I believe this was planned.
Walmarts has an already connection with the government for food stamps users. This is how they make a lot of their money.
Something is very strange about this entire incident.
Now the news is stating the tax payer's will foot this shopping spree. It was initially going to be Walmart's loss.

You also believe in other stupid crap like Obama is an illegal, Jesus will forgive you, that the GOP is the light at the end of the tunnel and that big foot is real.

Then to top it off, she tells me not to post to her anymore and guess what she is replying to my post to others the same day.
NTR plays the same game.

Obama’s empathy for our nation has been demonstrated numerous times. That’s why republicans have labeled him as Obamacare. Now he is going to gather up the Tea and cast it out unto the waters of oblivion with the traditionalist republicans help.
Fortunately there is hope and it is being demonstrated, more and more every day, with the moderate republicans and the intellectuals of the party that are distancing themselves from the dysfunctional “Ideologues” of their party. Obama has aided them with his brilliance. A Tea bulwark has fallen.
Obamacare drives a wedge, fracturing republican party. Phoenix Arizona’s Governor Jan Brewer pulled off a major coup by distancing herself, along with a few staunch republican state senators, from their extremist elements within their party. Rallying the support by emphasizing “Moral and Monetarily Correct”. Stating “It’s pro-life, it’s saving lives, it is creating jobs, it is saving hospitals,” and “I don’t know how you can get any more conservative than that,”
Typical of the intoxicated Tea Party’s strategy. Derogatory remarks are let loose with no substance to any issue for debate. Going so far as to invoke some religious sniping by A.J LaFaro chairman of the Maricopa County Republican Committee, comparing Jan Brewer to Judas! Libertarian blog post by Tyler S. Boyer on the “Freedom Works” site, refers to Jan as “An unfortunate display of ineptitude.” Derogatory continues to surface from the right wing extremist. Reagan once said” Republicans should not speak ill of one another” Something the extremist have ignored, as they have demonstrated on various issues, ignoring supporting their constituents for some personal ego political ploy. Ignoring the facts that voters agreed, in 1996 and in 2000, to extend Medicaid coverage to childless adults, one of the main beneficiaries of the Medicaid expansion.
Mr. Coughlin states “Ideologues have their agendas” Mr. Coughlin goes on to say “and the part of the party that’s taking issue with the governor right now is all made up of ideologues”!
Moderate republicans will be required to expand their platforms to educate their constituents of the fallacies of the zealot extremist policies. Focusing on the more intelligent groups within their spheres such as women and independents.
Bruce Merrill, political behaviorist senior research at Morrison Institute for Public Policy of the Arizona University states “how truly fractured the Republican Party in Arizona is.” expressly due to Obamacare.
“The real brilliance of Barack Obama when he made Medicaid an all-or-nothing proposition,” giving states no option but to cover individuals with incomes up to 133 percent of the federal poverty line if they were to qualify for federal reimbursement,“was that he pitted fiscally conservative Republicans against one another,” he said.
Governor Jan Brewer views it as merely bruised egos that will heal with time.“Nobody likes to lose, and that’s what happened”. AND this is but one example of many.
Tea will not be served…. Out of service…

Sure. I have a good friend who is works on K Street. He and his wife have three children, two in high school and one almost there. She works from home as a medical transcriber when not shuttling kids here, there and everywhere. They have a terrific income and chose to bring a foster child into their home two years ago. Even though they can pay for EVERYTHING that child needs, they subscribe to Medicaid for him. Their other children are on another plan. They deposit the foster care stipend into their account, not one for his future, each month. While it beats living in a group home or state facility, the kid is being used to suck the system dry. By the way, that K Street consultancy works almost exclusively for GOP causes.
Well if the foster child was living in a group home he would still get medicaid.. Do you know how much they receive from the state?? I am sure its a whole lot less than some state facility..

We're already paying for it. Ever since Michelle Obama ran here mouth about healthy eating the price of produce has gone through the roof. If you have an EBT card I guess you don't notice.

To be fair, this has been going on for decades. Every time the news reports that something is healthy for you, the price goes through the roof.

Foster care in DC: An unflattering view of foster parents from a surprising source
I’m sure Marcia Lowry, executive director of the group that so arrogantly calls itself “Children’s Rights”(CR) would insist she’s the last person to believe most foster parents are in it for the money. But a recent op ed column she wrote for The Washington Post raises questions about how she really views the motives of foster parents.
As I noted in a previous post to this Blog, back in December, I wrote an op ed column for the Post decrying the fact that the D.C. Council was pitting programs to help keep children out of foster care against programs to help kids already in foster care, while ignoring far better places to cut. Such places include D.C.’s overuse of group homes and institutions (like the residential treatment centers exposed by Washington CityPaper’s Jason Cherkis in an excellent story last week) and the lavish pay rates for foster parents - the highest such rates in the nation.
Specifically, D.C. pays at least $10,428 per year per child. For older children, it’s more than $11,280 per year per child. The money is tax free. The government also covers foster children’s health insurance through Medicaid.
CR itself admits, in its own study, that this is more than enough to cover not only the basics for foster children but also every toy, game, after school activity, movie ticket, amusement park ride, etc. In short, all of the things foster children (and children in general) should have.(Check out CR’s “technical report” for the study so see all the things CR believes the government should reimburse.)
http://www.nccprblog.org/2011/01/foster-care-...
..........
My opinion is that these "needs" of foster children are the same needs that other children have but that their working class parents often must deny them owing to financial REALITY. I recall not being able to join the Brownies because my parents couldn't afford the uniform and dues, etc.(whatever)even though both always worked. The same was true for Girl Scouts, dance classes, etc. But, when I won a coveted spot as cheerleader and was told they couldn't afford my uniforms, I had had enough. I took my babysitting income (which bought my clothes), climbed the back fence and went into the next subdivision to the home of a graduating cheerleader and negotiated a buy of her uniforms - even though we weren't the same size. My mother relented and altered the skirts to fit me. Okay. I know you didn't care to read that, but my point is twofold: 1) I NEVER claimed to be blueblood (even though my mother was eventually on the social register and still is), and 2) foster children shouldn't be used as meal tickets and income supplement.
(See GR for further details on welfare assistance subsidies for a life so "well planned" and financially secure.)
Hypocrites!
Hmmmmm.. Perhaps you should read so much op-ed post..

How much will I be paid?

"You, as a foster parent, you do not get paid. For each foster child placed in your home, you will receive a foster care reimbursement to be used for the care, clothing and feeding of the foster child. The basic foster care rates currently range from $446 to $ 667 per month, depending on the age of the child. For children who have special requirements, there is a specialized care increment,$84.00 or $169.00 per month, determined by the child’s social worker."

I'm sure it's cheaper than a state facility. This is how much it cost for a prisoner here in CA.

Notice this was in 2008-2009.

Here's what foster parents receive in FL..

Financial Support for Foster Parent(s): Foster Parents are entitled to the following benefits:

Medicaid will pay for all medical expenses relating to the child.
Family Resource Center provides monetary compensation to foster families in form of a board payment. The Board Rate is $18.00 per day depending on the level of care the child needs.
In addition to the Board Rate, you will receive a separate check for the child(ren)’s allowance. The Allowance is $40.00 per month per child ages 14 through 18 years old.
You will also receive a once-a-year clothing allowance for any child that has been in Foster Care for six months of more. The Clothing Allowance is $200 a year.

Did you notice who owe-bama threatened when he wasn't getting his way on raising the debt ceiling?

He threatened to not pay:

- Social Security Retirees
- Military Retirees
- Social Security
- Disability
and
-Federal Retirees.

Now let this sink in really good...

- He did not threaten to stop payments to illegal aliens.
- He did not threatened to take frivolous benefits such as Internet access away from violent inmates.
- He did not offer to fire some of the thousands of unnecessary federal employees that he hired.
- He did not offer to cut down on his or his wife's frivolous gallivanting around.$20 Million already spent on family vacations.(One Million on a FL golf outing). All our money...why not?
- He did not threaten to not pay the senators and representatives or any of their staff.
- He did not threaten to take benefits away from welfare recipients or to stop the free cell phones they get.
- He did not threaten the food stamp programs.
- He did not threaten to reduce payments in foreign aid.
- He did not threaten to cut back on anything that involves his base voters.
- The list could go on and on. He is in full political mode!
Why are we allowing this person to destroy this wonderful country with his selfishness and his lies? Have WE lost our blooming minds!!!!!!!!
