How To Fix Food Stamp, Medicaid And Gov Housing Problems
Here's a reminder: It would cut food stamps by $127 billion, which would remove millions of people from the rolls during a downturn and cut the benefits of those who remain. Nearly two-thirds of Mr. Ryan's cuts affect low-income programs like Pell grants, housing subsidies and Medicaid. That's never mentioned by Mr. Romney, who instead talks about big cuts to tiny programs that are wildly unpopular with the party base, like the national endowments, family planning …

*I’d be happy to give a link to the article but only subscribers to the newspaper can view it.
It appeared under letters to the editor, and was written by a twenty one year old female.
It’s her future shes worried about and this is how she feels about the social welfare big government state that shes being forced to live in!
Fixing Social Security; Put me in charge of welfare, Medicare and housing grants!
The problems we face today are there because the people who work for a living are outnumbered by those Who vote for a living!
Put me in charge of food stamps. I’d get rid of Lone Star cards; no cash for Ding Dongs or Ho Ho’s, just money for 50-pound bags of rice and beans, blocks of cheese and all the powdered milk you can haul away. If you want steak and frozen pizza, then get a job.
Put me in charge of Medicaid. The first thing I’d do is to get women Norplant birth control implants or tubal ligations. Then, we’ll test recipients for drugs, alcohol, and nicotine and document all tattoos and piercings. If you want to reproduce or use drugs, alcohol, smoke or get tats and piercings, then get a job.
Put me in charge of government housing. Ever live in a military barracks? You will maintain our property in a clean and good state of repair. Your "home" will be subject to inspections anytime and possessions will be inventoried. If you want a plasma TV or Xbox 360, then get a job and your own place.
In addition, you will either present a check stub from a job each week or you will report to a "government" job. It may be cleaning the roadways of trash, painting and repairing public housing, whatever we find for you. We will sell your 22 inch rims and low profile tires and your blasting stereo and speakers and put that money toward the common good..
Before you write that I’ve violated someone’s rights, realize that all of the above is voluntary. If you want our money, accept our rules.. Before you say that this would be "demeaning" and ruin their "self esteem," consider that it wasn’t that long ago that taking someone else’s money for doing absolutely nothing was demeaning and lowered self esteem.
If we are expected to pay for other people’s mistakes w e should at least attempt to make them learn from their bad choices. The current system rewards them for continuing to make bad choices.
AND While you are on Govt subsistence, you no longer can VOTE! Yes that is correct. For you to vote would be a conflict of interest. You will voluntarily remove yourself from voting while you are receiving a Govt welfare check. If you want to vote, then get a job.
BTW – I personally think that the author of the book, "How To Get Food Stamps, Welfare And Other Benefits", should be put in stocks and pelted with fruit and vegetables by all those that work for a living!
