    Kevin could try for a stint on “Dancing with the Stars”… It worked for Tom DeLay.

    In Louisiana they had a prime example of what is happening in Washington. Best example to explain raising the debt ceiling and it is not made up but real. A computer glitch caused the food stamp cards to have no limit. People on food stamps raided the local Wal-Mart and stripped the shelves. The police had to be called by the store to restore order; it was described as worse than any Black Friday sale. Evan though these people knew there was limits on their cards and that the money to pay for it had to come from somewhere they grabbed what they could without any concern for the consequences. One woman had $700 of items in her cart when in reality her card only had 49 cents on it. This is the democrats, not carry that they really do not have money on their cards, not caring who has to end up paying for it. Instead of living off of the amount of money they actually have. In other word having a budget actually based on the amount of money they have coming in they just scream every couple of month to raise the debt ceiling. If you apply the same logic to the situation in Louisiana you would say the people on food stamps are right, that they shouldn’t have a limit on their cards. Not one of you would agree with that but yet you allow it to happen on a much larger scale. obama and harry reid are the food stamp user’s that want no limit on their cards.

    Just google Wal-Mart food stamps and you will get the story. I don’t know where your getting your information about them only being good for $4.50 a day. They get something like $300 put on the card depending on the size of the family and they can spend all at once grocery shopping. Which would be the smart way to shop, buy real food in bulk and make it last.

    All the people with the cards that were abused, should lose their cards for good. Such behavior has no place in this country!

    I saw the picture of the row of carts. The checkout people should know this was fraud, and refuse to process the customers. No matter the consequences.

    @Robert Tatro

    They called and were told by their management “we don’t have a choice, if the card goes through we have to accept it”.

    But my whole point is that this is exactly what the senate is doing.

    $4.50 per day for food for one person? I did it for about five years, between 2004 and 2009. (Grad school and tight budgeting.)
