Govt. programs are not about helping anyone but the Govt. to solicit voters.

It would be difficult to expand the food stamp program (officially the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP) much further.

Between 2008 and 2010, the number of able-bodied people getting food stamps doubled, after the Obama administration lifted work requirements. One in seven Americans is on food stamps, which cost the federal government some $84.6 billion in 2011. One way to help SNAP recipients without spending more would be to teach them to stretch their dollars.

That’s where Stephanie Nelson, The Coupon Mom, comes in. She started her business years ago as a way to help others save money...
