    Food stamps are as much if not more about corporate welfare. Why are junk foods covered under SNAP?

    Or.. abolish the whole program altogether. Just say no to welfare.

    I'm moderately concerned about this issue as well.

    I wonder how that would work. The US hasn't experienced full employment in decades. I suspect we would need to address one to cut the other.

    All the best posts in the "why the world needs Trump" thread are gone as well. I'm sure it's just my imagination. :rolleyes:

    What I want to know is why are companies allowed to pay their workers so little that they can be working two jobs and still have a low enough income level to qualify for SNAP.

    It would have to be a measured approach. First and foremost scale back the items covered. Basic food staples, no junk food, no sodas. Start up a new era CCC, you work on public work projects(roads, tree planting and the like) here are your vouchers for food items and a small cash stipend.

    My feeling is that doing away with welfare will induce all kinds of behavioral modification. Most of it positive.

    The wall would be a great public works project.

    Because increasing minimum wage would precipitate the end of society as we know it.

    Let's deport every illegal immigrant in the country. Then take 1/2 the money that these people used in public funds every year and use it to increase the minimum wage. The money can be used to give tax cuts to businesses so they can afford the increase. Take the other 1/2 and put it in the treasury, pay the debt, or use it for the wall.

    Raising the minimum wage isn't the be all end all cure.

    Brilliant: more malnutrition is just what the US needs.

    We have to abolish unions first. Otherwise, public works projects are untouchable.

    But, I like the idea all around. Public works labor paid for on the cheap, labor unions abolished. Win/win.
