Agreed, and if anything, I recommended this years ago, even wrote my senator, "Hillary" of all people. Basically it goes liek this. Hire more case workers, and administration people. The cost of their salaries is directly offset by the savings by many means, they are:
1. More workers means more scrutiny.
2. Design a law where rent, food, and all necessary bills are paid directly by the State, No checks, no nothing.
3. Make food stamps valid for no name, or none brand name foods where applicable. (Watch that market boom)
Three minor changes, that take political courage.
Interestingly, I did receive a "form" letter back from Hillary, and I wasn't expecting one, but at least they wrote back.
Oh, and in case anyone is wondering, the same economic logic works with cracking down on illegal immigration. Far less expensive to hire more administration, police, buying buses, you get the picture. Just ask California, how much it costs them each year to feed the illegal problem, and tell me it wouldn't be cheaper to clean it up. Not to mention, talk about jobs, jobs, jobs..
This Obama clown is a community organizer, let's face it. The guy is a lightweight.
