    Why don't he sell it and support himself instead of mooching off the taxpayers?

    So the guy is getting about $6.70 per day for food. The article makes no mention of his having any income to speak of, and these entitlements are based on income; not wealth.

    I'd be thrilled to change entitlement rules such that wealth is factored in, but Republicans would have NO part of it... After all, many extremely wealthy people collect all manner of entitlements by mitigating their own income.

    And assistance is supposed to be temporary, so no one should have to sell everything they own in order to qualify. Unfortunately, the end result is that you do have people who abuse the system. However, there is no evidence to suggest that most people do.

    Seems like he's lying about his income if he can afford to spend his $200/month on lobster tails and drives an Escalade.

    Anyone besides me think he should spend some time in prison for fraud?

    If the guy is a crook he needs to be prosecuted. But 200 bucks is maximum chickenfeed, I am much more outraged by these guys:

    Hell, if the guy is driving an Escalade with Calif. high gas prices he's probably paying more in gasoline taxes a month that the $200.00.
    These RW just kill me, it's actually funny.
    He's guilty of defrauding the citizens of California. You think that's funny?
