I'm watching the president talk about budget cuts. One source of government waste is the welfare and Link programs.
For several months my wife and I, while trying to buy groceries we can't always afford but need, see people in front of us abusing the Link program. For instance, we were at a grocery store in Schaumburg. There was a lady buying a cart full of vegetables in large quantity. It could never have been just for personal use.
While shopping in Elk Grove Village we saw two ladies with carts filled with cooking oil. There is no way this was for normal family use. Paid with a Link card.
A man was checking out at yet another store in Schaumburg and had cases of condiments. Cases of hamburger and hot dog buns and at least 15 gallons of milk. Paid with Link, but he pulled out a wallet full of credit cards and 50- and 100-dollar bills. What family would they be feeding?
I have been told that once you get the LINK card your income is never questioned again. I contacted Tammy Duckworth's office and was told this is a federal program and to contact state's attorney because this is federal fraud.
Why don't we stand up and fight for what's right. Help put our country back on track. Stop wasteful spending and feed the people who really need it. How much is this costing Illinois and our country?
