Richard you have hit the nail in the head. The complete lack of any accountability in these type of programs are the reason they must be stopped across the board. There was a program not to long ago here in Taxachusetts that gave free cars with insurance and AAA to those "in need". Meanwhile the rest of us are the ones footing the bill.
We have all seen it. Food Stamp users buying lobster, steaks and candy with their food stamp cards. The welfare moms (ie the Gimmie Girls) who pop or squeeze out kid after kid to keep the checks coming in on a regular basis and then making sure each kid gets a diagnosis of ADD so a Disability Check is added to the pile. Yet the fathers (plural) are rarely called to task by the government. Some of these women have 7 or more kids. Good lord it is a vagina not a clown car!
It simply doesn't make sense for these on the system/dole to work. There is no point when the freebies and benefits are there for every aspect of your life. Cheap housing, Cheap or FREE cable TV and Internet, FREE food and transportation, free phones and the list goes on and on. Doesn't matter if you are a legal resident or citizen. Just ask Obama's Aunt who is living in her free apartment in South Boston while a homeless US Veteran can't get any help. Ok I feel better now after the rant... THANKS!
