IMO, this plan would not only save US money but would help the recipients as well, as apartments are expensive nowadays, and hard to afford without a Section 8 voucher.
Section 8 is crap. Build a glorified homeless shelter with plenty of cots and a bathroom to share, and ship them there.
You shouldn't even be within earshot of the American dream if you're living on the dole.
It would also help to make SURE that the children's basic needs were being met. The kids are the ones I care about.
I don't see too much of an issue with food stamps. People DO sell them for cash sometimes, for cigarettes or whatever though. So, there would be no guarantees that the children are being fed properly.
I also think recipients should have to either attend school or some job training program while they are collecting. It's the only way to make your life better. Otherwise, they would just be on the system/off the system, like a yo-yo.
I would agree to requiring school or training, for free, with accommodations for the working poor and child care.
I really like the idea and it's nice to agree. I don't know how economically feasible it is though. I think it would help out in the long run to create more productive people and have less people stuck in a cycle of poverty. Granted there will always be poor people though.I would agree to requiring school or training, for free, with accommodations for the working poor and child care.
