    Fox fluff piece. $200 a month is nothing, and the cost to police the few abusers would be far greater than the money lost. Don't get me wrong, I don't think it is ok, but what is the resolution? Hire thousands of case workers to track food stamp recipients and waste more tax payer dollars? Eliminate food stamps all together and end up punishing the majority of poor people that really need them? I love how wealthy politicians make it seem the the abusers are the majority, and the solution is so simple.

    Not aiming the reply at you, sandblaster. More of a vague question to the Fox News people.

    No one I know is against charity. Charity is an individual choice and action, often times this is done in a way that "teaches a man to fish". When you get "charity" from the Welfare State it changes the dynamic between recipient and the source of 'charity'. As the $$ destined for "public charity" makes its way through the myriad of committees and "interest groups" and bureaucracies that decide the fate of the funding, it becomes a political issue.
    And after each step of it's journey thru the maze of bureaucracy, more and more of the resource ($$) gets siphoned off by "interested parties" along the way.
    In the end, the person "in need" only gets the crumbs of what's been left behind by the "top feeders".
    What's worse, this form of assistance rarely teaches the man to fish (which should be desired), but more likely only serves to teach the man that he is entitled to x ammount of $. What a lesson eh?

    Granted, the guy's a freeloading dirt bag, but there's much bigger abusers. For starters, take a look at many of our politicians with their perks, voting themselves pay raises, junkets/boondoggles, private planes, social events, etc., all at the taxpayers' expense.
    That remind me, I gotta go work on my income tax. A rainy day and flat surf is a good time for it.

    RATT LIFE!

    This guys is a JO no matter if he is collecting or not, what a hand job

    The bigger freeloaders are multinational corporations with subsidies and tax breaks, amounts to multiple billions. Neither are morally right, but this 'news' piece is a slight of hand....Hey look over at this problem!...meanwhile much more egregious examples can be seen in corpo world

The "blame" for any perceived corruption in a system that is based on theft and coercion should never lay solely on the "lil people' at the bottom who wanna take advantage of it in the short run, but should lie with those who created the system of coercion and theft and deceit (in order to profit and enslave others with it) in the first place.
