Good God how much more vote buying will the dems do to stay in office? Ms.Gillibrand there has been many programs at the cost of many billions that have been in place for over 40+ years.It not the fact that low income families have been overlooked,it is a fact that the goverment has made these people depended on the system for their every needs for life. 90% of the families on the system have been generation after generation. They can get FREE housing,food,healthcare,cell phones,gas&electric,school /college,ect. so why would they work? Just how much do you think the working people that pay taxes can afford? Goverment regulations/taxes has driven business out of the country,but your party wants to give out even more handouts to drive out more? I'm all for helping people get a hand up,but not a life long hand out.Your party and it's out of control spending is way this country is turning into a third world cesspool,wake up. Just saying.

What people need to understand is that government assistance does not alleviate poverty it perpetuates and locks people into poverty. That is the whole idea behind it. To get people to depend on government and keep them easily controlled.
