    Laws on what you are allowed to buy with EBT cards doesn’t matter…. The people sell the cards for around $50.00 then buy whatever they want with the cash.

    Holder’s Justice Dept. will get cracking on this because the law is obviously racist.

    Ohio Dan, apparently that’s what part time governor Deval Patrick believes.

    The only reason why Georgia is doing this is because the state is run by right wing Republicans.

    “… revoking benefits from repeat offenders …”

    It’s not their fault!

    I will punish the businesses for allowing fraud.

    Poor volkes, uhh … folks have no option but to game the system that is weighed against them!
