*sigh* You'd think that if you had a Supplemental Nutrition program you'd have safeguards in place to make sure the money was going on nutrition rather than junk. So sad.

another example of how it pays to follow the money trail--and how much do those banks charge if you use the EBT other than according to their limits and restrictions forcing you to spend in fewer places?

Yep and the real unemployment rate is still closer to 27% than the government will admit. Most of the jobs created are semi permanent or contractual government jobs. It doesn't exclude all those who gave up looking for work either. "What depression?" says King Barky and Queen Bossy. This one you privileged, pampered buffoon. Of course martial law looms covertly below the horizon and a global conflict shouldn't surprise anyone in the next three to five years.

Noted. Yup--leave it to the Banksters to profit off the starving unemployed Americans. No wonder these greedy basterds want to keep the majority of us without jobs. Welcome to the "TRICKLE UP" economy.

I do not care who exposed this type of fraud. This is real and not the fake voter fraud the repukes continue to spew out of their mouths.

What makes me mad is the government is doing nothing to halt the fraud.

Corporations look for easy ways to promote themselves and increase their "Profit Margin", no matter who they harm, especially if thy are HARMING those who are looked down upon by society. People Corporations think" We the People" won't stand up for. SHAME on them and the same shame on us IF we LET THEM continue to do it.

"A major fear is that SNAP cuts could wrongly target the programís central mission to feed the hungry, when cuts should target the private players who harness the program for their own gain."

I remember reading an article last year about the SNAP programme in New York and watching a short related video which certainly exposed JP Morgan Chase on this issue.

The USDA needs to divorce itself from the lobbyists, the food conclomerates and JP Morgan Chase. The USDA needs to see that proper regulations are in place so that the programme can do what it is designed to do --- bring more nutritious food to those in need. It needs to cover the staples and no alcohol, tobacco, junk food etc.
