What do you think of it?

Watching the news this morning and one woman's food stamps are getting cut from $91 to $15. I couldn't imagine being in that situation.

I think it is ultimately going to hurt the families who need it the most.

Me too. They were interviewing people at this Christian food bank and this one woman has no clue how she's going to get enough food on the table but she tries to get the most expensive things like meat from food banks and buy the cheaper stuff at the store

Thats sad. I am glad I didnt see that. I have honestly seen people with kids who need them to feed them kids and get by. Then I see these sorry ass people in similar situations getting stamps and selling them, buying for other people, and thats just being down right wrong. Youre suppose to buy your kids and family good healthy food to eat. Not sell the damn stamps for clothes.
