Yeah this is how I feel as well.

Really? Really? Really?

You conservatives are a piece of work.
So I can't go to the grocery store because I am "rich"? My trust fund pays for my plane. I earn money from my job for the other things. Like.......................food. From the store. Where I see abuse daily

I go to the grocery store 4 times a week and I have only seen food stamps used one time. I have been grocery shopping for over 30 years.

BUT, there are some always want to exchange their food stamp for cash so that they can buy drugs.

You only get a limited amount of money to spend on food so who cares what you buy? People on food stamps can not win if they buy expensive food they get slammed for it if they buy junk food they get slammed for it.

Good luck with that.
You're a wage earner. You don't have anything leftover to redistribute.
