    Sure would like to give both of the above issues a solid try and not just discuss it and guess at whether it would work or not.

    It will not.
    Just like getting rid of law enforcement because there is abuse in that system would end crime.

    You find a system that people can game for and advantage and I will show you a system being gamed.

    We can disagree.
    I would still like to see an alternative to food stamps.

    Sounds like another thread started to slam the current administration. Just Plain Stupid to me but I bet if it was the chosen ones admin who came up with this it would all smiles and happiness.

    In our democracy, there is nothing wrong with criticizing or supporting an administration. The fact that after looking into a proposed policy change (replacing foodstamp with a bag of food) I disagree and you agree with our president, it is a healthy thing. Nothing stupid about it, Sparkly.

    Jack Kemp came up with an idea that sounded somewhat like this years ago. Personally, I saw some merit to having basic foods (Milk, butter, lard, flower, beans, and eggs) available free to everyone.
    Edit: I will say that I think Mr. Kemp's motive's were different that Mr. Trump's.

    It would greatly reduce nutritional hunger. It would not end fraud and it would not work for everyone. Try making something to feed someone with those ingredients if they are allergic to milk, and gluten.

    None of us like waste, fraud, or abuse.

    If you think that if we do this we are going to get rid of waste, fraud, and abuse you are wrong. You are just going to change how it is done.

    And as typical with you. The article doesn’t say it is replacing food stamps with this program. That is Just Plain Stupid irresponsible posting.

    "Replacing food stamps with a bag of food"?? That is kind of pushing a false narrative. The way Eye read the article is that family's would still get there monthly allotment of food stamps, minus the cost of the box of healthy foods they receive. So saying food stamps will be replaced with a bag of food has a lot of falsehoods to it..

    As the article states those are issues that would have to be dealt with Why not try something different If it works great. If not can it.

    Not at all. Post another article on the subject if you would like.

    Try to avoid one with a lot of shiny objects. Mr. Trump is a master at using those to get what he wants.

    I've baby sat for a couple that went out drinking and tried to pay me with food stamps. It seems if you have money to go out drinking, you don't need food stamps.

    Buddy's family he married into, they tried to sell him bridge cards to get money for some new tats. It seems you have money for tats you don't need food stamps.
