    what did they steal from the government?

    as i see it, nothing
    which then causes me to question why the government/jindal has intruded on this

    but show us what the government lost such that the governor's participation should be found reasonable

    to rescind the SNAP benefits of those who were allowed to leave the store with more food than they had SNAP benefits to pay, because the retailer failed to follow the $50 limit protocol

    the retailers failed to follow the protocol they agree to when approved to accept SNAP benefits
    and they sustained losses as a result
    so, the retailers are now entitled to pursue legal recovery efforts against those it can PROVE knowingly purchased more than they had funds to pay for
    jindal's actions indicate every SNAP beneficiary who exceeded their card limit did so knowingly, and he is now punishing them by rescinding their benefits. he is thereby punishing innocents with the guilty. what a surprise many of you agree with such unjust, and unjustifiable action by the government [/sarcasm indicator for those who needed it]

    Does the meaning of the word 'attempt allude you, and how is it in the tax payers interest not to punish such attempts?

    as i see it, nothing
    which then causes me to question why the government/jindal has intruded on this
    As I already made clear, your political interests do not trump the rational; perspective here, and i'm sure you would not continue providing charity to someone who continually tried to pick your wallet (even if those attempts bordered on the buffoonish)

    but show us what the government lost such that the governor's participation should be found reasonable
    Again, if you want to ignore the clear *ATTEMPT* to exploit this error that is on you, and is solely your issue to deal with. All I need to do is point to the fact and ignore your ideological rigidness. That's the beauty of reason.

    you keep saying that, but your problem is people like me, who support this, but hate the tea baggers.

    but since the buyers were unabe to determine how much was actually available on their cards at the time of purchase, establishing that they knowingly exceeded their card limit is going to be difficult to prove
    intent.... I'd repost all the pictures of the empty store shelves and abandoned carts and text messages to show 'intent' but frankly, it's enough just to watch you do your normal dance defending the indefensible.

    That's a fact of life - sometimes you get to some place and find it's not open. *shrug* Oh well. "Sorry for the inconvenience."

    Does anyone know if the store managers were fired for not implementing the correct protocol?

    It would be kinda hard to do that when they actually called corporate and got okayed by corporate to allow the people to continue to make the purchases. I believe most of the managers must have simply followed protocol without bothering to call. Either that or they got hold of different people. It is kind of strange that only 2 stores would call and get told to ignore protocol when dealing with such issues, and then the stores simply say "well we felt that was best", eventhough most other stores had to have operated with a limit or something.
