    There is some blame for those who abused the glitch.

    I would expect them to know how much in EBT funds they had available - and not try to overcharge that.

    Oh they knew that they were abusing it. I don't believe for one red hot minute that it was accidental.

    Maybe it's semantics, but I don't "blame" them. I think they played a role in the abuse, but I damn sure won't assign them blame unless one of them created the glitch.

    Off topic, but I have to add - which should make anyone relying upon the federal government exchanges under the ACA quake in their boots.

    Good evening V1.1

    I would think there are a lot of people working in small and medium sized business who are finding themselves without employer subsidized/provided healthcare insurance these days and if they are in a state that has refused to create an exchange under the ACA they will be at the mercy of the federal exchange. From the glitches I've been hearing about in that website, I wouldn't be feeling too confident about now.

    Anyway, wrong thread for these comments - bad me.

    My guess is the administration will be delaying the implementation for a year shortly after the new year...

    ...of which, without the glitch, they weren't supposed to have. Loan your buddy a dollar, and wouldn't YOU be mad if he reached in and took out a TWENTY?

    Now they'll have more food than they're supposed to have.
    Show me one law. One regulation. One directive that says these parasites are "supposed" to have that much. Entitlements are out of hand and the ignorant turn the other way.

    Good. Something tells me that every one of those parasites would continue to be fed just fine without their precious "foo stamps."

    Just look at these poor, poor single, unwed mothers who can't seem to keep their legs closed. Under 30....six kids...probably no job.



    Statistically (and generally) poor people are poor because they continue to do things, and make decisions that keep them poor. Including voting for 0bama.
