    Clearly all EBT users are deadbeats just trading them for drugs right?

    I suppose personal perspectives matter with this. I was a kid in Vermont in the late 70's - early 80's. Back then the Cabot Creamery was this small cooperative of local farmers who made sharp cheddar cheese for the local market. Same stuff as you can buy everywhere today but back then it was super cheap, came in these enormous cinder blocks and, to a young kid's taste buds, was absolutely disgusting! I was always resentful that my parents bought Cabot and figured they were just to cheap to spring for the good stuff - like Kraft or Velveeta. As a recall, government cheese seemed a reasonable middle ground between the two extremes.

    That's not the point. The point is that these people need to be fed, so the government steps in and assists feeding them. So whats the problem if they get sent well rounded nutritional meals? It sounds kind of entitled and spoiled to turn your nose up at government assisted meals, because you don't want to eat your peas. Like I said before I'm fine with the current system, but would be fine with the one mentioned in the OP as well.

    We can start feeding the needy Asian carp. That’s a win for everyone

    You mean the finest yellow American cheese the world has ever known? I have. Late 70s, early 80s. That was some damn good cheese. Came in that big cardboard box stamped USDA, if memory serves.

    This won't work. People prefer to pick their own food items.

    This all boils down to the fact that people don’t need to rely on tax payers to eat. If you don’t believe me, explain the Amish

    Well, my experience with government cheese in the late 80'/early 90's was awful. Came in these big slimey bricks. And I mean slimey.
    Sounds like the 70's cheese was pretty decent.

    Wow... That's fucked up. Those must be some piss poor districts. Every teacher I ever knew throughout the years seemed to do alright.

    Wrong. It's a simple concept, really.

    In exchange for excluding people from land that allows them to produce for themselves, and forcing them to participate in the market to make rent instead, we provide compensation when the market is not capable of ensuring everyone's basic needs are met.

    beggars shouldn't be choosers

    have zero problem w/ this, will also speed up lines at the grocery store not having to wait for cans trying to illegally obtain things w/ Food Stamps or WIC. Not like they give you a book w/ directions and pictures ffs, oh wait

    The Amish are essentially communist communes...
    well that's a stretch but they are their own communities and are for the most part self sufficient as the are stuck in the past

    Defense spending is jumping to $713 billion and you didn't have a problem with it, but for some reason, EBT needs to "make changes to our system?"

    This is a program that actually benefits Americans.

    Sure, do you think people located in a 60 apartment complex are representative of the millions of people who get food stamps? You sound clueless on how statistics work.

    Tell me how you think it is possible to make planning, adjusting for dietary requirements, sourcing, collating, packing, chilling, storing, shipping, storing and chilling or delivering CHEAPER than giving someone (a little less than is needed) money to spend and do make them do those things themselves.
