    Not practically stealing. It IS stealing. Their benefits should be docked 25% each month until the overages are returned.

    That's one of the problems with OPM (other peoples money)
    It is very addictive, and people just keep wanting more.

    WalMart is as guilty as the people.

    Haven't you learned yet, it's never a corporation's fault, it's ALWAYS either the government or the little people or both. Never our corporate overlords. Facism, Communism, Socialism, all wrong in their attempts to tag Obama, or Democrats, or Republicans,.. what we have here and pretty much globally is an oligarchy.

    I guess they could just say no and let people starve to death. That's not terribly P.C., now is it?

    What...you've got a whole bunch of people who are used to getting free stuff and then something happens where they have an opportunity to get MORE free stuff and people are surprised when they take advantage of the deal? What do you figure "entitlement" means?

    Really? What else was the store supposed to do? They had two options:
    1. Nobody gets to use an EBT until things are fixed or;
    2. You just take people's word for what's available.

    WalMart is going to end up taking the hit on this because they will only be reimbursed whatever the cardholder's limit was.

    According to the new liberal economic paradigm, this little mishap is a good thing. The poor going on spending sprees helps them out, boosts demand, the demand causes companies to hire more people, those people then spend more money, and then those businesses earn and invest and hire more, the economy grows, we reach full employment, and our debt problems are resolved.
