New Mexico Welfare recipients partying it up on the appropriately named Fiesta card
Living "la Vida loca!" on the taxpayer's dime From Eric Dondero: Recent report from Albuquerque news on New Mexico's version of the EBT card. Seems government assistance takers are spending much more taxpayer money at strip clubs, bars, and casinos than was originally intended. Towards the end a state bureaucrat acknowledges that even if recommended changes are implemented, banning cashing out from the cards at these establishments, won't stop recipients from cashing out at a nearby location and using the taxpayer funds for a pull-card, 12-ounce bud, or even a lap dance.
