Not at all Bubba. Your points are well taken. I'm a big proponent of "Workfare" vs. Welfare. I believe in giving a hand up
, vice a hand out
. When a family is in need of assistance, we should be benevolent enough to give it. When the person is able, they should work. Allow the income from that work to offset the amount of assistance they receive. When that income equals the assistance, they are done. If they don't get a job, they're done. Oh, those kids? Don't support 'em, not only are you losing them, you're going to jail for lack of support. Stop coddling those who pop out kids and don't support them, be they male or female. I don't understand why anyone would oppose such an idea.
