  1. J gallagher Average American

    The average American vs. the economic elite. Growing up in a home w/2 working parents that struggled to put food on the table ive seen the broken spirits of my parent when they were forced to receive food stamps to put food on the table. I can say first hand how much our tax dollars are being put to good use. Now what i cant speak on behalf of is our hired government & how frivolous there spending habits have become. The numbers are staggering over 50 million 50,000,000 americans are on food stamps to put it in plain view. The average american lives on only about 35,000 a yr while congress (which is the party trying to ultimately destroy food stamp) get ready for this makes 100 million 100,000,000 a year. Thats split between only 435 members that doesnt account for there staff,personal jets, travel expenses, *****PAID MEALS*****, better health care insurance,& retirment or pension which is another unturned stone !!! Think about it with 10-15 million average americans expected to loose there homes by 2014 how can we place another dagger in Lady Libertys side with the reduction of food stamps ? Yes most of the USA's problem started with the housing market but we cant let that be are stop sign when its should only be a speed bump. The average American if polled would tell you they applied for hundreads of jobs to no avail. They dont want Government help but they stare at there children & dont know what to say when asked when will we eat they must run for help. The current system in place takes our goverment an average of 30-45 days (that 135 missed meals) to aprove food stamps then the families must waite another 2-3 wks for a food card. During that time families are forced to visit churchs, food banks, & even elder parent struggling themselves on SSI. If this was to become reality & food stamps were to be reduced or stoped there would be klephtic ca ios. The rich & store owners would see an increase in theft by desperate Americans. The streets would be riddled w/familes begging for food. Health care would be overwellmed with Americans on the brink of death from starvation. Will we have hospitals becoming food banks? We must think of the consequences before we allow congress to take the poor & drop them in the desert with no help while they fly away in there jets? Think about it America & stand up for the truth !!! Take back America !
