As a fiscal conservative, no amount of waste in gov't is beyond my concern.
Whether its a million federally allocated dollars to make Chicagoans feel better about their car purchases, having a fighter jet built in eight different states (to maximize defense sector jobs), or waste in welfare, every little bit counts.
I care just as much about farm subsidies and other forms of corporate welfare, but the conversation seems to have already been started nationally on that front.
No caring about how much we're spending is what got us here.
Just so you know Canada, Australia, The UK, and The Netherlands all have workfare programs. Might I also mention that they, Canada and Australia specifically have much more sensible immigration systems than our own.
Where we stand, it is solely your opinion that a work requirement would be needlessly harmful to the undeserving. While there are many examples of workfare operating without hick ups.
