Over 40 million Americans are now depending on food stamps (EBT cards) to put groceries on their tables, and right now they are getting frantic over a glitch in the program. Reports are pouring in from across the nation that people have not received their benefits, or their cards are not working.
Here are some of the reports that showed up on DownDetector.com, according to Michael Snyder, of The Economic Collapse.
Heidi Lynn: I was supposed to get mine on the 5th and still nothing. Even ebt NJ site says $0 as well as my EBT card says $0. I’m on disability. I forgot to add I tried calling NJ Board of Services and was on hold for over an hour. I had to hang up to take dog out, etc. Does anyone know what’s going on yet?
Ann Wilson: Now that it’s been a whole week since I was supposed to get my June benefits, and haven’t, I’m planning on going to my Illinois FCRC office. I hope they will be able to fix this difficulty.
Jenn Johnson: I always get mine on time. I was due to get mine today June 7th and nothing. I am from kentucky. Why is there nothing on the news about this?
Jarrett Manhart: Havnt received mine either. They are never late. And my fone is off so i cant call em. Im on Wi-Fi down the street from me.
Sunny Nicole Jones: I haven’t gotten mine either! I’m glad it’s not just me though because then I would really be worried!
Snyder observed that mainstream media has reported nothing about an issue with the EBT cards this month, but many people are obviously having issues and are upset about it. He notes that with 40 million people in America now dependent on the program, how would they all react if the program were suddenly cut off completely?
When all people who get some form of financial benefits are factored in, the number jumps to over 100 million people, Snyder says.
