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

Hi Mr. Madson - I have been working since I was 11 years old. I had to lie and say I was 12. I washed dishes in a truck stop for 20 hours a week, 10 hours a piece on Friday and Saturday night. Throughout my middle and high school years, I always had a job. I actually had a full time 2nd shift job for the last two years because I wanted a car that nobody was going to buy for me, and I got it. Graduated on time, went to a community college and managed to get my degree in less than 2 years even though I had a drive that from my home, to work, then to school in the evenings totaled 150 miles round trip. 49 hour work week, 24 hours of school a week plus drive time - I am not, nor have I ever been lazy. I was stricken with cancer when I was 31 years old and because our wonderful government is run by people that think like you, getting disability benefits is such a long and tedious process. Social Security - THAT I PAID MY SHARE.
For two years, I went through chemotherapy and if it was not for those cards, I would not have eaten for those two years. With zero income and rent of $950 plus like any other American, I had other bills, I was awarded $174 a month for food. Fortunately, by cutting out non-essentials, my savings paid the bills through those two years and that card allowed me to eat. I don't believe I deserved the looks I got and the comments I could hear behind me in the line, but I ignored them anyway.
You want to know how to cut down on fraud? Have the clerks ask for an i.d., just like they should on credit and debit cards, and if it is not the person on the card, then don't honor any transactions. That simple little step in the process would weed out about 75% of it.
I also saw the line where you stated "then you will use the card we give you." So, I guess that means you are one of the people I should be thanking and feel indebted to, since you gave up your hard earned tax money to a free loader like myself. So, thank you, Mr. Madson, for giving me $2,088 over a two year period so that I could eat while I was being a lazy drain on society. I know it would have been better if I was a non-resident of this country who never paid a dime into the system and is given benefit after benefit even though my mere presence here would be against the law, but we are all thankful that we have men with common sense like yourself to keep things straightened out and hopefully, if it ever happens to me again, you can make sure that I am embarrassed further by having to flash a neon card to get my less than 50 bucks a week of groceries to survive.
I never considered myself an exceptionally bright person, but life lessons that I think most adults would have naturally learned ( like finding out people's situations before throwing out asinine judgements of them ) and how to treat your fellow man, would have been learned by a certain age, but it still astounds me that people like yourself make those same mistakes over and over.
