Food stamp loopholes are rampant — here’s how to fix them
There are currently more people on food stamps in the United States than the total population of Canada. This explosion in welfare dependency did not happen by accident, and despite current record-low unemployment and millions of open jobs, welfare enrollment remains at a near all-time high.
Even worse, much of the welfare expansion has been to able-bodied adults, many without kids. There are nearly 21 million able-bodied adults on food stamps, nearly four million of whom are younger than 50 and have no kids at home.
