CindyM 2 years, 9 months ago on Group puts 'food stamp budget' to the test

The whole panel test thing to me was totally unrealistic. Made it sound like only homeless people with no way to cook or store food are on food stamps. I know hard working people with full time jobs who qualify for food stamp assistance. They are the ones I do not mind helping. Unfortunately there are too many people who abuse and take advantage of the system. Also, where did the panel get the idea you could not have a Starbucks latte or go out for beer with friends if you were using food stamps? People on welfare don't do without much. They seem to have no problem affording cell phones, lap tops, cigarettes, alcohol, and drive nicer cars than me!
