The Welfare system needs to go back to the surplus food system. This where you get canned and boxed food from the Dept. of Agriculture. If you don't like that then GET A JOB!!!!
U hit the nail right one that one the only problem is the goverment givs all the surplus to other countrys. Bring back S&H green stamps too.

These city workers are raking in the dough and their fine I know a bunch of them.I wish the lowell sun would post a list of all city employees out of workmans comp or disability then when we see them out doing thier thing we can report them for fraud.There nothing but criminals and should be reported.
