The problem is that it's political suicide to lead reform against welfare, since many abusers of this system are registered voters. The pols choose to ignore the problem and keep their cushy (and highly paid) elected posts rather than do what's in the best interest of the taxpayers.<quoted text>Its never too late. Eliminate it after 6 months. Why pay for recipients to breed with NO incentive to ever work. There are truly destitute who need this program, the elderly, the sick,the mentally challenged, the extremely young. This has become a right of passage for tooooooooooo many people and has to stop. We all know people who are milking the system. Time to end it.
As the year winds down the work doesn't for the Dunkirk Common Council. It will have seven pre-filed resolutions, and likely some walkins, to consider during its regular session Tuesday.

The politician leading the crusade against welfare gets my vote! As I'm sure many other working slobs like myself would vote this way. We're just tired of it running rampant and getting abused.
On a side note-- I've known only a handful of people that actually have fallen on hard times and needed food stamps for a short while, few months maybe to get back on their feet. I'm all for this assistance. But there has to be a damn time limit on it, just can't renew it by having kids every couple years.

If you have ambition in life, you don't have to rely on 4th and Pine St.
