Need some confirmation on this news, it's also being reported on RT New (which, is why I'm requesting confirmation); I knew about 3 months ago this was coming and about 2 months ago, I thought it was already in place since I had to renew my app for EBT, which is odd, since I remember doing it just 3 months before. If this is true and the states/Gov are implementing the rule, then...you can do your own 'math'.
I'm really hoping that this isn't so but......

I know that many here will think that a majority of people in assistance programs could be working but are milking the system instead. Somehow or another they got on the dole and then just became too lazy to go earn some money.
With all the government backroom deals and bailouts for big businesses, plus the tax burden and cost of living on the common citizen, then I say take whatever crumbs the government is tossing your way. These people aren't dumb and lazy, they're smart, hard working and resourceful. Consider all the red tape, paper work and networking skills needed to live well on government and non-profit handouts. Not to mention the creative ways these program abusing deadbeats earn some spending money on the side. I remember going through some neighborhoods in Detroit and having folks flag you down in the street to buy BBQ ribs and some home cooking prepared from food purchased on their food cards. If they are living well on the dole, then they sure don't sound fat, dumb and lazy to me, more like industrious and resourceful.

The latter won't get straightened out ever, because they've been domesticated like dogs. They believe that they deserve because they exist. They have no ambition,no direction and therefore believe that the govt is here to take care of them. To feed them warm milk and rub their backs while the other half of the country work 50 hours a week to pay for their cowardess and laziness. These are the demographic that the left targets. They offer a quid-pro-quo/ votes for things to these people every election cycle.the worst part about it is that this behavior is now multigenerational in some cultures.
