The very least government can and should do in a civilized country is provide food for those that need it. Of course there's some that take advantage, however the good outweighs the bad here. People get in binds, sh@t happens and they need food. The local church or donation food pantry doesn't cut it much of the time. Anyone who thinks that churchs and private donations are enough to feed those in need need to stop reading Ayn Rand bull****e.

SNAP is meant for people with a real need. not for people that has a decent job and can afford food.
a single person can live very well on 25k a year or less. I know I did it.
if you have a family I hope that you planned that out and made sure that you could support your family. I do. I am the only one that works in my family. I don't get free hand outs.
which for a family of 4 is 2552 a month which is about 30k a year then sure come on down.
no one said every person that is a strawman argument or an appeal to emotion take your pick.
the fact is there are more people on food stamps. that requires other people to pay for it. It is taking away from those that really need the program.
PS anecdotal evidence is not evidence.
