If we ended all welfare programs in Kentucky, those people who choose to force other people to feed them would move to Ohio, West Virginia, Tennessee, and Indiana...Kentucky would be the state where responsible, working people live...We would have the most prosperous, safest state in the country.

Is there any way to get a proposal like this on a ballot?
I agree

1) Groceries would be cheaper because there wouldn't be any welfare people to buy things that are outrageously priced
2) Home values would go up because people who have no respect for other people's property (because they never had to work for anything themselves) wouldn't be trashing property and neighborhoods
3) Crime rate would drop because people would be WORKING instead of stealing and vandalizing
4) Education would improve because parents who have babies just to get more money would be gone, and the parents who actually care about their kids have taught them that they need an education so they don't end up on welfare, while parents on welfare have shown their kids that you don't need an education if you want to live on welfare
5) Drug dealers would have to move away.
What a great idea! I would definitely vote for it.

Sounds great,but never will happen.You're dreamers. For that matter,stop the ssn disability also. Too many people on it,that don't need it.I have a neighbor on ssn disa, and he plays golf twice a week. But he has back issues??? Please. Loser. I've often thought to take pics of him, and turn him in.

I don't agree with all of it either. But until you walk a mile in thier shoes.. Also if you believe this person is running a scam, do it take the pics, get all the evidence you can. If not shut up and quit crying because your only adding to the problems by not reporting. Also you really know what this persons disability is? There are health benefits to playing golf believe it or not. He may not be in pain at all times either. I don't regard pregnancy as a handicap but some do I don't feel that a pregnant woman should be entitled to front row parking. But they get it to and I don't know but maybe some pregnant woman do need that. I just can't see that they do.

There is a difference between those who actually need help such as your self, and people who make a career out of welfare/ssi and other state funded things.
If only the people who legit needed some help got on state assistance, and all of the career welfare whores got off of welfare, and got jobs, and moved out of state assisted housing, and stopped using so much of the food stamp fund, it would save a hell of a lot of tax dollars.

There is nothing worse than doing my grocery shopping with my hard earned money, having to buy generic, off brand crap (sometimes they're better than name brand food though) to make my dollar stretch to my next paycheck, just to get to the checkout lane and see the lady in front of me spending $500 on all name brand food, tons of candy, and a s**t ton of sodas, and whipping out a food stamp card to pay for it, while paying cash for he $60 worth of alcohol and cigarettes!!!!

Or the mothers that send their kids to the Ameristop to do the "grocery" shopping of candies and sodas.

While I work my ass of for everything I have, conserve energy so my bills are as low as possible, still getting shut-off notices for late bills and breathing a sigh of relief when I pay them before they are shut off, there are THOUSANDS of people who are paying only $12 on what is actually a $300 power bill because they get state assistance that will cover the rest. So while they run their 6 tv's and 4 PS3s, the heat at 90degrees 18 hours a day because SOMEONE ELSE will be footing the bill again this month, I am drinking barely cold milk because I've had to turn my fridge down to save my bills, turn my hotwater heater so low to save my bills it's basically a cold shower.

While most of us work our asses of to barely get by, we are also footing the bills for lazy sacks of crap to live a nicer life style than those who actually work for what they have.

EXACTLY.

You're living MY life. My sister who has made a career out of welfare, with 3 kids with 3 different fathers, actually RIDICULES me and says that I'm stupid for paying my own bills and buying my own food, because she has more than my family does. She can't understand why I get so disgusted when she offers me her foodstamps because she says, "They give us more than we can possibly use". She feeds her kids McDonald's almost every day because she doesn't "like to cook", but she still gets the foodstamps just because she can.

I tell her that I could afford an expensive iPhone (even though, I have no use for one, nor does she), with an expensive data plan (something else I don't need, nor does she. She got a free laptop for applying to the government to go to college for free. Which she did 2 nights a week for about 3 months, then quit because she "didn't like it", "doesn't like being tied down by schedules" and "didn't have time for it") if I didn't have to make a house payment, pay utilities or buy food...She lives in a 3-bedroom house with a full basement and a huge kitchen and bathroom for FREE...She also gets over $10,000 in a tax 'refund' every year, even though she doesn't pay any taxes...Maybe I AM stupid...

Wow - someone who feels same as me!!! I know people who do nothing but party & in winter electric bill goes up to $1000 & all they need is a 2nd notice and its ALL paid for-These people dont even make an effort to get bill down! while I work my ass off 7days a week and shivering under covers in winter to keep bills down. THere needs to be a CAP on. Amount paid for utilities & CaP on #of kids they get money for - more kids = more money is absolutely ridiculous -wrong incentive people

maybe, you weren't woman enough to take care of your man ? guess that never came to you , huh ? your on a 2 way street , sounds like your mad because you both realized that you all weren't going to work together after you both had kids .. just so you know , you can work 30 hrs. a week and earn more money , HONEST MONEY + get a tax return , your awfully angry , that speaks volumes to the average working person ... just saying..
