Are Should We replace with healthy American farm grown food boxes or rations for Welfare recipients

The fact that most welfare recipients eat better than many hard working Americans is beyond outrageous!

instead of handing out food stamps thats used in fraudulent ways,

give them what we give our military members. Good enough for us, good enough for them. Their stomachs will get

used to it and they (you?) won't have to eat them 3x a day like we have.


Alternative to food stamps!    

MRE’s..Nah, These are Gourmet Meals compared to the C-Rations from when I was in!!!
they should get the Old C-Ratio that has a 4 cigarette pack in it.
CRats came with a cigarette and p38 can opener.

MREs or CRats.
This is a terrific idea! Helps the economy and feeds the people without giving them money they can use on non-food items.

comments!

A long time ago, in a land far away, (RVN) our government fed me 20 year old C rations and I survived. Sometimes people need an incentive to change their lives.

Well well well............As the worm turns..........This is what I humped and ate.........If you packed a can of Sterno....you had a hot meal.........

But if it were left up to the Dems they would take the food right of our heroes mouth to feed the illegal immigrants.   :angry:

I still have my p38. I was eating crats in the early 80s. They were canned in 1945. Mres have greatly improved over the years.  :nodl:

I haven't thought about c-rats in a while, lol. Basic training 1983..Ft Jackson, S.C....

But I also remember during the 70s, the government gave out commodities,  like the cheese and peanut butter so many comedians got rich off of in the 80s. Food stamps were introduced as a cheaper alternative. 

And yes, I have several P-38s...

Forcing elderly retirees to eat crap they don't like is just wrong. Why not close all the loopholes and continue as is?

Yep, I agree with this. The bad people always make life hard on the good and honest ones.

The math says NO, we SHOULD NOT.

Current MRE costs (as purchased by the US government) average $7.25 each "meal". (each meal covers 1 day of meals)

Current SNAP (and ONLY SNAP) beneficiaries = 43 million 

You are looking at 311.75 million dollars PER DAY or 113.79 BILLION dollars a year for welfare MREs

SNAP benefits are currently around 145 million per YEAR.

So, NO.
