Remember when the EBT system went down for a few hours last month and recipients took the opportunity to loot two Walmart stores in Louisiana? One of the unintended consequences of government dependence is that people think that the free money will never go away, no matter how they act. William Bigelow at Breitbart reports:
Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal’s office will cancel food stamp benefits for anyone who participated in a fraud and shopping spree catalyzed by an EBT malfunction.
More than 12,000 people were sent an insufficient funds notice when the problem with the EBT cards was fixed on Oct. 12; those who transgressed may lose their EBT cards for a year.
This is great news, though it’s only a matter of minutes before Eric Holder takes the state of Louisiana to court.
