Should Benefit Cards Have Limited Uses?

State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver wants to limit the places that benefit cards can be used.  For example, if you have a “food stamps” card for groceries, it can currently be used anywhere food is sold including at places like casino convenience stores.

Is this right? While few people condone using benefit cards for things like gambling, some say that there should not be restrictions because there are those who work at such places, even part time, and have benefit cards.  For them shopping “at work,” or near work, might be the most cost-effective thing to do.

What are your thoughts?  Should we place limits on where benefit cards can be used? Comment on our Facebook page and vote in today’s Question of the Day:
