    Talking We're the Government, and We're Here to Help... Washington sends $1 to Food Stamp Recipients

    I never thought The Government could do anything right except invent new and clever ways to take our money, while pacifying us with token words and meaningless gestures - but I now admit, I was wrong.

    First, with Obama's $13 tax cut we all might even be able to retire early!!!

    And there's this story: With the $1 extra that Washington food stamp recipients are getting, they might even be able to afford a Junior Whopper... (if it just weren't for the sales tax). Thank God the Government is here to save us from ourselves


    Washington sends $1 food stamp checks to 250,000


    Washington sends $1 food stamp checks to 250,000

    The Associated Press

    OLYMPIA, Wash. The state of Washington sent out $1 checks to the 250,000 food stamp recipients in the state.

    The director of the Community Services Division for the Department of Social and Health Services, Leo Ribas, says the checks mailed Feb. 17 trigger an additional $43 million in federal food benefits. They also connect recipients to an energy assistance program.
    Ribas says the $1 check is a one-time move to leverage the federal money. He says next year the state will be able to trigger the federal assistance through a routine deposit in food stamp accounts.

    Is this the same government that wants to run our health care?

    They added a free asprin allowance to the program - Surely that is a good thing. The evil HMO's won't pay for asprin.
