yes you can get SNAP usually considered to be separate from cash assistance welfare

I lump it all together, it's all coming out of tax payer money and that was the point.

That's fine and not wrong

SNAP is just way cheaper

Then I don't know if I personally know anybody that actually receives welfare checks, except perhaps the welfare queen who technically can't be a welfare queen if she isn't getting welfare checks. I don't know, I assume she does though.

Well yeah there's a whole lot less of them than our society seems to think

and "welfare Queen" is bad terminology nobody on welfare is living like a Queen

All very true points indeed.

Though, I think it upsets people to see people doing almost as well as them with out putting in any work. So those angry people, who may only know one person who's lived their whole life abusing that system, blow things out of proportion as if it's a much bigger deal than it is. Our stigma on these programs comes more from spite we have for the ****ty people we know that tend to abuse these programs than it does with how much it actually costs us because there is no way in hell that these programs are eating up all our money.

Eating lobster for a day and ramen noodles for the rest of the month with a ****ty Iphone etc. is not quite living like a queen. Welcome to lower class living.

My bad, no one cheats the welfare system and the rich always pay as much tax as they possibly can. Welfare queens and tax evaders are just as mythical as big foot.

I didn't say that isn't cheating the system, just saying it's not that glamorous.

Work as a grocery store cashier and tell me the majority of people on food stamps aren't lazy assholes abusing the system. The majority view on the system has been my experience with tons of people I don't know. I've met very few people who are actually trying and on food stamps.
