the EBT cards are for sale.... the cards do not include a photo ID, so a recipient who is looking to sell his or her benefits for cash can simply do so and then report them stolen or lost and be issued a replacement...they could also charge a buyer much more, and never report the card as missing, effectively transferring their entitlement benefits for cash....
It's done all the time just as was food stamp fraud although much easier to track.

Recently in Daytona a couple of convenience/grocery stores were busted for buying EBT cards for a fraction of the worth and a gal who's son owned a restaurant was buying them then purchasing his restaurant supplies. She was shopping at Sam's and elsewhere whipping out a half dozen cards at a time to pay the cashier.

Nobody gives a sht and the penalties are slight.

There are some legendary stories about food stamps.

We both know you don't use sources liberals cite, you demonize them as lies. Step out of the closet, you've been running a "conspiracy" right under our noses for months. I've suspected it for quite a while but now I'm sure. By constantly pointing out phony conspiracies on the left no one would think you are running one yourself. Nice try.
Hey its a good gig, you should be proud to get paid for herding these right wing sheep. Actually I'll bet in reality your political leanings are left. Nice work. wink. wink.
HMMM. You might be onto something there. By posting like a lunatic, he casts doubt on the sanity of right wing extremist. Thereby, pushing people more to the left. Good observation.

Are you kidding? The loony right wingers here are feeding off this guy. DBWriter gives them tons of phony information to pass on to their lemming friends. They get erections every time DB uncovers another phony conspiracy. The last one's my favorite, Obama stealing software! That's when I began to suspect DB is really a paid information peddler with liberal bias. I figured this was so obvious he was playing with teabagger morons to see just how gullible they were, giggling while he typed.

Businesses issue the same types of contracts to consultants, just to establish contract formalities, but then separately qualify the consultants for each task, normally requiring competitive bids on a task basis.
The government could have, and should have, asked several consultants to submit proposals for work of this magnitude, detailing their qualifications, project approach, and estimated cost.
But all this masks the fact that the problem is with ObamaKKKare itself, not with the website.
You know if I were a conspiracy theorist and I know some of you are and they fact that Obama has beaten the Republican Tea Baggers at every turn, I could suggest this roll out is going as planned, glitches included.

All this talk about glitches has taken the conversation away from the law itself and the fact that it was/is unpopular although polls do show it's gaining approval.

Interesting eh?

Well, it is a good thing that ObamaCare subsidies will be doled out on the honor system and not have to verified. Because other than harrassing Tea Party people or anyone who disagrees with Obammy, they can't handle the jobs they have now.

IRS conned for $110B in the last decade

One in five dollars paid out under the Earned Income Tax Credit — one of the nation’s largest anti-poverty programs — went to people who didn’t deserve them, according to a stinging report.

IRS Inspector General J. Russell George said investigators found taxpayers who didn’t qualify for the credits received more than $110 billion over the last decade.

“The IRS should be commended for implementing numerous processes to educate Americans and identify and prevent improper EITC payments,” George said in a statement.

“Unfortunately, it is still distributing more than $11 billion in improper EITC payments each year and that is disturbing.”

IRS efforts are hampered by unscrupulous tax preparers as well as honest families that have trouble figuring out how to calculate the credit, George said.

The agency said it is concentrating on rooting out cheats and mistakes.

“Every year, the IRS conducts 500,000 EITC audits as part of a broader enforcement strategy, and EITC claims are twice as likely to be audited as other tax returns,” the agency said.

It claimed to have prevented “nearly $4 billion in improper claims each year” and said it is “committed to continuing to work to reduce improper claims.”

In 2011, more than 27 million families received nearly $62 billion in credits.

The credit is attractive because, if it is larger than a filer’s income tax bill, the IRS will pay the difference.

That's the problem. "Give them a hand" is supposed to be temporary and not a way of life passed on from Baby Mama to Baby Mama.
