You see the signs everywhere: "We accept EBT." Fast-food restaurants do. Clothing retailers do. Auto repair shops, liquor stores and even sushi joints are joining the club. "EBT" stands for the federal government's electronic benefits transfer card, which is intended to provide poor people with food stamps and cash...
Alright, so our President has chosen to surround himself with Academics instead experienced advisors. Like Progressives before him...the President is realizing the laboratory models failed to account for human nature. So now they learn what becomes of most humans that are constantantly paid to do nothing. What is different about this President is that he really doesn't care. So long as money is redistributed, his primary goal is met. In honor of LBJ, President Obama doesn't care what this eventually does to poor Americans.
From New York to New Mexico and across the dependent plains, welfare recipients are getting sauced on the public dime. Drunk, besotted, bombed. But while politicians pay lip service to cutting government waste, fraud and abuse, they're doing very little in practice to stop the EBT party excesses. Where's the compassion for taxpayers?
