    Not tough enough. They should lose their foods stamp eligibility, AND go to jail. It was theft, plain and simple.

    Dishonesty is dishonesty. How about all the poor people who didn't get an extra $700?

    What about them? Should they have all done that?
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Just the other day, I had an Obama Arizona iced tea and an Obama Dew. Someone bought a 1 lb bar of Obama chocolate. I wonder how much of Arizona iced tea sales (revenue) are EBT.

    I said at the time that I felt sorry for people in that situation, but if a business is not going to be paid, they should not accept the cards and had every right to refuse service. It was an unfortunate situation caused by Xerox, but was really just a temporary thing akin to the post office being a day late delivering a social security check when they used to do that. Sometimes you just have to roll with the punches when you are dependent on other folks for something, be it food stamps or anything else.

    Many were actually limiting to the $50 rather than not accepting EBT at all, particularly those stores like WalMart or grocery stores. Here in Cali though, almost everywhere that sales any food at all accepts EBT so it is not reasonable that all these places would need to have that "$50" limit in order for people to get food. As long as enough places still have it in the area.

    This seems fair to me. The store is responsible for allowing the "purchases". The recipients are responsible for trying to overuse their EBT cards knowing that they didn't have enough. Any charges would have to come from WalMart, not the government. And WalMart isn't likely to do it, especially given their policy on shoplifting.

    Yes, the WalMart managers who signed off on this should go to jail for defrauding the taxpayers.

    Why? Taxpayers didn't pay a dime.
