Re: “House Committee Votes to Starve Welfare Kids for Making Bad Grades

Conservatives demand that the government reflect and enforce Christian dicta on abortion and marriage, yet raise absolute hell when it reflects and enforces the Christian dicta on charity, the poor, and community. I have always found this very strange.

This bill is appalling and unconstitutional. And I do not buy either the "individual responsibility" or the "welfare abuse" arguments. As to the latter. If you see real abuse of benefits, report it. Pretty simple. And since everyone who promotes this argument claims to have personally witnesses a thousand instances of welfare abuse, they have the power to combat abuse.

And as to the former, we live in a society, people. We ALL get more out of it than we put in. This bill and the whole anti-benefit sentiment are nothing more than trying to pull up the ladder after you have used it to get to safety and claiming that the people left drowning deserve it.
