Yeah, I heard that this morning on the news. For those in MI, its likely possible they'll tweak that law. Thats pretty harsh. Between now and 4 years from now (if the count starts now) they'll change that up so it isn't a one shoe fits everyone type of law. We all know how that harms more than helps.
I understand the 'career welfare' peeps that coz this type of drastic legislation and I think we all understand some of the games being played out there.. but on the other hand, games are being played on both sides.
The part of the news that disturbed me the most was that they are going to allow welfare (card$) to be used at fa$t food places. Now that is just freakin greed by the fast food industry and in NO WAY helps achieve good nutrition for the needy as it is designed to do. I don't believe groceries paid for by welfare/tax dollars is suppose to accelerate or result in heart attacks & strokes.
