Government Pushes Food Stamps, Won’t Say Where Money Is Going
One reason the use of Food Stamps is exploding is that our rulers are deliberately recruiting as many people as possible so as to get them hooked on free government cheese — or free government Cheez Doodles, as the case may be.

What exactly is being purchased with all these Food Stamps? Our rulers won’t say:
Americans spend $80 billion each year financing food stamps for the poor, but the country has no idea where or how the money is spent.
Food stamps can be spent on goods ranging from candy to steak and are accepted at retailers from gas stations that primarily sell potato chips to fried-chicken restaurants. And as the amount spent on food stamps has more than doubled in recent years, the amount of food stamps laundered into cash has increased dramatically, government statistics show.
But the government won’t say which stores are doing the most business in food stamps, and even it doesn’t know what kinds of food those taxpayer dollars buy.
