should of said if there is one meaning adult
what about the persons holding the ebt card shouldn't they be reprimanded as well. that's the way you would also clean up some of the fraud. At least they have taken some action rather then turning a blind eye to it all. the other day I was in seven eleven on Main st Lewiston. There were three children there none being older then 10 years old purchasing ice cream for the three of them and then putting the code in for the ebt card as the adult is there is one let this be known to the child. Only in America
there is so much abuse with these cards. some of them have up to 7000.00 on their cards. go to walmart and see how some of the carts are over flowing with food while as for myself a cash payer I have a hand basket. Is everyone blind to what is going on with this welfare state. I was told some of them have a different colored card that is a federal card that allows them to buy anything even cars and land. that was told to me yesterday when I was having difficult emotions with the fact that while I was at walmart the desparity between the way "they can shop" and how I "have to shop" as a senior citizen.
