[quote:Anonymous Coward 13076957:MV8yMTIzMDA2XzM1ODI0MzY2X0FEODBDOEM3] Here's a radical concept. Let's split up our welfare. Those who paid into the system and have fallen on hard times. They paid into it. Let's not hassle them too much. Same with the elderly. Leave them alone. This was an insurance plan that was forced up us. Last I checked, if I don't pay my car insurance and wreck my car, the insurance company won't pay to have it fixed. But, we are talking about human beings and children. So.... Those who have not paid into the system, they get 2 years. That's it. In those 2 years, they are required to take life survival classes and keep some kind of job. Required to show up and participate in order to continue receiving benefits. Instead of EBT or foodstamps. In large areas, have a place they can either go and eat or get something like meals on wheels. That way children will get to eat. It's nice to dream about it, but I don't think it will ever happen.

"A Tennessee lawmaker is pushing a controversial new bill that would tie welfare benefits to students' performance in school."
"Republican state Sen. Stacey Campfield last week introduced the legislation, which calls for the state to cut welfare benefits to parents whose kids don't do well in class. Critics are already panning the proposal as unfair, and one that could hurt students in the end -- but Campfield is defending his idea, which he says would force parents to take a more active role in their children’s education."
“We’re not asking children to re-write the Magna Carta,” Campfield told FoxNews.com Monday. “A D-minus gets you through.”

I wonder if it would play towards multi-child families
