    Now that obozo has removed the work requirements for welfare, millions more are joining the dole rolls. Maybe if they had to go thru the shame of producing actual food stamps at walmart, they'd decide to get a job. And lets make food stamps useable for food only .

    The snap benefits are only good for food
    Obama didn't remove the work requirement
    The card saves tax payers money and streamlines programs

    And you're an idiot.

    Other patrons only see a card and for all they know it's an ordinary debit or credit card. Go back to food stamps and make them a gaudy color like day-glo pink

    They're supposed to be for food only. But at the point of sale (POS) it isn't always enforced.

    Nonsense. You can't buy anything that's not food with your snap benefits, the register can tell and only deducts food.

    You're the one who wants to shame people, and you have the audacity to accuse others of being filled with hate? :lol:

    Are you kidding? With the old stamps they used to have to rip them out of the book infront of the cashier and everybody else in line, no pre ripping allowed. That was embarassing. It also provides incentive to get off asap if you don't like the embarassment. The EBT cards they just whip them out loud and proud, why get off free money?
