    OH but you cannot attack the base like that, they are entitled. You lock em up and you pay for that too. We pay no matter what.

    Homeless people, some whom are Vets, die in the street from hypothermia while others manipulate the system. If a vendor knowingly takes money, to me that makes Client AND Vendor just as guilty. This is where you need spotters and shut it down! If a person suspects fraud, there are fraud hotlines I'm sure somewhere on the net. They have the persons card, and I'm sure at the Point of Sale it records all data. We'll stop fraud, when we get involved imo.

    Nothing fuels the fire of welfare opponents like evidence of systemic welfare card distributions at strip clubs, pubs and casinos. They have been discovered through the years and the problem hasn't abated. Makes me shake my head in disbelief when I read here that EBT card is abusively used.

    Just left my local owned township business a local owned real butcher shop and watched a lady pay with her EBT CARD then get in her BMW with manicured fake nails and drive away! remeber the EBT SONG VIDEO http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6RhQsRKsU0M

    Not that wealthy people dont need help but I thought if you had BMW you would be able to sell it for money to pay your way!

    Let me work more so these people can buy more booze and keep the strippers employed! Is this part of the Obama Care plan?

    More reasons to drug test welfare recipients. There are generations of receipients who pass their trade on to others. My first wife had working the system down to an art. At one point she was receiving aid to dependant children while I was paying child support.

    Should be legal to tail them at work and when they enter a joint like this take the money out the ATM and purchase booze or what not with it charge them with fraud.

    Very sad but all too common. If we could only weed out these kinds system abusers, there would be more funds available to the elderly who don't even receive enough money to live on.

    Nice to know my taxes are well spent, unfortunately working in Brooklyn I have seen this problem first hand and it is rampant.

    Tax dollars at work, no wonder the welfare system is broken.

    How sad! There are so many who benefit from these programs responsibly while picking up the pieces of their lives. Unfortunately, the scum who use these funds fraudulently make it next to impossible for a decent citizen to want to support programs that appear unmanaged and uncontrolled.

    "The people who are stealing from the program are the ones I want to go after,” Libous said. “Not someone who lost his job or a single mom who has to feed her kids. That’s what this program is supposed to be for.”

    That's what I'm talkin' bout.
