South Carolina Wants Food Stamp Recipients to Prove They’re Looking for Jobs

Gov. Nikki Haley’s administration is exploring the possibility of requiring food stamp recipients to look for a job, if they don’t have one already.

The South Carolina Department of Social Services cited health concerns, like the fact that the longer people are on food stamps, the fatter they get.

The S.C. Department of Social Services said Friday it will seek a federal waiver for a pilot project that would require many food-stamp recipients in Bamberg, Calhoun and Orangeburg counties to prove they either have jobs or are looking for employment.

In its announcement of the proposed “SNAP Work 2 Health” waiver, Social Services cited an Ohio State University study that found Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program recipients gained more weight the longer they received food stamps.

I don’t know how anyone could object to this proposal. (Although I’m sure liberals will find a way!) Food stamps were invented to help people who are struggling to get back on their feet, not to provide a lifetime of groceries for lazy people and their dependents. Since long-term food stamp use is linked to poor health outcomes–the opposite of its intention–this is a step in the right direction.
