The more I watch the news, the more frustrated I become. Our wonderful government wonders why we’re in so much debt, but yet they continue to spend our money foolishly, day after day after day.
I think they should take a hard look at the welfare system they have in place. I recently saw a story regarding food stamp fraud and it made me want to scream! There are these convenience store owners who will take someone’s $100 food stamp card and give the person $50 in cash. The store owner then turns around and sends the $100 card in to the appropriate government agency and gets full credit for the $100!
This raises so many questions for me! First of all, it’s our money that the government is using for this program. I don’t know about you, but I work hard to help provide for my family. Don’t get me wrong…there are people out there that definitely need and deserve the help. I just think our government should have policies and procedures in place to stop this type of fraud. Am I being selfish or does anyone else feel the same way? Just sounding off…brought to you by Mills Properties Photo courtesy of Thought Mechanics
