Many on welfare are single mothers. Single mothers are often barred by the courts from moving so many miles from the non-custodial parent, whether he actually participates in the kid(s)'s lives or not or whether he pays child support or not. The government is forcing many of these mothers to live in an area where they cannot find jobs to support themselves, imprisoning them within their environments.
I know because I lived like that for three years. It's one of the ultimate oppressions you can do to a family.
I've never ever heard of this at all. My hubby pays for two other kids by a welfare leech of a woman. She moved away to Florida, thankfully she moved back before we moved here,,,ugh and had everything transferred down here. And HE Was involved with their lives. I don't know what state you live in, but that was NJ. And now that his children are adults, she had another baby to keep leaching off of NJ. Even though she is able bodied if not a little slow, but she can do minial jobs.

I think this will just set presidense,till we become a socialist country,the government will own everything,so if you work you'll be taxed to the hilt,and welfare recipiants will end up with same amount,this will be the new norm,like in communist country,as far as Arnold goes,he is doing the job he was hired to do,hard to run a buisness in the red,Obama should take some lessons from him,Calif is no different then any other states just it had more going for it,so get ready where ever you live,this is the feces hitting the recirculating blade

All I have to say is good for California!!!! I'm applauding their decision and hope all US states and the Federal Govt do the same thing. Its a drain on our tax dollars and keeps taxes higher then they should be. I don't think any riots will come of this. However when people start to leave California and come to states that still give out checks for doing nothing all day please don't come to the DC Metro area. There are way too many people in this area already and really most won't say it, but we really don't want/need you here. May I suggest the Midwest where they need population. I might also suggest if they are not from the USA and from south of the border (not the one in South Carolina) but Mexico and farther South to head back to where you came from. We have enough to do all the needed work here already and don't want any more gang members to come out East.
In reality, the authorities hoard and establish monopoly on all things that are realistically needed for people to live decently, and there is a big surplus of those things. Just think of how big modern times' productivity is, and how much food is being destroyed every year just to maintain prices (in order to maintain the illusion that one must work 40 + hours a week). Yes, that's the game, the "idea" I'm talking about. This is the same idea now as it was 100 years ago, like nothing changed in the ways of productivity. No way! this idea has been made a constant while it really is a variable.
