Democrats love to pretend their bloated government programs are helping the poor. They accuse conservatives of being cruel, simply because they want people to work for their money.
Government programs like Food Stamps, Welfare, Social Security, and Medicaid are meant to help people who are facing real problems. They are also meant to be temporary, meaning that the recipients eventually find good work and get off the program.
All too often, though, recipients abuse the system. They take taxpayer cash, and never go back to work. In fact, they often flaunt the fact that the government is taking care of them.
That is what we learned from watching this video of the “Welfare queen,” who is using your tax dollars to buy her dog gourmet food most Americans can’t afford.
No, I am not making that up.
Warning: Extreme language is used in this clip.
From Right Wing News:
A woman who appears to be using a legitimate Florida EBT card is shown buying luxury items on the money she receives by claiming she is too disabled to work.
The unnamed woman in the video is shown picking up lobster at a local Publix and uses an EBT card to purchase it, all while narrating that the woman behind the counter would have to work for an hour and a half to be able to afford it… and that she doesn’t even like lobster.
No, the fresh caught lobster all the way from Canada was going to be served up to her dog, all while taunting the camera, but showing off her luxury key chains and her two cell phones. One, her personal phone, and two, the “Obama Phone” that the government gave her for free. In showing off her Coach keychains she said that they’re worth more than what a minimum wage earner is likely to spend on a car payment, saying that they probably don’t even have “f**king cars, they’re using f**king public transport…
The website Reddit has been investigating the authenticity of the video and found that if you pause at 14 seconds, you can see that she definitely appears to be holding a Florida EBT card. As well, when she shows her receipt, the receipt lists a remaining EBT balance and F/S total, which stands for Food Stamps Total…
She tells the camera that she is on social security due to depression.
Yeah, apparently if you can convince the government you have depression, they will give you so much cash you can buy lobster for your dog. Forgetting the fact that lobster is not a nutritious diet for dogs, let’s look at the facts.
This woman boasts her lavish purchases. She wears expensive clothes, fancy jewelry, and can buy high-priced food items. She does so claiming she is a recipient of government handouts.
Critics have been quick to attack the validity of the video, but viewers have proven the authenticity of the EBT card. There is a very real possibility that this woman is leaching the government out of big bucks. She is so confident that the government will continue to give her the money, that she can boast about it online.
And you know what? They probably will.
