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...
How many people do you employ? Just sneering at some poor person " Get a job", doesn't automatically produce a job for that person. Over ten million people are desperately looking for work and over twice that many have given up and depend on government programs to survive. If you shop at Wal mart or drive a foreign car you are part of American's unemployment problem.
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?
