With real money like they always do. EBT doesn't pay for that stuff.
 Quoting: Ddraig


Dude, there was a report out about 6 months ago on the abuse of EBT cards and not only were they being used for liquor and cigarettes, they were using them at strip clubs.

Re: Gov Shutdown will affect foodstamps!
They really want to cut EBT for a month or two for several reasons.

The social darwinist agenda: weak/mentally ill/sick people will simply starve to death. Desperate criminals will get shot to death by the cops.

The prison industrial complex agenda: those who will resort to riots and criminality will get to enjoy forced labor for in privatized prisons, where they can be slowly poisoned to death with GMO food. This is what the Fema camps are for, most likely.

Also, they could declare martial law as a test run, and then keep martial law up indefinitely by creating a perpetual emergency.
Ohwow!

Re: Gov Shutdown will affect foodstamps!
There is a lot of conflicting information out there as to what exactly will be affected by a shut down. This is the first time I've heard anything about food stamps. I did also hear there might be a shut down of section 8.

Not a big deal for those of us who have jobs and are not on the dole... unless you live in or close to a neighborhood where a substantial number of the residents are subsidized..

Please keep us updated op.

I hate section 8 - I pay a lot of money to live where I live - then section 8 moves in - so I pay to escape their self created low life lifestyles and the government makes me pay for them to move in next to me - I live where most everyone works and works and works, good focused productive people, then the 8 people arrive and lounge around the pools all day and slam doors instead of shutting them and will not speak to the rest of us because they know we know and they know we don't want them or need them and thought we had paid well to escape them. What a joke - fortunately they can never follow rules and have to move out as quick as they moved in, with another 8 replacing them unfortunately

Re: Gov Shutdown will affect foodstamps!
As of right now they don't have any idea how to fund it if the government shuts down. Will probably know more tomorrow or Monday and will update further.

Sorry to be cryptic but I can't say anything more at the moment, but Iwork for an agency that handles ebt cards.
 Quoting: Ddraig


Here is one way food stamps will be affected. I'm not very knowledgeable about this, but it's my understanding certain items are "written off" as cost of living deductions to get food stamps. Such items as: utilities, rent, and MEDICAL.

So if a person couldn't get stamps because of their income being more than whatever the poverty level is, they will more than likely be eligible for food stamps after they now will have to pay for medical insurance.

I don't know very much about Obamacare (I hate typing that name), so this may be addressed in the "Affordable" Care Act. Rest assured, a mess will come of this somehow.

And I read somewhere that Obamacare is somehow considered a mandatory pay, like Social Security/Disability. This means it will be funded regardless of the gov't going down or not. I'm confused by all this BS. We'll know soon enough.

No way I could have any sympathy for these parasites. It would be one thing if these people were nice and appreciated the help from the tax payers but every one of them I've seen in the super markets are rude, obnoxious and look at working people like they hate you. They make me sick.

If they had any decency they would quit giving credit to the Government for the freebies and thank the tax payers. I have not seen them ever take out an ad in the newspaper thanking the tax payer for their handouts. The hell with them...let the bastards starve for all I care.

I suppose they are just too stupid to understand that this free ride cannot go on forever before they destroy the host. They will be the first ones out of here if TSHTF and they haven't even figured that out either. Everyone hates them and their attitudes just makes it 10 times as bad. They will reap what they have sown and have no one other than themselves to blame for the hostility vented toward them.

I know some dogs eat well... Heard this the other day. Apparently someone was trying to buy dog food for their dog, and the clerk wouldn't let them because it wasn't allowed per their ebt card. They told their kid put the dog food back and go get 20 pounds of ground beef. EBT pays for that, so that dog is eating pretty well.

Oh, they'll find a way to pay for foodstamps. Unless they're ready to declare martial law. Talk about an angry mob beating down your door - when people can't feed their children they'll lose it.
A flag flown upside down is a symbol of a country in distress. As a result of the many traitors and enemies inside our own government and the many unconstitutional acts, legislation and atrocities passed and/or committed against our lives, liberty and property, as well as a reckless foreign policy meant to enrich and empower an already wealthy group of 'elites' while wreaking havoc around the globe and committing atrocities against large numbers of innocent peoples in the name of 'spreading democracy', the United States is no longer a free country and the lives of its citizens as well as the lives of our brothers and sisters around the globe, are in dire danger and distress.

OK. What's YOUR solution for all this? Tell them to get a job? There are no jobs, and certainly none that will pay enough to put food on table and keep a roof over the head. So, again I ask what's your solution? The jobs were all shipped to China decades ago.

There are about 100 million people on these food stamps, that's apprx 1 in 3 Americans. So they are all parasites?

You remind me of a guy I used to work with, he used to talk like you all the time, he lost his job, lost his house, everything, he now works at walmart and has to have food stamps to support himself and his family. Another parasite right? I bet he doesn't talk like that anymore. Could be you on the government food program tomorrow, don't throw stones.

Food Stamps are a result of inflation and out sourcing.

It will take 6 months to a year for a shut down to effect food stamps. Most government shutdowns last a few days or weeks at most. I forget the name of the Act this is protected under, USA today just did a run down on it if you need more information.
