I looked at the pie chart of where the budget for the county is at. Almost 90% was welfare and medicaid. The rest was almost insignificant 1% for Sheriff, 2% for DPW.... Which, services the supervisors were planning on cutting from so they could continue dropping money into the bottomless pit of DSS (welfare).
I was told the only reason they pay DSS, and fund medicaid is because it's state mandated, and they lose state and federal funds if they don't comply.
Hence many registered voters (democrats and liberals) are on welfare.

Can anyone answer how much money this state and federal aid money is? What does the county get from the state and federal for paying for welfare? Honestly it cant be worth it. I'm tired of paying taxes that fund welfare and medicaid. I pay my share of taxes and don't want to do without snow plows or police patrols. Screw welfare and DSS and medicaid.

If they stop funding it, and then start putting stipulations on welfare.(ie) Drug test; limit amount of time to be on it; limit the amount of money allocated per household so it doesn't breed itself generation over generation; require education and active employment whether part time or full time; require English language proficiency skills...

Screw state and federal money. Lets clean this county up from the welfare, and then get rid of the the Robin Hood town supervisors that wanna keep funding state mandates to give away welfare. Then vote these Turkeys out of office. Can anyone tell me why this isn't possible? What is the hold the state and feds have on us?
