That's an excellent idea! Why should people be allowed to sit on their butts watching TV all day while collecting public aid checks, free food and health care? Making them work for those freebees would greatly reduce those on the dole. AND they'd have to pay into SS, and other taxes which would be a win/win for the states and the feds.
IF they had to earn those benefits, there would be little resentment among those of us who work and pay taxes.
I only wonder why our "great government" leaders haven't thought of this? Oh, yes, it's because they are Democrats!
both parties benefit from welfare, and both have blocks of people supporting it. Big business and the catholic like like the illegals-cheap labor and religion. Democrat like them because (if) they vote, they vote demo.
