i dont know how they do it in the states but here in canada the welfare junkies do nothing but buy alochol ciggs and drugs with the money they are given i would love to see the day when we can limit the things they buy with my hard earned taxes it makes me sick how many of these leaches are doing nothing with there lives and having fun doing it while i slave everyday to keep a roof over my head i say you make it impossible to buy anything other then what they need with the money they get have the rent portion given directly to the landlord which they do here also the make it so they have to do job re training and testing to get them back and if they cant work make them do a min of 40 hours of volenteer work a week and in canada they for some reason dont kick the natives off welfare while the other hand they make it hard for the white ppl they make it impossible to get on and stay on so i say in canada make it damn near impossible to get on dont give the lazy people more and if they do pump out kids just to have more money have them bring there kids to daycare and then they can do there comunitty service like picking up trash that i know for a fact they are the ones who litter and abuse and this is is only th start what about the fraud in the odsp thats even bigger and i dont have the time to rant on that

Californians are far too stupid and self destructive to control Welfare or EBT. Why wouldn't the unions and the welfare crowd make total chumps of the tax payers?
