Former President Barack Obama may be facing some serious charges after it was recently discovered that $2.6 billion disappeared during his time in office. Maybe this time the bastard will actually be held accountable for the mess he created during the last 8 years. One can only hope, right?
So, it is great to hear that there is finally someone digging into all this fraud and guess where it was found? In the SNAP program or more commonly known as the food stamp program. Is anyone surprised by this turn of events?
The USDA inspector general discovered that close to 2,000 people were using food stamps that were deceased.
According to MRC Blog:
The United Sates Department of Agriculture (USDA) inspector general just caught those responsible for the missing money, and they revealed that Obama enabled them to steal $2.6 billion in goods using the National Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), commonly known as food stamps.
The food stamps were allegedly used by 1,819 people who are known to be deceased, according to the Social Security “Death Master File.”
The inspector general’s office said in a statement:
“We found that 3,394 authorized SNAP retailers (retailers) used Social Security Numbers (SSN) that matched SSNs of deceased people. Additionally, 193 retailers listed owners who were not at least 18 years of age. While FNS did have some controls to edit or verify SNAP retail owner information, these controls were not adequate to ensure owner information accuracy.”
This is absolutely disgusting if you ask me.
But, that is not all folks. Here is what the Free Beacon discovered.
For the audit, the inspector general reviewed roughly 280,000 retailers responsible for 1.56 billion food stamp transactions worth $23 billion.
The department said some of the businesses that reported minors as owners had mistakenly entered the date they applied to redeem food stamps as their date of birth.
The government admitted it “did not have formal procedures for what action, if any, should be taken to secure FNS interests” if a store owner was recorded as being under the age of 18.
The Food and Nutrition Service said it does have an edit check in one of its databases to “ensure owners were at least 5 years old.”
The government said it is reviewing the 1,819 owners using the SSNs of dead people.
So far the department has reviewed 147 owners and removed 122, or 83 percent, from the program.
Under the Obama administration the welfare program exploded and now we can see why.
IHavetheTruth.com estimates that there are close to 46 million people on food stamps.
“There are now 46 million people on food stamps or 15% of the entire country’s population. As you can imagine, this rampant abuse of the system has opened the door for fraud on a massive scale.”
I don’t even need to tell you how that money could have been better spent and Americans should be seething in light of this new information. The problem though is that major media outlets will never report this information and we have to rely on each other to spread the truth.
This is very serious and more people need to be aware so please share this with your friends and let us make this go viral.
