Hire more inspectors for surprise visits. The way they used to! Go to the bathroom and check for men's toiletries, clothes, and prescription labels. Too many women on welfare are living with men rather then marrying and they know they can't get caught! If one baby is born and they can't provide for their children why do we keep picking up the bill and allow these women to bear more children!
Uhum.. Why do we keep allowing these men to bear children and expecting the woman and state to take the responsibility? The women stay and raise, the men do one. Are you suggesting that fathers should bear no responsibility? Why are fathers choosing not to marry? To suggest your argument is completely biased would be an understatement.
I agree very much that we need to have more government inspectors to catch fraud. They would pay for their own salaries many, many times over. However, we need to focus more on the big fraud - done by companies and individuals that can pay it back - not the little fraud.
Fraud is not only an individual thing. If welfare fraud was stopped, our state and national budgets would not be that much more likely to balance. Most really HUGE fraud is on a contractor or legislative basis. You can have a whole town full of fraudulent disability and welfare payments, and they won't match the granting of one bad contract to one sloppy contractor, or the approval of one new military plane for a purpose that's already obsolete.
I think we're being trained by some very "morally outraged" folks to look at people in need as crooks. In the meantime, crooked doctors who bill medicare and meicaid, military contractors who build bad equipment and overcharge for it and lobbyists that push for approval of bills that benefit a very few at the expense of the rest of us are basically getting away with multi-million dollar murder.
Inspection is a great idea. They do it for disability fraud cases all the tme.
How about better education and jobs so that so many people don't have to live on social programs?
Slippery slope suggesting we can stop women from having more babies.
Are we thinking sterilization? Or financial disincentive -- change the rules so that more kids does not equal more benefits?
Regardless, making it harder not easier to get family planning services is going in the wrong direction!

Understand these are "OUR IDEAS", no mention of political party. I'll start it off.1. Eliminate government cell phones! This is one of the most abused programs out there! Many have these phones and an Iphone as backup! Needs Policing!

One of the favorite claims by the Right-wing is that once a citizen receives welfare, they are wedded to it for life. Now I know (hope) that is just so much hyperbole but the point they are making is that once welfare is given, it is a long-term affair.Can any of you who believe that PROVE...
