Well, I do agree with that, but.......suppose somebody lives way out in the country and needs transportation other than a bike to get to work.
Not everybody who lives in the outlying areas of cities are rich, and have cars, or homes even. Those people do deserve this sort of assistance, if they make an attempt to find a job and keep it. Not everyone who is on welfare lives in an inner city, either.
As for people who live where there is public transportation or whom can peddle to work should use these types of transportation to get around.
If people on public assistance make an attempt to better their lives by finding a job that is a long distance away for them, need some transportation to get themselves off of welfare, I am all for that. Or, would you prefer they sit at home and keep on collecting your tax dollars?

Guaranty Bank of Austin is wrecking the structures to provide a "safe environment" for neighbors of the abandoned housing tract in Victorville, a high-desert city about 85 miles northeast of Los Angeles, a bank spokesman said.
