Unfortunately, we have become a welfare society, and there are those who do take advantage of the system. It is a sad state of affairs.
This picture shows exactly what America has come to understand Obama’s reign. He has encouraged these illegals to cripple America and that has happened. While many Americans slave away putting in 40 or more hours a week just to make ends meet, there are other members of our society enjoying collecting welfare checks on American taxpayer’s dime.
Recently in Baltimore, 14 people were arrested in raids that amounted to $16 MILLION in food stamp fraud. They have now been indicted for the crime.
According to Freedom Daily:
Food Stamp benefits cost $74.1 billion in 2014 and supplied roughly 46.5 million Americans with benefits, which comes out to an average of $125.35 for each person per month in food assistance. Even a fraud rate of under 5% amounts to billions in wasted funds. The most popular method of food stamp fraud isn’t fraudulently claiming benefits, it’s recipients trading in their cards for a fraction of their face value for cash.
Watch the video below:
[Retail operators,] around Baltimore have been charged in connection with a huge food stamp and wire fraud scheme.
The indictments allege the retailers received more than $16 million in federal payments for transactions in which they did not provide any food, a fraud scheme commonly known as “food stamp trafficking.”
As a result these transactions, they allegedly obtained more than $16,482,270 in EBT deposits for transactions in which food sales never occurred or were substantially inflated and split the proceeds with food stamp recipients.
Here are some of the names of the defendants:
Walayat Khan, 36, of Reisterstown
Shaheen Tasewar Hussain, 60, of Ellicott City
Mulazam Hussain, 54, of Windsor Mill
Mahmood Hussain Shah, 57, of Catonsville
Muhammad Rafiq, 58, of Reisterstown
Mohammad Shafiq, 50, of Gwynn Oak, Maryland; and his daughter,
Alia Shaheen, 24, of Baltimore
Mohammad Irfan, 59, of Nottingham
Muhammad Sarmad, 40, of Nottingham
Kassem Mohammad Hafeed, a/k/a Kassam Mohammad Hafeed, 51, of Baltimore
See the trend? Ten of the 14 are Muslim. I’m curious to know where those millions of dollars went – did they go to terrorist groups? Just another crime allowed by the Obama a dim. Probably known by the authorities in Baltimore, you scratch my back, etc… The criminals are quite able to work but it’s easier to steal!
Do away with Food Stamps Program, Mr. President. Food Stamps is money too. Just give them money. Why use real money to print Food Stamps or to make those Food Stamps cards like a debit card? This program has been abused for ages. Continue to fill the food pantries at neighborhood churches, food banks… With the USDA foods for people with real needs. Do away with Food Stamps would help the taxpayer’s burden big time. Drain the swamp, clean the house, get rid of those “abusive” hands-out programs please, Mr. President. We, the Patriots, are with you all the way. You’re doing great so far. Don’t break that momentum. President Trump, the world of Law and Order wants you! God bless you!
