  •  In Florida you get a card... (11+ / 0-)

    and it is also used for TANF funds, and you can also have your child support and unemployment loaded onto the same card. This is what causes some of the right wing meme's that people are using food stamps to buy cigarettes, withdrawing as cash and such. They see the same card being used like a regular debit card, you can get cash back if you have cash on the card in addition to food stamps.

    Back when stamps were actually stamps you could get cash back in change, and thus use stamps to buy toilet paper and such. You can't do that any more.
