Democrats love the food stamp system because it allows them to legally buy voters.
Former President Barack Obama heavily promoted the food stamp program, acting as if it was necessary for the country to survive, when in reality he was using to to secure votes in the 2016 election.
Not only that, but it appears that the food stamp program is being massively abused by those who are taking advantage of it.
In Pennsylvania alone, 64 locals have been charged with welfare fraud and one of them was a heroin addict.
Dana R. Pryor, 25, sold $107 in food stamps on the streets in order to purchase $30 worth of heroin.
Conservative Tribune reports:
But she wasn’t even the only one. According to another PennLive report, earlier this year Prior assisted another heroin addict, Tanya Keenan-Mack, with writing a Facebook post with the headline “My Food Stamps at Half Price.”
“I’m looking to sell them ASAP,” Keenan-Mack wrote, referencing $194 in food stamps that she hoped to flip for $100 in cash — apparently so she could then use the money to purchase heroin.
If you think these cases are unusual, think again.
$187,241 in food stamps, $37,052 in medical assistance, $46,494 in subsidized day care, $11,348 in cash assistance and $5,523 in aid from the Low Income Energy Assistance Program, according to a report from the Pennsylvania Office of Inspector General cited by LehighValleyLive.
“Our investigators are zealous in pursuing all cases, regardless of the amount, because it’s taxpayer money, and stopping fraud means making those benefits available to Pennsylvanians who truly need them,” Inspector General Bruce R. Beemer said in a statement.
This is absolutely disturbing and shows how broken the system is when this level of waste becomes the norm.
Alabama has already demonstrated that you can reduce welfare wastage when you enforce work requirements for those who wish to collect social benefits. A newly enforced work requirement policy saw food stamp usage drop by 85 percent in the state.
Social benefits should be available to the most vulnerable and those who really need it, not those who are perfectly capable, but too lazy to work.
