I hear they're taking foodstamps away at the end of the month. Any truth to this? I also heard wic is shutting down.

"Unlike Social Security checks and many other safety net programs that can continue to operate under a shutdown, the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) will cease issuing payments, leaving state governments scrounging for leftover funds from other programs that could be used to pay WIC benefits. Nearly 9 million at-risk mothers, infants, and children stand to lose their government-provided food money should the government shut down, the Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced Saturday.

Other nutritional programs the department runs such as school lunches and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, or food stamps) would continue to function."

While there are a few that have been affected by layoffs and have contributed to the system and deserve what assistance they can get, there are twice as many that abuse the system. All I can say to those abusers is I don't feel sorry for you. GET A JOB! The rest of us did. You can too. You want to keep your assistance, take a drug test, pass it and get a job. I'd be glad to help someone trying but most just expect us to support their lazy behinds.

So you don't believe the USDA? Silly me, I guess we should believe an anonymous poster on a public chat board before the USDA.

Umm not everyone on foodstamps is lazy. I work and get foodstamps because I don't make enough to provide food for my family.

Well folks like you wouldn't get such a bad rap if we didn't get behind bums with government cards buying mounds of cookies, candy, pop, chips and tobacco. I saw a woman the other day who was obviously running a store...probably in some government subsidized housing unit. She had too much for her own use only....and guess who paid for it?

Well it's shut down and they haven't been stopped yet and they are expected to be back in business by the end of the week! If you would think about it for a split second, if the government WAS to shut down, they would cutting their own throats! It's what people call "The Knock Down Affect" or "Domino Affect"! Say it does shut down, well there goes national parks, then there would be no reason for tourists. Then businesses would shut down and what's the main thing that businesses in places like Gatlinburg Tenn, Staten Island and Ellis Island NY, not to mention the 9/11 Memorial depend on? The tourist dollar! Without the tourist dollar, businesses in these tourist attractions would shut down and so would the government! As would airports and train stations and taxi services also! So you REALLY for a split second think the government is going to shut down completely??? If you still say yes, then you're a bigger moron then anyone thought!!

I forgot to add that IF it did shut down completely, it would send us right back into another depression!! And do you really think those money hungry bastards are going to let happen? Ummmm no!

I hope you never have to use them!! I am well off and would never make a statement like that!!! Food Stamp program is probably not hurting you at all. Now if you make $75000-$100000 a year you may be paying more than your fair share..I don't look down on others that have to use food stamps. They have to be processed in order to get them.. If they meet the requirements, they get assistance. Simple as that. Now if you put everyone on the streets without anything, You will have a terrible time of controlling them( RIOTS). More crime and ect. Jobs today are hard to land, and with the shut-down going on its going to be harder to find a job that pays better than Min. Wage. Should be looking at the SCHOOL KIDS RUNNING THIS GREAT NATION!!!!!!!!!! I guess, by your way of thinking that you are a Republician...If I am right on, get a life and worry about yourself!!!!! I'm sure you are not perfect, but if you think you are. Your in the wrong business, you should be at the Top looking down, Not the bottom looking up. Get Real, we have a lot of problems to solve rather than picking on food stamps...Yes, the WIC program could be affected in time..Write your leaders and demand that they go to work for the people of the nation, and stop this SHUT-DOWN

I am a real democrat who thinks that the days of big government should be over. Welfare reform is a must. We need to mandate work for able bodied people getting food stamps and welfare. There should be no such thing as a free meal for people who are able to work. The government owes you nothing!
