Some grocery and food shoppers who were trying to used government benefit cards to pay got a rude awakening on Saturday morning: their EBT cards were not working.
A check here in Central New York, however, showed that grocery chains were apparently unaffected.
We are being told that a technical services vendor (Xerox) had a power outage which did affect being able to pay with a benefits card in several states. As of early Saturday afternoon, the debit system was back up and the SNAP program was being rebooted, with expectations that all services would be back up shortly.
Things that make you go “hmmm”
There is a God!
Republicans are to blame!
News at 11!
Methinks this was a little hint to congress. I don’t even want to know what 3 weeks without EBT would look like.
The deadbeats won’t like this.
Methinks 0bama might be playing his hand a little too early.
Appears to be quite widespread.
Cue the rioting,looting and burning...
Hilarious. Those poor poor people. What they must be going through... /s
Women and minorities hurt the most.....
Imagine if it was the 1st of the month!
Now the reality and the fun begins. The Republican Party needs to point out that only 17 % of the government is shut down and that Obama has the final say on who stays open and who doesn’t in the shutdown process before he tries to pin the blame on them. They also need to remind people how’s he intentionally tried to make the process increasingly difficult on the public as of late.

Must be another one of those glitches. Maybe they got their wires crossed trying to fix the Obamacare website. Damn, accidents happen. /sarc
Don’t you believe it. This was on purpose!
