Welfare cards (EBT) in MA The truth!
I work in at a store, and I am ill at what I see.
I am a divorced man trying to be responsible, but can't even afford a christmas present for my child, and eat ramen noddles. Honestly have not had a real home cooked meal in months.


What I see:

One woman that is a regular has 5, yes 5, food cards in different names. All have over $200 balances. (another steak please)

Another man works for UPS, brags how is making 22/hr but uses a food card with over $1000 dollar balance.

90% of all the food cards are used for candy and soda.

Those that use food cards will then take out cash, buy $100 worth of lottery tickets and cigarettes.

I love those that pull up in their Lexus, dressed in designer clothes, beautiful make-up and hair, then pull out the EBT to buy a $5 bottle of tea.

Those that have EBT cash will get money back and then go across the street to the liquor store.

Every day I go to work, I want to take these people and throw them in the dumpster where they belong, Called worthless trash.

If two guys rob a armoured car for 5 million dollars, are they millionaires or are they thieves?
They are thieves.
If someone is frauding welfare, they aren't welfare recipients, they are felons.

Re: Welfare cards (EBT) in MA The truth!
I have tried to play it straight, but have come to the conclusion you have to play the "system" in order to survive. As it is I can't pay rent, or afford more than hotdogs. and I think the 8 pack of hotdogs I just bought has gone bad since I just puked some up, ewww. Anyway, you better get on board for the free handouts. Otherwise you'll be left behind. That's what I'm planning on doing. I've put off getting food stamps for years. All this time I could have been saving my own money, I feel stupid. Yet at the same time I always felt better using my own money to pay for things, but now I am thinking that's a mistake, just look for yourself how well those other people have it compared to you.

You and me get broker, they use and abuse the system and get richer.

So I've come to the conclusion that if you can't win playing it straight, you've got to do the same thing as them just so you can break even.

The lady with 5 different cards in 5 different names is breaking the law and should be refused at checkout. EBT cards have the person's pic on it as identification.

Re: Welfare cards (EBT) in MA The truth!
I live in MA too. It's disgraceful. There is a sign at the local BHA and it thanks the good taxpayers of the commonwealth for the lovely project development. I am not joking. So, as I drive by, I see, Cadillacs, Lexus, new Hondas etc. I am taking a picture of the cars and the sign and writing these lazy MF'rs off on my state taxes as dependanrs. I've had enough of this crap. My local government at its best. Thanking me for getting up and going to work to pay for their cars, projects, healthcare, school breakfast and lunch of which are now all free, free snack program, free daycare etc. OH these are our dependanrs to claim on taxes! I would rather have a tax refund on them thank a lousy damn sign painted to thank all of us for going to work. MA is the armpit of welfare, food stamps and free programs.

He complains because they have food stamps to spend when he does not. The food stamps make them rich in his eyes...this is how bad the economy has sunk in the US, jealousy over food stamps. We see someone crying here about it every day, about how their lives are so hard and they must eat ramen noodles while some lucky SOB was poor enough to qualify for the entitlement of foodstamps.

It's alright.
You know what always pissed me off most about the food stamp program? It doesn't promote sharing. It's actually fraud or a felony (maybe both) to share food bought with food stamps. it's only legal to buy food for the specific people named on the application.

This leads further to a society of non sharing where there will always be bickering over who was granted food stamps and who wasn't, rather than having a community/shared table where everyone can eat together regardless of who was granted special permissions by the government in that particular month.

Re: Welfare cards (EBT) in MA The truth!
I am am a self employed contractor, who does a lot of work on houses in depressed areas (HUD). I have personally seen a home with 3 generations (up to 14 people living in one, 3 bedroom home) and they only pay $50 a month for their home, while the government pays the remaining $750. They have 2 newer cars less than 3 years old, and have a fridge, and 2 freezers full of name brand food. They, along with so many others, have learned to play the system to their advantage. 2 single mothers with 9 kids, and all of the kids are (mentally challanged) which gives them more on their government checks. They wear the nicest clothes, and shoes, and go every 2 weeks to stock up on their free food. I point blank asked them how they were able to do what they do. They said it is a system that is taught throughout the community, and when they apply for these benefits, are shown how to get the most out of the system. I really do not fault them, as our government encourages them to do this, and keeps them in the position they are in (need voters). It becomes a cycle that they cannot, nor care to get out of. I know for a fact that one of the young mothers, with 5 kids, went to nursing school, and yet does not work. As she told me, "I can make more sitting at home, than working." It truly sucks that our tax dollars go to this kind of fraud!

You can't get cash back on a food card, unless you're dealing with a shady merchant.
