    They go by income and household members.
    The average household has about 2 kids, 1 or 2 adults.

    I believe that still disqualifies you for food stamps, at $43k a year.

    If anything, there may be an argument being made for potentially lowering the amount of welfare assistance, but the whole petty control issue stuff there is no justification for whatsoever.

    In my state, to qualify for food stamps, at $43k a year, you'd have to have 9 household members.
    Not likely for the majority of people in America.

    Edit: In Pennsylvania that is.

    A national sales tax is easily gotten around by the rich. Just don't buy stuff in the US.

    They also take into account a persons needed bills.

    That just sounds like your killing yourself then.
    I've done the 2 job thing, but if you can't sleep enough, then your a danger to yourself and everyone else, regardless of your consumption of energy drinks.

    They do in my state. In my state a persons foodstamps can change if they move from a $500 rent house to a $400 apartment. Usually they get less. If they move from a $500 rent to a $700 rent they will get more in foodstamps....even if the amount of money they get via thier job has not changed and no one is added or subtracted from the number of household members.
