Probably because when people go to apply for medicaid and food stamps someone is paying for it, yeah the government gives it to those ‘IN NEED’ but its the tax payer who is paying for it out of our hard earned money. When I think of someone who needs to get food stamps I’m thinking of a person who doesnt have enough money to buy things that are of nessity. If you can afford the nice things you are refering to then maybe you had no business living off the government and if you were able to buy these nice things then were was the money comming from? WELFARE are for those who are in need who cant make ends meet. Just my opinion, Not out to offend anyone!
