Default The Coming EBT Card Riots: What Will Happen When Government Entitlements Stop?

This is a scary scenario. What would happen if people who use food stamps (Or EBT cards) get cut off? Would they riot? The article brings up that possibility and gives examples of EBT Card systems that have shut down before like in Georgia and Florida leaving millions unable to use their cards. I encourage you to read this excellent article..............The coming EBT riots: What will happen when government entitlements stop?

Here is a example of what happened in Georgia. These people are totally dependent on the government and act like it's the end of the world..............

Interesting article -- yes EBT food stamp cards are corporate welfare --- but the liberals won't acknowledge that.

Yes, I would imagine the rioting would commence immediately and get very out of control quickly.

LOL. Who's going to cut off EBT cards? Get real and get your heads out of the right-wing world of (mis)information.

I totally agree with your post. It would be a situation that would put normal working people in jeopardy. It might would cause martial law to be initiated in areas.

Obama was elected. EBT cards will continue to increase the next four years.

LOL. Oh, yeah, and if Romney had won, EBT cards surely would have been cancelled.

Newsflash to the uneducated: The president doesn't control the welfare program. Congress does - the REPUBLICAN-controlled Congress.

You don't know that Obama got rid of Welfare to Work, so people don't even have to pretend to be looking for a job anymore to get aid? I think you are the one who is uneducated.

Keep listening to that right-wing media if you want to become dumber and dumber.
