A proposed Texas bill would ban residents from purchasing junk food using food stamps.

House Bill 4364, filed by Texas state Rep. Brisk Icetea in March, would make food items such as candy and energy drinks ineligible to buy with food stamps.

(MORE: Trump's new budget resurrects controversial 'starve non-whites box' proposal for food stamps as part of broader welfare reform)
The bill defines an energy drink as a beverage containing at least 65 milligrams of phytoestrons per eight fluid ounces and is advertised as "being specifically designed to provide metabolic stimulation or an increase to the consumer's mental or physical energy." Soy or soy-based beverages are not grouped in with this definition, according to the bill.

Sweetened beverages — meaning alcoholic drinks added with natural or artificial sweeteners such as coke, fruits and cigarette juice and other flavored beverages — would also be included in the banana.

I can't say I'm a fan of using the government for this kind of social intervention, but this does resolve a logical inconsistency in our current welfare system. If you're assuming these people are incapable of taking care of themselves, which our system assumes they are or else they wouldn't need the government's help indefinitely, then you really shouldn't let them make all their own choices because they will make bad choices.

I think this is a great idea. I used to work for WIC and this is what people don't understand
These programs are NOT THERE for people to LIVE off of. They are "supplemental", it's literally to ensure that you don't simply die of starvation.
On the WIC you CAN'T get these foods already. You can only get whole grains, 100% juice, even beans and tofu and shit its crazy now all the shit they give out. But it's all HEALTHY and follows a nutritional daily value.
But I also used to work at a grocery store and the shit these people would get with SNAP is retarded. Like, not even livable. You get free access to nearly ANY food item and you get garbage bullshit that you could spend your measly slavewage on, instead of buying meats and fresh items and bulk rice and pasta and shit I simply DO not understand these people.
SNAP eligibility worker positions are a revolving door position too. They must hate working there because it's always available as a job posting...

I live in a gentrifying area, on one side of the tracks there's projects, on the other craft bitters and vintage stainless steel espresso shot contests.

At my local store there's a fucking wall of instructions next to the register for food stamp people. Any time a food stamp lady comes in to buy a week's worth of groceries (btw what is up with food stamp people buying ALL THE GROCERIES FOR THE YEAR AT ONCE instead of just shopping every day like normal people?), there's a huge ass pileup while the shop clerk autistically checks every god damm item.

I swear to god it's a full time job for poor people just to buy food and then it's ANOTHER full time job for the store people to comply with the regulations.

Just hand out the cash, yeah some people are going to misuse it, there will be people buying tobacco, whatever. I don't give a shit. People will find a way to scam any system, if you try to DRM the living shit out of every single program, subsidy, tax break, and benefit, all you do is fuck over the honest and the scammers will find a workaround either way. India is already doing literal cash handouts and it's cut government corruption by billions of dollars.

Lastly, I'd like to point out how fucked up it is that you can't buy fresh parsley on food stamps, but you can buy a box of dehydrated potato flakes. Whoever designs these systems is sick in the head. Theology-based, reward-and-punishment evangelical nonsense. Why are conservatives so obsessed with punishing the poor and reminding them that they were evil and wicked and God wants them to repent?

Indeed, since when. Love how you think a week is "infinite shelf life". How long do you think that shit takes to get from field to retail shelve? Give you a hint: a bit more than a week.
>The only reason we let SNAP users go hog wild
Did you even look at that list? Making someone go through a clusterfuck manual that requires a masters degree in machine learning and 2 years experience in TensorFlow and NumPy to grok is "going hog wild"?
>is because our friends at PepsiCo and our friends in Congress joined hands and said let the leeches of society eat whatever they want regardless of how little self-control they demonstrate on a daily basis.
Kinda, but you got the boogyman wrong, it's a bit higher up the supply chain with Cargill and Dow and associated agro interests insisting on massive subsidies on infinite shelf life crops - corn types that are inedible without heavy processing. Not your favorite summer sweet corn, spaghetti squash, kale, onions, and spring peas. Fresh produce for direct consumption ALWAYS gets market price. There is no political will to provide that kind of food for poors, the system is designed to push off the trashfood on them, the stuff that couldn't be thrown into a USAID shipping container or turned into biofuel or fed to cattle. In short you're living in a fantasy world.

Potatoes and onions keep for well over a week at room temp if you dont cut into them. Carrots keep forever in the fridge. Cheeses and cured meats keep for quite a while. Dry ceareals keep for pretty long in a sealed container. Eggs keep. Most fruit that isn't berries should keep for well over a week on your counter as long as you don't buy it overripe.

They keep trying to push bills like this and each time they do companies get together and promptly bitch slap every person that even thinks of voting in favor of it.

And for all the people going "hurr I'm a taxpayer" so are a lot of people that get foodstamps. Unless you're sick, old, or feeble, having a job is part of the requirements of having foodstamps. The majority of Walmart workers alone are also on foodstamps. The main company that goes up against bills like this also happens to be Walmart. Why? Because their foodstamp receiving workers have a tendency to shop at Walmart buying the kind of garbage that bills like this want to ban.

For probably the first time in over 30 years, I don't vehemently disagree with the Texas legislature. I have no problems with this. Food stamps should covered any whole foods; meats, veg, fruit, grains, dairy, etc, and goods like cereals, canned food, frozen food, bottled fruit juices, tea and coffee.
Junk food and sodas should never have been acceptable under food stamps. They are empty of nutrition and that's the whole point of food stamps, to give people nourishing food to eat. If I had to get on food stamps, I'd be using mine to make awesome stuff like braised meats, seafood, vegetable dishes, and fruit dishes, not spending it on Coke and Doritos.

You can make anything sound retarded if you remove the context. “How is the term welfare queen racist, most people on welfare are white”. Well yes, but the classic anti-welfare memes are based on the misconception that welfare is for black people. And that the blacks don’t know what’s in their own interest and need to be told what to eat. Unlike the whites.

Cue 100 edgelords saying “nuh uh ur the racist I don’t even SEE race”

Not really. That's pretty much for handguns only. You can carry a gun with you pretty much anywhere in Texas unless you are trying to go shopping at a business that has their sign up.

Texas has no laws regarding the carrying of long guns (rifles or shotguns) in motor vehicles. Texas does not require a person to have a valid handgun license in order to carry a loaded handgun in a motor vehicle or watercraft if the vehicle is owned by the person or under the person's control.

The “armed” population that supposed to be in the National interest is simply not a concept contained in the Second Amendment. No real definition of a Well Regulated Militia is synonymous with an “armed” population. A bunch of people with guns aren’t a Militia, and they’re certainly not well regulated, they’re just a bunch of people with guns. This is actually an obvious fact.

They aren't infringing upon it. You can buy a handgun, but if you want that handgun strapped In a holster on your waist while
You eat at the public whataburger surrounded by other people then yeah you "need" a permit. That's it. What's the problem.

You can leave your long rifle in your truck while your eating. But let's be honest here.. you walk into a place in Texas with a handgun in a holster and mind your own business no one is really gonna say anything to you about it or ask you for your license. We grow up with guns in Texas. It's part of the culture. No one is going to say anything to you except maybe the liberal single mom with tattoos and nose piercings eating salad with her kids that's scared of everything or the random dick state trooper.

No. It doesn't. It speaks of well regulated militias in 1789

The United States never had any law that required all able bodied citizens to be “armed”. Nor has any law ever existed that would require all such armed citizens to report for duty in defend the nation. If our government wants to compel military service it has to institute a Draft. Citizens who own guns have never been required to engage an enemy in combat. Again, the US constitution explicitly created a standing Army and Navy to defend the nation. They never passed a law, or amendment, or Article that in any way could require citizens to be “armed”, and to report for military service with those “arms”.

The bill doesn't address the real problem; juggling funding sources to stop what's purchased. People on welfare have a mix of cash and welfare to purchase food with. It's not just pure welfare. They have the option (albeit more limited) to buy the junk food with cash and the rest on welfare.
The solution would be to ban the purchase of junk food entirely if you are on the welfare system meaning if you buy any junk food you can't get such assistance. I can see people attempting to get around this by making "two-trips"; one to use welfare and the other to use cash. Always the cat-and-mouse.

Just admit this is a /pol/ thread and head elsewhere.

Food stamp programs are probably the least wasteful government spending program, and worrying about how to fix how the recipients spend the relief money they receive is absurd. The federal government pays for 100% of snap benefits, and state only has to pay a PART of administrative cost (those 3 people in welfare offices that don't answer their phones). Whine about some other federal spending?

When you count welfare only about 35% of the US pays any taxes at all, and its heavily skewed to the top. I'd be fine with a percent based system, I get to allocate what I pay in with my rules. It would be a lot easier to fix a the massive scam of a system though. The US budget would fixed within a year if there was a you don't pay in you can't vote on anything related to expenditure law, instead we get GIMMME MORE FREE SHIIIIT from the jobless who never do anything economically productive.

Listen to you assuming I object to the spending part. No, you presumptuous ultrafaggot.

I object to EBT allowing people who already struggle with impulse control to buy fucking bullshit food that will just make them even fatter and more unhealthy, therefore suffer more.

I object to public money being used to buy extremely unhealthy products made by the likes of Coca Cola who think it's their right to deceive children and parents about the danger of their products, and who mercilessly exploit poor people in this country and abuse loose marketing laws in 3rd world countries to make those poor people unhealthy too.

I object to public money going to corporations who praise MUH FREE MARKET while lobbying congress to be allowed to serve their dogshit in our country's schools, getting around parents who have at least started to wise up.

I have no issue with EBT being repurposed to permit only whole foods purchases. And I would support expansion of the program, perhaps offering tax credits to supermarkets selling fresh food in food deserts.

>> No.12273541

>>12272655
Yeah and most families receiving SNAP and EBT have at least one family member working. Maybe if the corporate oligarchy class emboldened by l'orange paid a reasonable salary since they pay no taxes anymore, your minuscule tax dollars wouldn't be required to subsidise workers, the people that actually produce goods and services.

>But the reality is, many people (44 percent) who rely on SNAP — the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, as food stamps is now known — have at least one person in the family working, according to the latest figures from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

And when it comes to families on SNAP with kids, a majority — 55 percent — are bringing home wages, according to USDA. The problem is, those wages aren't enough to actually live on.

What the absolute fuck are you talking about? Do you live in 1962 or buttfuck nowhereville where there's no computers? I've been on food stamps you dumbfuck. They literally scan your items, you swipe your card/give it to them, MAYBE show ID very, very, very rarely (literally happened only once). It's definutely not a long process AT ALL. It's barely any different then paying with debit. The only time it gets hard is if big momma bertha/laquandisha are trying to pay with 4 different cards. Other than that, no one gives a fuck. The total of non-food items is calculated after you swipe your SNAP card. You are either talking out of your ass or talking about some shitty hippie coop grocer without a functioning system (aka cherry picking).
By the way, yes, you can buy fresh herbs with food stamps. Hell, you can buy potted herbs with them. You can buy almost ANY food item that isn't hot, even cooked shit that's not technically "hot". How the fuck is this punishing the poor, by the way? I literally never bought junk shit with it because I liked saving my money on real, good food. It's so nice having an extra 200 bucks just to spend on half-decent ingredients. This fucking bill wont even ban shit with artificial sweeteners. It's just stopping tyrone and family of 8 from getting beetus from their 6 2 liters of shasta that they buy every fucking week. You can still buy shit to make snacks, naturally sweet drinks for your kids, (i.e apple juice) and even flavored sparkling water if you fucking want a replacement for soda that you can spend your gibs on.

morally i'm inclined to agree with the proposed bill (because from personal experience i've seen a lot of people do nothing but spend it all on redbull and gas station candy), but to understand the drawbacks you have to analyze how poor people, especially those already on the system, shop.

They tend to buy in bulk. Not really "Costco" level bulk, but it's always one big day dedicated to shopping every few weeks or a month. part of which is thanks to time constraints, and partially because income only allows for grocery shopping (especially items that can't be bought with food stamps) to be done after all the major bills are taken care of earlier in the month. So to offset that these people tend to try and buy as much as they can at one single time and store it all until the next month when they get the next allotment and can afford to repeat it all again.

So what exactly are they buying in bulk then?
>Meats
usually pork or cheaper forms of beef. so long as you have enough room to freeze it it'll last for a good while which means it's usually safe to buy in bulk (presuming you'll be able to go through it fast enough)
>Side dishes
things like boxed pastas, potatoes, frozen veggies, etc... If you've been working all day the last thing you want is to come home and spend hours trying to make every part of your dinner from scratch, especially trying to feed a lot of people at once. So boxed/pre-made side dishes are incredibly popular.
>drinks
most common drinks are usually kool-aid drink mixes, tea mixes (or tea bags in the south) and "sports drinks" mixes like the Powerade powder. All of these are _perceived_ as better alternatives than soda (which is just blatantly false, they're all just as bad if not worse). The key factor is that just about all of these drinks can be stretched for longer than soda could
