This is a quietly emerging story. No one seems to be sure what’s happening here. It is good to remember that with as many as 1 in 7 Americans on food stamps EBT represents a node of insecurity in more ways than just one.
Widespread reports continue to pour in from all over the nation of “glitches” with the food stamp system. It is eight days into the month and large numbers of people still have not received their benefits, and in other instances it is being reported that EBT cards are simply not working correctly. So what in the world is going on here? On downdetector.com there are scores of reports of problems with the EBT system from people all over the nation. Could this simply be another example of government incompetence, or is something else at work here?
Any information on this situation from our readers is welcome.
