    Simple Solution, stop the EFTs to that card. If the food stamp recipients can't keep accountability for those taxpayer funds, then those funds for them should be forfeit.

    Formal explanation? So, what now they lie to you in writing and that helps how? Here's the problem who's going to check out all the unverifiable stories. Look assign pin numbers and then let the recipient explain how they wrote down the pin and lost it with the card. still the same problem. We need entitlement reform and penalties for losing your hand out, like say the first time results in a 25 % cut in your benefits for 3 months. The second time you go without for 3 months. There won't be a third strike. We go back to food stamps in very limited dollar amounts so you have to be inconvenienced by getting another short term amount every few days. OR you could always get a job and work for a living? Nah,.....

    They should only allow a person "one" replacement, then after that they're screwed. I mean, come on, how irresponsible can a person be to "supposedly" lose their card more than once. IF it's legit, you'd think they would be more careful with their second card.

    I understand that some people can't find jobs, but instead of welfare we should have public works programs. Have them build houses, clean up highways, etc. instead of paying people for doing nothing.

    All stores accepting EBT cards should be required to have cameras throughout the store - track the stolen or lost card to the store, check the tapes, and you have your crook.

    Get caught and loose all those free ride benifits plus jail time. That way the mulitgenerational welfare cycle can be broken. As for those who brought them. Have them pay for the rest who are on food stamps.

    The idea is to make the punishment and I mean punishment so bad that it is not worth doing the crime.

    If you lose your food stamp card, it sounds like a personal problem. After 6 months, you should be allowed to sign up again, but if you continuously keep "losing" your card. You should not be allowed to obtain another one. Some people seriously do need this, and if it was extremely important to you and your family, you wouldn't lose it.
