"Xerox, which hosts some of the infrastructure used by the EBT card system, told KSLA that a power outage during a routine maintenance test caused the
With that being said, I totally agree that these people should be charged or denied their next months benefits.
I understand these "People" need to eat, but they have their monthly spending limit on what they can get. I don't know about you, but in a picture I

I recently PCS to TX and I was sooooo glad to be shopping at HEB, they have their own brands here that are just as good, 25-50% cheaper and they have
meal deals with in house coupons that you get that'll will net you an extra $50-60 more in food for free, which in TX, $50 can go a long way at
