    Your ability to PUNISH the few is only surpassed by your ignorance.
    There are limits to what those cards can be used for.

    As I pointed out that is not correct. The law puts limits, but there are those that don't obey the laws.

    There will always be cheaters, but Trumps plan is sickening considering the money he has wasted on weekly vacations.

    Why donít you complain about that?

    How many children could we feed with those millions?

    And,yes there are exclusions. We do have computers today,you know.

    The logistics needed to distribute these so-called food boxes would be monumental.

    There are already food distribution centers already up and running...they are called grocery stores.

    Baron used 58 million in tax dollars to go to school in NYC. How many school lunches would that have provided?

    There are zero provisions for delivery, the boxes will be shipped to a depot in a state and it will be up to recipients to figure out how to get to the depot and get a box to take home. Disabled and home bound, too fucking bad, no car to get there, tough shit, take a bus if one is available, unless you live in the country, then fuck you, you are a moocher and deserve to starve in any case.

    What needs to be done is to change the eligibility requirements back to where they were before the recession

    I don't believe the Trump admin cares about logistics or efficiency or savings to the taxpayer...

    I believe they just want to disrupt another govt. program, they know that this would drop a lot of people from the rolls.

    Thx

    This is the problem with Trump. He is not a very deep thinker. He takes what people tell him and does not question it one iota further.

    Trump is that kind of people you think things are as easy as ...if it is said, it is a done-deal.


    Deport 11-15 million aliens. what logistics and cost?

    Build a 2,200 mile Wall...what logistics and cost?

    Pass out food Boxes to 50 million ...What logistics and cost?

    Do you realize that the vast many people who use food stamps do so temporarily after a set back in order to get back on their feet and they do go on to be successful?

    This idea is just so shortsighted. In the past several years we've been encouraging people to use their food stamps to buy fresh fruits and veggies. Now, the idiot in the Wh wants to feed thm processed food that is unhealthy. Many of the people on food stamps are on Medicaid at the same time. Did the idiot think this through? And most are either disabled, elderly or children. The most vulnerable of our population. He's just a sick and cruel bastard. Fortunately, his budget won't pass. But it just shows what mean, nasty piece of work he is. *spit*
