The Fraudulent "Food Stamp Fraud Rate"

By Chris Rossini

Vox's Dylan Matthews writes:
Food stamp "fraud" (which mainly means trading food stamps for cash, a totally reasonable activity that in a just world would be 100 percent legal without any fees attached to it) is very rare, with a fraud rate of only 1 percent.
A just world?

In a just world, it would be 100% legal to keep 100% of your money.

In a just world, (A) would not steal money from (B) to give to (C).

In a just world, (D) would not act as an apologist for (A) and then have the temerity to complain about how unjust the world is.

Keeping your hands off the property of others is "a totally reasonable activity".
