MIAMI (AP)— Millions of food stamp recipients in 10 states were unable to use their debit cards for about six hours Friday after an outage at JPMorgan Chase.
Bank spokesman Mike Fusco apologized for the inconvenience and said the technical glitch was resolved around 1 p.m. Friday, but he declined to discuss details of what exactly went wrong.

So the reality of their situation was revealed to them for 6 hours?
If their was a Jerry Springer marathon on that day I doubt any of the would have noticed.
Oh, and what the hell is this?
“Angry users took to social media to express their frustration in the busy grocery shopping days before Thanksgiving.
One woman tweeted, They have about 50 signs on Publix door saying the (hash)EBT machine is down for Ga!!!”
Social media? Tweeted? THANKSGIVING????
I thought you people were supposedly too broke to buy a meal? How on earth are you tweeting jack? Why are you using this stuff to buy some sort of Thanksgiving feast????
Now that is funny.
They have free Obamaphones and a lot of minutes of service.
Also $10/mo high speed internet.
That’s how Axlegrease’s legions worked the 2012 elections.
Doubt too many of them noticed if they were just getting up!
"Check the cable news channels on the big screen and see what's up!"
"Grab the Bamaphone - call 911!"
"There must be something about it on my computers! Log onto the web! Check my chat sites!"
"My chillin' gotta eat! Somebodies gotta be held responsible for my kids!"
You know it’s funny that you too have noticed that. We have a huge Super Walmart not far from our house. IF you get there about 10 or 11am there is absolutely noone there. Noon or later they are mobbed.
I always tell Hubby....gotta get to Walmart before the Free Shit Crowd gets out of bed.
System test, to see if they could be simultaneously shut down?
Millions of EBT Cardholders Starve to Death.
Women and children hurt the most.
“Free Sxxx Crowd”-—Lol
When the teat runs dry the Zombies appear.
nah - EBT could never go down...
I put up a vanity post Friday when my wife’s bank lost its wire service. I’m still suspecting cyber warfare. Possibly tied to Iran.
A week ago here in L.A, I literally witnessed this homeless bum buy an 18 pack beer case from Rite Aid with the EBT.
Can’t believe this sh*t. This is why I never give to these scum.
LOL...I was trying to think of a rejoinder, but can’t top yours! Well done.
I look forward to the day when their EBT cards draw nothing but electronic “insufficient funds” rebukes from all Point-of-Sale terminals. I further look forward to their Obamaphones responding with nothing but dead air when they try to call and complain. A more worthless collection of losers never existed on this earth.
Scary, but that is probably exactly what was said and done.
we’re sorry you can’t spend other people’s money on your lottery tickets, mountain dew and lobster tails.
>A more worthless collection of losers never existed on this earth.
Their enablers are a rung below these shiftless scum.
“The poor” can get cheap internet subsidized by regular people who pay for their inernet. they have a faster connection than i do as well.
Apparently they can tighten the belt for 6 hours without killing anyone. I guess we get some lead time to get out of town when the crap hits the fan?
Just have proper weaponry and plenty of ammo on hand.
and in a system where money’s made out of thin air, you can never run out. you just push the bill forward.
try buying stuff like that yourself. “The guy behind me is going to pay for all my stuff, as well as his.” see how that works for joe citizen. unless you have an ebt card it ain’t gonna work.
How’s I gonna buy my Doritos?
While I agree with your sentiment completely, their enablers are anything but powerless losers even though they are much much worse than their ‘voters’. Contrarily, they have too much power to begin with.
And then, that's when (especially if you look like a "have" vs. "have not" to them) you should head for the hills, because they'll be coming after you NEXT.
LOL, gotta remember that one...
Yep. It's time to cull the herd. The population has reached critical mass - not only fiscally, but the ability to be controlled. People are rising up.
They can't just start shooting the useless eaters this time. Instead, they'll just have people kill each other.
Gee, now why would they be heavily arming government agencies, you know, just in case there's a "unexpected" social uprising? Hmmmmmm.......
That's the scary thought.
I am already “in the hills”.. it would be a big mistake to come knocking on my door during such times, even if they could get here - no rail line, no bus line, no interstate, etc.
IF they think it's coming back.
Speaking of Walmart and EBT cards, we were there yesterday. After noon, come to think of it. A woman is talking to someone on her phone (’BamaPhone, I expect.) She said, “Yeah. I’ll get it with my gubment card. I ain’t a-carin’. It ain’t MY money.” I’m thinking, “Yeah, Bitch. It’s MY money. And I’m ‘a-carin’!” It took everything in me not to speak up.
I dream of standing behind someone in a checkout line using an EBT card. When she puts Pop Tarts on the conveyor, I take them off. When she puts marshmallows on the belt, I take them off. Etc. Then I tell her it’s my money she’s spending and I insist that she put back all the crap. Wouldn’t that just be so great if we all did that?
Everyone missed the most important part of the story. Remember, JPMorgan once wanted their MVP to become their CEO. You get one guess who.
Main reason my wife won’t take me shopping any more.
She is afraid I’ll go off on a welfare mama loading up her cart with top notch foods while we clip coupons, buy the “last chance” meat, sale items and house brands.
I removed my filter to be polite to thieves. I am going to lose a multigenerational family home, savings and perhaps a business. I am sick of this.
I give you permission to do the same. :)
Anonymous has been bragging that they are disrupting things all over the world.
Wow, there must be an enterprising hacker out there that can design a computer virus that spreads to everybodies computer in the world, that does nothing but DOS attack the EBT system. I would gladly turn off my virus checker
Do you know what happenes when EBT cards don’t go through? Shopping carts full of groceries are left at the registers. If the cold/frozen doesn’t get put back quickly, it must be thrown out. The cost is passed on to the consumer.
My thought, too.
If I was a hacker
I’d hack ‘em in the mornin’
I’d hack in the evenin’
All over this land.
I’d hack ‘em for freedom...
