I am not sure what to think? I am in the process of collecting my thoughts and doing my research and I am dumfounded to learn that 1 in 7 people receive help paying for their food. I wonder if giving more people food stamps will really “lick” the program or create a larger one. You see the government has now started to advertise using food stamps. I am positive that we do not need anymore customers using this program. This food stamp program is already over used and abused to the point where the people who need it can’t receive it. It is embarrassing and not worthy of a promotion budget.
The question I have is why? I think it is important for people to figure out ways to live within their budget. I suggest using coupons, shopping deals, and making choices based on what you make not what you want. I understand that people require help at certain points in their lives and I am happy to contribute. I am however not happy to contribute to people who aren’t attempting to get off the program.
What do you think of the ads… shouldn’t we use the millions of dollars to educate our citizens?
