Please follow this link, register on the white house petition site and sign the below petition requesting more action on welfare abuse:

https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/ple...

The petition will not be viewable to the public on the site until we reach the minimum number of signatures.

Text of petition:

WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:

Please take some significant action to reduce the enormous amount of fraud in government handout programs.

While people sometimes need help, direct government assistance & govt subsidized assistance is obviously loaded with fraud. Something needs to be done to let working taxpayers know that their dollars are helping those who need help, not enabling the many fraudsters who are gaming the system as they collect from multiple sources... private sector help; govt subsidized help & various government programs. Those of us who work & continue to see our costs go up (often in the form of hidden taxes or fees at various levels of govt) are getting tired of hearing about people with free govt cell phones who also have unlimited smart phones, people relying only on aid living in better housing than working people & owning luxury items. No wonder there are so many secession petitions.

Nothing like stating the obvious. SOME of the people on welfare drive brand new cars, carry iPhones in their Louis Vuitton purses and eat lobster and steak purchased with their food stamp card. All this while those of us that work 40+ hours a week, and don't qualify for any assistance, live pay-check to pay-check just trying to make ends meet. PB&J sandwiches for lunch, and a simple meat and 3 meal at dinner time, while driving a rust bucket that is one winter away from Crash's and a purse from Wal-Mart which carries out Verizon Wireless prepaid. Gotta love the system.

The phones for low income people program was created by the GW Bush administration in 2008! Get your facts straight and stop believing everything you see on Fox News. Geesh! They'll laugh at you on DC!

First of all, there is nothing about this post that says "poor me". I'm simply saying that if I had 5 different baby daddies and lived off the system, my life would be much easier that it is now because I work 40+ hours a week. I would be able to stay home with my kids, sleep until noon after they left for school in the morning and all the help that I got from child support and the county, I would have a pretty sweet life. But I don't mind working my job, it's amazing and I am very thankful for it. I have 2 beautiful children that I would sacrific anything for to me sure they have what they need and want (hence the reason I drive a rust bucket and my purse comes from Walmart). So, don't get it twisted. I just think if people can't work for whatever reason, but can still afford their drugs and smokes, then she should be drug tested in order to receive their benefits. If not, then they should GET A JOB!

Drive a "rust bucket"...you have something to drive!!! Many don't. So go ahead and explain how your life could be easier? You have two beautiful children and a job, vehicle...oh lets not forget the WALMART purse people!!! Sounds pretty good to me. Please don't choke on that "simle meat or Pbj"!!!
