Isn’t it a great idea that Obama suspended welfare-to-work requirements? I’m thinking of moving to Cali and just working on my tan, why should Zip have all the tan on this site?
Why bother getting a job when you can jam out, surf and enjoy sushi with your bros, thanks to government food stamps?
That was the attitude displayed by Jason Greenslate, a 29-year-old California surfer and musician, interviewed by Fox News‘ John Roberts during “The Great Food Stamp Binge,” Friday night special.
Though he’s trained as a recording engineer, Greenslate prefers to sing explicitly about what little desire he has to hold down a job and has “f**k no” guilt toward his taxpayer-funded lifestyle. Greenslate also lives rent-free, occupying the homes of family and friends while occasionally shacking up with girlfriends — a lifestyle that he said is “wonderful, man.”
In addition to surfing and playing in his band, Greenslate’s daily routine keeps him pretty busy.
“Wake up, go down to the beach, hang out with my friends, hit on some chicks, start drinking,” Greenslate explained to Roberts.
Fox News later followed Greenslate to the grocery store to see what items fill his cart using the $200 monthly payment he receives from enrollment in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. Roberts watched as the beach bum picked out gourmet sushi and lobster, “all paid for by our wonderful tax dollars,” according to Greenslate.
With more than 47 million Americans enrolled in SNAP — costing taxpayers nearly $80 million last year — unabashed food stamp recipients like Greenslate are common in a program that has been also plagued by abuse and fraud.
