    Doesn't anyone police this crap.......??
    California welfare recipients are able to use state-issued debit cards to withdraw cash on gaming floors in more than half of the casinos in the state, a Los Angeles Times review of records found.

    The cards, provided by the Department of Social Services to help recipients feed and clothe their families, work in automated teller machines at 32 of 58 tribal casinos and 47 of 90 state-licensed poker rooms, the review found.
    State officials said Wednesday they were working to determine how much money had been withdrawn from casino ATMs by people using the welfare debit cards.

    You know something moreluck ?
    When I used to play those gambling machines we have in the bars here (Alberta government owned), on welfare day or GST rebate day, you can't get to a machine.
    First, I felt so sorry, for their children... them spending their welfare on gambling, then feeding their kids KD all week, because they have nothing left.

    Then I thought further.... and saying, hey, this aint too bad - they are giving the money back to the government ! :)

    Ofcourse, the casinos here are busier on those days, too.
    Oh yeah, and liquor stores.

    They are already giving the money back in lotto alcohol and cigarettes!
    Thats not the point, if they even know what a casino is, maybe they dont need my money. I barely know what a casino is!

    are we sure that it's not Ca government people using these cards ?
    It could be their way of fixing the state budget.

    It is such a mystery why the US Government, and the states are going broke.
    Now our northern neighbor (klein) shares it occurs there.
    I almost want to leave and move to a stable 3rd world country (if there is such a thing), where the average income is 5,000 to 11,000 a year.

    Politicians of both parties--run for election FULL TIME. Who is doing THEIR jobs ??? The hundreds of Staff people that work for them that we also pay for. The others work three days a week,two for travel and take loads of time "back in the District" try to find or talk to one --you only get the "staff" Is this not fraud along with all the seperate deals incuding retirement , their own healthcare and insider trading.

    Now this is real fraud !!

    Remember the bi-partisan super-committee ? Spent all of their time at various breakfasts , lunches and Dinners with special interests groups that donated to their election campaigns.

    I thought after the last election we were going to see MAJOR changes in Washington----I firmly believe for America there is no HOPE !!!

    Mitch McConnell: Top Priority, Make Obama a One Term President - YouTube

    What choice does the president have but to combat those dipweeds in the GOP ? OBAMA has done a great job of turning the country around, and there are millions of americans who support him.

    Despite all the right wing gloom and doom, even the fox polls on friday show OBAMA beating ALL GOP CANDIDATES!

    Get used to it.

    So how is it that bhos has not yet declared that he is running in 2012, but collects $$ every chance he can, and you are helping him with tax dollars ?

    Sound illegal to me .

    Are you now conceding the fact that he is a US citizen with a valid birth certificate fully qualified to hold and seek re-election to the position?

    What I was referring to is the known fact that he has not yet officially declared himself as such, but uses taxpayer resources to travel all over the country to attend fund raisers. Shouldn't his campaign be paying for all this travel ?
