i have only heard from this site about ebt and possibly other benefits being cut for november.
why isnt it big news if its a known thing? and of course the msm wont talk about it. but i mean with anyone? you would think there would be word on the street by now. i know plenty people with benefits of all types and they dont seem to have heard a thing :edit on 24-10-2013 by Bisman because: spelling error
On November 1st, the Food Stamp program will be drastically cut, as well as Veteran benefits payments, and likely other benefits, possibly Social Security and other benefits/services across the board. The first wave of government phase-out!
Stories like this do keep me on my toes. I recently applied for a job with a Texas-based private security company preparing for a contract with DHS and FEMA for work in 3 counties in Colorado. They are only hiring people with prior military and LE experience. They made it clear that you will be armed and have arrest authority. What could possibly be going down in CO that the DHS and FEMA need to hire additional personel? I need a job like all of us, but let me be clear. I am a patriot first. Should be interesting if hired.
About 5 million veterans may not receive benefits “they earned and rely on” on Nov. 1 because of the partial government shutdown, the Senate Budget Committee chairman warned Friday.

One of the questions you will be asked is "would you fire on an American Citizen" if you answer "no" you wont get the job. I made a recent thread on something similar called "Obamas New Army".
