Feelgood story of the day: Lottery winner still using food stamps because “I’m not working”

posted at 9:34 pm on March 7, 2012 by Allahpundit

Via the Daily Caller, a snifter of civilizational decline at the end of a long day. Granted, $700,000 sounds like a lot of money, but by the time the Democrats are done with their messaging on contraception they’ll have you convinced that that’ll cover maybe five years of birth control. (In fact, thanks to O’s contraception “compromise,” the cost of birth control is headed up up up.)

This is how it starts, my friends. And then, before you know it, you’re handing out Social Security and Medicare benefits without considering the beneficiary’s wealth. This way lies madness.

Aren’t food stamps means tested?

keep the change on March 7, 2012 at 9:39 PM

It’s a stealth “stimulus” program. “Free” money to inflate numbers.

the_nile on March 7, 2012 at 9:39 PM

So the winner is using government funds, when she has her own? Aren’t food stamps means tested?

Sometimes when I go to the grocery store, I feel like I am literally the only person actually using my own money to pay for my stuff. This proves it.

It’s an entitlement…so she thinks she is entitled to it…like it is free gubmint money, her right to have it cannot be infringed.

Another step towards the day when there will be people of learning somewhere, albeit a dwindling number, sitting around, and wistfully discussing a land where people once ruled themselves, and were prosperous and the envy of the rest of the world until they all got so greedy that government had to step in and save them by giving them more stuff in exchange for their personal liberties and they prospered no more.

But, government intentions were all good.

And the people who demanded and got free stuff deserved it, all of it, because, well, just because.

No harm.

No foul.

Besides, Obama was on his fifth term as President so nobody wanted to be called a racist for voting him out of office…so what’s the loss of a few liberties and freedoms so long as government will take care of all of us.

When you consider that so many people who win the lottery usually end up just as destitute as they were before they hit the jackpot, this woman will most likely once again legitimately qualify for her “food assistance” in short order…

TURNING and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;

Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity…

Yes, Food Stamps are means tested … I don’t know how Lottery winnings are “coded” in that state, but in my state they are miscellaneous income , and will show up on State computers.
That woman would not be getting Food Stamps in my state.
Food Stamps are not an unemployment benefit; they are for people to buy food when they have a limited income ; not when they have a million dollars …

Mr. Mike on March 7, 2012 at 9:53 PM

If we are going to pay for those cards/stamps we need to be able to control them more. I saw some gal recently buying crap in a convenience store for a single expensive bottled water and bag over overpriced chips and pull out her food stamp card. I don’t waste my own money that way. Of course she isn’t spending her own money. I guess that is the point. At least it was stimulating the UDF I guess.

Don’t even get me started on the local Democratic mayor and all of his corporate welfare.

CW on March 7, 2012 at 9:53 PM

One would like to think that an individual, who is surviving on food stamps and suddenly found herself winning a $1 mil lottery, would be gracious enough to decline further food stamps and/or other government assistance.

I think it says a great deal about our decline that the outrage here is a woman with (presumably) a bunch of money is using food stamps, not that this particular form of redistribution of wealth is considered somewhat moral (children! widows!). She’s no worse than anyone else who takes what is not theirs from those who didn’t give it voluntarily.

King B on March 7, 2012 at 9:59 PM

A couple of years ago, a young woman ahead of me at Target was purchasing some Godiva chocolates and some kind of frou frou drink, a 4 pack of iced coffee or something, while on her cell phone (of course)…the cashier was about the same age as her, and I could see she was agitated while ringing her up…when I got up to her, she asked me, “Did you see that, that woman was using her benefit card for CHOCOLATE! I can’t believe that!!” . She was really fired up…I was shocked that there wasn’t any kind of automatic denial for stuff like that.

This is already the case. I will not disclose details but I do personally know a few people who get rather sizable SS checks whose net worth makes them 1%ers.

On one level, they did pay in.
On another, the system is a broken ponzi scheme.

Paul Ryan is trying to address this but no-one wants to play ball. And that is fine, but SS will tank shortly and then no-one will be happy.

Sadly it’s getting harder and harder to give a rat’s behind anymore. Time to dig down deep I guess.

I am surprised there isn’t any follow up by the state to verify eligibility as benefits are paid out or is it a case of once you got it the state just doesn’t care?

I was visiting a local small town college recently and they were “recruiting” college students to sign up for stamps. It seems to me that they should not be out selling these programs. I think if someone really needs it then they will find it or get by without it. You made me think of it because a niece of mine ended up signing up and doing as your half sister did.

Sonosam on March 7, 2012 at 10:22 PM

That story made me very angry until I re read it a couple of times. The 11 million was to create a service center and only a portion of those funds where to buy the clothes. It looks like it was about $148K, so divide that by the 400 “dirtbombs” (heh) it comes to about $370 per db. It just didn’t happen that way, but it the whole project is being looked into because there was other problems with over spending/not spending correctly. This service center was suppose to help out about 60,000 families, not sure who was helped,if anyone. Jeez, accountability ain’t that hard, just do it – dear gov.

CW on March 7, 2012 at 10:39 PM

Just the way they want it.

So if she does lose the food stamps and has to sell her new home and pay her bills. She still would not get a job so when she is out of money in very short order, she will be back at the government teat and right back where she is now but with out a home.

If she got a inheritance of a few hundred thousand or a house. Just how many people would make her move out of her parents house that they had for 50 years just to pay the bills or give her eternal support that is a drop in the bucket of the 10K per second that the government spends.

The only solution is to end all entitlements but that will never happen no matter what. There will always be someone at a government teat and someone who will claim if you remove that teat people will die in the street. Add the department of Agriculture to the list of department to end would be a small start.

tjexcite on March 7, 2012 at 10:39 PM

sickening. there are starving people both in this country and all over the world, and she could have used the food stamp money to donate to buy food for them. but she selfishly grabs it for herself…

From the government? Not so bad. From the cartels…a lot worse.

Just another sign of the end times AP. Look around and you’ll see them everywhere.

P.S. I mean end of the world as we know it, not end of the world.

The only solution is to end all entitlements but that will never happen no matter what.

I have often thought that, and wondered what it would look like today. How many people are on these EBT cards, several million right? Take them away and all of a sudden the hidden poor would be seen. I went down a main street at time unusual to me the other day, and the line around the food bank there was amazing, it went for two blocks one way, and four blocks the other. Never seen anything like it. Sometimes I wonder with hiding it,( so easy to load the card and using it like a credit card) the country as a whole doesn’t get the urgency of getting everything back on track. But then I vacillate of not wanting to humiliate the unfortunate, so it is a conundrum.

Actually, she is probably correct. She already paid tax on the winnings (that’s why she has $700K and not $1 million); what she has now is considered assets, not income. It’s a common mistake – confusing income with net worth. Assuming that she is not earning much income on the $700K (if she has it in a regular bank account, the interest rate is probably getting her less than $10K per year), she probably does qualify for public assistance, assuming this is her only source of income. The government uses income and not assets because (1) assets are often hard to evaluate and (2) assets are much easier to hide.

Ah I beg to differ. Appears she already is flat busted!
In a year she will have traded half her bird brain for bigger boobs a blonde die job, and a closet full of naughty monkeys.
Then be back on the taxpayers dime complete with a handicap sticker cause its hard ya know to walk from those regular spots halfway out in the lot on naughty monkeys, best to park in the front half with the waddlers
