  •  You want to know why people are on SNAP? (4+ / 0-)

    BECAUSE THEY ARE POOR.

    Wages have declined because corporations are holding out on offering jobs until people are so desperate for work that they are willing to work for almost anything and so they take jobs at lower and lower wages.

    YOUR taxes are subsidizing Wal Mart workers because Wal Mart refuses to pay them a living wage.  Therefore they are eligible for the $4 a day for food.

    And Medicaid.

    And SCHIP.

    And Wal Mart doesn't have to pay a dime.

    You want people off SNAP?  

    GIVE THEM A JOB THAT PAYS A LIVING WAGE.

    Simple as that.
