Good News: Computer glitch takes out food stamp EBT cards...

I hope they never get it fixed. When I was young, we were poor and didn't have food stamps. I didn't starve to death. I don't know anyone who starved to death. Making it easy for people to be lazy is a poor plan. Only the very elderly of severely disabled should get food assistance. The rest need to find the motivation to take care of themselves. Hunger is a powerful motivator.
BOSTON (CBS) – A possible glitch in a computer system upgrade was causing major problems nationwide with the Electronic Benefits Transfer System on Saturday, as a countless number of shoppers found themselves stranded at the register.
Reports from around the country began pouring in around 9 a.m. on Saturday that customers’ EBT cards were not working in stores.
The glitch, however, did not appear to be part of the government shutdown. At 2 p.m., an EBT customer service representative told CBS Boston that the system was currently down for a computer system upgrade.

I am more Conservative than Liberal, but this is not good news. Think of the innocent babies.

Wow, you're a complete idiot! This is never good news, sure their are irresponsible people, but those people do not represent for people who actually need food stamps and actually maintain jobs and families with low-income.
