Around 46 million people in the US use food stamps. The welfare program is there to help people who would otherwise struggle to put food on the table for their family. Needless to say, it is a necessary system that aids those who struggle to find work or can’t make a decent wage in their current role. There should be absolutely no shame in using the system when you need it – yet there will always be some people who feel the need to comment on it.
When one dad began to pay for his groceries at Wallmart, he found that the woman behind him took serious objection to the fact that he was using food stamps. what followed was a horrible argument (in front of both of their sets of kids) about the welfare system.
In the video, you will see that the filming starts mid-argument, and so it’s not 100% clear who started it. The woman in the background is saying something to the dad at the counter about getting off the system.
What follows is an awful argument, in which the woman accuses the man of voting liberal so that he can get food stamps. “That’s exactly what you vote for, they give it to you so that you vote that way. I’m not stupid. I have a degree. I’m pretty damn smart,” she tells him.
No matter what your opinion is on people using food stamps, there is nothing worse than publically shaming someone who is just trying to do right by their family. You have to watch the full video to see what I mean!
