Yet another example of spending taxpayer money like it's water - rather like it is someone else's money. Can't these losers wait a bit longer to take the money out of our pockets and spend it on getting fat?

Yeah, really. What's an extra month or two in a shelter or in a house without heat or enough food? These people without enough money to even scrape by should just learn to suck it up, right?

I bet you call yourself a Christian too.

Hey, while we are at it, lets make the oil companies stop taking all the taxpayer bucks. Lets include corporate farms, banks, airlines, trucking companies that don't pay enough for the damage to roads, etc.

Seriously? Not everyone who uses public assistance is a lazy slob. Some are just hard working people who need a little help to get by. There is a difference between white trash who just abuse the system, and hard working Vermont families. If they are really worried, how about they change the way the benefit cards work - I am SO sick of seeing people take cash off the cards and use the money to buy cartons of cigarettes while their poor kids stand there in worn out clothes and holey sneakers!
