I would like to respond to Barbara Butler’s letter on Monday regarding the cutting of food stamps. It is a shame that a veteran that has served this once (and hopefully can be again) great nation such as yourself can only receive $16 per month.
I know healthy, young, perfectly capable individuals that get hundreds of dollars in food stamps and even more in other government welfare dollars. These people do not work at all and do not want to work. The money is spent on beer, wine, steaks, tobacco and new clothes. It makes me sick.
Why can these food stamps be used to buy these types of items?
