You can google interviews with the heads of DHR or even call them. They will tell you that the welfare system was never meant to cover everything. That's why most are called the "
People complain about not getting enough formula from WIC or food stamps and having to purchase stuff out of pocket but it's NOT supposed to cover everything. You are supposed to still need to purchase items out of pocket.
It was never intended to be the whole grocery budget and quite frankly where do these people get off complaining about something they are getting for FREE on the tax payers dime?
Is it really the job of others to provide EVERYTHING for you? Is DHR not paying for EVERYTHING not an incentive to take a second job and get training for a better job so you can stand on your own two feet?

I am not sure WHY people get so PISSY when people question how those on theses programs use these TAXPAYER funded programs! We have EVERY RIGHT to question and point out to people who dont get it. and the OP makes a valid point. Hey, I was ON FS YEARS ago. It HELPED us get through a really rough time. I have a friend that has been on them for TEN YEARS solid. TEN YEARS. Thats crazy! There SHOULD be more regulations. This is an ASSISTANCE program. To HELP....not to support. And I think if more people understood this AND there were more structure to the programs then there would be less abuse and less lifetime dependence. Those of you that want to make it ok for people to abuse these systems arent thinking. The abuse and waste cost ALL of us and keep help AWAY from those who REALLY NEED it!

Wow...nice language Anons...NO ONE is asking for an ass kissing, but as someone who was ON them I was GRATEFUL not PISSY. I understood that they were to HELP me not to cover my every want and need and I stretched the hell out of them. My friend gets $800 a MONTH. Thats NUTS. And what some of you dont seem to get is there is only SO much money. SOOOOOOOO if SOME people LIE and get too much, OR SOME people get WAY more than they NEED, then SOME people who REALLY REALLY NEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEED the help will be left out in the cold! With NOTHING. But you go on ahead an ASSume that people who question the usage and distribution or just hateful people. THATS just STUPID.
