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.
Say what NYC?
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.
So that means more than 100 million Americans are on food aid.
Correct me if I am wrong here, but shouldn't that money feed oh say the people in THIS country?
$86 billion dollar food aid per year?
Is this not considered to be welfare fraud?
Plus we are already sending welfare to them via 'foreign aid' that hell should be called what it is globalized wealth redistribution.
If you need help fine, but to people and their families HERE.
With all the fraud and abuse within the current system we could probably cut out near a 1 trillions off spending
That is probably happening in other cities, and going to other countries as well.
Money for nuthin and the EBT's for free...It's song sing it, sing it all the way to 17 trillion dollars, and 3 years from now 20 trillion.
Me no like U.
