Jon Stewart Attempts to "Slay" Food Stamp Fraud Allegations; Misses Real Point

Even before the EBT cards when stamps were like paper money it was often abused. A guy comes into the convenience store and buys a candy bar with a 10 dollar stamp, takes the change and walks over to the liquor store and buys vodka. He is grinning like a mad man, thinks he's pulled a smart move but he is taking food out of his children's mouths and that is very common. With the EBT card it is even easier since one can withdraw cash from any ATM and there have been any reports of cards used in liquor stores, casinos, and brothels. Stewart is a clown and should stick to what he knows.

No, not SNAP benefits, only welfare payments, which are put on the same card. SNAP can only be used for food.

How are the two kept separated, assuming what you say is correct?
