Democrats said there were not enough jobs, workfare assignments or job-training programs to match the number of people who could lose food stamps after three months.

"We all know there are three people for every available job in this country," Fudge said.

Congress knows that all of our jobs are in China.
There are 22 Million unemployed Americans.
Buy American Made Products.
Stop buying products made in China.
Write your Congressman and tell them to bring jobs back to America.

but the middle class working man pays for those people to eat and be able to relax at home as many I know get HUD, food stamps, help with utilities, baby diapers free and much more. the low income working get it too and the rich don't need it.

But the working middle class "has too many assets since they've worked all their lives SO AS TO NOT get things from the system and DID PAY AND STILL DO for the ones who get the help today. They have less "left over money" after bills than the ones not working folks. Is that fair?

I agree with you but that's how it has always been. I'm not sure it will ever change. The middle class always bears the cost of the poor and the rich.

A recent report stated that an unemployed person in this state receiving welfare benefits receives what equates to $11.62/hr. We have people out here breaking their backs for far less. Drug test and deincentivize the system. I'm well aware that people need to utilize these programs from time to time but making a livin off of them is a slap in the face to all that fund them. I would think a trickle system would be better. I.e. 100% benefits for the first quarter, 75% the next, 50% the next and so on. Work as hard to find a job as you do to collect them benefits. Perhaps placing people on a timeline would prove productive.

You want us to help you abuse the system?$425/wk is plenty for you to live off of. That's why you don't get them.
