Leroy Fick claims this man isn't making him feel bad about using food stamps?

Sir, I think the fact that you asked him to leave proves to the contrary.

If this wasn't a truly free society, I would make a law that bans people like you from EVER benefiting from taxpayer funded services. When you get laid off, you're on your own. House on fire? sorry. Someone is breaking into your house? sorry, but that socialist program called the police department only helps people who don't complain about OTHER people using taxpayer funded services but use it themselves. Do us all a favor and don't ever apply for food stamps when you lose your job...

This guy should move to Seattle. He'd feel quite at home here, with food stamp abusing home owners and cheap-skates like himself.

Oh, please, like every city, every state doesn't have problems with any issue?? Hopefully, you'll leave and learn what a beautiful, kind city you live in. People here still try to "love thy neighbor" and is working hard to solve problems all cities are facing.

Seattle is considered an enlightened, literate city. In fact, top in books read/bought per capita.

Read a self-help book and work on improving yourself before condemning an entire city.

I do not expect anything better from a person who reads self-help books to help herself.

People who REALLY DESERVE Foodstamps are the ones collecting foodstamps.

I'm just glad they are revising the rules and taking his food stamp benefits away.

Classic bloodsucker. On disability and food stamps, but still able to play the lottery. Offer this guy a job making $18.00/hr with decent insurance and I would wager he would turn it down. Why work when you can be supported by someone else. So what if the lottery withheld a million in taxes, he still cleared close to a million in cash. Clearly does not need food stamp assistance. Not sure what his disability is, but absolutely sure of his lack of pride. Definately no self respect. Probably will be broke within a year and in search of more government "freebies". I do not fault someone that truly needs assistance, but do have an issue with those that make it a way of life and feel that is their "entitlement". A sad state of affairs and even sadder there are those that fail to see the difference. I have more respect for those that are truly making an honest effort to free themselves from government aid. For all the rest that are nothing more than "leeches"--------Please die quickly.

That's nothing compared to "corporate food stamps."

First of all Fick IS NOT a millionaire. A millionaire is one that has a constant $1 mil or more income after taxes. One shot deals do not qualify. Secondly, the man does not have $2 mil. How many times must a so-called educated news reporter ask a question that has already been answered by itself no less by Mr. Fick himself? Thirdly, Mr. Fick was responsible and honest enough to inquire about the bridge card. Lastly, it is not Mr. Ficks responsibility to interpret the laws only to abide by them. That he did. And if he did break any laws, shame on him and should be punished. The media is just using Mr. Fick as a pawn to get legislators and alike to get off their nut. As always, wait until an event to act on it instead of implementing prevention.

"Lastly, it is not Mr. Ficks responsibi lity to interpret the laws only to abide by them."

This wouldn't happen in California. They count property and savings against you, and the car alone would disqualify him. It's an insult to those of us who are struggling. I was diagnosed with about 2 years ago. I was suffering for 5 years and kept getting worse. I finally ended up on welfare while waiting for Social Security to kick in. I'm still fighting for it and have to live on the pittance they give out. Now, they're even reducing that. Why? Because of people like this idiot who cheat the system. They help bankrupt the state and give a stigma to those of us who genuinely need help.
