Why don't we regulate what food stamps and welfare are spent on?
I have no problem if you were in the military, serving our country until you were injured. But out of the 10+ people living in the house next door to me, only a few have a job. They couldn't pay their rent and were evicted. When I went through the home with the actual owner (a family friend) it was discovered that there were multiple holes in the wall, for mounting TV's on. I often saw tem bringing in luxury foods, like pizza and steak, also designer makeup. The children and mother( all 4 of them) all had iPhones. Why doesn't the government just distribute cards that let you get 50 pound bags of rice and beans, an allowance of beef, cheese and powdered milk. Tht is all you need to live. They could also get, say, 1500 dollars a month for rent. That way my tax money doesn't pay for them to live better than I do.

People in this country are never satisfied with how poor each other might be.. Sounds like you might have a bit too much time on your hands if you are so knowledgeable of what your neighbors are up to. They might not be the classiest people, but think of it this way- the govt gives them 300 dollars a month to buy food... More
