California scheming: Surfer dude living off food stamps

Powered by Topple

Here’s a glimpse into the life of a California surfer dude, 29-year-old Jason Greenslate, living the good life in La Jolla, complements of friends, family and the American taxpayer.

Because Greenslate is unemployed, he’s able to claim benefits under the EBT/Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). And why is Greenslate unemployed? Not because of the economy, not because he was laid off and not because he suffers from an injury or ailment. He’s unemployed simply because he chooses to be.

The Obama administration has lowered the standards to receive federal SNAP benefits, resulting in a 70 percent increase in program enrollment in the almost five years since his inauguration.
