Food Stamps and the American Dream

After listening to so many neighbors, friends, and relatives complain about the welfare system in America, I thought I’d post this essay. Yes, I’m sure fraud happens, but then there are situations such as this:

“This Is Wwhat Happened When I Drove My Mercedes to Pick up Food Stamps”

Unusual? Perhaps.

But more and more Americans are discovering that being well off is not an American birthright, even for those who work hard and expect that to be enough.
