I just don't think placing fees on the poor are going to help them financially.

The fees act as an incentive for them to leave the state.

Ah... Now we know why they are implementing shitty policies. They know the policies will not help, that's the entire point. That's pretty malicious.

It's not like they're being fee'd without recourse. If they use the card as intended, there's no penalty. I don't live in Kansas, but I wouldn't be happy to see my tax money being used to buy whatever it is you can't buy in a normal store with a card reader.

i am not on welfare but dont like using plastic because it doesnt feel like using real money just numbers and so its too easy to overspend your budget and also hard to tell how much is left in your card which can be embarrasing or worse if you have overdraft facility and dont realise that youve gone over until yoir next pay comes and bam there is a big irreversible hole in your budget

i always take my money out of my pay account put a little into mu savings then spend the rest in cash

Silly rabbit, helping the poor isn't actually about helping the poor...it's about how much corporate donors can skim off the system.
