    Obama warned over ‘welfare spendathon’

    Obama warned over ‘welfare spendathon’ - Times Online

    Even Mickey Kaus, a prominent liberal blogger, has denounced what he describes as the “get more people on welfare” provisions of Obama’s bill.

    In one case, a family of four sisters who had 17 children between them put all of them together, took it in turns to babysit them and over the past three years claimed $540,000 (£374,000) in perfectly legal state childcare subsidies.

    Perhaps more worrying for the president is that some of his natural liberal supporters are not feeling all that confident either.

    Robert Rector, a prominent welfare researcher who was one of the architects of Clinton's 1996 reform bill, warned last week that Obama’s stimulus plan was a “welfare spendathon” that would amount to the largest one-year increase in government handouts in American history.

    Douglas Besharov, author of a big study on welfare reform, said the stimulus bill passed by Congress and the Senate in separate votes on Friday would “unravel” most of the 1996 reforms that led to a 65% reduction in welfare caseloads and prompted the British and several other governments to consider similar measures.
    Porkzilla.
    An all Obama show brought to you via the tax payer. Current and generations into the future.

    Not everyone has "skin in the game".
    Perhaps Obama believes skin-takers, free loaders, and scheizters are a vital part of "the game" to buy votes.

    The corruptive ooze of socialism is poised to get fathoms deeper.

    Rodney... now we know why you get no respect.

    I'm curious, how did they cause this?
    This should prove interesting.

    Hey Rodney - Sure, Republican administrations, especially the Bush administration, doled out welfare money to corporations and the connected, but guess what? They are no longer in power. Obama is, and he is doing the same damn thing they did.

    So let me ask you a question. Were you pretty angry that Bush supporters kept bringing up Clinton when pressed on Bush's failures? Of course you were. So why do the same thing they did? Bush is not at the helm. Obama is, and his failures need to be addressed honestly, or you are no better than those Bush supporters who suffered from Clinton Penis Envy, and who brought up Clinton every time a comment was made about Bush wrongdoing.

    Sorry, but you can't have it both ways. Sitting presidents should be subjected to the same scrutiny when they are in office. Pointing fingers at previous presidents just doesn't cut it. Where does the buck stop? At the Oval Office, of course.

    So are you saying that poor people won't spend this money thus stimulating the economy?
