Yup. Thats how most of the system abusers think and they are right! Why should they work when they can have everything handed to them. The system has to change. Us working class can't continue to carry the rest of the country.

No, he didn't, but he can take further steps to help us taxpayers. The drug testing for welfare is absurd. It is a piss test. It is a waste of time and money. A piss test will only show marijuana use. Not crack, coke, heroin, etc. Those are drugs that are out of your system within days. Hair needs to be taken for proper testing of drug use. Yes, it does cost more, but it will benefit the taxpayers more than a piss test will. If a hair test is done on a recipient every 6 months, it's going to detect any drug use within those months.

Clean it up. Cut their checks,cut their food stamps. Make them get a job and support their kids. If all else fails they have the Welcome Hall. I am not suggesting some dont need it,but the freeloaders and selfish ones outnumber the needy.

Welfare should provide two things: Fulfill basic needs AND create a strong desire to get a job to have more. Not provide so much that having a job is actually a step back.

Years ago I found myself in a tough situation. I had a two year old and was laid off. I went down for help. I was SO EMBARRASSED! They gave me so little that there was no way someone could live on it. Then they gave me so much in food stamps that I was in my glory shopping and buying all the best of everything. I can see why people sell their food stamps. I refused to give up. I got a job as fast as I could. Otherwise I would have sat around depressed,eating junk and getting fatter. I did miss the food stamps but I hated being poor. The problem is these single mothers who just keep having kids to get more help. I could have gone that route way back then but I have more smarts then that. How can you properly raise all these kids on your own? One was hard enough. Obama may not have invented welfare but he sure gave these people less reason to go out and get a job. If they really want to work,they CAN find a job. It may not be what they wanted and it may not pay what they want but it is a step toward self sufficiency.
"Gave these people less reason to go out and get a job"...agree 100%. Free cell phones? These phones have not only talk, but text AND internet! I did not know this until I saw the commercial on tv the other night! I thought it was just talk. There should be talk ONLY to make emergency calls! Recipients are having these types of luxuries handed to them and I don't see them looking for work anytime in the near future. All this free shit is defeating the purpose of what welfare is really for and them finding jobs to support themselves and their family. Texting and internet ARE luxuries. Not survival tools. Welfare isn't supposed to be entertaining the lazy!

Here's a thought...why not treat women who will not work to support their children the same way they treat men who do not pay their child support? If a man doesn't work to pay his support he can lose his driver's license, have his tax return taken and even go to jail. Why should women be treated any differently? Get a job or go to jail!! Why should those of us who actually pay taxes be forced to support your children?

These welfare phones DO NOT have internet! They are cheap phones that you can make calls or text. They rarely work too.

From the Safe Link Wireless website you get: "FREE Cell Phone & 1,000 Texts/250 Minutes Every Month! For Income Eligible".

The Terms and Conditions of Service state: "When you purchase Data Services from the Internet at www.tracfone.com , the Content Charge will be shown in both U.S. Dollars and in minutes. You will have the opportunity to select one of two payment options:(1) using a credit card to pay the purchase price shown, or (2) a direct deduction of minutes from your SAFELINK WIRELESS handset"...Some or all (which ever tickles your fancy that month) of the 250 FREE minutes you get on the FREE phone can be deducted for data which makes the welfare phone internet accessible.

Btw, texting is a luxury. I also know of a person who is apparently illiterate and has one of these welfare phones. Yet, he has no problem typing out a text or reading an incoming one. Nor does he have a problem reading the front of the envelope his SSI check came in and signing the back of that check. He also had no problem filling out the application to get 668.00 a month in foodstamps, his rent, heating oil, and electricity paid for. He also gets full medicaid for him and his family. However, this guy is tired a lot from his full time, under the table paying job, so he deserves everything....GRRRR
