A state senate committee approved a bill that could make it more difficult for some Oklahomans to get food stamps.

The bill requires able bodied Oklahomans, ages 18-50 and without children to work at least 20 hours a week to qualify for food stamps.

Opponents say the bill hurts safety nets for people with low income. The bill now goes to the full senate.

im sick of going to the grocery store and seeing these " low income needy poor families" with one cart full of food and the other cart full of electronics and high dollar items, paying for the food in food stamps and pulling out $100 bills to pay for the other stuff while they are wearing their nike shoes and playing with their smart phones. then they load up their stuff in their big suvs with 20 to 24 inch wheels or their new cars with rims!!! what the hell???!!!
