EBT lets you spend freely

September 24, 2013 

It’s interesting how the Democrats claim that cutting money from the food stamp program hurts everyone. Yes, we need help for the elderly, disabled and children, but how about the people that abuse it? Come on. We’ve all seen people buying better meats and groceries that we can’t afford.

I know of one woman who bought two lobster tails with her EBT card. One woman bought a shopping cart full of meat for her dog. Guess EBT won’t pay for dog food. Then the same people go outside and get in a newer car than we drive.

See, with an EBT card this allows you to spend the extra money you save for free food to buy beer, drugs, cigarettes, dog food and tattoos. All this is at the expense of the taxpayer. And those who receive all the freebies vote for whom? Yes, Democrats. One prediction I make is that in my lifetime we will never again see a Republican president.

God help this country.
