  1. The right love to accuse the left for the war on Christmas, meanwhile the right is cutting food stamps around Christmas time. The projections by the right is priceless.

  2. It's about time. If you're able bodied with no dependents, why can't you handle 80 hours of work or school a month?

  3. Basically, Trump is just restoring original rules – removing this "waiver" nonsense. Unless you are elderly or disabled (physically/mentally) you can support yourself and family or starve. End these lecherous programs that take from productive citizens.

  4. A good goal is for everyone who can work to do so and be self sufficient.
    The way the SNAP program has been managed is abysmal. Too much to say here.
    Feeding people doesn't have to be expensive or complicated, but the politicians and bureaucrats have wanted it that way. SHAME ON THEM.

  5. How about people listen thoroughly. This does not impact children, seniors or the disabled. I am 150% agreement that abled-bodied individuals should demonstrate some type of action to show they are moving toward self-sufficiency. It is not hard for everyone To gain employment. I have heard this category of people say time and time again "I don't want to work" so please stop acting like the policies are designed to make people starve.

  6. Everyone needs help every now and then but SNAP benefits are not supposed to be a way of life. Throw a apple or pair tree in the back yard instead of all them trees that let of that terrible pollen that a lot of people are allergic to, plant some fruits and vegetables some can be grown inside. You don't have to depend on SNAP for everything. Imagine if all those trees on the streets were mango trees or apple trees, how many hungry people could just grab a fruit and take a bite?

  7. Did these people not hear the party about single people with no children? Stop saying families, it’s misleading and completely false.

  8. How many of these people watched the surfer dude on television use his SNAP card to buy lobster? He used it because it was given to him. He was like 20 years old, smoked pot and surfed all day. Why do tax paying citizens have to buy him food? The misuse of this program has gone on far too long.

  9. Merry Christmas to all of the Trump supporters on food stamps, you voted for this. Republican policy end SNAP to pay for tax breaks for the rich. Happy Holidays!

  10. CUT WELFARE OFF COMPLETELY MAYBE THESE HO'S WILL START TAKING THEIR BIRTH CONTROL. PUT SOME PRESSURE ON THE MEN TO GET A JOB AND OR GO BACK TO SCHOOL!!!!!

  11. THEIR NEED TO BE A TIME LIMIT ON HOUSING TOO PEOPLE SHOULD BE GIVEN 5 YEARS TO GET OFF HOUSING. IN THAT 5 YEAR TIME PERIOD THEY SHOULD GO TO SCHOOL PICK UP A TRADE. THEY REALLY NEED TO WORK ON THAT HOUSING BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE STAYING ON IT FOREVER. AND HOUSING SHOULD ONLY BE FOR UNITED STATES CITIZENS.

  12. Will retirees be able to apply for food stamps? I'm a single, retired caregiver to my elderly father (my siblings aren't involved so it's all on me) and I don't have any money for food after I pay my rent (which just went up again) and my basic utilities and just enough gas to drive to my father's house. I worked all my life and never applied for anything, but now I am in need of assistance. The food bank is not an option since that is over 30 miles away and I can't afford the gas to drive to that location, so can someone please provide any information?

  13. About time something is being done!!! They need to cut welfare as well!!! I was born and raised in the hood..poverty..it should be given to mentally ill and army vets…not to mention I’ve always…always believed it leads to Obesity!!! Just look around..have you noticed these people consider themselves handicapped and unable to work?!? Welfare and food stamps lead to laziness and obesity!! Why?!? Because it’s never their money being spent, and they don’t value the dollar the way a working person would..hence the reason they ship in the same supermarkets as us..yet fill their carts with the luxury items like steak lobster shrimp, cake ice cream , and everything else we feel is eaten on special occasions!! I hope they cut them all off!! Keep mentally ill elderly and handicapped…and if a family with children should need it…it should be temporary!!!

  14. If OUR Government denied Benefits ALL benefits from ALL ILLEGAL ALIENS, NOT only Mexicans but Central americals, China, Russia, Africa, every migrant that's here for benefits, they can FEED their own children! We already have Americans & Veterans homeless with children! We COULD balance the budget more than 5 million. Housing , food stamps etc are for AMERICAN'S WHO HAVE PUT INTO THE SYSTEM ALL THEIR LIVES! # AMERICA FIRST! PFFFT
