wee: I wasn't making an attempt at coming up with an actual figure or whatever
wee: We only spend $75 billion on SNAP, so only $4500/year on welfare.
buzzcut73: HempHead:SNAP is run by the Department of Agriculture. SNAP is another welfare program for farmers and ranchers, along with WIC.The problem with that is the money that goes into SNAP goes through the hands of the poor person receiving the benefit, to the hands of the grocery store, and then to the hands of a distributor before Con-Agra gets its cut for the can of Chef Boyardee. It would be much more efficient to give that money straight to Con-Agra than involving all of those middlemen and their mooching employees.
Spare Me: 12349876: wee: We only spend $75 billion on SNAP, so only $4500/year on welfare.With a chunk of that going to employees of multinational corporations that pay shiat.Why can't you left wingers understand a tax is an "expense" to a corporation. Expenses are passed through to consumer. That's how it works, get over it. Add up SNAP, Affordable Rents (Section 8), straight up Welfare and free Obamaphones (just to list a few) and see what it costs the taxpayer. But even further, why is there some governmental central committee involved? You think it's because of some bleeding heart is crusading for humanity, hope and change?/aaahahahahahahahahaha
