wouldnt it be cool, if the people who make too much money to get FS, but not enough to live on could buy FS from the government..just think spend 50 dollars and get 120 in food stamps or something like that..plus money would be going back into the government

Just a random thought  lol

People do this all the time , just not from the government. They buy them from the people that get food stamps. My mom use to do this ( I know it's VERY ILLEGAL) ... But that's neither here nor there.

Yeah it would be nice , I guess that's why it's not possible. :-)

Yeah or lower the price of groceries. $4.00 a gallon for milk is insane.

Actully it used to be that way..You had to pay to get your food stamps...It was about 1978

you can't really buy them off of people anymore.. they don't do the actual stamps anymore.. its a debit card.

I've noticed alot of people who do get food stamps get too many anyways and end up either obese or selling them. I know that it isnt always the case, but it does happen often. I think they need to cut back on the people who do get them and give something to the people who are barely getting by.

Yes, you can...all you have to do is take the money then give the person your card and PIN.  It'd be nice if it were impossible, though.
