Food stamp images

I got a right wing email from a friend today which featured a picture of a food stamp with Obama on it. Is this for real? Seems like food stamps are a state run thing aren't they? Is Obama on them for real or is it another fake image?

I did not even think they used stamps anymore. I thought you got a card in the mail similar to a debt card.

In Nevada it's a debit card. The image I found on google shows it has a picture of a mountain range on it.

All states are SNAP associated these days. However, the Dept of Agriculture still issues a voucher in increments of $5 for produce.

Same here in Ohio its a credit card and at the grocery you just hit EBT (electronic benefits transfer) instead of Credit or Debit. There is also WIC, I am not sure how that works.

Electronic Benefits Transfer[edit]
In the late 1990s, the Food Stamp Program was revamped, with some states phasing out actual stamps in favor of a specialized debit card system known as Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT), provided by private contractors. Many states merged the use of the EBT card for public welfare programs as well, such as cash assistance. The move was designed to save the government money by not printing the coupons, make benefits available immediately instead of requiring the recipient to wait for mailing or picking up the booklets in person, and reduce theft and diversion.[4]

Your friend was just trying to yank your chain Tom, and it appears to have worked

The only trouble is he does not realize it is fake and is posting it on Facebook.

Then I would just allow him to make an ass of himself. Maybe I'm a bad friend though.


Reason 9,853 that I do not have facebook.

All over Facebook and everywhere else on the interwebs, it's pretty amusing to see both conservatives and liberals getting "trolled" by their own folks and they don't realize it or even care when someone points out how false the premise of the post was.

Doesn't matter. Our friends in the world of R will be bringing that one up along with the canard about Gore inventing the internet for the next few decades at least.
