    Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) cards (the debit card equivalent of food stamps) have been at the center of a heated national discussion on welfare reform. There have been numerous reports of EBT card abuse and some states have started cracking down on card holders. Of course, whenever someone talks about welfare reform, one side of the political spectrum claims it’s “racially motivated.”

    However, even those claims might be put aside for a moment in Massachusetts after a heroin allegedly posted bail with his EBT card.

    “A convicted drug dealer…is the new face of welfare abuse, according to tough-minded lawmakers who are pushing…for a crackdown,” John Zaremba and Chris Cassidy of the Boston Herald write.

    Kimball Clark, 45, was arrested on Friday on drug related charges — again. Yeah, he’s a multiple offender.

    Massachusetts needs to work on its EBT requirements.

    Maybe Governor Romney can explain why their law is so lax. That would never fly where I live.

    An EBT card would have enough credit for bail?
