Yet another loophole that allows people to leetch off of the system. How is it possible that the Fed govt., which is full of educated people, is too stupid to prevent people with a large net worth from collecting low-income benefits?

sick. why in the heck would eligibility only be based on gross income? That just seems idiotic to me. If someone has millions in the bank but doesn't have a current income it's pretty obvious that they shouldn't be able to get food stamps. Wants even worse is this guy still wants them even though he doesn't need them. what a leech.

It's odd that the state doesn't see lottery winnings as income and yet they line up to get income tax from them. how typically hypocritical of government.

I cant hate on the guy because he is doing nothing wrong, But I do lay severe blame on the gov't for his ability to do this.
