    1. It costs money to investigate and prosecute fraud. As fraud becomes less prevalent (is a lower percentage) it becomes more expensive to stop. In other words, reducing fraud from 10% to 9% is much cheaper than reducing it from 1% to 0.001%.

    2. The IRS comes up $300B short each year from non-compliance and food stamps fraud is $0.75B each year.
    In your opinion, how much money should we add to the IRS budget to ensure compliance on $300B and how much should we add to the food stamp budget to ensure compliance on $0.75B?

    Well, I have read at different points in time, of the IRS spending a lot of money on firearms. Perhaps their plan to 'ensure compliance' is in the works based on that.

    Lame - as expected.

    Huh? So because some people do live within their means that are on food stamps, then all the rest can be discounted? Fine lack of logic on that one.



    Every day I find a new brick wall around here.

    Yes, I understand you appear to be joining the ranks of those that see a car and a smart phone as 'rights', and are incapable of understanding that it is possible to live life and earn a living without them.

    Of course, the fact that people can freely move about to where there is work, is irrelevant eh? Yeah, don't bother, I've heard the excuses for that one too: 'how can they move if they have no money' and 50 other ones. It's sad and pathetic when people do not take responsibility for their own lives, and do not take whatever steps are necessary to ensure they make enough money to support themselves and their family.
    Are you trying to make an argument that people with cars or cell phones should not receive fed/state food assistance because they have cars or cell phones? Do you have any clue as to how little you have to make to qualify for SANP assistance? We are talking poverty level. Many families still have working members (who need their own transportation and phones for work) but the income levels for that household is still extremely low.

    I don't think you have any clue to the level of poverty that exists still in this nation or the increases that have occurred as a result of this recession. You sound very isolated. SNAP is nearly the last real bit of "welfare" remaining for most households. We are talking about food. It isn't as if we are a rural society where people live on farms, able to grow their own. Get a clue.

    No, you can't. But realizing the strength of the reflex, Samuel Prescott Bush, GWB's great grandfather, was politically active in the Republican ranks at the time and can probably be blamed, at least in part.
