USDA moves to end questionable food stamp ads after criticism | Fox News
This surprises me. A day after the Obama Administration attempts to remove the work requirement from the welfare reform law they back down on the “everyone go get food stamps” advertisements?The Department of Agriculture moved Friday to "cease future production" of advertisements that encourage people to go on food stamps, FoxNews.com has learned, following criticism over what was described as an "aggressive" campaign to grow enrollment.
The department had come under fire for a 10-part series of Spanish-language "novelas" that trumpeted the benefits of the food stamp program. The radio ads were produced in 2008, but continued to be available for use.
After those ads drew scrutiny, though, the USDA removed them from its website.
This government push to get people addicted to welfare and government assistance just smells like a crack dealer giving some kid his first few rocks for free.
