    It's ok to get a government check I will take mine when the say comes

    It's welfare
    That is not true. In order to receive disability benefits through SS you must have earned enough credits. By working you also pay into the program to begin with. "To earn the credits, you must earn wages in a job covered by Social Security or have net income from self-employment."

    You feel that the disabled aren't doing enough to help pay for the additional tax cuts for the rich and additional military spending that Romney has proposed?

    Also another reason I don't think we should be wasting billions on punitively drug testing people receiving assistance is because many military families receive assistance. In fact military families receive food stamps at twice the civilian rate.

    Military members and their families are using more food stamps than in previous years – redeeming them last year at nearly twice the civilian rate, according to Defense Commissary Agency figures.

    More Troops Relying on Food Stamps

    I fail to see the connection. So if people of the military need assistance it changes things?

    Not for me, but the appeal to emotion by the let's test those lazy welfare queens will see their view if who is getting this assistance is wrong.

    So you don't think people receiving welfare should take tests because the military families would be subject to it? Whats wrong with people in the military being tested to receive those benefits?

    Really so disabled children can't get social security? Are you really sure?

    Well if you want a mother raising chilren while her husband is over seas to be forced to pee for food that's up to you. I think its petty and stupid. We just disagree.

    No parent would have a problem choosing between pissing in a cup and letting their children go hunger
