House OKs Bill To End Food Stamp Waivers

Pennsylvania’s  House of Representatives is advancing legislation to stop the state from getting waivers that allow food stamp recipients to continue receiving stamps even if they don’t meet work requirements. Work requirements would now require you to work or go to school at least 20 hours a week. (If you can work 20 you can work 40)

Under federal law, able-bodied adults who want to receive food stamps for more than three months at a time must work in some capacity. However, states can ask the Department of Agriculture to temporarily waive the time limit when unemployment is high or when jobs are tight.

Pennsylvania was among 33 states that received USDA approval for waivers.

The bill is now headed to the Senate. Democratic Governor Tom Wolf opposes it because he believes scums and lazy people should be given free money for doing nothing.

  1. absolutely brother! there are bars in the area that do cash back on food stamps or let them pay their bar bills with it. I know of a few that got busted doing it!!!!!!!!! what gets me is people making it a lifestyle. earns city high school did essays by students to see what little johnny wants to be when he grows up. 70% said be on welfare and get food stamps. thats what you get when you incorporated East Brady into your system. lower test scores and higher welfare usage, and drug problems. stop inbreeding!

  2. I myself have been at DG and Dollar Tree and watched the Case for EBT credit exchange at the checkout.
    Maybe I am jealous because I’d like free stuff and not have to work. If I wear my hat backwards, grow half a scraggly beard and shoplift Walmart would that help?
