Yeah, the surfer dude that gets $200 a month and buys a couple of lobsters.

Certainly our average food stamp recipient...

Probably a plant. Wouldn't be the first time for the Right...

I'm canceling employee health benefits at the beginning of May when our contract expires and just giving the employee's an allowance equal to our expense for the last year of insurance. Our provider used Obamacare as the excuse to hit us with about a 35% increase then the agent tried to convince me that was great since most other groups our size was increased by at least 50%. We had a smaller increase because our group had few claims.

My exact words were "go fuck yourself, I'm done". Possibly not my most professional or politically correct moment but I am so sick of this stuff. I didn't work most of my adult life to pander to all this bullshit that seems to be increasing ever year.

Its a lot of expense/work just administering this crap. I told everyone (much more politely and politically correctly) to go the exchange and thank Obama for the great rate they get.

I really like that insurance companies spin this like they don't like the fact that everyone is now required to buy insurance from them. I can't wait to see the annual reports from these companies, I want to see how hard they try to hide the re-DICK-ulas profits they are going to be making.

Perfect example that Robert should love of corporate greed lol

Many who should not receive government benefits, but do, lie, cheat and steal to get those benefits. I think a penalty for willful lying ought be the amount you should not have received plus 10% and the market intrerst rate on the USD.

I'm fairly sure they don't qualify.

They are probably using fake ssns or something similar.

It is really not that easy to get government benefits.

For the hell of it, I filled in the questionaire to see if I would qualify using a single no children and weekly income of $16 per hour (the wage I start my employees at).

No dice on assistance EXCEPT that "I" qualified for a silver health insurance plan through MNSURE at a rate that is less than I currently pay for a single employee's health care.

Maybe I'll cancel the company health plan and let my employees get their own through MNSURE. The law doesn't say I HAVE to give them insurance becasue of the size of the company.

Thanks to ACA, I don't want to provide for my employees anymore- they can pay for it on their own. :-D

I had to look- apparently Food Stamps (SNAP) are income based. I'm not sure about the WIC program.

According to the MN DHS website:

"You may get benefits if you meet the following guidelines:

Your monthly income is within the gross and net income limits. Most types of income are counted. There are many deductions from income that are allowed under the SNAP program. A county worker can give you more information on income limits and deductions.

You register for work if you are asked to.

You provide a Social Security number for each person in your home applying for benefits. Your county worker can help you with this process.

You are a citizen of the United States or an eligible non-citizen.

You do not take part in the Tribal Food."

I note it says "may", not "will", so there are probably other criteria they consider.

I understand the income part- and owning a home probably not affecting whether or not you can get food assistance, but it's a bunch of male bovine fecal material if you qualify while owning a second home AND a yacht.

I could also see getting assistance for a short period if you did have a little more than the "basics", but getting it for years like that couple did is ludicrous. Eat your yacht bitches.

Are food stamps in MN income-based alone or do they have an asset component?

A retired person can be income-poor but asset-rich.

"A Minnesota couple has been charged with taking more than $160,000 in state welfare benefits while living in expensive homes and controlling bank accounts that contain hundreds of thousands of dollars.

"These rich folks ripped off the system," said Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman.

Andrea and Colin Chisholm, of Deephaven received food stamps from 2005-2012 according to court documents despite living in a lakeside home. The couple, who own an 83-foot yacht and a seaside home in Florida had nearly $3 million in various bank accounts according to court documents."

How in the hell does someone who lives in a suburban lakeshore home, has hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash, owns a yacht and a second seaside (it's an ocean, dammit) home in FL qualify for food stamps?!?

I just think codifying a tax in the constitution is crazy. The authority to collect a tax is one thing, but to specifically levy a rate?
