Fewer than 4,000 adults in the southern state receive welfare, even as poverty is soaring. How Georgia declared war on its poorest citizens—leaving them to fight for themselves.

Great Post and rebuttal to She-run-run-run, PoliticsNation. Her and TOT's blogs bring to mind the castigation of whole GROUPS of individuals thus depriving them of their individuality. Whether it be Liberals, the Homeless (see Sherans heartless post on this group) Welfare recipients, humans receiving foodstamps which includes malnourished starving babies, Medicare, Medicaid, etc. etc.

For some forsaken reason TOT and Sheran feel THREATENED by these people and it is easy for them to group all of them into one evil money sucking body of life and they are hell bent on condemning them all. This tactic is THEIR war on poverty.

Good link, PolNat. But note that "Georgia is not one of those states" - according to your link - because:

"Combine an all-Republican state government out to make a name for itself as tough on freeloaders; a state welfare commissioner so zealous about slashing the rolls that workers say she handed out Zero candy bars to emphasize her goal of zero welfare; and federal rules that, regardless of who's in the White House, give states the leeway to use the 1996 law's requirement for "work activities"—the same provision that Republicans have charged President Obama wants to unfairly water down—to slam the door in the face of the state's neediest."

So the thrust of the article is that Georgia is at the opposite end of the spectrum from the "extreme abuse" reported in Sheran's link. So if choosing, which should the taxpayers prefer? The state which "slams the door in the face of the neediest" - or the one that lets tax dollars be used for gambling, drug/alcohol use and abuse, and in strip clubs.

I think your system has to "go tough," otherwise you get the abuse. The "neediest" should have to prove their need and the system should monitor expenditures so that wefare tax dollars don't pay strippers.

Yes - it's a great weekend for (in my best Howard Cosell impression) "the National Football League."

Enjoy.

Is there some place you can go to look up 'the red state's response to Sandy'. Could you be refering to the power crew from Alabama that drove up to help only to be turned away because they were not union.

ASmith: they are still waiting in Nawlins darlin.

Well then, we must thwart the Tea Partiers and raise the debt ceiling while BHO encourages the wealthy to contribute more. Balance the books so to speak. Not cook 'em.

sebekm commented on Wednesday, Jan 16, 2013 at 13:55 PM

IMHO - the administration has correctly admitted they do not have the legal authority to arbitrarily and unilaterally raise the debt ceiling. I would not have expected them to make that admission if they were going to do it.

I hope no one turns him in for fraud. If the GOP finds out he's receiving benefits and having a good time-he could end up losing his benefits.
