It is important to point out that most Americans are compassionate and will always stand up for those individuals who are truly in need, however within the last several years there seems to be a growing and alarming trend of able-bodied folks proudly gaming the system and collecting welfare benefits at the expense of hard-working Americans.
Moreover this Administration has actually grown the “welfare state” to an astounding 41% or more than $193 billion since President Barack Obama took office, bringing the total amount of money spent on welfare to nearly $1 trillion dollars, and far more than the $685 billion spent on defense.
It’s within this backdrop of growing welfare fraud and a lack of a cohesive government strategy in dealing with these scam artists that many grocery stores across the nation are putting up signs simply warning welfare recipients that they no longer take EBT cards, which has some welfare recipients upset.
The signs are being hung throughout Wawa grocery stores in Philadelphia, noting their stores are no longer going to be accepting food stamps.
And one blunt sign was posted on Facebook by Jay McGuire and is already going viral! More than 5,000 people have liked it this week… clearly, people are sharing it because they are tired of welfare queens who refuse to work and live off hardworking taxpayers.
Do you think this store is out of line to put this sign up or is this spot on?
