Emery Facebook post compares food stamp recipients to animals

On his Facebook page, Sen. Ed Emery, R-Lamar, has compared those on food stamps to animals.

From the Cass County Democrat Missourian account:

Titled as a lesson in irony and attributed to a friend, the post states that 47 million people received food stamp benefits in 2013.

It then states that the National Park Service has a policy against feeding animals.

“Their [sic] stated reason for the policy is because ‘the animals will grow dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves.’”

Basically the same point as the old adage - "Give a man a fish you feed him for a day; Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime". Welfare was intended to be temporary assistance. It has become a career path for many!
