This makes me super happy! Get a f*king job like everyone else to pay your own bills! Quit asking me! Putting a sin up saying you need diapers for a 8 year old and pulling your iphone out doesn't impress me!

Welfare while being around for centuries was pushed thru congress in the social security act of 1935 and amended in 1939 by none other than a Democrat pres... Blame Bush!!!

Hey genius! It's not illegal to be poor in Point Pleasant. It's illegal to stand at an intersection and beg for money. As much as you left wing liberals want to believe, this isn't a political issue. We had a guy standing at the Viand Street/3rd Street corner with a sign about needing food for two young boys while talking on his I-phone. There are places here that can help someone who needs it. This is just to get them off the corners and into places where they can get help.

I know welfare was pushed through by a democrat, like always they're the only ones willing to help the non rich.

Hey genius -- I didn't quote the article word for word, I merely told you what you apparently didn't know. I do know what I am talking about because I can read and comprehend. I assume you meant to say "I already saw it", not "I already seen it". Genius.

Your taxes also go to "bail out" billionaires, lets not forget. Or to finance strong arming small countries whose resources said billionaires have an interest in. I used to tend to favor the Democrats when it came to economic policies, but even they are in the oligarch's (who run this country) pockets so much anymore there is little difference in the two parties. Anyone who doesn't see what an unchecked free market and capitalism leads to isn't paying attention though. Small town republicans make me scratch my head. Welfare and workers comp go to help a lot of people who need it, it's just a shame so many people abuse it. Hard decision need to be made, but the programs should be kept. They are examples of what a government does right, at least in theory. Personally, I think they should mandate sterilization as a prerequisite to receive welfare. No more welfare babies. It's not as unreasonable as it sounds.
