    Yeah for about a month. And then who solves the problem of mom not having money next month because she cant get to work?

    You guys act like the answer is so simple. "Oh well...derrrrrr...just stop being poor."

    It's asinine fantasy approach to a real problem.

Differentiating the two and helping those who work to make things better, and cutting off the parasites is the issue.

    Perhaps you should stop attempting to be snarky and address the problems with potential solutions.

    You haven't offered a solution. Just generalizations. "We need to help those who really need it and get rid of the abusers!"

    Ok. How?

    One thing I think should happen is mandatory drug screening for anyone on public assistance.

    Well, I think there are people who are poor, because of the choices they made. Not all of them, but some.

    So, yeah, in alot of cases the answer is, "just stop being poor".

    You don't seem to get much from what I observe.

    How the hell does that help children who are not getting "nutritious" (whatever that definition means) meals?

    That's not even close to an accurate assessment of the issue. "In a lot of cases" does not give any quantifying data to work with. It's too general. Also, what constitutes a "bad decision"? Got anything more than subjectivity?
