EBT Card Food Stamp Program – Why Work? [VIDEO]
By now you've heard about the problems with EBT Cards over the weekend. It was due to a glitch in the system, not the government shutdown as some thought. But the woman in this video puts a whole different spin on things.
I'll be honest, when I heard of the problem, I didn't even know what 'EBT' meant. Turns out, it stands for Electronic Benefit Transfer. The stories stemming from this glitch have been nothing short of insane, including Wal-Mart stores in Louisiana being ransacked!
I understand why people were upset. After all, if you were depending on your benefits to feed your family and didn't have the chance to plan ahead and fill your cupboards, I'd be frantic, too!
Who knew that people researched the government benefits available to them and were able to surmise that California would be the best state to live in and freeload off the system. I like Dominos and Subway, too! Where's my free $5 foot long? She asks why would you work with all of this available. Why work, indeed? Uggh!
