Morgan is losing money by the minute, they get kickbacks per transaction..

They are already teetering on the edge of folding, this might do it..

Consumer Alert, November 16, 2012

JP Morgan has reported a technical problem that prevents EBT transactions, food purchases and cash benefit withdrawals at ATM machines from being processed statewide. This problem is also preventing calls from going through to the EBT hotline phone number (1-888-328-6399). JPMorgan and OTDA are working quickly to resolve these problems.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 16458406


Same glitch made their hotline go down? They must think folks are brain-dead stupid.
 Quoting: thinkingoutsidetherhombus


You should see some of the Twitter rants blaming Romney and Republicans, so they may think people will believe it. Interesting that not just the technical problems but the hotline is also "down".
 Quoting: Laura Bow


I said earlier - "Maybe it's a move on the political chess board - The looming Fiscal Cliff and it's right before Thanksgiving and the mean old rich Republicans won't raise taxes because they don't give a damn about you.

If they would just raise taxes and go along with Barak, you'd be able to swipe that card."

Regardless if it's intentional or not - and it probably isn't - the reaction is the same: Blame Republicans.

This is the Fruit of Obama coming into full-bloom.
 Quoting: Ted Nougat 1339238


Well I'm not saying it could be intentional as coming from those who are running the EBT system, but it's possible terrorists/hackers could be doing things to stir up people here in the USA.

To everyone calling people on foodstamps names and blasting them with hate. I am a paramedic, I am employed at 56 hours a week, helping the sick and elderly, and my family still qualifies for foodstamps. Think about that while you are spilling your self-righteous hate. Your policeman, fireman, or ambulance personnel get paid so little we qualify for this benefit. So while you sleep at night and we are selflessly protecting you think on this.
 Quoting: preacher101


A cop in Pinellas County, FL makes 48k/year. A Detective up to 80k/year.

To think those levels of income garner qualification into food stamps is riduclious. You must live in a blue state??

I would like to hope that people will remain calm and wait and see what transpires but you know that will not happen. If this isn't corrected by tomorrow expect big problems.

I"m thinking about getting some chickens, but I read somehwere that by the time you buy the feed and the medications that they need, it's cheaper to buy the eggs from the store.

I don't know. I am planting a huge garden this spring tho. Got a used garden tiller off craigslist a few months ago.
 Quoting: Lisa*Lisa


This is true. It's not cheaper than buying eggs...but if life as we know it ends, at least you'll have a source of food for a while. If you have a decent amount of land, they can forage for themselves if push comes to shove.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 23794435


I just started raising chickens and it hasn't cost me a penny yet. All the eggs I have gotten are free. They are free range and don't need supplemented food yet. They will need some when the snow flies however.

I work for a private ambulance in Orlando FL, not all of us are lucky enough to work for the city or county, also that is a high starting rate for officers here in central FL. Hey if you want to support social medicine and raise my pay to those levels I'm all for it. The owner of my company makes several million dollars a year sucking on the medicare teet and paying us garbage. He has a private jet, a $500k yacht, etc. but I'm sure you are one of the same people who says there is nothing wrong with the healthcare system. As mentioned 56hrs a week still equals maximum foodstamp benefit for me.

Yes - EBT is only down in the states that JP Morgan services. They service 35 states, and they provide many more services for those states than EBT - including social security payments and government payroll processing, among other things.

These states/protectorates include: AK, AR, CO, CT, DE, FL, GA, Guam, HI, ID, IN, KY, NE, NV, NH, NM, NY, OK, OR, PA, RI, SC, UT, VT, Virgin Islands, WA, WV, WY

Take a look at this info page for retailers about the services they provide:

[link to www.ebtretailerinfo.jpmorgan.com (secure)]

Florida DCF has announced that manual processing will be put into place with a max of $40 in purchases allowed from grocery stores and $100 from Wal-mart.

This falls squarely on the backs of the baby boomer and GenX dads! We abdicated our responsibilities as men for football, basketball, fake tits, and bass boats.

We let our wives raise our sons alone while we chased twenty-two year old pussy. I accept responsibility even though I have been a father to my son and a husband to my wife!
