The more I work and pay taxes, the more that I see the people on welfare driving very expensive cars, drinking booze, buying hundreds of dollars of groceries and always smoking. It seems that if these people were so bad off to ask for help, there needs to be some control of what these people can buy. How do these people get these things if there income is so low? Is this the time for reform ? Please show everyone how this happens.

When I first came to California I heard people talk about getting on "The County" and saw people buying lobster and shrimp with food stamps while I purchased a pound of ground beef with 17% fat. I don't see that anymore. Many kids are in foster car
I have to say Diane. You are right. I've heard it too. They have a radar for each other and know when to apply where for what. I feel bad for the people that really need it because of the people that abuse it.
I hope people who are CERTAIN of fraud taking place, like selling food stamps, report it.
Reporting it is a waste. Nothing happens. They close a store down for fraud an the next week it reopens under another name. They ban them from taking in Food stamps and they do it anyway. You might as well call the police and report a UFO.
Actually I work for a low income housing complex of over 200 apartments. As a matter of fact. most of the day, the majority sit around boozing, smoking and taking drugs, acquired by stealing, then exchanging for cigarettes and booze.
