An excellent idea. I have found that the people of the rather poor community I live in, abhor "welfare slackers" or "welfare rats" as they call them. Those who know the welfare recipients best know who does and does not deserve the assistance. I would be in favor of peer review for welfare. I would also be in favor of peer review as one aspect
of worker's comp and disability review in addition to medical review.
Rights come with responsibility. I don't think it is unfair to ask those on welfare not to add to the taxpayer burden by having more children. While I am repulsed by the idea of force, incremental assistance in exchange for having tubes tied should be an option.
There is little follow through on re-establishing need and on seeking a way out of poverty. While many will remain on the rolls due to real indigence and ignorance, many could better themselves and this must be addressed meaningfully. Society has been much too easy on far too many. Pestering them with a community service requirement will quickly establish who truly wants to improve their conditions and who does not.
