You don't save after the recession hits because then you're just reducing the flow of money even more, you save while you're doing good economically to pump it back in to the economy in case of an emergency.

Here are some of the actual numbers:

Oh I understand multipliers, but I'm not sure I understand how food (which is somewhat inflexible on demand) would have such a high multiplier.

I'm glad Texas has growing cities. Our cities are already well grown. Besides it's all Mexicans

Our 1.2% growth, numerically isn't less than your 2.7% growth, because we have 13,000,000 more people than you do.

Pay poor people 50 cents on the dollar for their EBT cards so they can buy cigs and beer and you can buy food.

Back in olden times (the 80s) in Austin, off of MLK, by the tank farms, there was a shop that bought foodstamps for 50c/dollar, and resold them for 75c/dollar.

Gotta admit it does piss me off a bit to see a pregnant Mexican/white trash/black woman with 5 kids spaced a year apart buying a shitload of food with her state WIC card. Paying these worthless pieces of shit to reproduce, Mike Judge had it right.

No he didn't and that movie is awful because now I have to listen to annoying neckbeards unironically talking about culling undesirables without realizing they'd be first in line. Eugenics woooooooo.

Welfare fraud is not as widespread as you think it is

I think the numbers are right, the problem is calling it a "return on investment". The amount in "economic activity" does not mean that said amount of money was returned to the original funding pool.

edit: and doesn't number link to unemployment insurance, not the food stamp program?

because this happens all the time, right? I'm sure you'll tell the same exact story that comes from every single person who thinks welfare moms all drive escalades. same story every single time, leading me to believe that every single person who has ever claimed on a forum they saw that shit in a store is lying through their fucking teeth. no doubt it happens, just like there's no doubt that those of us in the military know full fucking well thousands in government property gets stolen or wasted every single day but it doesn't mean that any significant number of us are pulling it off.

there are some people who don't need them. some people who managed to abuse the system and actually have enough money to buy things that even the average middle class person can't afford. but that is not a significant number, it's not a huge drain on the system nor is it justification to eliminate the benefits for those that actually need it.
