It was a plot by the government to get back at corporations.

Not sure. Social issue? EBT cards are regulated and distributed by the government.

I hope every single one of the ones who went over their normal limit loses their free money for life.

Because "gotta eat" means getting enough nutrition. "Loading up shopping carts with way more stuff than you can pay for with the money other people give you" means stealing.

They'll probably be over their allowed limit and have to accept smaller amounts until they've made up whatever they spent or they'll have to pay it back outright.

Do you really think the government will say "Oh, sorry. We accidentally gave you too much free money. Keep it."

If the IRS was tracking expenditures, no way.
