Just read for every poor family that receives assistance costs the govt 60,000 a year. Unsustainable in conjunction with Obamacare and constant foreign wars.

Food stamps have been replaced with a credit-card looking device, so those on public assistance will not be shamed by taking coupons out of a little book at the cashier, same as a debit card.
Since the hurricane, debit cards and checks are not being accepted in a lot of places, so I expect a lot of anger to boil up real soon. I'm really surprised mayhem has not begun.
Where are Al Sharpton and Jesse? Oh, right, those were white people who had their homes washed out to sea.

There's plenty of room for all God's creatures. Right next to the mashed potatoes!

Credit cards work in NJ, but the banks , which are in power-down, cannot access their own databases, so no debit-food stamp cards. No checks either.
Being older and wiser, I keep about 6 months of expenses in cash squirreled away in various places.

Last year the Evangelical Lutheran Church provided direct financial aid either in the form of food coupons or cash to the tune of 7.5 million euros.

Wow, I'm not aware of the church doing that here. Food coupons yes, but not cash.
