I don't have a problem with Food Stamps and feel that it can be a good program that benefits a lot of people. However, yesterday, I stood behind 3 women in line at Sam's Club with a cake that was 3 feet x 1 1/2 feet with Hello Kitty decorations.

$60 dollars...and she paid for it with a SNAP card. $60 dollars! This just chaps my butt. This is just wrong and a bunch of ***!

There is something wrong with the system when money designed for food for a month can so callously be wasted on a $60 cake. It probably would have not bothered me had it been a 20 dollar cake but $60 just blows my mind.

People have nothing better to do. Focus on your self.

Maybe her child has had a difficult year. Maybe the child just went into remission or maybe her father died.

Point us you have no idea what is going on in other peoples lives and feel the right to make assumptions. Worry about your self.

I don’t know you but I do know that you have no idea what you are talking about nor the circumstances that happened before or after this purchase.How dare you assume that because a person receives benefits they don’t work. It has been a requirement for years now just to be eligible.

The pure ignorance of this post is amazing ,btw did you know that some Mother’s actually “SAVE UP” to prepare for special events like birthdays for their children over the course of months ? Also, since they work don’t they pay taxes too?

It’s not your business how much her cake cost or what method she used to pay for it. Get a life.

You are wrong there. When you pay taxes for these programs and they use it to buy expensive cakes rather than healthy food, they have every right to complain.

The OP works may not be able to afford a $60 cake.

However these people who do not work use his or her hard earned money to buy cake.They are buying the cake with his or her money. That being said they have every right to complain.

Their super-sized rear-posteriors are the result of an overabundance of food stamps.

They have every right to complain. Their tax money goes to food stamps.

If people abuse the program he has every right to complain. Do not see why they could not make their own cake or get something cheaper.

When did we stop celebrating birthday because someone is poor? You have every right to have a celebration with cakes and ice cream for birthdays, Christmas, anniversary, etc.

Do you not know how to read? Nowhere did they say that the child should not spend their birthday because they are poor.

The issue is spending $60 on a cake rather than healthy food.

The cake is not the issue. It is abusing the program and spending $60 rather than $20.

That is horrible. Yes food stamps are for healthy non junk food purchases.

But a birthday cake is not like a dounut.

It is food that aides in emotional support. Would you like your birthday forgotten?

You really need to learn how to read before commenting. No one has an objection to celebrating the birthday with cake.

The issue is paying$60, basically 80 percent of what is given on a monthly basic to buy cake rather than healthy food. If they spent $20 no one would have an issue.

You’re an idiot. That isn’t “abusing” the system when they ALLOW you to buy a cake with food stamps.

What are you gonna do?

Call the food stamp office and tell them you saw someone buying something that is covered by food stamps? You’re a moron if I have ever seen one lmfao.
