont judge me.
You sound like a good person.Like you it really puzzles me that some people can think living by barely getting by is a luxury.Puzzles me even more at how mean people have become to each other.In days gone by use to you never had to ask for help,people would just show up and help without having to ask.Those days are gone.
As for his statement of cant wait till all the help is gone he better rethink that real quick like because once it is it wont be safe to go out the door and the ones with stuff will be the target of the ones without stuff.One needs to be real careful what they wish for.

Re: CBO - Food Stamp Benefit Rolls increased 70% since 2007 - will continue growing until 2014
How to I get some free shit. I have never been on the dole a day in my life. I've never received food stamps, pell grants, HUD vouchers, WIC, et al yet I'm stuck paying for this shit. If people had the choice between starving or finding a way they would find a way. I am far from rich. When my spouse and I had our child we didn't qualify for WIC yet we didn't make much more than the cut off limit to qualify. Even if we had qualified we wouldnt have gotten on the program since its not anybody elses responsibility to support our child. My point is we had to get rid of cable, eating out at restaurants, unnecessary driving, cell phones and all kinds of other luxury shit just to eat. If cutting back was good enough for us it is good enough for the leeches in this country on food stamps.

If one can find a central theme of the Occupy Wall Street movement, and its offshoots scattered around the country, it would be this: American capitalism is working for 1% of the people, but the other 99% are out of luck. While the OWS crowd might imagine that this is a novel criticism, blaming the rich isn’t exactly new. In fact, President Obama’s famous line to Joe the Plumber from the 2008 campaign perfectly encapsulates the OWS argument: “I think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.”

You are the one that cant read.No where did I say you took anything.I said you were stupid to not take what you would qualify for and make it easier on your family.For instance not taking WIC if you qualified so the child could thrive better.

Dont you ever jump my shit like I get a handout.I have worked my whole adult life and even now I make enough that I cant qualify for food stamps.If I could qualify I sure would take them.As for luxuries you dipshit even with all my work I still can only afford a mobile home due to all the medical bills we faced when my husband went through his cancer ordeal and has since passed away ,also put 12 years of his life to the military.Also tons of medical bills with a sick child.I have no cell phone and no cable and my last vacation was over 20 years ago..

Illiterate my ass,I have a good education that I worked hard for.As for children I had one and it sure as hell wasnt a bastard you know it all fuck and paid for it completely,also paid for the funeral when she passed away.

I drive a 15 year old car that was paid for when purchased.I havent eaten in a restaurant in so long I dont recall when or where it was.

As for whats wrong with this country...its the retard assholes like you that somehow feel they are so much better than the rest of us and for some reason qualified to pass judgment on others such as you just did me without knowing one fact about me motherfucker.

What family and what luxuries.My husband and my child and my parents are all dead.Yes sir I am living the life of luxury.I am not on any dole and never have been shit face.

PEOPLE LIKE YOU ARE EXACTLY WHATS WRONG WITH THIS COUNTRY.

I clearly started that I didn't qualify for WIC and have never qualified for the dole so why the fuck would you tell me to take something when I clearly started that I couldn't? Develop reading comprehension or don't respond.

And I could give two shits about your personal situation. Learn to channel your victimhood mentality into something positive and you won't be broke. I never wallowed in pity when I was poor. I sucked it up and did something productive with my life. If you take that as me looking down off my high horse on you then oh fucking well. Grow some thicker skin and stop being so self centered. Everything isn't about you up to and including my disdain for the taxpayer funded dole. It is wrong to take what is mine by force and give it to others regardless of how bad off others are. Thats calling THEFT. As I said before, YOU are exactly what is wrong with this country.

When the handouts stop my friend it will be because things have crashed.............. and I can assure you, you will not like what happens when this occurs. Millions of people who are use to getting a hand with things throughout their entire lives are not going to be able to handle being cut off and they are going to go ballistic.

It ain't going to be pretty and a lot of good people are going to pay the price.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 14768454


It is also very disturbing the way so many seem to believe that everyone getting the 'handouts' are lazy, shiftless people who are afraid of work. While some may fit that description, I know lots with lots of money that also fit that description. Many are needing the food stamps and other types of assistance through no fault of their own and it pains me to see how quickly 'have' people dismiss all who need a hand as worthless.

When they are "sailing in the same boat" it might give them a clearer picture of how life ain't always fair and in the blink of an eye you can find yourself losing everything you have ever worked for with no way to prevent it.

Those of you opposed to food stamps, if you eat beef, pork, chicken, eggs, dairy, corn, soy, and many other foods, you are eating government subsidized food as well. These foods would cost much more if there were no government subsidies. Food stamps are our largest agricultural subsidy and they help our farmers, food producers and grocers just as much as they help the poor. The gas you drive is subsidized, and you would be paying the same price the rest of the world pays if that were not the case. So those of you railing against food stamps, you should understand that you are also the beneficiary of other peoples' money. There are no self-made men, it takes a society.
