    The woman in front of me used her EBT (food stamps). She was wearing a North Face Jacket and her kids were wearing Rocawear jackets. She also purchased a Olive Garden gift card (with cash). Don't forget to pay your taxes.

    Michigan Woman Kept Collecting Food Stamps Even After She Won The Lottery

    (Reuters) - A Michigan woman who continued to take food stamp benefits for months after winning $1 million in the state lottery has been charged with welfare fraud, officials said Tuesday.
    Amanda Clayton, 25, of Lincoln Park in suburban Detroit, received public assistance through March of this year despite winning $1 million from the Michigan lottery in September, the state attorney general's office said.
    Prosecutors accused Clayton of collecting $5,475 in food and medical benefits from August 2011 through March that she would not have received had she reported the lottery winnings and income from a job she held from June through October 2011.

    "It's simply common sense that million dollar lottery winners forfeit their right to public assistance," Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette said in a statement.
    Clayton was charged on Monday with two counts of welfare fraud. Each charge carries a maximum penalty of four years in prison and a $5,000 fine.
    A state court judge set bond for Clayton at $10,000 in a court appearance on Tuesday.
    It was the second major incident in the past two years where a Michigan resident continued to take food stamp benefits after winning a lottery jackpot. Embarrassed state lawmakers last year vowed to close legal loopholes making that possible.
    Michigan law, changed earlier in April, had left it up to aid recipients to report lottery winnings and job income to the state. The law now requires the lottery to report winners of $1,000 or more to the state and allows some asset tests.
    The new law "will make it easier to ensure that outrages involving instant millionaires on public assistance don't happen in the future," Maura Corrigan, director of the state human services department, said in a statement.
    The incident involving Clayton followed the case of Leroy Fick, a Saginaw-area man who took a lump sum payment from a $2 million lottery jackpot in June 2010 and continued to collect food stamp benefits.

    Not to defend the legions of government leeches out there, but there are a lot of people who are on food stamps for the first time in their lives. Maybe the clothes they were wearing were bought during better times.

    I had a similar experience this week. I always buy three or four prime rib roasts for X-Mas gifts for friends every year. As we all know, meat isn't cheap (well, nothing is). The chick in front of me had a grocery cart full of New York Steaks, a big Honey Ham, cases of Pepsi, boxes of cookies and everything was all name brand shit, along with a couple of half gallons of Smirnoff vodka. I asked her if she was throwing a X-Mas party and she laughed and said "I am, tonight", I told her that I wished I was invited and again we laughed cordially. She put over $250.00 of food (for her party) on her EBT card, and paid $80.00 cash for the booze, and wished me a Merry Christmas.

    People who collect benefits should have to pay them back when possible.

    The only problem Obama has with that is there are not enough people doing it.

    I was on food stamps once when both my husband and I lost our jobs in the same month (at the same company). We had $200 coming in every month.
    And I still felt guilty.

    Don't forget that Nancy "plastic face" Pilosi will tell you with a straight face that they are actually helping the economy by giving people food stamps and unemployment benefits.
