    Re: Did you know the government runs ads encouraging food stamps?

    I was all happy about it being Friday and all, and then I watched that vid. Thanks Jon, I'm pissed off now!

    Just curious, how many minutes do you get with this phone? If its intention is to provide low income people with access to emergency services, how many minutes do you really need? 5 minutes? I can't imagine anyone needing much more than 5 minutes a month to call 911. What fvcking scam. I really hate the word free here. It isn't free, the rest of us are paying for it. FVCKK!!!!!!

    I believe they get about 250 minutes AND 150 text messages.

    If where they live is such a sh.thole that they need 250 minutes a month to call 911, maybe our tax dollars should be spent fencing in those sh.tholes to keep the criminals captive.

    $43,000 of Kansas Welfare Money Withdrawn From ATMs at Strip Clubs, Casinos

    Tens of thousands of dollars intended to buy gas, groceries and other necessities for Kansas welfare recipients may have been spent on strippers, liquor, and gambling during a three-month period studied by a watchdog group.

    The investigation, conducted by KansasWatchdog.org, flagged $43,000 dollars in questionable spending by Kansans receiving Temporary Assistance for Needy Families.

    "From August to October 2012, Sunflower State welfare recipients withdrew more than $43,000 from ATMs at places like Golden Eagle Casino in Horton, Vegas Video Adult Superstore in Wichita and G Spot, a Junction City strip club, just to name a few," writes Travis Perry of Kansas Watchdog.

    As part of the TANF program, federal taxpayer dollars are moved to the states in block grants, with the goal of helping to move find jobs – “and turn welfare into a program of temporary assistance,” says the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. States give needy people debit cards (Electronic Benefit Transfer or EBT cards), which can be used to make purchases or withdraw cash from ATMs.

    In Kansas, a family of four can get up to $497 a month.

    KansasWatchdog found that the largest amount of questionable ATM withdrawals came from smoke shops and cigarette retailers, totaling $19,302.42 during the three-month period. Cash advance and payday loan locations came in second ($8,578.10), followed by liquor store withdrawals ($6,500.98), casinos ($4,532.25), bars and restaurants (1,298.45) and miscellaneous locations ($3,271.44).

    Here are some examples of the ATM locations from which welfare cash was withdrawn: This is not a complete list:

    Speedy Cash – $3,621.50
    Ace Cash Express – $4,956.60
    7th Street Casino – $2,455
    Buffalo Run Casino – $218
    Choctaw Casino – $746
    Golden Eagle Casino – $704.75
    The Legends shopping center – $1,056
    Smoke Eazy – $922.50
    Bullfrogs Live – $102.50
    Dave and Busters – $387.50
    The Kansas Department for Children and Families (KDCF) website says recipients would be declined if they attempted to use their EBT cards to buy tobacco, alcohol, and lottery tickets as a direct purchase. However, a majority of these locations have ATMs.

    Angela de Rocha, the communications director for KDCF, said there's no way to stop questionable withdrawals.

    “You can take your Vision card into a strip joint or Disney Land or Graceland or wherever and use that to get cash. There’s nothing we can do about that. We can’t control that,” de Rocha previously told the group.

    The data, which Kansas Watchdog eventually received through an open-records request, shows that between August and October 2012, $1.5 million in transactions were made by Kansas TANF recipients. Questionable withdrawals amounted to less than 3 percent of the total.

    I didn't realize they could use EBT for cash withdrawls. If thats the case, why do we always hear about people selling their EBT cards or offering to buy people groceries for in exchange for cash?

    Re: Did you know the government runs ads encouraging food stamps?

    Im guessing they are using a TANF(temporary assistance for needy families, or whatever the equivilant in your state) which are cash bennies. Food cards are only for food afaik.

    The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing the greatest amount of free meals and stamps EVER.
    Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us to "Please Do Not Feed the Animals". Their stated reason for this policy "... the animals become dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves."
