    Did you see the word "poor" in my statement? Are you trying to be sleazy now or does it just come naturally?

    They might as well be, they are paying for it.

    Here's a fact sheet from the USDA:



    Can you show that long-term dependency on SNAP is widespread? Obviously, the precipitous rise in SNAP enrollment due to our recent recession would skew that number lower, but this fact sheet references 2006 data, so it predates the rise. Seems that most people are off the program within a year. Perhaps your theories about dependency don't hold up to scrutiny?

    Welfare benefits have built in fiscal cliffs where you have to make thousands of dollars more to actually benefit from making more money, this decintivizes working to get ahead because you actually do not get ahead until you make much more.
