The Last Laugh: Welfare recipients using cards at casinos...

This is too much. Back when welfare started, families were given their groceries, bagged for them. Then, do to complaints, they were moved to food stamps to use at grocery cash. Well, then that changed, due to embarrassment of having to use food stamps, to debit cards. That way they could use them and not let anyone know they were on welfare. So how are these cards being used?

Reporting from Sacramento — California welfare recipients are able to use state-issued debit cards to withdraw cash on gaming floors in more than half of the casinos in the state, a Los Angeles Times review of records found.

The cards, provided by the Department of Social Services to help recipients feed and clothe their families, work in automated teller machines at 32 of 58 tribal casinos and 47 of 90 state-licensed poker rooms, the review found.


State officials said Wednesday they were working to determine how much money had been withdrawn from casino ATMs by people using the welfare debit cards.

that's hilarious. This just goes to show how jacked up CA is. Because we don't want to hurt feelings, millions and millions of taxpayer money was wasted away.
