The country is making a come-up economically, but there are still those that are in dire need. But, you also have those who abuse the system like those folks we told you about out of Michigan. They are both collecting food stamps after hitting over $1 million lottery jackpots. But, maybe that’s what one state representative meant when she recently berated her state’s food stamp recipients that she claimed to help get more assistance.
According to the Huffington Post, Minnesota state representative Mary Franson, took a swipe at welfare recipients with a scathing comparison between “wild animals” that are helped by the Deparmtent of Agriculture and food stamp recipients.
Of course, Franson has already backpedaled and started apologizing for her remarks, but once the internet cat is out of the bag, it’s hard to put it back in. Franson said:
“Isn’t it ironic that the food stamp program, part of the Department of Agriculture, is pleased to be distributing the greatest amount of food stamps ever,” Franson said. “Meanwhile, the Park Service, also part of the Department of Agriculture, asks us to please not feed the animals, because the animals may grow dependent and not learn to take care of themselves.”
