well shit, codes dont work in titles?
Lol they know ppl can't buy frivolous stuff with food stamps, right?
It's just.. food.
Lol Trump is pushing socialism now
you call people autistic? it's a cliffhanger i know it's true boo boo beep?
TANF allows cash withdrawals on EBT benefits. Then you can use the money for anything.
Are they talking about switching the TANF to the box delivery? That would make sense then.
And I thought the TANF was only done for the poorest of Poors.
I'm actually kind of surprised Obama did not think of this.
This is actually brilliant
I dunno. Personally I've seen people in DC and Norfolk use EBT to buy cigs and beer. No one cares. They don't get reported and even if they did, nothing happens to them. There are other reports in where TANF benefits were withdrawn from stripclub cash machines. So -- don't think they are actually buying milk which will feed them the next morning.
If they need money for food then let it be food. And yes they can buy lobster and filet steaks. It's a food item. I think only recently they banned soda but people can still buy junk food and junk food is more expensive. It's all about controlling waste. It sucks that the Fed now has to micromanage the spending which I am totally against. But you cannot kill the TANF/EBT program. I mean they could restructure what could be bought like only fresh/frozen vegetables which are cheaper than premade meals but how far down the rabbit hole must one go. It's quicksand, the more you struggle to fix it the more it pulls you down.
Obama never cared about anything but votes.
Ship all the nutella and pickles to the poor so that the supermarkets have more room for my Oreo Os
Frankly, you could say that for any politician, but Obama is reputed for his socialism, in terms of public image. Whatever or not Obama truly does care about others is debatable though.
The DNC only gives out/cares about benefits when it's voting season, it's simple pay for votes scheme. All the other time, they couldn't care less about the voters.
Another step closer to socialism.
My understanding was that TANF was supposed to be used to cover things like diapers, toothpaste and toilet paper. I know when I worked as a cashier at a grocery store, I saw some tweaky bitch (in a dirty old fur coat lol) use her EBT card at my register, get cash out, then go n buy cigs n lotto with it at the counter. The system at work
However, don't know if the box delivery thing would work either, because 1. Gubmint isn't much good at organizing the little details (ppl would get forgotten), 2. They'd have to hire drivers, sorter, etc, which means way more money logistically, and 3. Unless they let each family pick their delivery type n time ppl are gonna get alot of shit they don't want stolen from their front porch.
This thing and what you are proposing both sounds very similar to the WiC program, which is for pregnant/nursing mothers n families with young kids. It can work but it's gotta be limited.
Yeah, sure. I don't really expect either parties to really care about people.
No matter who you vote for, they are not legally required to do their campaign promises, and frankly could care less about you when elected.
And even if there are those who truly care about their voters, they're most likely to be fucked over.
TANF stands for Temporary Aid for Needy Families,it only goes to parents with dependent minor children in the household,whether coupled or single. it is VERY limited and very difficult to qualify for,and is independent of the foodstamp program,even tho it happens to use the same card,it's still a separate program. Kind of like when you have a combination Debit/Credit card,its the same card but the associated accounts and regulations/fees/etc. there-in are completely different and unrelated.
Also, ""I don't want to steal somebody's copyright," Mulvaney told reporters Monday. "You actually receive the food instead of receive the cash.""
This and the idiot comments on here are exactly what happens when little richey-rich special snowflakes who never had to want for a thing in their life presume that unfortunate individuals who this fascist system has royally screwed and are trying to eat off of literally $2/day are "abusing the system". Fucking Morons.
oh,and on a side-note: the allusion of the "unique idea" to the proliferation of microtransactions in video games today is Brilliant and eerily on point.
shut the fuck up, i was there. i used to get SNAP and almost had TANF as well. but i worked my ass off and got off all government assistance and i will be damned if i go back on that fucking shit. also, fuck off with that "$2/day" bullshit, SNAP was giving me over $500 a month just for food and that was over 6 years ago. you're the fucking moron talking out of your gay snowflake ass.
no you're the fucking moron,this isnt the Obama administration anymore,a single adult male gets less than $100/month if they arent lying their ass off about their living situation,so fuck off and die,poser.
Most people don't get that, since yeah, its kind of a shit show and easily abused.
The government consistently rates a D- at best in all it's efforts, so I dunno why their choices in food would be any better.
Get a job fucking hippy
you sure do bluster a lot kid. When were you first diagnosed with autism?
lol i'd love to see one you privileged little faggots try to make it a week being homeless without mommy to bail you out,but it's all good. I'm not ashamed i fell on hard times and had to trudge the dark side of "society" its a very sobering experience,really puts things into perspective.
like how many think that you just signup and get a free smartphone,more funds than a minimum wage worker,etc. just bc the privileged media darlings claim it's so. Alt-Right,indeed...
*EBT to this guy*
"Please don't sit here."
BAHAHAHAHAHAHA you were a faggot bum who sucked dick for food.
Yeah,in a nutshell,such a progressive,equality filled society,full of "NIMBY" types. lol
oh well,couldve been worse,i couldve wound up one of these failed abortion sperglings downvoting everything someone posts bc they dont have the balls to post themselves. xD
