  • I don't know how they abuse it, but I think it's dumb that when we were in an apartment we paid $650 for the same thing some chick that smoked weed all day and didn't work paid $35 for.

  • Many people do abuse this, but many people more actually need it. If you see someone abusing their benefits, you can report it. If a person is fully capable of holding down a job and making their own money, yet they prefer to leech off taxpayers' money, then they need to be stopped.
    However.
    I am going to apply for foodstamps because let's face it. Times are tough and every extra little
    bit helps. There is nothing wrong with asking for help if you really need it, but those who don't or who get it so they don't have to work...hell if I saw something like that, I wouldn't just be sitting there.
    And they will look into it, even if you think they won't.

  • Cry me a freakin river...

    It's really hard to fraud Section 8, since they go by your household income.
    Obviously for you, it's not so hard being a total idiot.
