EBT...Bad For America!!!

Did you know that EBT (welfare) people can now withdraw cash from an ATM with their cards?

How the heck did we let this happen? It is bad enough that we have to support illegal immigrants and lazy Americans who abuse the system, but now we allow them to pull our cash out of the ATM to use for gambling, drugs, alcohol, overpriced urban clothiing, chrome and spinner rims if they so chooose? Where is the accountability? Look what the great liberal bastion of our country has become!! I fear California is the beginning of the end of this great country.

What is EBT?

Electronic Benefit Transfer, or EBT, is the distribution of food stamp benefits with a plastic debit card, making the issuance of state public assistance and federal food stamp benefits faster and easier through the use of electronic transactions. By using the EBT card, cardholders can access food benefits at the point-of-sale (POS) terminals of retailers authorized by USDA to accept food stamp benefits. In California, each county has the option of also providing clients with the ability to access cash benefits through automated teller machines (ATMs) and cash benefits at POS terminals.
