  • A Policy Junkie Food Stamps Extravaganza! [View instapost]
    My nephew's school has such a high percentage of free-lunch eligible children that it's cheaper for the school to just serve lunch for free rather than file all the paperwork to get subsidies. It's also a great place to buy excess money on EBT cards; the going rate is around 50 cents for $1 worth of food stamps. The big business is buying an EBT, using the balance to buy candy bars for 50-60 cents, then resell the candy bars at school for $1 - to the very kids who are supposedly too poor to afford food. The saddest thing is that because of our nation's out-of-control spending, these same kids will be forced to pay for their own upbringing in the form of future taxes.
