Should people on PA be able to go on vacation?

I don't mean they just up and decided one day, "hey let's buy some plane tickets and go somewhere!" But i mean they've been saving a little money every month for a long time. Do they deserve it?

ETA: people keep asking how they have the money.

Let's say after all your bills are paid for the month you only have $50 left over. That's obviously not enough to buy food for a whole month so you get on food stamps. So once all the bills are paid and food is bought, where does that $50 go? Let's say it goes in a piggy bank and these people save $50 a month for a very long time and then realize they can go on a vacation. Should they?

Who the fuck am I to say what a person deserves? LOL.... We go on three a year but we are not on PA, even if we were, I would take my kids home once a year. Sorry OP, but I do not sit around and worry whether Mr and Mrs Johnson are being assholes by saving 30.00 a month to visit family or whatever.... I hate posts like these, but I still feel obligated to come in and let people know that if they really care that much, they REALLY need to get a life!

Lol no no no, I promise I'm not that type of person! The thought popped into my head last night and i wanted to post it here because you know a lot of bitches on here are gonna be "Hell no, they need to use that money for food!"
Or some stupid shit like that. I just wanted to see how many actually think like that!

Thats how i feel too, but there are a bunch of lovely ladies on here that think people on PA don't deserve anything fun or good. Just wanted to see what the general consensous was :)

Yes. If I were on pa and busted my ass all year working, and somehow managed to save enough money to go then I would. I think though most of the people who need pa and are working wouldn't be able to though. Not that they shouldn't be allowed.

Why would they need assistance if they have extra money to put aside for a luxury?  I know people who aren't on PA that can't afford a vacation.
