    but then you had ready access to transportation. a minor inconvenience as you could return with your own car on another day

    no so much for the guy who lives in the boonies and just used his last dollars to pay for a ride into town to go grocery shopping

    but the governor would not be the person who would make a public statement terminating your ability to write a check in the future. the party you stole from would have to do the legal work to recover their loss

    so, let the retailers deal with the fraud perpetrated against them. let them sue the food stamp recipients who defrauded them out of food exceeding what was actually available on their cards
    jindal is just grandstanding to impress the tea party
    I have absolutely no sympathy for individuals who blatantly tried to take advantage of a assistance program, if it was those directly receiving those funds or those who facilitated those purchases. And being that the current solution is to let walmart eat their losses and canceling the benefits of those who tried to exploit the bug, I fail to see how either side of the political isle can claim unfair treatment here. Well, besides rational individuals not catering to their political interests.

    And to that, i say tough **** to the lot of you

    they clearly attempted to exploit an assistance program. Why anyone would simply excuse that is beyond me

    but wal mart and the other affected retailers who accepted cards that were without enough in the account to cover the purchases should be responsible for effecting their own recoveries. it was their mistake to accept those cards for purchases exceeding $50. jindal has no need to step in
    except to show the teabaggers he is still relevant

The bank will come back and bite your behind.
    in your example the bank would be the one to pursue recovery of any losses
    and in this circumstance the retailer (wal mart) should pursue recovery

    then why the **** is jindal intruding himself in this matter

    In Justabubba world maybe. You got an EBT card? You got no responsibility to use it right. It must be a bad place you inhabit.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Ideology. Poor people can't be bad, their poor.
