    In the case of disability the cases are reviewed. And if one is determined to be able to work one of two things will happen.

    The point being, it is a voluntary program. If a similar program was applied to welfare recipients, which is what I was assuming you intended, I wouldn't want it to be voluntary, I'd want it to be mandatory and required to receive a check.

    you are correct, you can do great things with a small amount of money and some know how and effort. Not every business starts off earning millions of dollars. Most businesses make a living for their owners.

    Not at all if you know what ethnicity of people that are on Food-Stamps. Which just happens to not be those from the Black race. So the rest of it is nothing but that assuming U are use to doing around here.

    REGION, Mass. (WGGB)- After several reports of people misusing their tax-payer funded EBT cards, the Department of Transitional Assistance is trying to do more to stop that. The card’s purpose is to help pay for living essentials. Today, a committee voted to ban the use of the cards from places that don’t provide that- like strip clubs, tattoo shops, and nail salons.

    “They have a cash and food side so people try to buy cigarettes with their EBT cards, sure,” said store owner David Glantz of Buckeye Bros. Smokeshop.

    The EBT card works just like a debit card which means it can be used almost anywhere. This makes is hard to stop people from abusing the card. But the program hopes this proposal is a step in the right direction.

    But there’s another way around the system. Buckeye Bros. Smokeshops sells lottery tickets and tobacco products and only takes cash. The owner says he will see people use the ATM to take out money with their EBT cards then come back to his store to try to buy things they aren’t supposed to.

    This seems to happen in many places.

    The intention for the cash option was to be used for things like rent that can’t be paid for by a debit transaction. The department says misuse is difficult to track but hopes this proposal passes legislation soon.....snip~

    WASHINGTON - An investigation into food stamp fraud is getting attention on Capitol Hill.

    On Thursday members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform held a hearing to question officials who oversee the nation's food stamp program.

    The flawed system is costing taxpayers millions.

    The hearings started with what ABC15 Investigators and our partners at Scripps Howard News Service exposed in our investigation.

    “What whistleblowers have done for us could have prevented many of those stores from being back in business," said Rep. Darrell Issa, R-CA.

    Food stamp scams cost taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars each year. Store clerks secretly ring up a case of beer as a box of cereal or charge $100 on the chard and give $50 in return.

    Repeatedly gaming the system for cash means recipients are even buying big-ticket items.

    That's why the government permanently bans about 1,000 retailers nationwide for fraud every year. But our investigation revealed nearly a third of disqualified sites were approved to trade in food stamps again.

    “The next analysis on the level of waste has to be one that’s independent from the USDA,” Issa said."

    (CNSNews.com) -- During fiscal year 2012, the U.S. government spent a record $80.4 billion on food stamps, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), a $2.7 billion increase from FY 2011. (Fiscal year 2012 ran from Oct. 1, 2011 through Sept. 30, 2012.)

    According to the Monthly Treasury Statement that summarizes the receipts and outlays of the federal government, $80,401,000,000 went towards SNAP during FY 2012, which was a $2.7 billion increase from $77,637,000,000 in FY 2011.

    In total, nearly $106 billion was spent on food assistance in 2012, with $18.3 billion that went to “Child Nutrition Programs.”

    Total federal spending on SNAP has increased each year during President Obama’s first term in office. In FY 2009 -- when SNAP was still known as the “Food Stamp” program -- the government spent approximately $55.6 billion.

    By FY 2010, SNAP spending increased to nearly $70.5 billion. Between FY 2009 and FY 2012, SNAP’s budget jumped by approximately $24.8 billion.

    According to an April 2012 report from the Congressional Budget Office, SNAP outlays increased by $42 billion between 2007 and 2011, and the number of SNAP participants increased by 70 percent.

    During FY 2012, the U.S. government ran a $1.089 trillion dollar deficit, down from nearly $1.3 trillion in FY 2011.....snip~

    If the economy was getting so much better like Team Obama says.....then why are more people going on food stamps and welfare?

    The problem is that oversight also costs money. So, lets say we increase the Fed budget for oversight by $100m to - supposedly - save $150m. Next year Republicans are back in Congress complaining about how much money the Fed spends internally just to run the program. LOL!
