Should well-off jobless get food stamps? | Cincinnati Enquirer | Cincinnati.Com County Administrator Dave Gully says the countys Human Services employees were upset because they recently were required to issue $500 a month in food stamps to a person who has lost their job, but has $80,000 in the bank, lives in a $300,000 house that is paid off, and drives a new Mercedes. The family qualifies under a special federal category called Categorical Eligibility," according to a memo Gully sent to commissioners. Other local families in similar situations also have qualified for food stamps this way, Gully says. Total Crap. This is total Bullshit.
