Photo Identification On EBT Cards In Ohio

We now live in a society where people expect to receive everything they need for free….I find it funny that Muslims are willing to live in some corrugated shack in trashcan but when they come to a western nation, they want only the best and all for free and they are never happy.

Finally our government is doing the right thing!

According to Breitbart:

The Columbus Dispatch reports that the Ohio House Committee on Community and Family Advancement approved the bill Wednesday.

The bill, which would require food stamp recipients to obtain color ID photos for their benefit cards advanced on mostly partisan lines.

Ohio’s state auditor introduced the legislation with two Republican lawmakers in the Ohio House and Senate in February.

Supporters say the new measure will weed out fraudsters who exchange food stamp benefits for cash.

“This bill’s going to go forward, and we are going to get more food on families’ tables as a result of this,” said Rep. Tim Schaffer (R-Lancaster) the primary sponsor. “And the taxpayers will be made whole much, much more by this photo ID requirement helping to eliminate fraud.”

Opponents of the bill say photos will not deter fraudsters if grocery stores do not check the cards and will cause trouble for the needy who have caretakers or family shopping with the cards on their behalf.

I understand the goal, of course, is to decrease the prevalence of fraud statewide,” said Rep. Janine Boyd (D-Cleveland Heights), ranking minority member of the House panel. “But there’s so many reasons this bill won’t do that the way it stands. A photo is not going to do any more than a name on a card, especially if (retailers) don’t have to check the cards.

What angers people the most is that there are American citizens struggling with homelessness. We have our own military veterans living on the streets struggling with alcoholism, poor healthy and homelessness too, and yet we import these people and give them housing. We are barely able to properly take care of our own people yet those who are not even from here are demanding more.
