I was thinking the same thing but didn't want to ask

You do realize a lot of people use financial aid refunds to pay for classes the aid won't cover
some of my friends use it to buy new laptops
some people use it to buy a car
I don't care
If you not one of the evil mutha*&%^$#@Eas in the one percent
Than I ain't trying to stop your hustle

Check your state laws and see
that man straight up told those old people they needed a license
I know a lot of old people now grow small gardens in potted plants
y'all going after ebt dollars?
You are not on top of your political game
the government is taking away your damn rights and making damn sure you can't fend for yourself
Ebt should be the last of y'all worries right now


Pretty much

There is a limit.
 
There is a program. Right now it in the beginning stages and is geared towards the elderly and disabled on section 8.
 
They are helping them own property in nice neighborhoods.
 
My aunt just bought a house in a nice neighborhood for 92k with the help of Section 8.
All she had to do was raise 5k for the downpayment and each month she has to put $100 into an escrow account that cannot be touched. The money can only be used for repairs on the house. (ie a plumbing problem or whatever)
 
I think this a good thing. It breaks the cycle of poverty, locates them to better neighborhoods and they have something to leave to their children/grandchildren.
 
They also had to go to 4 classes to learn how to be a responsible homeowner etc..
 
 
Also it's sad that you all think the majority on welfare are just sitting on their ass. That's so not the case. My mommy works in social services. Many are people with little to no education working minimum wage jobs and need the extra help.
 
Having them line up for rations? Really? You think they get paid leave? Most of them will be at work. They cannot leave a minimum wage job to stand in line for food. Many of them work just like many of you work.
 
It's sad that you all have bought into the elitist view of what welfare is.

they did something similar with a few people I know
except they had trailers and the government built houses on the land
and the people now own the houses 
all they have to do is pay the taxes on them
some people just don't have the means
but we want to cut foodstamps and financial aid refunds
I don't understand black people who want to kick the legs from out under other black people

if you really think about minimum wage 
and think about how much an apartment cost a month
groceries cost
a phone bill
light bill
car payment
water bill (if you have it)
health insurance
day care if you have kids
hell some people just don't make it
they really just don't

and thats what the FA is there for...computers, cars, food, clothes, etc.  it's supposed to supplement what you aren't making b.c youre sitting in a classroom instead of at work.  i don't care what people spend their FA on as long as they're going to class.  

i wish FA/Federal Loans were adjusted for out of state tuition.  that part is bogus.

If you're worried about tax dollars being wasted look up not down

yes. why does it matter to people what others eat. Does it feel better knowing your tax dollars are paying for healthy food? i highly doubt it. and actually alot of hard working, tax paying people are living on fs.
