SNAP, The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, is a welfare program that provides food to the needy. Unfortunately, the program also feeds America's growing dependence on government. Since 2007, an increasing number of people have been abusing the program. Nearly 17 percent of families on food stamps today earn enough income to remain above the federal poverty line.
The linked chart sums up perfectly why this analysis is entirely wrong.
"The federal poverty threshold doesn't tell the whole truth about poverty and income in the United States. Research suggests that neither federal minimum wage nor poverty-level income are enough to meet a family's most basic needs. In fact, a family that earns about twice the federal poverty level is still classified as "low income.""
