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...
I challenge any lib who thinks these entitlement pukes are oppressed and living in poverty....drive through a low end hood, a place where few if any people actually leave for work in the morning...cruise thorough at night...you will see gigantic flat screen TV's glowing through the windows. They often have one in every freakin room. Not just the average 32 incher... these are home movie screens. Oh and cable too. IPhones, you bet!
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?
