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.
    I did not see that they had called corp. so, then let me rephrase that.... Was someone in the WalMart chain hel accountable?
    I cannot believe that the BOD would allow a loss of that magnatude to go unanswered.

    I don't understand the rationale, but Walmart corporate was "monitoring":

    Kayla Whaling, a spokesperson for Walmart, tells KSLA News 12 that the company was "fully engaged and monitoring the situation and transactions during the outage."

    "We did make the decision to continue to accept EBT cards (and purchases on WIC and SNAP) during the outage so that they could get food for their families."

    Asked whether Walmart would be taking the loss on any food purchased on the cards that did not show limits, or on the perishable food left behind in carts, Whaling would only say that "we monitored transactions during the outage."

The interest paid on T-bills to the SS is "our debt" so you are wrong on that part.
    That interest is paid to the American workers and the Ireasury would sell to others if SS hadn't bought them. If the trust fund runs out, benefits will be cut to match revenue, that is the law. That is unlikely to happen though we will fix the shortfall before then. SS will remain forever, like Medicare and now the ACA. They are part of our rights as Americans and the only way they will fail is if the US falls. You can't be looking forward to that can you?

    because you can get in your car and drive there the next day does not mean it is quite so easy a problem to resolve for those of the lowest economic strata

    One way, or another soneone has to pay for. They either ripped off the government, or the retailer. Either way you slice it, it's stealing.

    yep. someone will. wal mart. for failing to follow the protocol agreed to when authorized to accept SNAP benefits

    Seriously? Who gives a damn. What do you want to come from this discussion? Yes - the system didn't work right. Yes - it was an inconvenience. What more do you want to hear? No - no one died or would have died.

    The whole system relies on technology. Technology that is interwoven with other technologies and we expect it to work right 100% of the time, but it doesn't.

    Sorry
    It just doesn't.
    It does not work all the time.
    There is nothing we can do or say to change that.
    Accept it and move on.
    End of story.

    Life is full of that - you expect something to work, and it doesn't.

    If that manages to KILL SOMEONE - then they've got a lot more serious issues than their crappy transportation issue.

    ok, you dont give a ****
    which causes one to wonder why did you even choose to post
    to let us know it was no big deal for you
    alright. good to hear
    my suspicion is you are also not a food stamp recipient
    go deal with your first world problems while we discuss something of importance to the underclass - taking away the food stamps of many who did nothing wrong
