    Oh and those jobs they "take" are the jobs that Americans won't do because the pay is crap or its too hard. Think about that next time you munch on lettuce, puff a smoke, crunch an apple, or take a bite of chicken or bacon.

    Evangelical Christians have traded in their morality for a lust for power. Never let them pretend they have the moral high ground!

    Before you make statements like that, you'd be advised to know what a person has done in their lifetime. I have picked corn, okra, beans, tomatoes, egg plant, and harvested lettuce, cauliflower, and cabbage, along with digging potatoes. Beans were $0.50 a hamper at the time to the picker. You could pick 5 or 6 per hour and that beat the minimum wage of $1.50 an hour. Now if you got rid of the welfare and SNAP programs and made them workfare instead unless disabled, you'd have the pickers needed.

    Obviously you haven't investigated either Welfare or SNAP lately have you? Here's an NPR article on the subject. https://www.npr.org/sections/thesalt...y-already-work

    You want to whine about welfare queens? Look at the Oil & Gas and other large PROFITABLE corporations, they just got a $1.4 Trillion welfare check. Being poor is not a moral failure, its a failure by society to take care of it's most vulnerable...and your attitude is at the core of the problem.

    According to a recent report from the USDA, an increasing share of individuals who receive benefits through the federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance program, also known as food stamps, live in households where at least one person is working.

    Nearly 32 percent of SNAP households are home to at least one wage-earner, according to the most recent data on the program, compared to only 19.6 percent in 1989, as far back as USDA data is availabe.

    At the same time, a decreasing share of SNAP recipients are concurrently receiving welfare benefits from other safety net programs like the Aid to Families with Dependent Children and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families programs. As of the most recent data, about 6 percent of SNAP recipients are also receiving support through these programs, compared to about 42 percent of recipients in 1989.

    In Feeding America's 2014 national report, “Hunger in America,” it was found that about 54 percent of the households that participated in its food banks and similar programs included at least one person who had worked within the past year. When it came to households with at least one child, that share was even higher — about 70 percent.
