Lol that is right. 15 days to get a job and stock up. Too funny. I'm pretty sure they would rather let their kids go hungry then to actually do some work.

The ones that really suffer are the elderly. They worked & paid in all their lives to get the short end of the stick. My neighbor is 77 & a widow. She gets $16 of food stamps a month which isn't much but she says it helps buy necessities like bread & milk.

That's horrible! She only gets 16, yet these pill heads get a bunch on theirs and sell them or trade them for drugs. Pathetic!

Why won't the cards work? I agree some people honestly do need them. Who said the cards won't work?

i put up a link to the federal document but the moderators keep deleting the comments with the links. it is legit and it is happening.

also. to those of you who love to poke fun at those who are working full time and cant make ends meat because of the economy....all you are doing is showing how ignorant you are.

most of the people who get EBT and medical cards have to jump through hoops while on a trapeze in order to receive them. there are also those folks who are sick with diseases like cancer who qualify for assistance.

if you know someone who is getting help, they qualify. they have to bring in pay stubs and be able to prove they need help. i should know i am a social worker...

and now it will all end in november. 100 million americans will not be able to pay rent because they have to eat. you wanna blame someone? blame your government. your government shipped all your jobs to the chinese overlords, who are bankrupting the country.

i wouldnt laugh because those of you except the filthy rich will also suffer. soon your good paying job wont mean dich because you will be paying out the wazzu for everyday items like gas. get ready...it's not a joke its a warning.

To the idiot that is a social worker. If you really think you have to beg and jump through hurdles to get disability and welfare your insane..my next door neighbor says he can't deal with the public and therefore can't work gets 1400 in social security disability for his bad nerves and 200.00 a month food stamps ..you people are the same people that believe every mother that brings her kids in saying they have autism so they can get a check are telling the truth..

They are ending the snap program which will cut the amount of stamps but they are still being issued. I agree that quite a lot of people abuse the system, but some people actually work and still need the help.

President Obama just announced this evening on MSNBC that as of November 1st the SNAP program will end, essentially taking 47 million food stamp recipients off the rolls. He further annonced that effective on January 1st, 2014 that all "welfare " assistance will be reduced by 50% acroos the board in an effort to balance the federal budget. These policies will remain in place until the effective unemployment rate reaches 5%.

I looked at the msnbc website. No story there about Obama making any such announcement. However, it is true that SNAP ends this month. That was a temporary increase, which is over.

They aren't stopping the EBT benefits, just decreasing them for everyone starting Nov. 1st.
