    See here's an example of abuse, just like the recipients using their benefits to purchase illegal drugs. This is bull**** that shouldn't be happening. The detractors always have excuses (more the exception than the rule) to justify not correcting things like this.

    Oh no another fake problem. lol. There are atms in strip clubs, I bet they have them in some planned parenthoods too.

    So the "Gents" will go across the street to withdraw cash at a nearby atm.

    My husband administers military tests often - he knows the tricks and is present in the restroom for those in

    He should consider working for the t s a.

    Exactly.
    The problem is cash. Welfare recipients should not be paid in cash. Give them food, clothing, a place to live, and a chance to earn a better life. Once they're earning their own cash, then they can spend it in a strip club if they want.

    So how many welfare recipients withdrew cash at strip clubs that makes this a real problem?

    We could copy Brazil:

    The program attempts to both reduce short-term poverty by direct cash transfers and fight long-term poverty by increasing human capital among the poor through conditional cash transfers. It also works to give free education to children who cannot afford to go to school to show the importance of education. [1]

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Since when does spending money on a legal activity qualify as "abuse"?

    Though I will say that the rhetoric about stigmatizing and humiliating people is unnecessary hyperbole.

    Better yet, why not just pay people a living wage for working full time and reduce the need for welfare altogether?

    Even the very poor deserve to rub their face in some titties from time to time. I mean come on people, how inhumane can you be?
