The main concern I have is that the program may be being "promoted" among kids whose parents have plenty of money to see that they don't starve - and that affluent, high-tuition kids are treating the cards as bonus accessories - because "everyone is doing it."

The stigma is gone, Cloward & Piven will collapse the whole thing eventually. My cousin was talking on Facebook about how their kids got subsidized school lunches. They aren't rich, but they're definitely not poor, not by a longshot. Little by little they're handing out perks which will make it more painful when they're taken away, which will make it easier for the perk promisers to get elected, and that's the goal. I do not see this ending well, and i'm not just talking about school lunches and food stamps, this election has made it perfectly clear to me that people want the goods.
