The amount of people in Ilion that rely on the government for food stamps etc. is repulsive. I believe that there should be a welfare registry, like a sex offender registry, online which would show the people receiving these government subsidies and how much they get. If state workers' salaries are public information, shouldn't people on food stamps and all their glory with their classy "benefit" cards be public information as well? It makes complete sense. Why would someone who WORKS have their income as public information before someone who watches Jerry Springer in Colonial Manor all day? There should also be drug testing. If you need to be drug tested to get a job, I think it's safe to say that drug testing will suffice for eating tax payer subsidized moon pies all day. Welfare benefits are intended to get citizens back on their feet, not walk around Ilion all day with BO and fat flailing in all directions. I digress......
This is spot on. I couldn't agree more!

I work 2 jobs and my Husband has his full time job we have 4 kids and get insurance through NY State. We have never applied for any other assistance ever. We do pinch our pennies week to week and may visit the food pantry every few months when needed but with all the fraud thru the county happening we r afraid to even apply for any kind of assistance. Between my 2 jobs they vary in weekly pay and I am afraid one month I will qualify and the next they will say oh no u made to much
