  •  My understanding is that SNAP cards, like the (8+ / 0-)

    coupons that preceded them, are intended to prevent fraud or misuse, to force people to purchase food and ONLY food with their SNAP benefits, and not gas, beer or cigarettes. This doesn't completely prevent such things, as I'm sure that there are plenty of places that will write out fake receipts for you for a cut. But it is the purpose and I'm sure cut down a lot on the fraud.

    I see no like purpose with being paid this way. This is outrageous. You should be able to do whatever you want with your pay without having your bank or method of spending chosen for you.

        Shh, don't tell anyone. I understand the government is listening, even going so far as to monitor the top crack and meth enthusiast sites and I need to keep this on the hush hush.

          a requirement that all transactions be made using a bank card with it's associated heinous Fee structures...say, it might work!

          It just might work!

          No more pot profits wrapped in  plastic and buried under the dead bodies in the backyard....yay!

          Oh BigBank™ I just wuv you now!
