EBT system is down - it could be nationwide

EBT system is down - it could be nationwide

Now this could get serious.

-------------------------------------
CBS reports:

Reports from around the country began pouring in around 9 a.m. on Saturday that customers’ EBT cards were not working in stores. The glitch, however, did not appear to be part of the government shutdown. At 2 p.m., an EBT customer service representative told CBS Boston that the system was currently down for a computer system upgrade.

The representative said the glitch is affecting people nationwide. She could not say when officials expected the system to be restored.

People calling the customer service line were being told to call back later.

State officials said they were preparing a statement to further explain the issue.

The federal EBT website was unavailable due to the government shutdown.

People in 17 states found themselves unable to buy groceries with their food stamp debit-style cards Saturday after a routine check by vendor Xerox Corp. resulted in a system failure.

Xerox spokeswoman Karen Arena tells USA Today that some Electronic Benefits Transfer systems were experiencing connectivity issues after a routine test of a backup system at a location in the Midwest caused an outage at about 10 a.m. ET. The test was part of a regular maintenance schedule, Arena said.

Xerox started receiving calls soon afterward.

"I understand right now that the system is back up and running,'' Arena said early Saturday evening. "But some states may be experiencing connectivity" issues.

U.S. Department of Agriculture spokeswoman Courtney Rowe underscored that the outage is not related to the federal government shutdown. Xerox runs EBT card systems for 17 states. All were affected by the outage.

Get ready for riots in the street if the ststem doesn't go back up!!!

Walmart not able to process EBT cards


Over 50% of Americans depend on the EBT and this is an Obama tactic to get Republicans to pass the bill the Obamacare bill to hell!

The card holders are coming out in droves in the last 10 hours!!!

Do many to post...here is the link of those who are now at the mercy of Obama!

http://www.youtube.com/results?search_qu...12%2C+2013

While Obama continues to spend millions by the minute for war...the people are let behind by a nation that is being run by a non-American and his actions continue to show the people that he is what he is...a African Jew!

His passport says it ALL!!!

Time to demand proof of American citizenship for the man who calls himself Commander and Chief!

As of 10:13 Central time...still no go on the EBT cards. A report I read said they hope to have them working again by Monday. If they don't get them up and rolling Fiat is right, it could get serious. Could it be a test?

No compromise: Obama refuses to raise debt ceiling for 6 weeks

President Obama has rejected raising America's debt ceiling for 6 weeks beyond the October 17 deadline. The compromise was put forward by congressional Republicans, who sought to win time for negotiation and avert an unprecedented US default next week.

The people interviewed, millions like them. Clueless, dependent trained morons with no pride. Wouldn't surprise me if majority of states with no service were Republican, a political warning shot, pure speculation? A glitch it could be.



EBT Card System Restored After Computer Glitch Disables Service

The debit-card system that allows people on public assistance to buy food was temporarily disabled by a computer glitch on Saturday, impacting welfare recipients in Los Angeles and other cities across the country.

“Beneficiary access to programs such as SNAP, TANF, and other programs has been restored to the 17 states where Xerox provides EBT service,” Xerox said in a statement issued Saturday evening. “Re-starting the EBT system required time to ensure service was back at full functionality.”

This concludes our test of the EBT welfare system...

Had this been a real emergency, you would be fully locked down under martial law...

This was only a test.

Yep, that's my thinking. We've seen it before with the banking bailouts. Flick of the switch control to cause chaos used as political leverage to advance "their" agenda. At some point the dependent dupes may be called to serve without ever knowing they were pawns. Suspect they could be marked for "elimination" after their usefulness is spent. Perhaps opening the door for the agenda 21 crowd to scoop up inner city real-estate before anyone knows what really happened? Makes an interesting movie script anyway..... lol

I believe for what it is worth that it was a TRIAL BALLOON to see what the reaction
would be . Perfect timing with the Gov. "shut down" . If those Republicans would only
cooperate things like this would never happen .

Most interesting, a controlled test conducted by Federal Government collect reaction data upon that segment of public dependent upon EBT card for food, I'm sure it provided valuable data for to those insecure half-witted bureaucratic losers. It's still few years off, when things really go bad, note you may not want be in the USA anymore when that happens.

Walmart shelves in Springhill, Mansfield, cleared in EBT glitch

Posted: Oct 13, 2013 1:38 PM EDT
Updated: Oct 14, 2013 7:31 AM EDT


MANSFIELD, LA (KSLA) -

Shelves in Walmart stores in Springhill and Mansfield, LA were reportedly cleared Saturday night, when the stores allowed purchases on EBT cards even though they were not showing limits.

The chaos that followed ultimately required intervention from local police, and left behind numerous carts filled to overflowing, apparently abandoned when the glitch-spurred shopping frenzy ended.

Springhill Police Chief Will Lynd confirms they were called in to help the employees at Walmart because there were so many people clearing off the shelves. He says Walmart was so packed, "It was worse than any black Friday" that he's ever seen.

Lynd explained the cards weren't showing limits and they called corporate Walmart, whose spokesman said to let the people use the cards anyway. From 7 to 9 p.m., people were loading up their carts, but when the cards began showing limits again around 9, one woman was detained because she rang up a bill of $700.00 and only had .49 on her card. She was held by police until corporate Walmart said they wouldn't press charges if she left the food.

Lynd says at 9 p.m., when the cards came back online and it was announced over the loud speaker, people just left their carts full of food in the aisles and left.

"Just about everything is gone, I've never seen it in that condition," said Mansfield Walmart customer Anthony Fuller..............
