    Saving Country $3 Billion Annually

    Now, only 42 million are on the program. Imagine. Only forty-two million!

    Reasons given...

    1. shrinking funding for the program
    2. legal immigrants don't dare claim their Illegal Alien household members
    3. some States are instituting time limits on how long one may receive benefits
    4. some States are instituting work-for-welfare programs for the able-bodied

    Theoretically - on paper, at least - some of that actually sounds pretty good.

    Too bad it had to materialize under the aegis of the most mean-spirited Administration in modern history.

    But... what the hell... even a broken clock is right, twice a day... even a mean-spirited, greedy, corrupt, arrogant and ignorant one.

    I can live with those outcomes and driving factors... until the savings get "re-tasked" into the back pockets of rich Republican power-brokers, anyway.

    Yes, it is terrible that wealth distribution is so bad that 1/6th of the country needs to use food stamps to JUST EAT!

    It wasn't this way when I was growing up and people worked one job and brought home good union paychecks.

    Of course, most of the 43 million on food stamps are elderly people and the disabled and children, but man, don't let that stop you.

    Now the Government has an extra 3 Billion to spend on weapon systems that don't work or useless military parades

    As soon as you guys pay for all the Corporate Welfare and tax cuts to the rich...

    Maybe we should make the 1040 elective. YOu still have to pay what you pay for, but ONLY programs that get checked off on Schedule F that I just made up get funded.

    Not enough people checked, :"Subsidy for Big Agriculture"? Well, too bad. But it seem we have more than enough money to fund food stamps because only half the country are racist assholes.

    My son no longer receives food stamps he can not work but can not get a doctor to declare him incompetent. So he has to wait till he is 50 to draw food stamps again. New law in NC.

    so what you're saying is trump got it right but you need to ensure that you stress the fact you still think he's an asshole.

    Wealth distribution, is that liberal speak for mooching off others?
