No one should go hungry in America, and everyone deserves a second chance at accessing the “American Dream”. However  many welfare recipients have already achieved the ‘American Dream” by simply gaming the welfare system.

As illustrated by a recent Facebook photo and a written post by Patrick Gibson, who apparently noticed someone using an EBT Card in a supermarket and the amount and volume of premium food being purchased; “full buggies of groceries including such items like steak and some other very nice choices of food.”

He continued; “if I didn’t see the person move their big fold of cash out-of-the-way to get to the EBT Card and then load them into the back of a brand new Hyundai Genesis,” Gibson added, noting that a Genesis costs about $15,000 more than the car he drives.

What seems painfully apparent is that for some welfare recipients, living off the tax payer dime has become a way of life, and many believe they’ve already achieved the “American Dream” letting someone else pay, while they enjoy the fruits of  someone else’s  labor.

Gibson continued; “I just thought I would take the time to tell this person, family that you are very welcome from all of us hard-working, struggling to buy food, Americans that have to foot the bill for your fancy steak feast”. He mentioned that he skips breakfast and lunch, “because $50-$75 dollars doesn’t go very far.”

Patrick Gibson's full Facebook post:

Sorry but I had to vent. The picture you see on the left is the amount of groceries including diapers that I was able to afford this pay period for my family. ( wife, son, daughter,my self ) which was paid in cash since I actually work hard for a living. The picture on the right is of the purchase in front of me in line. If you can't tell in the picture there are 2 full buggies of groceries including such items like steak and some other very nice choices of food. Here's the kicker. This purchase was made in food stamps. Which I wouldn't have a problem with if I didn't see the person move their big fold of cash out of the way to get to the ebt card and then load them into the back of a brand new Hyundai Genesis. That is about 15k-20k more than my car. I just thought I would take the time to tell this person/family that you are very welcome from all of us hard working/ struggling to buy food Americans that have to foot the bill for your fancy steak feast while I skip breakfast and lunch every day that way my wife and children have food to eat everyday, because $50-$75 dollars doesn't go very far. So you enjoy your $800 free grocery purchase.
