What the moron fails to understand...

Post by T on Wed Jan 08, 2014 6:27 am

Even though the data that LePage is using is old, it shows that Maine's EBT system is not being widely abused as the gov'na is trying to spin it.

The transactions he claims that show abuse are 0.3% of all EBT transactions.

WOW...the abuse is "rampant!" to use the gov'na's words.

What a ma-rooooon....

Here's a more reasonable approach.

House Speaker Mark Eves, D-North Berwick, said that if the data released by the governor is verified, it should be addressed immediately — even if the figures are small.

“No one wants to see funds meant for struggling families abused,” he said Tuesday. “State law already forbids EBT cards from being used at liquor stores. If this list is verified, it’s time to take action. The question for the governor is, will he prosecute or politicize it? Democrats will continue to support good faith efforts at cracking down on fraud and abuse.”
