“They said it was money from Obama. They said sign up and we’d get $1,000.”
“I gave them a copy of my benefits card and my Social Security card.”
There was a raid today here in Boston by the Feds, cracking down (at least a little) on EBT fraud. Why is this fraud so rampant? Because when you give money away, the people who want it will always work harder to get their hands on it than the people handing it out will work to make sure it goes to the right place.
Every time you hear Gov. Patrick complaining about EBT reform, every time you hear some social worker saying that we should just hand out cash to people rather than limit their benefits to necessities, remember this video above.
