I don't get it...

I know someone on PA, who was telling me how they went and stood in line for WIC and food stamps. Saying they have no money, but it doesn't stop them from eating in resteraunts or going to bars. I am all for people getting the help they need, but it's almost like it gives (this person) extra money to spend elsewhere. Kinda makes me mad.

  • I see where this is going.


    If you don't think they need the help through PA and they seem like they are abusing it, then report it. Otherwise, quit complaining, it's none of your business.

  • It happens way to much. This is a dream Obama is trying to fulfill. A world of couch potatoes who want everything given to them on a silver platter. If they can twist it or abuse it without fear of some penalty they will continue to breed nothing but more couch potatos sucking the life out of the hard working Americans.

  • Then report them!

    I'm sooo sick and tired of seeing people bitching on here about how they know for a fact that people abuse the system because they know 3 or 4 or more people personally who do it.

    Does it not occur to you that be not reporting them you are contributing to the problem rather than the solution??????????

  • Report them if you feel they are abusing the program...if you can't do that then you just need to be quiet about it

    If that many people know three of four people who abuse it, that is certainly indicative of a problem.
