My wife draws a check because she has cancer and I work everyday surely they wouldn't cut her off her with would they.I also agree with some of you the ones that draw a check to buy drugs should be cut off and put in prison for fraud.My son has ADHD but we never once tried to draw anything on him.I just hope this is not true because she worked all her life and couldn't get social security, well thats another story.

I think your missing the point as Harry pointed out the checks will stop next year. Drug test or not they are being forced to stop makeing SSI payments. I happen to agree with old Harry on this one it's the end of walfare as we know it.

sorry, i justcan't believe they will ever cut anyone off. the government know they cannot because these people wont work. they will not starve or do without their drugs. and guess what///if they cut these checks out..they will get it someplace,,from you and me is where its coming from. they will rob, cheat, steal, and kill to get what they want and need.and guess what, it will cost us more in the long run!!!! this has become a way of life for so many people, and they are not gonna give it up so easy. and i do agree that there are people who isn't able to work that has to have the extra help, and thats ok by me..we are suppose to help those who cannot help themselves. but these lazy a$$$$ needs to get a life. i have been in the stores around the first part of the month here in johnson county, and hell these people will knock you down, with their big buggy loads of pepsi and junk food. when i get in line to pay for my stuff, and can look at the ones in line that is paying with food stamps! i can always tell by what they have bought if they are paying with money or food stamps..you can tell the difference. because us working people can't afford to fill our cart up with junk food, pepsi and t-bone. we are limited on how much we can spend for our family.because we have to pay our bills and rent.unlike most of these people who waits for hud to pay their rent.

i think if you are on the draw (welfare) they should be tested for drugs every time they recert and ssi they should look into spading. im not being funny or mean think about it all these people who get ssi on bogus calls would drop it if they thought they could never have kids and 99% of the time mom or dad draws a check there kid or kids will draw a check. some need and will do this cause they need, but some are usin the system id say a little more thought to it but it is a thought

my family is on foodstamps and my husband draws a check each month. I agree with the random drug testing, when you go in to get assistance, they should take you right then to get a drug test and if you fail then they should take everything away from you, including your kids if you have any. I know that not many people would pass the test. everyone looks down on the people who are on foodstamps or draws a check, but you have to remember that some people can't work, and whether you work or not you can still get assistance. The government does need to drug test for checks and assistance, hopefully they will pass a law for it soon. Try not to judge everyone the same way because they need a little extra help. God Bless!
So rather than give a duggie mom Food Stamps to feed her kids, you want her innocent children to starve to death. Gee's I'm glad your not running for office...that is Hilter sh*t!

Evidently you are single, have no extra deductions, and not enough income tax was withheld from your pay.

Drug testing is just crazy, it would cost even more to run a program like that. Have you ever had any Lab Work done for a drug test? It's like $200.00 or more. But not only that the Drug Stick Test's are not 100%, you can eat curtain foods and end up with a false possitive.
And I don't know about you people but I want less Goverment in my life ( and I work )if we had less Goverment taking care of the poor would not be a problem. And we could even afford Free Clinics to help get the druggies under control.

And sorry..but I'm not for letting any child go hungry here or anywhere for any reason.

All these events shows us that the ones that makes these motions to take away what has fed the familys of the ones who build this country have no souls sold to the highest bider. what do they think will come out of this.. 1) the raise of crimes in the rich and poor areas of this country shit the whole country will be an open candy store.but these are means to build more jails where does that money come from 2)death on all levels, why to sale more pine boxes and roses some sad shit..but as history shows us all great empires has to fall ..to birth a new.. what do they think that someone who has never worked a day in there lives after 30-55 years will start to work now.. not going to happen.. they say the best way to kill someone is to do it while they are still breathing.. .. good job guys for electing retards that follow snakes into the pits then lay down to be bit not just once but over and over again

I totally agree about the drug testing, because it's awful that in this country, a drug addict or alcoholic that hasn't worked a day can go straight in and get an SSI check. And when a hard working person, that actully can't work, has to fight to recieve any type of assistance. It awful. I see people, that don't even have custody of their children, that's hooked on drugs, in and out of jail, drawing an SSI check. And then I see a man, that can barely walk, injured on the job, with kids, fighting to work. I hate it. I see nothing wrong with getting government help, IF you need it

Regular Social Security will continue as long as funds are available. China is also demanding the US government look into reducing or eliminating food stamps. They have suggested instead a government work program that would require anyone recieving any kind of government assistance to report to government work centers every day to work on highways, bridges, or what ever type of work may need to be done, like the WPA back in the 1930's. Word is that welfare and medicare are also being looked at. Looks like this may be the end of the free ride for a lot of people. This is not just president Obama's fault the last six presidents we have had have contributed to the debt and putting us in the position where China can demand how we conduct business in this country.

they cant tell the US GOVERNMENT how to
pay back their debt.

there are some people who are on ssi who need it. what need to happen is the people who fake like something is wrong with them need to get off. the real problem with society is there aren't any real men out here. maybe if these men would be a backbone in society like it was in the 50's instead of getting women pregnant and leaving them to take care of a baby by thereselves maybe it would be less people who would need assistance. one thing i hate it when everytime when someone sees a single mother they look down on her like she did something wrong. but everytime a woman gets pregnant it's the man fault because she can't get herself pregnant. i know what your going to say well she should of keep her legs closed. no he should play with her emotions and if he knew he didn't want her he shouldn't be playing these childish games and he should keep his personal items in his pants.

China can do whatever they like my young friend. I truly wish that you were right and I was wrong. China has an army that is so large and well trained they could over run ours any day. China also has just as many nukes as we do. But the point is we owe our soul to China. The only reason the Unites States has been able to continue to operate is by borrowing money mainly from China, Japan, and others. China is already controlling much of our foreign policy.
The reason for the agreement to stop the SSI checks was part of an agreement to allow the US to continue to have China purchase our bonds. There has been a lot of speculation on here since my original post and let me make this clear. It's SSI and Welfare that is going to stop. The regular Social Security will be continued for the time being. Food Stamps will also continue for now but as for the other checks their as good as gone.

Some people draw checks because they are to lazy to work. I have some family members that have finished school thats to lazy to get a job so they draw checks. But some people do deserve it. I do think that its dumb for parents to get SSI for a kid with ADD or ADHD. But I have a niece that has autism and her father gives no support and her mother is a full time college student and works full time as a CNA, so she had no choice but to get SSI, she doesnt get full amount but if the child does not draw the check she cant get medical coverage and thats the most important thing. It really helps most kids that have life long problems such as autism and downs syndrome. But most parents do it so they can have drug money!

You're correct Misty it is a shame that the people that truly deserve state aid will lose their checks as well as the dead beats.
If it were not for check factories like the Eric Conn place in Floyd county things may have worked out better. The point is everyone who currently draws these checks whether they deserve it or not needs to prepare for the fact that the checks are going to stop. I wish the government would go ahead and level with the citizens of this country so they could prepare, but there's no way they will announce this before the elections this fall.

RELAX FOLKS, I leaked this last evening while sitting in my office on Capital Hill with a pretty brunette sitting on my knee, and smoking a cigar. Funny, the cigar tasted funny. Anyway, I was only kidding. I was merely trying to see if I could stir the state of Kentucky up. I bet Mitch McDonnell peed his pants when he read what I had done. Relax folks, your SSI and food stamps are in good shape. Gotta go, Monica is waiting.

The mentally and developmently impared have nothing else and they should not be put off the very little bit of money they get from SSI! My son is 19 and is in the Title XIX Waiver Program for MRDD. I do believe there are those who should not be on the program but do not take it from those who truly have no other way. I hate it when someone says he is in an entitlement program like he does nothing and receives alot. See if you can live on $674.00 a month. I worry every day what will happen to him when I'm gone and now the little bit that I thought would be there for him may be gone. What kind of people do not want to help those that truly cannot help themselves.

The new way for the low income trash to get money from the government is to take college classes and live off of financial aid with NO plans on actually using the degree.

I hear that the college student quality is going down the tubes. They know they can take classes and receive a refund check for the money left over from their grants.

The government has limited powers when it comes to this sort of thing. They actually have no constitutional right to collect any money to do anything other than enforcing the law and protecting the country. It seems these days, the federal government want to do everything they are forbidden to do and nothing they were hired to do according to the constitution.

Social Security was put in place in the 1930s for an emergency situation and by law should have ended in the 1960s as we were all supposed to begin to take responsibility for our own retirement funds.

You people think that the government is doing you some kind of favor but if we managed the money ourselves, I doubt we'd accept a 70% waste factor.

The truth is, there are many with pretty pitiful excuses for why they aren't taking care of themselves. There will always be a small percentage of the population who need assistance all their lives but substance abuse and addiction is not a reason and neither is a backache. Being born blind and deaf, without arms or legs or a horrible accident which leaves one requiring someone to feed them is not able to work.

Also, a trip to the ER should involve a fever above 102 degrees, the words chainsaw accident, gunshot, car wreck, or "hey doc, can you sew this back on?"

No need to worry about it. I hear the world is going to end on 12-12-2012. But I don't believe that either.
