How Obama's stimulus bill opened up the floodgates for food stamps making it extremely easy for people to qualify

Everyone should be outraged by this abuse of the food stamp program.  Obama's changes have made it so that this bum, Jason Greenslate, can "surf every day, it is wonderful man, just get away from everything and clear your head.  Get out with the boys and have a good time" on the taxpayer dime without having to be weighed down with a job (video is available here).  I would be interested in seeing anyone defend Obama's changes to the program after watching the video link.

Patrick Caddell describes how this video left him speechless.
Let me put it this way, my jaw hit the floor. Earlier this week I was able to screen a portion of this Friday’s Fox News documentary “The Great Food Stamp Binge,” hosted by Bret Baier. It airs Friday at 10 p.m. and Sunday at 9 p.m. ET on the Fox News Channel. This investigation focuses on a federal program called SNAP, or "Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program." . . . 
All this change is a direct result of the Obama administration's surreptitious undermining of the law in the Stimulus Act in 2009 and the disingenuous gutting of President Clinton's overwhelmingly successful Welfare Reform law. This was achieved by administrative fiat in 2010. . . . 
Take this example, from "The Great Food Stamp Binge," of what is nothing short of social engineering or reeducation. In North Carolina social workers actually got an award for breaking down the “Mountain Pride” that makes some from that state reluctant or unwilling to take handouts.  They actively fought the tradition of tightening your belt and taking care of yourself when times get tough. . . .

Its stories like this that cause me to vote against tax raises that are meant to help people who need it. California seems particularly too giving. My friend's bum ex-husband moved out, got on disability and is still supported by the California system though he's back in Colorado. When he was here and still married he worked a job for decades.

When Colorado had up for vote several years ago to raise taxes to help the disabled, I voted no because I don't feel that the states use my money wisely. If I had a guaranty that my money was going to help those you really needed it, not bums that just don't want to work, I would say maybe.

I grew up in a small town, the majority of the people were on government assistance, still are, generation after generation. My mom temporarily went on them until she could get stabilized (which is what it's for).

This is just disgusting!!

I would like to point out that some many months before the last Presidential Election, eligibility rules were loosened greatly, and then after said election, they were tightened up again.

Of course this is merely an coincidence...
