Food Stamp Fraud - No Surprise

The amount of federal government tax payer money spent on Food Stamps has increased dramatically, as directed by Socialist President Obama, from around $330 million a year in the period just before Obama's election in 2008 to $858 million a year now.   Obama has made it much easier for his PEEP's to go on the dole and that is exactly what they are doing.  Of course, with this increase has come a huge increase in fraud.  Gosh what a surprise. 

Trafficking in Food Stamps has gone up by 30% since Obama was first elected.   That is, those getting Food Stamps are selling them for cash to  small, primarily privately owned grocery and convenience stores at a discount that are in on the scam.   All of these people need to go to jail; but you won't see the Obama/Holder Justice Department pursuing any of them.  You can bet some of this new found cash is going to buy drugs, liquor, cigarettes and lotto tickets, among many other things than food.  Most important, this money is not going to feed the poor; that is for sure.  Remember, Food Stamps have nothing to do with Welfare payments, or free or subsidized housing.   Those are separate checks or vouchers.   And, poor kids already get free breakfast and lunch at public schools, so their stomachs are pretty full. 

Clearly,  Food Stamps is just another government program infested with waste, fraud and abuse as Obama borrows 40 cents of every dollar spent by the federal government, adding to our $17 Trillion annual debt, with no end in sight, to keep his PEEP's on the dole.   America wake up and smell the coffee.   Obama and his Socialist pals in government are confiscating your hard earned dollars to give to their PEEP's to buy votes.  Socialists don't care if there is waste, fraud and abuse.  They see it as a cost of doing business as long as it keeps them in power feeding at the trough.  It has to stop to prevent the bankruptcy of our country.   WE THE PEOPLE must stand up and say NO MORE to Obama's Socialist Schemes.
