Food Stamps are fucking crazy. We should just give people cash. People often trade their food stamps for cash anyway, just at a bad exchange rate. Currently it’s like we are spending $110 to give someone either $100 worth of food or $50 worth of cash. We could spend $110 to just give people $109 worth of cash. How can anyone think that wouldn’t be better? The concept is basically that you can’t trust people to spend money on food. That is a new level of condescension to the poor.
