The Muthaship: They do not.  They use it for staples, and only until they get back on their feet.  You shut up, meany!

Even if you are correct, office supplies are not a product intended to be purchased using government assistance.

Tat'dGreaser: Because People in power are Stupid: Somehow the recipients are to blame for this and not the wildly incompetent  FIS.

Yea if I found out I could use it to buy guns, booze and porn then I'd go buck wild.

But why not guns? They can use them to fish.

Here's something that this thread has taught me: all recipients of food aid are unemployed.  That is a new one.

clane: When Democrats are in power they make more and more and more laws regulating and restricting and taxing that prevent business

[] SUBWAY Founder Slams Regulations: 'If I Started Today, SUBWAY Would Not Exist'...
[] Home Depot Founder: I Couldn't Start Home Depot Today
[] Staples founder: Obama doesn't get it
[] Too many rules are killing America | Fox News

So rich people don't like the guy who wants to increase their tax rates? That's some downright hard hitting investigation right there.

And this is why the USA is circling the drain, in debt up to its eyebrows. When you buy votes with EBT, you get corruption at every level and an intractable debt problem.

Liberalism is a mental disorder caused by self-pity.

The government wants to give them consequence free money, that is what people are going to do. They just want a hand out and will find any loophole they can to exploit it. None of this is new though. This information gets passed down from welfare mom to child and on and on. They know how to buck the system before they can speak.

mike_d85: I had a freind that paid his rent in food stamp purchases. He was a single man getting stamps for a family of 4. Not a deadbeat, just a clerical error thief.
