@tenya I've definitely been a broke college student in a dorm before. I don't know about her dorm but my dorm always had a main kitchen. Also an electric kettle and an illegal toaster works wonders. Anyway,I know she lived in a dorm and didn't have to pay for food but my point was that even if she had to pay for food I dont see how $70 is a little bit of money for a college student.also, if I remember correctly, she lived off campus which hopefully means she had a kitchen in her apartment. I don't think this post illustrated your last point.
Maybe I'm poorer than I thought I was but $70/ week sounds like a lot of money,especially for a college student, especially when everything is essentially paid for already. What other expenses do you have as a college student? Even if you had to buy food, there are plenty of foods you can buy on the cheap like rice, pasta, and vegetables etc. This post was weird to me.
@msafiri That isn't the counterpoint to the conservative anti-benefit argument. Also the conservatives aren't anti-benefit.They are anti benefits for people that they incorrectly identify as moochers. The pro-benefit liberals (if we are going to polarize people)know the system has its flaws and want reform not complete desertion of necessary benefits.
