Default Nearly 2M to say buh bye to their Bridge Cards.

LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- An undetermined number of Michigan's about 2 million food assistance recipients will lose the help under new eligibility requirements the state will begin using in October.

Michigan has determined food assistance eligibility based only on income for the past decade. A new policy will include a review of certain financial assets starting Oct 1. The requirements will affect new applicants right away and existing recipients when their cases come up for review, which typically happens once every six months.

Those with assets of more than $5,000 in bank accounts or some types of property would no longer be eligible for food assistance.

The Michigan League for Human Services says the policies will make it harder for those who are out of work or underemployed to qualify for the assistance.

Wescos, meijers, and walmarts are going to see a increase in their shoplifting rates.

I actually got in trouble once for refusing a bridge card when I worked the night shift at 7/11. With my boss and the state. The girl got a little over $400 a month and ate better than I did. So when I saw her band new charger, I said no. Yeah.....im glad they are revamping the system.

If they're stealing it, I don't have to wait in line behind them.
