Should the food stamp program be eliminated due to an increase in fraud?


Fox news is reporting an increase in the amount of fraud in the food stamp program and it is being suggested that we end the program. The problem I see with the program is how money is being spent and how easy it is to misuse the money one receives. For instance in Georgia a person can use their food stamp money in convenience stores. This means that someone is buying items at much higher prices than they would if they were shopping at traditional markets. Is it a form of fraud to misuse tax payer money in this way? Would we allow our politicians to over pay for services or products?
