She's not the only one... there are so many people selling EBT cards, providing food for half price it's crazy. Sometimes you get 10 people living in one section 8 housing unit at $75 to $100 a month. THE PROBLEM IS THERE IS NO GOVERNMENT OVERSIGHT... NOBODY IS CHECKING ON THEM, AND NOBODY IS PROSECUTING.... SO THE SHOW WILL GO ON. PEOPLE LIKE THIS SHOULD HAVE BENEFITS TAKEN AWAY FROM THEM FOREVER, BUT THE BLEEDING HEART LIBERALS PROVIDE THE SCUM WITH EVERYTHING THEY WANT AND NEED. WHAT A JOKE!!!
THESE PEOPLE WILL BE THE FIRST TO PERISH WHEN THE SHTF, THE STRONG WILL SURVIVE AND THEY WILL GO.

Crazy- I've seen these articles so many times being incorrect. It's sad that the papers don't do their own investigating. Reports are always made about ACCUSED without the facts. It's just another way to slander. Why not report the whole story when a case is resolved rather than causing families and children extra stress?

From the story:
In total, Patronick received $3,526 in food stamps for which she was not eligible. She is currently waiting for her preliminary hearing. She may face up to seven years in prison.

The good news is, she will have a free ride for seven years if she goes to prison.

Lisa, it's NOT about accusing anyone unjustly, or slandering anybody. It's about the truth.

There are some people, families, generations of folks who live off the system. They have NO intention of getting a job, they never did work and are totally dependent upon the government for "assistance".

Pennsylvania as many other states are in financial ruins, and the money isn't there. You can only borrow so much, you can only raise taxes so much, you can only redistribute the hard working people's money so far until it all falls apart from within. More importantly, the people has had enough of the careless wasteful spending while watching other people that do not contribute to society whatsoever.

I guarantee that someday soon it will all come to a screeching halt, the checks will STOP and the EBT cards won't work anymore, and budget cuts will be made to all of these benefits first. NONE of these people sitting on their a$$es will have a pot to piss in and will be $hit out of luck... mark my word, watch and see....

David the articles posted in the papers these days ruin people's lives and causes more harm than good. I just don't beleive it's fair to advertise accusations before a person is found guilty. Many times I've seen news stories that have added incorrecect information or leave out important information just to make a better gossip. No one knows the truth or all of the facts until a case is closed, accused is only one side of a story.

That day can't come soon enough. Time for all those who refuse to contribute and pull their own weight to find a way to support themselves without a welfare check.
