Not as uncommon as Greg and Libtard1 would have you believe. Since President Obama has been in office, federal welfare spending is up about 41 percent. Food stamps up about percent since ; from 30 billion to 72 billion a year; disability payments up percent from a decade ago.

More than three million American workers have signed up for disability since President Obama took office. Since , means-tested entitlements in America have increased — ready — An unbelievable 5, percent.

Right now an astounding million Americans live in households that receive some kind of government assistance. The conservatives in Florida were so sure that welfare recipients were taking drugs in mass proportions that they also legislated that public workers also take drug tests.

The findings — that only of the 4, people on welfare who took a drug test failed. If one has to take a drug test to earn money to pay for social programs, what is the harm in making those that receive public benefits take a drug test also? Rick Scott co-founded the drug testing company, Solantic.

Geezer Geek , This, from a guy who champions individual liberty, constitutional law, and cutting back on all wasteful spending. I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. In my youth I travelled much, and I observed in different countries, that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer.

And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer. I have an even bigger problem with corporate welfare than I do with welfare for the poor. Liberal1 and Greg think about douchebags. What I wonder is…. I would like to know where in the Constitution it says the government is to provide charity [ergo a living] via the tax payer s to the masses? Nan G — 5 — Sadly, I am beginning to feel like your last sentence….

And sometimes they are mightly elusive. Rick Scott answered critics who accuse him of a conflict of interest, saying that the state will not do business with Solantic, the urgent care clinic he co-founded in She said Monday that those payments were for employment-related physicals and for workers compensation care for state employees of the Department of Transportation, the Department of Environmental Protection, the Department of Education and the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation.

Obama is doing this at an incredible clip. We are now, today, at days without a budget for the United States of America. Obama has put forward budgets that got 0 votes to 97 Senators opposed last year, this year Dem Reid stopped scoring the budget from Obama meaning no Senate vote will happen at all. If a Republican president had presided over so much destruction of BLACKs as Obama has, he would be pilloried in the press as a hate-monger and racist.

Obama gets a pass. But he must go back to Congress for a Debt Ceiling raise before the election. We will be totally broke once more before November. What will the credit rating of the USA be by then? Speaking of our credit rating, you may have noticed that is has once again been down graded. It is now just AA…this has barely been reported on by anyone. The food stamp program can be fixed with a simple executive order. Limit the items on the list to those MichelleObama is pushing for school lunch programs.

Or remove all processed food from the list. Let people eat steak, but not ice cream cake. Or go back to the original list of foods approved when the program started. Could probably be handled with a stroke of a pen by the Big O. Then we can really see the oceans rise with all the tears from the stakeholders, including fast food restaurants, soda and junk food companies and the food stamp receipants. Where I live, volunteers provide food and pack backpacks with food for kids to take home over the weekends because they are not being fed sufficiently.

But the fact remains: All corporate welfare is, is another means by which those in power take from those who have. The difference between corporate welfare and welfare for the poor is who is on the receiving end. What is the rate of Taxation, if any, do a Welfare recipent pays on the welfare payments they recieve? The less people working, the less Corporate entities in existance, and less invoation in the Economy means less real monies to tax for payment to Welfare takers and an even more serious need to borrow from a Foreign Nation to make bills… Now, if the goose is dead then where would that man get the golden eggs from?

The bigger question johngalt is how do we put a stop to this madness….?? The taxpayers are paying for this and we really have no f-ing say in this…. Like that girl in the video…. What is this bitches deal?? What is her excuse? This video is proof positive [both are] to the scammers and the LAZY millions [yes millions] who are scamming the system like video girl …… And her arrogance is appalling….

There are people with Mental Health problems, debilitating health issues and our Aged who need our help Conservatives and Republicans have no problem helping these people…. They are like ants attracted to candy on the sidewalk.. Scammers like video girl and the millions like her STEAL from the Taxpayer and take a large chunk of change from those who really really need our help….

Which is exactly why we should used a targeted approach to solving this problem. Whenever someone gets arrested for drugs or stealing and they are found to be on public assistance of ANY type, they should be immediately removed from the dole. There is little point, and absolutely no justice, in having the government subsidize drug addicts and criminals.

I just left the grocery store where I purchased nothing because I am one of the working poor who have to pay for my food and there was nothing affordable with food inflation caused by EBT activity. Now if I had an EBT card I could have purchased steak, sushi, sub sandwiches, ice cream, candy, red bull and soda.

That is what is wrong with the system!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am in favor of providing food boxes via the public schools to families in need. We cannot afford the luxury items and we work. My child gets nothing free and we work! If Obama wins I plan to divorce my husband of course we will still live together and I will become a welfare receipient because I will quit working.

Then I can receive free medical, free food, free fishing licenses, free cell phones, and free housing. Best of all I have everyday off to enjoy. Call your Congressmen and ask them why people who do not produce, pay taxes their salaries are able to eat better quality foods than those of us who work!!!!!!!!!!! I do not agree with drug testing these losers.

That is just another expense for those of us who pay taxes. Completely disagree with this activity, it should anger all of the real working people of this nation. If you do not lose 12 pounds in 12 weeks on this program you can get your money back…asterisk. Member must follow program guidelines including but not limited to full menu adherence each week, plus 12 consecutive weekly consultations required.

Members following our program, on average, lose lbs per week. Only valid for all access premium or super premium membership. While there is some order to the program with check-ins and consultations, not safe are the preservatives found in every single food item. Other than the frozen food items, the caloric content of Jenny Craig items is rather small, which could lead to some unhealthy choices because of hunger.

Jenny Craig is so popular that finding a clinic pretty much anywhere in the country—there are over locations. This makes the program easily accessible and easy to market to as well. Unfortunately, there are some cons as well. There are also signup fees and regular monthly expenses, which can make this program completely unaffordable for most families.

Sure, the counselor can help you stay accountable each week, but you pay for that, too. Frozen meals do not appeal to everyone. Finally, this program is also very meat- and dairy-heavy, so it will not appeal to a vegetarian or someone who is lactose-intolerant. Jenny Craig is an expensive, monitored program that offers freezer meals. Jenny Craig does not promote how to cook healthy for yourself. Sure, it might be a fit for some people temporarily, but the weight loss averages are less than impressive, and it is grossly overpriced for the quality of food and help you are actually going to get.

But to be fair…in-person support groups can be very helpful; truly feeling a part of a community that is striving to lose weight together.
