      Compare Obama Admin records as that was most recent. Also, Clinton staff in the State Dept and then post State Dept as her staff still had access to classified info. What about her? She mishandled classified info all the time and so did Huma. If the clearances are about questionable people handling classified info we don’t have to go back to the ’90s!

      In California, at least, NOTHING can be done with a guy like the shooter until he HARMS himself or someone. I suspect that is the same across the nation. A 72-hour hold can be inititated, but that is useless unless the”perp” has the medical insurance to cover it and the institution is looking to fill beds.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonk/wp/2018/02/12/trump-wants-to-slash-food-stamps-and-replace-them-with-a-blue-apron-type-program/

    Trump is proposing a solution to EBT (Electronic Benefit Transfer) fraud. People get these SNAP food stamp debit cards loaded with cash every month and they are only supposed to be accepted for basic food essentials. So the EBT recipients have found loopholes. They go to the market and offer to pay for a strangers shopping cart of eligible items using their EBT card and ask for half the amount in cash which they can then use to buy drugs, alcohol, cigarettes or whatever. That’s called 50 cents on the dollar. They have been known to take less even. Convenience store owners have been busted buying EBT cards for 50 cents on the dollar cash and going to the big discount warehouses to stock up on product for their store shelves in bulk and sell at full price. Fraud is rampant, talking hundreds of millions in fraud. I expect there are financial banks behind these EBT cards and they earn interest on all that cash flying around. Also millions of these cards like gift cards will always have a small balance they rolls. My state offers a debit card for your tax refund, someone is making money somewhere.

    So the proposal is to setup a system like Blue Apron, HelloFresh, Home Chef, etc. Let them order from a balance that can only be used on these online meal delivery companies. So basically going back to government cheese! Food delivery with choice but not like the commercial solutions. There will be less fancy choices. Trump hopes to cut SNAP by $17 billion in 2019 and more than $213 billion over the next decade! There fraud probably took just as much money from tax payers! This is bloody brilliant.

    As predicted the Left’s heads are exploding over this idea. I love it. You want to eat better go get a job. GDP is almost 4% and climbing unemployment is way down and dropping more. No way are we going to just give you a debit card to abuse anymore!

      I think they should go back to basics and provide only raw food packages such as bags of beans and other commodities.

      I think it was Michelle Obama, she with the toned arms, who wanted Americans to eat healthier. I agree with her, we need to eat better.
      The proposed revamp of the SNAP program may be a good way to accomplish this. Older Americans were creative and cooked healthy meals making do with basics. They were slimmer and healthier.

    • The problem is whatever you make it out to be.
      If you are eligible to get the card and meet the requirements then who cares what you are using the cards for?
      It has little to do with how it’s spent and everything to do with who is actually eligible.

      If there is something I’m not seeing, someone can let me know.

        I care, personally, what people are using the cards for. Here’s why. I don’t want them selling their EBT card for fifty cents on the dollar so they can get cash to score drugs. I don’t want my tax dollars spent in that way.

        Here’s a really good article that explains how a billion dollars a year of tax payer money used for EBT cards is used fraudulently. It explains how it is done, how it garners a very low jail sentence yet is vastly more financially rewarding as a crime than bank robbery, and why.

        In California people were using EBT cards at the casino until the State realized it and shut that down. They were also using them at exotic dancer gentleman clubs.

        After hurricane Katrina, FEMA handed out debit cards intended to buy essentials such as necessary clothing, etc. as victims lost everything. Instead, those funds were mostly stolen and abused. People were buying Gucci purses and all kinds of other things. Out of state people were defrauding FEMA and claiming they were victims. It went quickly out of control.

      Do i ask where the teddy bears and soccer balls are or do I act mature and let bygones be bygones? Obviously I haven’t forgotten and am not as magnanimous as President Trump.

      If it hadn’t been for President Trump we would not have the agenda we do. Cruz was not talking about deportation, enforcing the law or a Wall. Too little, too late, Cruz!

        Remember that in the CRITICAL Indiana primary Pence endorsed Cruz. Pence is also still openly supportive of the EVIL Bush cabal. Finally, Pence is the reason General Flynn had to resign.
