    The people who are solely responsible for this are those who bought beyond what they knew their benefits were. There are occasionally banking glitches where a number is off and someone ends up with way more money than they were supposed to, that doesn't mean they get to go on a shopping spree.
    Eventhough every other store in the nation either denied use of EBT cards or at least limited them to $50 each, including other WalMarts around the country. These two WalMarts are the only ones reporting that they allowed people to buy as much as they wanted with their EBT cards.

    If the bank tells them to keep it or that there is no problem with their account, they can in fact keep and spend the money.

    I think you better take that to the philosophy forum.

    Without passing the cost on to their customers, anyway.
    Using your logic a corporation would keep on raising their prices to make more money to pay more taxes. Good for Obama and liberals that think there is no end to the money supply to spend on entitlements. Yep the more you tax business the more they raise prices to pay more taxes. Really good for Obama but bad for the consumer. Do you get it?

    And B...there is a world of difference between a hurricane bearing down on your city and exploiting a glitch in the EBT system. Just like there is a world of difference between scavenging for clean water and rolling a stolen big screen TV through 3 feet of water.

    I don't imagine there is any need for that. A corporation can't do anything without the actions of people. It can't earn or make anything on it's own.

    Why do we insist on treating these adults like children that don't know better? I was on unemployment for a short time after getting out of active duty a few years ago, My check was $238 a week, like clock work. If one week $238,000 showed up in my account, I had enough common sense not to go out and buy a house with it.

    Anyone who has served in the Army has probably experienced an over payment at one time promptly followed up by a no pay, to recoup that additional amount. I see no reason why this should not be the case here, I'd prefer even a penalty for taking advantage of the system.

    Where do you get the idea only people can pay taxes?

    A corporation can earn profits, through the work and investment of its employees and investors, it can pay taxes through the same workers based on its profits. Business's have long had to pay tariffs and other forms of taxes, they certainly can pay business income taxes.

    No, business owners earn an income through their own work and the work of their employees and investors. A profit for a business occurs when the amount of revenue gained from a business activity exceeds the expenses, costs and taxes needed to sustain the activity. The only entity to take home the profit are business owners that are people. Only people can earn an income and only people can pay taxes.

    Pathetic that things got out of hand - how much time elapsed? Word doesn't spread THAT QUICKLY. Things take time for that type of thing to get out . . . So *obviously* people checked out left and right - and it was A-O-K for a long while.

    Stupid.
