    I gotta admit I love this idea...

    Most people on food stamps make terrible choices to begin with...

    No more steaks on the taxpayer dime!!! You get a box of gubmint food with some gubmint cheese!!!!

    That's a good thing because some people sell their food stamps/ buying expensive food

    Are you insinuating there is corruption in the welfare system?

    Did a quick Google.

    Estimates suggest that between 1 percent and 2 percent of active-duty military members used food stamps in 2012. The USDA estimates that in 2012, more than1.5 million veterans used food stamps, or about 7 percent of all veterans.

    There’s people who absolutely abuse it and some who are in desperate need of the assistance, temporarily.

    I think they have to implement drug testing for all recipients. Random testing and if you fail, you’re removed from the program for a year.

    $71 billion out of a $4 trillion budget. That still leaves over $3.9 trillion and Trump wants to keep spending.

    You are correct...

    The coming debt crisis will be worse than the great depression. My estimate is 2030 for US default and the depression that follows.

    Japan has shown the ability to sustain 200% debt to GDP ratio and the United States probably could handle up to 300%.

    Its the interest rate rise that will make 2-3 trillion dollar deficits per year....

    This box thing seems reasonable. I mean, box provided at cost plus overhead seems like a good deal. Should be able to provide even better food with this method.

    What are you talking about? Soda and Hot Fries is a good meal. The small market that will give cash for charging an entire EBT card. Free market will be gone. Porch thiefs will be starting their own stores with government grape juice and cheese.

    Expand the Federal bureaucracy with a new food distribution program? I worked for the Feds; efficiency is not their strong suit. Sounds expensive; I'm out.

    This is the one thing they do right:

    I got my hands on some ten years ago and have been chasing that dragon ever since. Government Pork is like nothing else the private sector has to offer. Contains big chunks of perfectly firm pork that you would have to be told comes from a can. I will pay $20 a can, if anyone has a line on these.

    Simple urine tests aren’t going to work. They have random testing at wal mart your telling me none of the employees do any drugs?? This will cost tax payers lots of money to catch very few.

    I think it’s coming sooner than that. It’s inevitable, either the federal gov will default on its debt or the fed will “print” the dollar to death. The latter being the worse outcome. A default and subsequent depression is what is needed for the economy to heal. A lot of short term pain but better than inflating you currency to death. Wait till interest rates are at more traditionally normalized rates(6-7%). Buy bullets and gold.
