    for working people trumps the distraction of worrying about whether people are buying cigarettes with SNAP money. Which is the greater concern, millions of people getting enough to eat or a few who take advantage of the system?

    Whether 1% or 5% are ripping off the government, millions of people need every cent they can get. Republicans want to focus on the flaws of the program so the good is ignored.  Reagan did the same with his search for the "welfare queen." One story negatively impacted many, many other people. Don't fall for it.
