The perfect storm is brewing.
Earlier this year it was widely reported that possibly up to a million of the country’s poorest welfare recipients would lose their benefits. Now, the government has reportedly neglected to pay the EBT benefits for 8 days.
EBT Card Outage ~ link ~ This is not an accident!!! Now about 10 days that many desperately poor people are without the Food Stamps that they depend on to feed themselves and their children!!! Stirling
The ongoing food stamp outage could trigger nationwide riots across the country similar to the recent unrest in Baltimore and Ferguson.
Thousands – if not millions – of food stamp recipients have not gotten their benefits nine days into the month due to “glitches” in the electronic benefit transfer (EBT) system, and Americans are worried that if the outage continues, mass civil unrest will erupt.
