BREAKING: HUGE Food Stamp Fraud Operation Taken DOWN By Operation Stampede
It’s time to just say it. Obama was THE “welfare President.”
It’s surprising how rapidly Liberals defend the failed welfare system until you realize that they’re using it to their own advantage. They don’t want to empower people and raise them out of hard times with a little help.
They want to TRAP these poor souls by getting them “hooked” on the drug of “free” government money. They aren’t required to work or even pass drug testing, and if they want more they have to keep voting for Liberals.
This latest Food Stamp bust is really to be expected. When big government get’s involved in charity it becomes not holy, but demonic. The food stamp program is filled with corruption and fraud.
The political process usually begins with good intentions, in this particular instance those receiving Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), also known as “food stamps” are allowed to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables at open farmers’ markets…no doubt a good thing.
However both the welfare recipients and vendors in the Opa-locka Hialeah Flea Market who were willing to swipe the EBT cards of the benefit recipients, for a cut of the cash, rather than actually selling any produce to the customer. The raid was the largest food stamp fraud bust in U.S. history.
The U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Florida, said Wednesday; “These retailers are flagrantly abusing the public trust by stealing millions of dollars from the federal food stamp program that is intended to provide low-income households with their needed basic provisions of food and nutrition,” However there wouldn’t be abuse of the system, if welfare receipts didn’t sell their benefits in the first place.
Earlier this week, 22 people were charged with 15 arrested in relation cases of known food stamp fraud costing tax payers $2.4 million, with an additional 13 million traced in questionable EBT card transactions in South Florida.
