NY Food Stamp Recipients Shipping Taxpayer-Funded Groceries to Relatives Overseas
yet you couldn’t find a single Democrat in America who will admit there is rampant fraud and abuse in our welfare system

Quote:Food stamps are paying for trans-Atlantic takeout — with New Yorkers using taxpayer-funded benefits to ship food to relatives in Jamaica, Haiti and the Dominican Republic.

Welfare recipients are buying groceries with their Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) cards and packing them in giant barrels for the trip overseas, The Post found.

The practice is so common that hundreds of 45- to 55-gallon cardboard and plastic barrels line the walls of supermarkets in almost every Caribbean corner of the city.

The feds say the moveable feasts go against the intent of the $86 billion welfare program for impoverished Americans. […]

“Everybody does it,” said a worker at an Associated Supermarket in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, Brooklyn. “They pay for it any way they can. A lot of people pay with EBT.”
It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"
I tried to put my thoughts on this into a meaningful post, i failed, i am at a total loss of words to describe this.Shrug
