    Wow, this girl has a great plan! Love the last thing she would do the best.

    This was written by a 21 yr old female who gets it. It's her future she's worried about and this is how she feels about the social welfare big government state that she's being forced to live in! These solutions are just common sense in her opinion.

    This was in the Waco Tribune Herald, Waco , TX , Nov 18, 2011

    PUT ME IN CHARGE . . .

    Put me in charge of food stamps. I'd get rid of Lone Star cards; no cash for Ding Dongs or Ho Ho's, just money for 50-pound bags of rice and beans, blocks of cheese and all the powdered milk you can haul away. If you want steak and frozen pizza, then get a job.

    Put me in charge of Medicaid. The first thing I'd do is to get women Norplant birth control implants or tubal ligations. Then, we'll test recipients for drugs, alcohol, and nicotine. If you want to reproduce or use drugs, alcohol, or smoke, then get a job.

    Put me in charge of government housing. Ever live in a military barracks? You will maintain our property in a clean and good state of repair. Your home" will be subject to inspections anytime and possessions will be inventoried. If you want a plasma TV or Xbox 360, then get a job and your own place.

    In addition, you will either present a check stub from a job each week or you will report to a "government" job. It may be cleaning the roadways of trash, painting and repairing public housing, whatever we find for you. We will sell your 22 inch rims and low profile tires and your blasting stereo and speakers and put that money toward the "common good.."

    Before you write that I've violated someone's rights, realize that all of the above is voluntary. If you want our money, accept our rules. Before you say that this would be "demeaning" and ruin their "self esteem," consider that it wasn't that long ago that taking someone else's money for doing absolutely nothing was demeaning and lowered self esteem.

    If we are expected to pay for other people's mistakes we should at least attempt to make them learn from their bad choices. The current system rewards them for continuing to make bad choices.

    AND While you are on Gov't subsistence, you no longer can VOTE! Yes, that is correct. For you to vote would be a conflict of interest. You will voluntarily remove yourself from voting while you are receiving a Gov't welfare check. If you want to vote, then get a job.

    ... and the great state of Ohio voted for the status quo - which includes so few people working that the state's food stamp budget is maxed out. I wonder if the Obamaphone woman will thank the Prez for imposing a weight loss program on her and her fellow Ohioans.

    Bravo to this young lady!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The last is the best. Allowing people who feed at the public trough the ability to vote for more free benefits is how we got in this mess and how that sorry P.O.S. Obama got re-elected. That and the GOP hand picking the weakest candidate they could find to run against the President with the worst record in the Country's history.

    I'd bet dollars to dog turds that if her suggestions were enacted, the welfare roles would drop like a rock. Never happen as long as the welfare class gets to vote though. They are smart enough to game the system and smart enough to vote for the person who offers them the most free stuff.

    I am all in favor of cutting their food stamps, welfare and length of unemployment payments. Also more coal and industrial jobs should be eliminated by the EPA and other regulatory agencies. Then additional taxes should be applied to those still working and companies still in business.

    This is just the beginning. There will have to be more cuts on government handouts and there will be a lot of angry people because of that just like in Greece. That's what Romney kept on telling Americans, the government must not increase taxes and decrease regulations so that small businesses grow to creat jobs so that people will have means to feed themselves.
