    Re: New Mexico to end food stamp supplement

    I see no point in any state giving any assistance if it's meager and non-beneficial.

    How much food can be bought and consumed for $15 , $25? That's what they've been getting. . . surely that's not actually enough to live off of already.

    Where are the people demanding that they pay *more* than that? Why are people offended that such a small amount is being taken away instead?

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    I guess abortions should be paid by the government, right?

    who said anything about abortions? would it hurt poor people to wear a ****ing condom or take the pill? they hand out condoms for free and you can get the pill at the "free clinic". there is no excuse for these people to keep pumping out kids like litters of kittens and then expecting the productive population to support them.

    I don't know, I just presumed that all this talk was about limited the poor from reproducing.

    I have a friend who had polio as a child. He uses a wheelchair. Bright guy and likable. He has had to claw his way to meaningful employment all his life. Disabled people are never likely to get the good jobs, if they get any job. They are usually underemployed. Disabled people are often the first to be let go. Usually it is because they have the crap jobs that are the first jobs to go in a cut back. As they downsized two years ago they cut him to half time. No benefits. They cut his hours again. He doesn't want anyone to know but he is now receiving food stamps. He no longer has health insurance. If they cut his food stamps he'll have to eat fewer meals. The state recently agree to set aside half a billion dollars to attract new business by offering corporate welfare.

    funny, I went to HS with a guy who was blind. he somehow managed to get a college degree and a good job. 1st job out of college, I worked with a guy who was deaf. he had a degree in chemistry and a good job. knew another guy with MS, rented a house from my aunt. he had a degree and a good job

    what did the 3 of them have in common? they refused to play the pity card and sit back and cry about how unfair it was that they were disabled.

    How about personal responsibility? Now there's a novel thought. Why should the government pay for a child's welfare on a routine basis? I thought it was the parent's role.
