Food stamps shocker!

So I just finished watching an episode of Steve Wilkos from a day or 2 ago and I was shocked what he said about food stamps!!! He asked one of the female guests if she paid for food.. She replied 'well I have food stamps.' He then said oh so I pay for it?!?! I am very aware of the foodstamp debate! But to say that on national tv?! In reality we are paying about 5 bux a month for food stamps. I was actually on it for 6 months when I was laid off from my job. I was just in complete shock!! Thoughts?

My thought is finally someone says it. Whether it's on tv or not it's true.

Eh. This debate is old and tired. People will always feel some type of way about food stamps. Even on national tv. Watch some conservative news, you'll hear it there too. Steve Wilkos is not the first to make a comment like that

My retired grandfather said the same thing when I told him I would no longer buy all his junk food crap and he had to keep his hands off mine and the kids food. So he still eats the kids food and mine up on us because he thinks it's all his ...And I work and still get food stamps. Some people are just jerk and have no compassion or empathy

I'm not shocked that it was said.. I'm more shocked at who said it.. Steve is usually very nice to ppl, unless you're a child molester that is!
