Re: “Rep. Jeff Dial, You Are a Terrible Person

Correction to my comment above, 'Dial', not 'Flake', though one does remind me of the other.

Re: “Rep. Jeff Dial, You Are a Terrible Person

Based on the ignorance of his comments and proposal, I suggest that Jeff Dial "go get a better education." Although that's a little harder since his party has cut scholarships, funding to schools, even bus routes needed to get there.
Does he seriously think that thought has never occured to anyone currently recieving food stamps? That none of them are struggling to remedy their situation and find work and a way to get an education? Does he not realize that the majority of food stamp recipients are disabled or are single mothers who are not recieving child support? What does he think they are all doing, lounging in easy chairs in front of a TV?
Does making a card bright orange somehow make it any more difficult to sell? Isn't there cost involved in making all new cards? Not to mention the fact that he is so uninformed that he was unaware that the food stamp program is federally, not state funded.
Shame on those single mothers for not having the wisdom to be born into a job with their own wealthy family, as Mr. Dial was! Perhaps they should all wear be forced to wear a scarlet 'P' on their clothing, for 'Poor'.
If there is any karma or justice in this world, I hope that someday Mr. Flake is re-born as a single mother working a minimum wage job while trying to further her education. I would wish that, but no child should have to endure that situation, as mine have.
