This is a very complicated issue. No one should have to go hungry, and in my opinion people should not have the right to regulate what other people choose to eat. I don't think it is a good idea or a bad idea. I believe that people who abuse the food stamp program will get whatever they want with their food stamps either way. There is a gas station close to my neighborhood that recently got shut down because they were allowing people to use food stamps to purchase any and everything they wanted with food stamps (gas, cigarettes, cell phone cards, probably even alcohol......etc.) And you know if it is happening in one place it is happening in 1000 places. I think what the government needs to be more focused on is the who instead of the what. A couple suggestions.......Make it mandatory that people who receive food stamps attend nutrition classes ( WIC does), and do random audits, not to check on the type of food they are buying, but that food is the only thing that they are buying. I have also heard of people selling their food stamps for cash to buy drugs. If they sell them for that they could easily sell them to buy a whopper or a big mac. I guess what I am trying to say is that in my opinion, people are going to eat what they want to eat so instead of discussing what people should eat the government should be discussing how to make sure people receiving food stamps are eating period and not using their food stamps for other things.
