The President has proposed a work requirement for Food Stamps and requiring proof that anyone collecting the Earned Income Credit is eligible to work in the United States. Many states, including ones that are very Liberal have already enacted similar requirements over the years with positive effects. The target group is able bodied persons without dependents - the President is not going after single moms or people with children or other dependents.

You make a good point. Drug use may be more of a problem. Most people would rather support themselves than have to completely rely on food stamps or other government benefits.
