What does that have to do with the op???
Infants aren't eating the candy & pop. Mom and dad are and they're eating it at my expense.
I've noticed now many of the fast food restaurants have signs saying they accept ebt. As do the gas stations.
The abuse of this program has gone to absurd levels.
I personally would take it one step further than the op and restrict purchases of steak, lobster and other premium foods.
The candy and pop kind of thing doesn't bug me so much as it does what they buy with cash. After the SNAP's stuff is paid for they get a bill for well over a hundred bucks for dog food, alcohol, cigarettes and so forth. I would like to see a law where you can only use SNAP or cash. If you use SNAP, then all items have to be SNAP items. If you want to buy all that other junk, go shopping again and get it.
We make it so convenient for them, as if they're exhausted from their jobs or something.
