Dirty Democrats’ Real Reason for Loving Food Stamps

In Louisiana some creative food stamp recipients have been using their EBT cards to get themselves an alternative type of “nourishment.”

A lingerie shop in Louisiana recently (in the last year) began accepting EBT cards (food stamps) as a form of payment for their goods. Locals have noticed a “surge” in activity at the store since they posted that they would be accepting all forms of payments, including food stamps. However, one wonders if the kinds of things being purchased in a lingerie store are really what the public has in mind when contributing to the welfare state.

The food stamp program is supposed to be used by needy families to make sure that they have the basic necessities of life – of which lingerie is not. There are real families all across America who could use the EBT program to make life a bit less harsh; instead we have abusers misusing the system to quench their lusts.
