     There have been numerous news reports of rampant welfare abuse due to this 'school supply' program. I have heard that many parents were simply buying a pack of gum and getting the rest back in cash. WTF?????? I am just so DAMN glad that my tax money went to these welfare people getting the new Madden 10 or a new plasma TV. ( sarcasm) IS it any wonder that the hard working " average" people are pissed the FU** off??? No wonder people don't WANT to get off welfare. Why would they?? Have another kid, the eagle shits a bigger check. Our country went in debt up to our eyeballs so these people can get the latest game platform??? Thank you Obama!!!! (sarcasm)

Quoting DAH02:

Wow, where were you ladies when I posted a question about this.  LMAO!!!  Everyone pretty much tore me up with my opinion.   I simply stated tat yes there is some people that deserve and would use it for what its supposed to be used for.  Then there is others that wouldn't.  I believe they should have given out vouchers like a WIC that tells you exactly what you could buy with it. 


     Exactly. They gave out cards, like an ebt or bank card. They could have easily put restrictions on it just like an ebt card, so that ONLY school supplies or food could be purchased with it.
