Carbs are cheap. That's why some poor people get fat.If I'm going to be buying dinner for the poor I think I should have a say in what's acceptable to buy and what's not. I'm not saying they shouldn't be able to buy steak or anything nice, but I do think they shouldn't be able to buy a bunch of chips, soda and candy. There's an obesity epidemic in the country, particularly among the poor, and I don't want my money to make it worse. With my taxed income I want people to be buying healthy foods that help facilitate healthy lifestyles. If people are really in such rough shape that they need that kind of help they should be more than happy to just buy the things they actually need with it.
healthy food is the cheapest and most can be grown at home or in small community gardens,,Carbs are cheap. That's why some poor people get fat.
It's why our whole country is fat.
If we are to ban high carb foods from EBT, I'd be fine with giving the poor more money so they can afford healthier food. Healthy food is expensive.
I grocery shop frequently but I'm usually not nosey enough to pay attention to what people are buying. Tell us more.
Btw, how do you know what people are paying with? You must be laser focused on what card people are using. Which is a bit weird.
You can't buy fast food with food stamps.The food police is a noble concept but who will enforce this? Additionally, many poor people live in neighborhoods where they don't have access to fresh fruit and veggies. They have a corner mini-mart that sells junk and fast food joints.
Urban planning has exacerbated food disparities in U.S. cities—but it could now be part of the solution.www.fastcompany.com
and if anyone remains on welfare for more than two yrs should be declared a ward of the state and restricted from voting,,
I would wait for at least two yrs,, some people do have problems that they didnt expect and really dont want to be on it,,My idea is that if you apply for any federal welfare program, you would have to get fixed first before getting one red cent. No more having kids you can't afford while on welfare.
Bingo. Junk food contains a shit ton of corn by-products.It really has nothing to do with the poor, it has to do with the Agricultural Bill. It has to do with the lobbyists that push for the interests on the Ag bill, and the stake holders the profit from the Ag Bill.
no because they are saying they cant take care of themselves and want us to do it,,Due process removing their right to vote because they are poor?
You are one of the most stupid individuals on this message board. You couldn't pass my 9th grade government class.
