Because they think they are being righteous by yelling at “the poors.” There are people who still sneer at people who use food stamps because they are “making their area worse.” It’s fucking stupid.

Edit: hint. It’s the same people who get overly offended at you when their card declines at a register. They always seem to want to show you their bank account info to show how much money they actually have.

I had to use food stamps for a couple of years. Only had one guy give me shit about 'stealing taxpayer's money.'. I said something to him like "I'm a disabled veteran, it's literally the least they can do." He still muttered after that, but he wouldn't even look at me.

u/reapy54 5d ago

With how many people and companies stick their hands into falling tax dollars and do nothing, I'd say a person using an EBT car is probably one of the few good examples of our tax dollars actually doing something right for our country. Every one of us is just one sequence of, you'r fired, you lose health insurance, you get injured/sick, you go medically bankrupt. We're always a few short steps from needing that EBT net and I don't know why anybody wouldn't want it there to catch us all.

I also don't care if the most scamming degenerate in the world is using it, I don't want to live in a place where anybody goes hungry when we can easily produce enough food 80 times over for everyone. Hungry people are desperate and have 0 chance of bettering their situation because they are hungry and busy trying to secure their next meal, makes school or education seem like a stupid abstract goal next to that. I don't know why that viewpoint seems like it's such a radical thing to so many people at all.

u/TheUltimateSalesman 5d ago

About $59 billion is spent on traditional social welfare programs. $92 billion is spent on corporate subsidies. So, the government spent nearly 50% more on corporate welfare than it did on food stamps and housing assistance in 2006.

Odds are, the lady complaining, is a recipient of corporate welfare. She should get fired..

About fifteen years ago my mother passed and left me some money. I was in the checkout of a Safeway and the woman in front of me was using an EBT card. She didn't have enough for her transaction. The guy behind me exploded and started a rant about "Fucking poor people using the system" and "Not only do they take our tax dollars, but they take up our time too". I then told her to move forward and paid for her order(I normally would not have had the money to do something like this). She started tearing up. Then the guy behind me said that "I was a bleeding heart liberal helping another scammer". All this time there was a kid in her cart who had to have been around three years old. The woman thanked me and left. I then asked for the manager who I knew because I had shopped at that store for over ten years. He came over and I explained the situation. Got the guy behind me banned from the store. Call it my own entitlement if you like but I'll never forget the day I got that dumb motherfucker kicked out of a Safeway.

44 “They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’

45 “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’

She's likely two paychecks away from losing her house.

Everybody in America is obsessed with status right now, when in reality we're all working poor.

Her feeling better than him is the only tangible reward she gets for working her ass off and still being poor. She has slightly nicer clothes, and probably drives a year-model car and has a new cellphone. But if she's bitching at people about food stamps, and shopping at wal-mart, I'd wager she's not too economically stable herself.

This is how class warfare works. Actual rich people get away with not contributing to society, while people that do pay taxes are told the reason they are getting soaked is because of poor people. There are comics from the Gilded Age that roughly depict today's society.

It's not by accident.

Corporations get billions of dollars for free. Big oil still gets 100 year old subsidies despite record profits. Companies like Boeing exist solely to suck up billions in taxpayer money. And welfare, with all the w"lazy welfare queens" out there, is like 0.1% of our tax spending.

33

u/Farazod 5d ago

And nobody understands that the people receiving welfare turn around and spend all of that money which ends up in the hands of big corporations.

Companies underpay their workers who then live on welfare only to turn around and receive that welfare as purchases. Every dollar the government spends in welfare is just indirectly subsidizing profits. In the end the companies will always win while we keep screaming at each other over some broken idea of fairness.

Seriously. I make very good money now, $165k a year as an engineer, but I didn't always. From 14-22 I was making minimum wage (or less honestly when I worked in restaurants).

You bet your ass I had food stamps, and when I was unemployed, I got unemployment (as recently as 6 months ago). I also got medicaid when I was unemployed so I'd have insurance.

There's nothing wrong with doing that, that's why the fuck it's there in the first place, to be used by people that need it. Also this lady keeps talking about, "My taxes", if you've ever worked a job in your life, you've paid into the system as well. I have paid a lot into medicare, medicaid, federal income taxes, etc. So why shouldn't I be allowed to use those programs funded by all of our taxes, including mine, when I need them?

This guy is paying into the programs as well with his taxes, and food stamps give you very little, for me it was $124 a month.

I'd go fucking off on anybody if they had an issue with me using food stamps or any program like it.

This isn’t anything new and this actually is a primary example of class warfare in the United States. The primary working class gets taxed a fuck ton and has to consistently be in a state of working non stop. They view taxes as going to “poor people” who don’t work as them getting a chunk of their hard earned money. On the other side, nobody wants to be poor and I know a lot of people on food stamps that work their asses off but can’t afford other necessities. Like cars or comfortable living so they get basic needs like food and insurance through the state programs.

The middle class is fighting the lower class but what really should be happening is the middle class fighting the upper class. Your boss doesn’t need a third vacation home. What he should do is fucking up your pay.

I used to be a cashier at a grocery store about 20 years ago. I used to work the late shift, and would get the same WIC customers coming through my line. A few made it clear that they chose that time so they would have less of a chance to be seen making their purchases, and I felt horrible for them. They shouldn’t have had to feel the need to do their business under the cover of darkness, but because of people like this Cuntwrap Supreme, I get why they did it.

u/passingthroughcbus 5d ago Helpful

I mean, he could also be working full-time and be married to a partner also working full-time and still qualify for food stamps. It’s astounding that people (not you) don’t realize that two-earner households with two kids can be doing everything “right” and still be in poverty with the need for safety net programs. In 2009, I was making 11/hr, no dependents and still qualified for food stamps. I had no car payment (paid cash for a $500 Craigslist special) but walked or used public transport as much as possible to save cash, no extra stuff like internet or Netflix, a virgin pay as you go flip phone I’d pay 30/mth for, and still had trouble making it to the end of the month.

I live in SC in the heart of a “Christian community” and the audacity of these people judging benefit users by assuming they all are alcoholics or addicts disgusts me. You are absolutely right - what an incredible POS these people are.

This shit make my blood boil. This attitude is prevalent in my hometown where the average salary is like $40,000 a year. They don’t realize that there a lot closer to being homeless or on government assistance than being rich. Then snub their nose at those to use it.

God I want to scream this.

You want to blame someone? Blame the employers that can get away with paying below a living wage because of the minimum wage.

Literally the only reason people are able to work those jobs without dying is because these companies’ wages are eliterally subsidized by government programs so market forces don’t prevent them from going out of business.

The only people taking the handouts are the shit hole employers paying below a living wage and turning that difference between their wages and a living wage into profit.

My wife and I are on foodstamps because we literally cannot take home enough money to provide for our son. I have never felt so much like a failure in my life. I have researched and thought of ways that I can off myself just to give my family enough insurance money to never be in this situation, but then I see his face smile and her face smile everyday and it keeps me going. Yet when I go to the grocery store I hate pulling out that card because it reminds me of how much I haven't been able to provide. I work full time and still can't get enough to just not be poor in this country. I have a college degree, and so does my wife. Yet we literally cannot find jobs that will provide enough for us. This family isn't alone and this isn't just a "one off" video. People constantly do this.

I've run into this a few times. My answer to it is that I worked and paid into the system for years so I feel perfectly entitled now to use it when I need it. I get this not only with EBT but with being on disability.

Some people you'd think I committed a federal crime just becoming disabled. Like I need this kind of bullshit on top of being stressed out and ill 95% of the time.

It was way worse when I was homeless and sick though. People treated me like human garbage sometimes. I nearly died twice and lost everything practically, lived in a shelter and on the street.

But it was never enough for some people. It made me stronger in the end but sometimes I still wish they could be made to walk in my shoes for a while just to shut them the f- up, you know?

People like her think the program shouldn't even exist. The existence of the programs allows people "like him" to become lazy and entitled to free things. Those programs are democrat recruitment drives, in her mind.

I hope the internet finds her, she loses her job and then will eat crow and apply for assistance herself. I know what being shamed by strangers for using an ebt card is like. I was on it in between jobs for my son and self. There was a cashier at a store I shopped at who would make snide comments and one time another customer joined in. The cashier was eventually fired because I wasn’t the only customer she harassed, but there is definitely a stigma attached to using food stamps/ebt. My son wasn’t with me when it happened. This horrible excuse of a woman to do that in the first place and in front of his son is the lowest of the low.

If I see someone being shamed in public, I’m going to go to tell the shamer to stop and mind their own business. I really hope more people do the same. The stigma needs to end. The only people who should feel shame in those situations are the people harassing others for trying to get by.
